    Help, I am stuck.

    Hi everyone, I need some advice as I seem stuck on 13'5. Started in new year, weighed in at home 14'10, has a nice steady loss to 13'8 and slowed over summer, had holiday in August and came back 13'13, focussed again and now at 13'6 and 13'5 for 3 weeks. Can anyone give me some advice how to get going again, would like to get to 12' 10.

    I do mainly green through the week , for ease of eating at work. So quorn features quite a bit.

    Diary for today.

    Coffee black at home

    B. Muller lite passion fruit yog, banana, satsuma, some grapes, 1 oz porridge. Cup coffee with semi.

    L. Pasta shapes, sauce of onion, fennel seeds, mixed herbs, chicken bovril, diced carrot, garlic, water, carton passata. 2 small t spoons phili lite garlic herb. Salad, celery chopped, spring onion, red pepper, lettuce.
    2 glass water.
    Apple.


    I have a mug shot to have if I need it before I get home

    Tonight, not sure what to have , need some suggestions or it will be tin spaghetti and egg on toast.

    Well, no one responded? I will try and work it out by trial and error.

    No mug shot, too busy at work. Got home at 6.30 really hungry, I get to the stage where I will just eat whatever is available.

    Nicked a piece of garlic bread from kids left over dinner, heated up pasta and sauce same as lunch but put mushy peas over it too. Had 6 tea spoons of lean beef mince bolognese in dolmio original whilst waiting.
    Cup of tea.
    Took kids to swim club
    Came back had vanilla muller lite
    2 glasses water.

    Anyone?

    Not sure if this helps.....

    I have a few green days (same as you - easier at work). I come home from work pooped and need something fairly quick so I do things like:
    Sweet and sour chicken (chicken used as HEXB) Uncle bens light sweet n sour sauce
    beef stroganoff (beef used as HEXB) - I'm no cook so I use Colmans beef stroganoff packet mix = 7 syns. It's supposed to serve 4, but my OH and I have half each!!

    my only little bit of advice is to plan ahead. If I don't I come home from work tired and hungry and end up eating whatever I can get my hands on!

    Best of luck x
    Vicki x

    Maybe try something different think that's what has helped me . I do a mix of red green & ee . What do you have for syns? Are you eating enough . My consultant says it's best to eat regularly to keep the metabolism going I eat 3 meals 3 snacks most days snacks for me are mainly fruit . Also I try & drink plenty . Dont really have many other suggestions but good luck with it .

    I don't know about H. E s, I just picked the breakfast out of one of the magazines and its on ee. So I will follow that.

    Trying to plan ahead, if I have the chicken and jacket salad at lunch, what could I have for dinner tonight? I have a gammon steak, but don't know what carb?


    Really appreciate your help.

    Whilst not following Sw at present, but am in place of losing 7+ st, following my knowledge of various slimming clubs that me gained over my years of swinging up n down on the weight loss journey. But Be careful u is eating enough, its assumed eating real low as in cals will surely lose weight. Well in my travels some of my good losses were when me had eaten well n didnt expect a loss. But good luck n stick on rd, the scales will show a result. I normally weighted in fortnightly now its monthly. Weight loss happens differently for us all

    Thanks everyone. My lunch is changing, now not going to pub, left to my own devices and this is where I could lose the plot. ...

    I have access to tesco so I could revert to green? I can get quorn swedish meat balls, tesco basmsati pouch rice, tin tomatoes or passata, some salad.


    But will that throw my gammon steak for tonight our of the window?

    I used to be confident doing sw, but now trying to lose again I am so unsure.


    Your help and support is really appreciated to get me over this hurdle.

    Really appreciate your help.
    You could still do Green, Red or EE as youve had 1 HEXA and 1 HEXB (Ryvita & cheese/milk) but if you went Green the ham would be your other HEXB (you get 113g) and if you went Red or EE it is obviously free.

    If you do EE you dont *have* to have carbs - its just that you can if you want to, provided 1/3 of all meals is superfree.

    So your day is still entirely open as to which plan you choose, but your HEXBs are used up on Green or EE, whereas you still have 1 HEXB left on Red. You also still have all 15 syns left, and 1 HEXA on Red or Green - youve got plenty of options there still

    6 ryvita cracker bread , 3 diarylea light, cucumber, tomatoes, 6 sliced wafer turkey ham Bernard matthews.

    Black coffee, tea with milk x 2 water, banana

    Quorn swedish meatballs, half pack microwave pouch tesco basmsati half tim chopped toms
    Coffee milk skimmed

    2 teaspoons morrisons tiramasu.
