Slimmers’ efforts to be rewarded at ceremony

Lincolnshire slimmers will be rewarded for their weight loss success at a ceremony in Horncastle on Friday 3rd October.

Awards will be presented to ten people who have lost weight through the Weight Watchers on-referral scheme, commissioned by public health at Lincolnshire County council.

Three further awards will be presented to GP surgeries in the county whose referrals to the scheme have been most successful.

Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell, executive member for Public Health at Lincolnshire County Council, says: “Congratulations to all the winners! Reaching a healthy weight can really improve your quality of life. It benefits your physical health, as well as your confidence and general wellbeing too.

“The county council continues to commission Weight Watchers, exercise-on-referral and health trainers to support people who wish to make healthier choices. Sustaining a healthy weight can improve health in the longer term, lowering the risk of related complications in the future.”

Adults with a Body Mass Index of 30 or over can be referred by their GP into the Weight Watchers scheme, and 4,000 adults per year in Lincolnshire are currently benefitting from a free 12-week programme.

Visit your GP if you are concerned about your weight or to see if you could be referred onto the scheme.
