    I have lost just over a stone so far with slimming world, but the last couple of weeks things seem to be getting a bit stuck. My meals are always syn free (i save them for a cheeky packet of hula hoops) and include superfree. I joined curves and have been excercising about three times a week and I have been drinking alot of water and cut out frizzy drinks. But I havn't lost a pound. Any ideas how to reboot the weight loss? Im getting a bit disheartened

    If the exercise is a new thing it could be that. I don't understand the reasons behind it but it can affect loss. Have you done your measurements?

    When you start exercising your muscles retain fluid to help them recover from the work out (or something like that). So it is quite normal to have a week or so of no loss when you first start exercising. You are doing yourself and your long term weight loss good though, so keep hydrated and keep going and the losses will soon start up again.

    I would agree it is the exercise. Don't be disheartened and don't give up, just give your body time to adjust and catch up, it will start coming off again :D
