    Unhappy Am I eating too much?

    Hey guys,
    I know that SW does not promote portion control, however, I have been filling up on free and superfree foods for over a week now and still the scales will not seem to budge :/

    This is my food diary from today:
    Breakfast: 2 Weetabix (HexB) w/ semi-skimmed milk (HexA), Banana and Vanilla Fat Free Yoghurt
    Snack: Apple
    Lunch: Pasta w/ Tomato and Basil Sauce (Quite a small portion as this was a canteen lunch)
    Snack(s): 2x Bananas, 1 Orange, Muller Light Yoghurt
    Dinner: Gammon (all visible fat removed) with new potatoes, steamed green beans and baby sweetcorn with homemade syn free gravy

    What is going wrong? :S
    Thanks guys!

    All that is great and the worse thing you can do is keep stepping on scales or was this on your actual weigh in day xx if it is then sometimes this happens but you more than likely are losing inches not pounds xxx
    2014 will be my year


    Starting weight (again) 14/7/14: 12st 10lb

    18/7/14 (Friday is now my weigh in lol): 12st 4lb (6lb loss)

    25/7/14: 12st 4lb (STS) Did have a very sociable week so happy with this


    Mini Goals

    • Reach 12st 5lb by end of July Achieved 18/7/14
    • Reach 12st or just under by end of August
    • Lost at least a stone by September
    • Be near target by November

    I am guilty of scale-hopping occasionally; however, this morning was my SW weigh in and I have still maintained
    You may be on to something though, I have been at the gym more often than usual over these last couple of weeks

    Not particularly, I still have this mindset that I need to go on a syn deficit in order to rectify my absolute splurge over Christmas But I have been having 2-3 syns most days :S Would you recommend increasing syns?

    That's brilliant!
    Thanks! I will give it a go :P Hopefully, the results on the tape measure will be a tad more enthusing than those on the scales x

    I know my last leader said eat between 10-15 each day....which I can very easily! He used to say it is part of the plan as we need the syns to help lose weight.

    I'd agree that you should try upping your syns - the only thing here I see that might have syns is the fat-free yoghurt in the morning and probably the canteen pasta sauce (of course if they use a jar then it might be the opposite problem - full of syns!). Otherwise only thing I can see is that it's not clear whether your lunch and dinner were 1/3 superfree (and remember sweetcorn is free, but not superfree). Are you also drinking lots of water? Finally, ahem, I was quite constipated in my first week or so - you could experiment with different kinds of hexB if you have any similar problems - scanbran is brilliant for getting things moving...
    Made it to target after nearly ten months on Slimming World and now working to maintain between 10st7 and 10st10, have a super healthy lifestyle, and be happy!
