I have been doing Slimmingworld since 1st Jan and have lost 11lb to date, quite pleased but I do have a lot to lose and got quite demotivated that I would stick to diet religiously and STS or lose 1/2lb when others wouldn't stick to it at all and lose 3-4lb! one woman my size lost 9lb in first wk! I decided to leave group and do it alone so wouldnt get competitively jelous!!
Anyway, decided to try my best to stick to SW 5 days and have 2 500cal days to see if that will speed up weight loss a little...I have a holiday booked in 20wks time! Have had a fortnight of eating out, takeaways, chocolate etc...all the things I hadnt eaten since last year, but still being kinda sensible and 2 500cal days. But started 'properly' Sunday...wk so far and planned:
Monday SW + 15syns
Tuesday SW + 22syns (oops)
Wed Will be 500 cals
Thur-Sat SW with cpl of meals out..
Question is...do any of you have wks similar to my plans and have you lost weight on it?? I have looked a couple of threads and full of great useful info but when I look at peoples stats they havent really lost any weight..dont know whether its because most of us just starting and new to 5:2 or whether the diet seems to maintain weight rather than lose??
Sorry for long post!! xx
