What are these programmes?

Weight Watchers and Slimming world, do they need an introduction?

BeeZee Bodies have partnered with both Slimming World and Weight Watchers to be able to support people to take part in a course in their local area. There are over 90 meetings that you can join in with across Bedfordshire and so there are lots of choices on where and when you choose to attend.

What are we offering?

We are offering two types of approach:

  1. If you live in Central Bedfordshire or Bedford Borough, are looking to lose weight and meet certain criteria* then we offer half price vouchers to attend a 12 week course of your choice..
  2. If you live in Central Bedfordshire or Bedford Borough, are looking to lose weight and meet the above criteria and financial criteria** we have secured a free 12 week voucher to attend a local programme. In fact you can attend anywhere you like, it doesn’t have to be in Bedfordshire. You will get the same support as in option one to maximize your chances of achieving your goals.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the changes that you are making fit into your life. Think about your goals… do you want to lose weight for a short period of time, or for the rest of your life? If, like most people, you want to make lasting change, you must create become habits that you can do for the rest of your life, not feel deprived and plan for the things that could cause you to fail before they happen. This is what we call ‘planning for success’. If you enjoy the Slimming World experience and want to continue, then by all means do, but just be aware that you will be responsible for the cost.
