"This course has had a positive impact on my life. I am much more aware of the importance of having and maintaining a healthy lifestyle now.”
Alan, 55, decided to join the programme following advice to do so from his GP.
He found that he thoroughly enjoyed the group sessions, both because of the amount of information he gained on how to lead a healthy lifestyle and the interaction he had with other group members.
Alan says that setting specific targets, with the guidance of the LWTC Facilitator, was a particularly effective method of benefitting his health. Between week one and week six of the programme, he lost 3 kilograms – the second greatest weight loss in the group!
He now looks forward to continuing to reduce his weight and sugar levels.
Alan said he would highly recommend the NHS DPP to others due to the friendly nature of the Facilitator and the structure of the programme. He now feels much more aware of the importance of having and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. He said: “This course has had a positive impact on my life!”
