Will I lose weight on this programme?

The advice you receive is evidenced based and in line with current NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines for weight management, this advice has also been personalised based on the answers you provided during your profile set up.  Nevertheless, changes to your weight will require behaviour change. The programme is designed to support and empower you to take meaningful steps to achieve a healthier weight but ultimately you will be your own driver to success. 

Tip: Completing your weekly checklists will help keep you on track with your weight loss goals.

I missed my session, what should I do?

I missed my session, what should I do?
‘Your coaching sessions are there to provide additional support and therefore it is very important that you attend. If you are unable to attend your original session date and time, you can reschedule your appointment in the WW App right up until your session start time, subject to availability’. You can do this by clicking the session and editing the date and time’

I’m trying to edit the day of my session, but I can’t see any available time slots, why is this?

When trying to reschedule a coaching call, you will be able to view and select a new session time, providing there is availability within the coaching team. If the coaching team do not have any availability around the day of your session, you will not see any available time slots. Although this eventuality is unlikely, we recommend you try to attend your original session or reschedule with as much notice as possible to avoid disappointment.

Can I skip an online module?

Try to think of your online modules as the pieces of a puzzle, having all the pieces makes for a much clearer picture! We recommend you work through all 12 online modules; they have been created with you in mind and are your steppingstones to success.

Do I need any measurement equipment?

The only mandatory measurement across the programme is weight therefore you will be required to have weighing scales.

How frequently should I take my weight?

Weigh yourself weekly and log that weight in your ‘Health Tracker’, this will help you to track your progress and achievements. If possible, try to weigh yourself at the same day and time each week.

* Logging your weight weekly is a requirement of all users on our programme, if you do not have access to scales at home, have a think about how you will weigh yourself. Could you borrow scales from a friend or family member? Alternatively, you can often weigh yourself at your GP surgery, local pharmacy, or leisure centre.
