Weight loss transitions: Five things you’ll understand once you’ve been to LighterLife groups

February 6, 2014 - Psychology

ideaWant to lose weight? LighterLife isn’t just about what’s on your plate, it’s also about what’s going on in your head which leads you to overeat. During our group sessions, we explore the things that lead to overeating and give you the tools to keep the weight off. Here are five things our members understand after they’ve been to our groups…

1. This is not a reward. 

junk food

If hunger isn’t the problem, then food isn’t the solution.

2. It’s never too late to stop yourself and turn around.

Even if you slip up and eat something you shouldn’t, that doesn’t mean you should give up. Take it one day at a time. If it went wrong today, put it right tomorrow.

3. No one is ‘naturally fat’.

If you tell yourself ‘I’ll always be fat. That’s just who I am,’ then you’re doing yourself a disservice. Seeing things in extremes with no middle ground means you’re not giving yourself room to change.

4. This isn’t a reason to panic.


If you’re invited out with friends, you don’t have to overeat just because the food is there. You are in charge of what goes into your mouth and you have the power to speak up for yourself. Use it!

5. You are not a tree.


If you don’t like where you are, change it. The power lies with you.

LighterLife helps you lose weight and keep it off for good through group counselling sessions to address your relationship with food. To find out more about LighterLife groups, click here.

    Hi Jackie,

    Thanks for getting in touch. If you’re looking to lose weight then we recommend you do our LighterLife Total or Lite programmes. You can lose up to one stone a month on Total and the plan involves having 4 Foodpacks a day and attending a weekly group session with a LighterLife Counsellor. For your nearest group, and to find out more info, visit Or, email us your number and one of our team can give you a call.
