“Nothing I tried before worked, I had no confidence in myself being able to lose weight. My dietitian Rosemary was amazing. As soon as I started changing my diet, the weight was just dropping off! Although I have physically changed, the biggest part has been the mental change – I am more positive and confident now and my biggest problem is that none of my clothes fit!”

Andy is 22 and lost 30kg last year with the support of our Way to Wellness weight management programme.
