Module Summary 1 – Your Healthy Weight
Your Healthy Weight
During these 12 weeks, remember to update your weight in your ‘My Health Tracker’ weekly. It’s normal to see some fluctuations in your weight, so don’t let one increased reading de-motivate you! Instead look at the overall trend from your start date.
Research suggests that behaviour is the most important component in health status. This means that the things we do most often, or our habits, are key to our wellbeing.
5 top tips before you start:
