Roy's Story

Posted: Mon, 19 Dec 2022 11:27

Roy, 75, was worried about his health after having coronavirus.

"In October 2020 I visited my doctor, having been concerned about my breathing difficulties. The doctor thought I had Long Covid, but also thought that losing weight would help, and suggested I join a weight management course."

At first, he was sceptical, having tried diets before without success. He did however, agree to try the programme with Weight Management Leicestershire.

"Some 12 weeks later I have lost 8% of my body weight, which would have been impossible without this course."

Part of his success he credits to his adviser, Kruti and their weekly video calls.

"Kruti showed interest and encouragement, and provided very useful data every week. She certainly made it possible for me."

Following his programme, Roy observes "There has been some improvement in my health, and I intend to lose more weight through healthy eating."

"I would recommend this course to anyone seeking to lose weight."

The top five things that Roy found most useful:

  1. Setting goals both weekly and long-term
  2. Menu planning and only buying what I needed
  3. Reducing portion sizes
  4. I found I still needed snacks between meals but switched to healthier alternatives, mostly fruit
  5. Encouragement from Kruti, and encouragement and support from my family.
