The Personal Cost of Obesity Report

“The Personal Cost of Weight Issues in Australia” is now published. Thank you to all WIN members who contributed and provided thoughts and shared perspectives. You can download a copy of the report here.

The report looks at the reality of obesity through the eyes of those who know the day to day experience of living in a larger body. It is a well-considered and heartfelt account of why we need to change the story, and why oversimplification of messages does nothing but stigmatise those affected.


The Sydney Morning Herald has carried an article about WIN and the report today. A big shout out to Andrew Wilson for putting himself out there – so that we can spread awareness, educate, advocate, and fight weight stigma!
