This post is a personal review of my recent experience with London Weight Management, and how they tried to sell me a $4000+ slimming package. Close friends would know I've become more conscious of my weight a few weeks ago, after seeing how dancing doesn't seem to help me burn off excess calories anymore. Partly out of personal motivation to lose weight and curiosity, I visited London Weight Management recently to see if they could help. What resulted was a treatment that barely reduced my weight, which I felt was totally not worth the $4,000+ package they tried to hard-sell me into buying. A few weeks ago, I was offered 5 free treatments at London Weight Management via my ez-link rewards app Perx, where I was redirected to key in my personal details to make an appointment via an online link. The folks at London Weight Management were really efficient - the very next afternoon, I received a call from them to fix my appointment date and time. I requested for a slot 2 weekends after, and they tried to push me to come sooner, claiming that there was a "limited time offer" to claim my free treatments. Of course, that line fell flat when I told them curtly that I would be overseas for an entire week. Suddenly, the "limited time offer" didn't seem to apply anymore. That was the first red flag for me in my experience with London Weight Management. Two days before my appointment date, they called me to confirm that I would still be turning up for my appointment. When the day came, they also called me 30 minutes before my appointment time to make sure that I was on the way. Wait a minute, what's with the anxiety? *rolls eyes* That was my second red flag. When I arrived, I was first directed to a weighing machine where my height and weight was recorded (54.7kg). I was then whisked into a brightly-lit consultation room, where a therapist spent some time asking about my lifestyle habits, my problem areas that I was dissatisfied with, before asking me to strip so that she could take some photos and measurements. Here were more red flags: - She told me I was overweight. (My BMI is 21. Overweight is when you're above 23.) - She told me I needed to lose 7kg. (Which would bring me to the borderline of underweight and normal weight.) - She deliberately bent down to take photos of my tummy, thighs and arms at a very unflattering angle. (Even a fool knows that when you take photos from bottom up, you're going to look fat!) Here's a recent photo of me. I'll let you be the judge - do you think I honestly need to lose 7kg?
