Join the winning weigh

FORFAR residents are invited to pop along to Winning Weigh weight management classes in the town and hear about healthy lifestyles and lose weight.

‘The Winning Weigh’ is a twelve-week programme run by trained staff from Angus Community Health Partnership. The classes start on Wednesday, August 17 and will be held in Lochside Leisure Centre at 12.30pm.

The Winning Weigh programme is not a diet as it aims to help people change their eating and exercise habits which in turn help them to lose weight. It is a friendly and interactive course designed specifically for people who are serious about taking on the challenge of losing weight.

Places are limited so anyone who is interested in joining can book a place by calling 01307 475228.

At each session trained staff will be available offering practical advice and encouragement to help people to adopt healthier lifestyle choices, improve fitness levels and reduce their body mass index.

Ongoing support will be available after the programme is completed, as staff will be running free drop-in sessions where people can just pop-in and be weighed, as well as have a chat.

Kaye Bruce, Keep well Health Coach, said: “Winning Weigh classes do not just focus on diet, the classes also offer support for people to encourage them to adopt healthier lifestyles. The programme is aimed at men and women who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of more than 25.

“This new twelve-week programme will cover many health topics and people will hear about healthier eating, eating the right amounts of food for a healthy weight, getting enough exercise and making good lifestyle choices.”
