What is a Weight Loss Club?
These informal clubs are springing up all over the world. In the United Kingdom they are known as Slimming Clubs. Usually a group of friends, neighbours, relatives or work colleagues meet on a regular basis with a common goal - to lose weight. Primarily they meet to support each other in their efforts to lose weight and eat a more healthy diet. Some even add in some easy exercise for good measure. Weight Loss Clubs are great because unlike other meeting style weight loss groups, you usually know the people in your club so there is no uneasiness or need to break the ice. These groups help you set personal weight losing goals, exchange healthy recipes and generally encourage you to achieve your goals.
Why have I not heard more about these clubs?
In the past, these Weight Loss Clubs have not always been as successful as they might have been. One thing that they were missing was the guidance from professional dieticians, doctors and physical therapists. If you were lucky, perhaps you could find some of the necessary information through a friend or another club member. No matter how well meaning the group, without the proper tools and information, some members will invariably fail to lose weight and the group will usually break up within a few months.
How can my Weight Loss Club get better results?
First of all you need to make sure that every member sets a healthy and realistic weight-loss goal. If everyone is losing weight at their own healthy rate then your club has a better chance of staying together. Meet often but not so often that it interferes or becomes a burden to your members. Everyone must be getting something out of the meetings so plan them carefully. Your meetings should be fun, entertaining and informative.
