We understand that the journey to lose weight is a long and arduous road. It takes a lot of courage to seek help and even more grit to see it through.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, nearly 1 in 2 (46%) Australians aged 16–85 experience a mental disorder during their lifetime.
