I am an intelligent person.
I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me.
Every time I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my ego or dull my senses, I will remember, even though I overeat in private my excess weight is there for all the world to see.
TAKE OFF WEIGHT NATURALLY CLUBS aim to provide support and encouragement to all members to enable them to make healthy lifestyle changes that will result in lifelong, healthy weight control.
Continue to be active in the community through leadership and support in the field of weight loss and weight control. This is maintained by:
Each club has been formed to help members lose weight sensibly with the aid of mutual encouragement and group therapy. Members are encouraged to alter their eating pattern to a program which will enable them to lose weight and then having lost their weight, maintain it at a level that is suitable for them, and to attend the weekly weigh-in and meeting.
Within 14 days of joining, a doctor’s certificate must be obtained and handed in to the club, stating that you are fit to lose weight and the weight your doctor wishes you to achieve. This becomes your goal weight – the weight you will be striving for.
TOWN requires the doctor’s certificate so that the weight set by you and your doctor ensures a realistic weight, so that it would be a healthy weight and as such is set by a person who knows your own medical history, which is a safeguard for you, and your club.
Clubs are encouraged to invite persons with expert knowledge, such as doctors and dieticians, to speak to members regarding nutrition, balanced eating habits, etc.
TOWN aims to provide information and skill to our members to enable them to make healthy lifestyle changes that can result in lifelong, healthy, weight control and to prevent many of the lifestyle diseases common in Australia today.
