Weight loss support - GP?

Hi

Has anyone ever had support off their GP with weight loss? I'm considering going as I'm now very overweight and feeling desperate sad. I've always been a big girl but as I'm getting older I'm becoming more aware of the health Implications. It's frustrating as I'm not a smoker and I'm tee total so it's my weight that lets me down

If they would help me what sort of thing could I expect?

Thanks

It varies from trust to trust. Here they will offer you 12 weeks slimming club membership or gym membership. Some practices have weight loss support groups. I would think your GP would be supportive and pleased that you have taken the decision to tackle your weight.
