"Murrumbidgee Medicare Local's Healthy Lifestyle Program provide me with insight to take charge"

About: Rural Primary Health Service (Murrumbidgee Medicare Local)

(as a service user),

I recently attended the Healthy Lifestyle Program that was held in Narrandera on most days. Originally I went so that my patients could see that my patients could see that I took an active interest in what they were being referred to. I was actually very impressed so signed up for the program.

As a result of this, it has made me more aware of healthier food options and I have been applying this to my daily lifestyle.

I have actively lost 5 kgs and reduced my clothes size.

My next challenge is to become more active and give up smoking. (Small steps - big results) without the increase in weight.

Thank you for the insight to take charge and make these changes.

It was very well organised and allowed people interact and share their stories.

I'm feeling much better and happier for these changes.
