Your own personal support group

If you’re having a tough day, or even a tough week, it can be hard to find someone who’ll understand to reach out to.

Our face-to-face groups give you fully structured support from our expert Counsellors and others who are trying to lose weight. Our meetings will help you to understand the psychology behind weight loss and give you the tools you need for long-term success.

Our weekly meetings are open to everyone on a LighterLife plan, offering you all the advice and help you need to achieve and maintain the shape you want and the life you want. We also run pop-in sessions at our local centres so you can catch up, pick up Foodpacks or have a chat about your progress.

When you join a face-to-face group you benefit from:

  • Get structured advice and support from men and women just like you
  • The experience and expertise of our Counsellors, who guide every session
  • Keep track of your progress with our confidential weekly weigh-ins
  • A proven opportunity to boost your chances of weight loss, based on our extensive research
  • Hundreds of groups across the UK, so you can find one close to you

Claire's story

“Group is why it works!” 

Julia lost 4st 9lb to become the more energetic, healthy mum her daughter needed.

“It was during a family holiday to Scotland. when my daughter, Alex, was excited to go horse riding and asked if I’d do it too. My first thought was that I couldn’t let her down, but I hadn’t ridden since my twenties and I wasn’t as slim as I was back then. As soon as we got there, the riding instructor took one look at me and swapped my horse. Out came a Shire horse replacement, a breed that is often used for heavy lifting or for carrying carts!

After almost five months on the LighterLife TotalFast Plan I’d dropped four dress sizes and was feeling more confident than ever.
