Class for helping you to lose weight

Forfar people are invited to sign up for free weight management classes to hear about healthy lifestyles and lose weight.

‘The Winning Weigh’ weight management programme run by trained staff from Angus Community Health Partnership. Classes last one hour and are held in the Lochside Leisure Centre in Forfar every Wednesday at 12.30pm and every Thursday in the Town Hall in Montrose at 3pm.

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

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.

The programme is for men and women who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or above.

Kaye Bruce, Keep Well Health Coach, said: “Winning Weigh classes are not just focused on diets. The programme covers 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

“Winning weigh classes on this rolling programme are continuing to be very popular.”
