Testimonials

Scarborough & Whitby

I am taking the opportunity to write a few words to commend the work of sally, frank and the team involved in the NHS health and wellbeing module.

When I started, I was over 97kgs and was feeling quite miserable about my excess weight, my self-esteem is always low and I do suffer from anxiety attacks also some things were not good.

The team have been so beneficial to me, so much so that after 12 weeks I’ve lost over 13kgs. I am so proud of myself and myself esteem is really beginning to return and looking at the new slimmer me has put a real spring in my step,

I am feeling good.

I could not have done it without the course, the guys tend to everyone’s personal needs and give unending support and great common sense advice.

I think the service is second to none and is the way forward in tackling the well-publicised problem of obesity.

At last we are doing it instead of talking about it, well done everyone”.
