Maintaining your weight is a key factor in personal wellbeing, in addition to lowering the risk of different diseases, conditions and cancers associated with being overweight and weight gain.
Throughout the UK, many people suffer from weight gain. Statistically, 1 in 4 adults across the UK are clinically obese (a term used to describe a person overweight and carrying a lot of body fat).
The innovative MyWeightMatters programme available through Essex Wellbeing Services aims to help you to manage your weight, improve your health and enhance your quality of life.
