Choose to Loose

Choose to Loose

Overindulging over Christmas and then wishing we hadn’t eaten so much is a very common New Year feeling for many of us. To reduce weight is often high on the list of New Year resolutions.

Now help is on hand with the launch on 13th January 2014 of a new weight management web page on NHS Forth Valley’s staff and public websites.

‘Choose to Lose’ is made up of 4 main sections:

  1. Are You Ready?  Helping you change old habits and get motivated
  2. Eat Well, Feel Great Helping you set achievable goals and get tips on healthy eating
  3. Get Active Your Way finding an activity that suits you. Discover what’s going on in your area
  4. Keep Going featuring top tips on how to stay motivated and maintain a healthier weight and lifestyle for good

The webpage will offer:

  • practical advice and information
  • downloadable resources, worksheets and links to mobile apps
  • links to local groups and activities

It’s also hoped to enlist the help of GPs, practice and primary care staff and community pharmacies to signpost people to the new web pages.
