    weight will not shift

    For the second time I have reached 15 stone 3.5 pounds and cannot lose any more. I am following the plan and ensuring I have the correct syns. I have had tests and have no physical problem. My partner insists I will only lose weight with exercise and the plan will not work on its own. I have hurt my leg so cannot exercise. I urgently need to lose four stone but nothing is shifting. Can anybody help me?

    That must be very disheartening

    Could you maybe post a food diary? Just so we could have a peek? It's always the best place to start.....

    Its easy to get into a rut after a while, so try mixing things up a bit with different healthy extras, food and meals, or try a different plan completely. You need to keep challenging your body

    How long have you been maintaining? The SAS log might be a helpful tool if you have sts for a while xx

    I am vegetarian so do green days. I eat the same breakfast every day as it is the only thing I like. Allen light bars. I do not know how to post a food diary.

    You have both lost so much weight. Well done. Do you change what you eat all the time?

    Right, I'm going to say this in laymans terms...
    When we gain weight, our fat cells grow. When they reach a certain size, they multiply. Once you have these cells, they never go away....they shrink, ie. when we lose weight, but you can never actually get rid of them.
    Now, these cells almost have memory of their own...how many of us reach a certain weight and get stuck there? I'm sure its happened to loads of us....not only when we are losing weight but I have experienced this when gaining weight too?
    So sometimes you reach a certain weight and it just sticks...going up or down...and then, with perseverance, it starts moving again....downwards if dieting and upwards if not!! lol

    Seriously, put this in a search engine a read (in more technical terms) for yourself about this. Its true!

    Just write down...in a post...what you eat at each meal. Like this:


    Green day
    breakfast
    porridge (HEXB) made with water, stirred through with a free yoghurt and topped with banana and strawberries

    lunch
    home made coconut rice pudding, apple and a banana

    dinner
    home made chickpea burgers (other HEXB in breadcrumbs) in 2 warburtons thins (10 syns)mushrooms, onions, jacket potato topped with 4 dairylea light and baked beans. Some ketchup (.5 syn)

    thats what I had today.

    You will lose weight...of course. Otherwise we would all stay at a certain weight and never get any lower. But it can become a sticking point, I have certainly experienced this and its always a certain point.....about now in fact!! lol

    This is ONE theory and actually is more applicable if the excess weight is gained in adolescence. It's less true the later in life you gain the weight. As adults our bodies cease development and begin the process of deterioration. Cell regeneration is still active but slows hence the onset of things such as dementia being more common in later years and it's more the case that the fat cells you have enlarge rather than duplicate and can therefore be shrunk. If you gained an excessive amount of weight during puberty then this MAY explain your problem.

    I save my sync and use them weekly rather then daily. No fruit I know that is bad.
    ok....

    1- NO superfree
    2- 2 That is a lot of syns and I know you say you use them weekly but that doesn't work for everyone
    3- you have three HEXB there? Do you mean the cheese to be hexA?

    This isn't really following the plan and to me explains the problem. You need to revisit the plan and remind yourself of the basic principles. Eating like that has got you this far and no further. Maybe its time for an overhaul. There is very little in terms of nutritional density here?
