Weight Management


Why you should lose weight 

Maintaining a healthy weight isn’t just good for your physical health, it plays a vital part in your mental well-being too. If you’re overweight, you’re more likely to suffer medical conditions such as Coronary heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, Coronary heart disease and certain cancers, including breast and bowel. You also more likely to suffer a stroke and a heart attack than others of the same age. There is strong evidence that weight issues also link to depression.

How we can help you to lose weight 

We offer you lots of options to understand food choices and to help you find tasty, small changes to help you lose weight for good. We run groups and one to one sessions with our trained and friendly registered nutritionists. They are also fun and sociable, giving you the chance meet people who, just like you, want to get fit and lose weight. If this isn’t for you, we can offer some residents free access to 12 weeks of Slimming World, Weight Watchers and Trim and Train in Southend through our local partnerships.

We encourage a balanced approach including both what you eat and helping you to move more, as well as helping you to track your progress - we’ll be there every step of the way, and to cheer on every pound you lose. 

Why not also try our healthy walks, lasting between 30 mins and 1 hour, led by a fully trained walk leader, we’ll take you out and about around Southend.
