Managing my weight

If you are trying to manage your weight you will need to think about what you eat and how you exercise.

Keeping to a healthy weight is important for your overall health and can help reduce your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

My Weight Matters

Do you want to lose weight and get fitter?

The award-winning My Weight Matters programme is for adults who want to lose weight and be more active.

A range of organisations are working with Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE) to offer the popular 12-week programme, which delivers a common sense approach to losing weight which focuses on eating a healthy balanced diet, managing your portions and helping you be more active in your daily life .

Since 2007 the programme has helped thousands of adults to lose weight, get fitter and enjoy a healthier relationship with food, by empowering them to take control and achieve their goals.

The programme is FREE for Uttlesford residents.

There are no groups - you just turn up for your weekly weigh-in and get individual support.
