Dear community members,
When first created, back in 2013, this community was originally set up with the NHS as a space to support members following the NHS 12 weight loss plan. Over the past 8 years, this community has grown and developed into an incredibly large and varied space supporting over 100,000 members following many different methods of weight loss. Over the years and particularly in the last few, the space has been solely managed by a team of volunteer admins who started as community members and have dedicated their time to managing the space and membership.
To reflect this growth and the variety of support now offered in the community, we’ve decided along with input from the Admin team, to update the community branding to be more inclusive of all the different methods of safe weight loss! This means that this community will continue to support those undergoing the NHS 12 Week Weight Loss Plan, and it will also now reflect the other methods of weight loss this space supports.
Over the next week, you may notice some visual changes to the community, including the new name “Weight Loss Support”, a URL change, logo and banner image changes, and changes to the community description and links displayed, as the community moves away from its current NHS branding.
Aside from this, all other aspects of the community will remain the same and you will be able to continue sharing information and receiving support as you always have done! It is a welcome space for everyone who is looking to lose weight to find support from others on a similar journey and is open to all the many different methods of safe weight loss, as well as continuing to support those undergoing the NHS 12 week weight loss plan.
Keep an eye out for the changes coming soon to your community space, and as always, don't hesitate to get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
