Not sure, I've not hit that problem yet! But what about excersise, could you step that up a bit? Or eat more super free, if losses are slowing could you fill 1/3 of your plate with super free food? Are you weighing/measuring your healthy extras out and not just guessing?
Hopefully someone can be of more help than me x
I eat quite big portions too so sorry I'm of no help. Hope someone can help you x
Have you been drinking plenty of water? Or had any problems going to the toilet (not being nosy but just know if I haven't been in a while I get bunged up) x

Could you write out an honest diary of what you have eaten today hon? I think you've probably answered your own question re portion size, too much of anything will cause weight gain x
How about swapping your meals about?
Have something different for breakfast, maybe have a couple of red & green days if you normally stick to EE
Our bodies get a bit stuck sometimes and need a shake.
It hasn't happened to me....however, a girl at my class was playing around with the same 1/2lb for 5 weeks, whilst sticking to plan - she had a swap about and lost 3.5lb today....
Give it a go, you have nothing to lose but lbs

I would say all of the above. If you are still stuck why not try a week of success express. Some members in our group have had great results with it, then went back to ee or the other plans and it re started their metabolism. Worth a try I suppose. Good luck in whatever you decide to do. I am sure with perseverence you will succeed.
I would just like to say, persevere with it. One of my friends from my group had this problem and for about 12 weeks she never lost. I understand it must be so disappointing and disheartening, but things will start moving again soon. Definitely try some of the advice given to you up there ^^^, and perhaps start and keep a daily food diary on here? There may be the tiniest thing that you haven't noticed that could be hindering your weight loss. There are some very knowledgable peeps (SW guru's as I like to call them) on here who are bound to spot anything should it be getting in the way.

Same thing happened to me, but I am doing green days only. I discovered what the issue might be due to the fact of having a good diary and it might be because I was not eating enough protein for my body to kick start it. I've introduced more protein (chicken) into the plan as I'm allowed a certain amount as a hexb. So far I think it's working, but can't tell as it's *week and WI is Tuesday.
It might be something as easy as changing the plan rather than doing EE, try red for a week, then green for a week and that should show you where your body likes it best. Every plan is not good for everyone and each body has a preference. Don't give up, I only have lost 1lbs in 6 weeks as well, but I think I figured it out so hopefully will be smooth sailing from here.
It's annoying as I keep thinking I could have just eaten what I wanted to for the previous 5 weeks if I was only going to lose that pound. On the other hand it has gotten me into the swing of things.
Only advice is to try a different plan, but you're not alone!
Can't agree more with the shake things up advice. Lots of people from my group have been stuck then change things such as mixing healthy extras up, trying completely different things like having more fish instead of chicken for example, and had massive loss the following week!
