  • The kids loved the pizza and the soup when I made

    never tasted before because they are on a low
    budget
  • Ive lost 8 lbs since coming to the class
    thanks, couldnt do it without the support

17
Physical activities
  • Its great having a keep fit group in our area
    it saves on buses and its a really great way to
    meet new people
  • Feel better in myself and want to do more
    physical things
  • Found the walk enjoyable on many levels meeting
    new people from different backgrounds and age
    groups and also keeping fit

18
Health Checks and Talks
  • I feel I can open up to you, not like the GP or
    other nurses. I have told you about . I have
    not told anyone that before
  • All information was relevant learned a lot
    about blood pressure and measurements of the body
  • This has been really helpful I now understand
    more about REM sleep and why my baby keeps waking
    up

19
Mental Wellbeing
  • I feel its helping me identify what is causing
    me stressI get a chance to relax and have a
    laugh and learn stress management techniques
  • I find a big change in myself and Im actually
    starting to like myself, plus I am feeling more
    confident
  • Gave my daughters a hand massage, they said it
    was great. Its the most peace and quiet Ive had
    for ages, they went to bed straight away

20
Community Capacity Building
  • Getting involved with the project turned my life
    around. I used to be fat and unfit now Im
    healthy, working and want to learn more.
  • Being a member of this group opened so many doors
    for me
  • Made me more confident and able to respect
    myself. I have grown in strength and, in turn,
    this helps my son
