    what are you finding hard?
    is there anything specific?? main meals, snacks, variety???

    there are a few meal threads (you might have to go along the pages a bit) there is one ive done that have loads of different meals that ive (well my hubby did most of them) have cooked and there are a few from others...

    i have slim fast shakes for breakfast and lunch, so its just my main meal and snacks that i have to worry about (i find this verrrrryyyy hepful but sometimes do miss food.)

    hope this has helped.. and hope to help you more.

    are the oats so simple porridge with in the 5% rule??? (just thought i saw a thread about it the other day... and didnt know as i dont eat them...)
    do you have spread on your toast (with beans?) as that can bump up the fat.. but if you are not having any of the effects then you are doing fine on the fat...

    but maybe your not eating enough... i know that sounds silly, but your body goes into starvation mode...

    try going onto a site like my fitness pal, to work out how many calories you need to be having (or there abouts) per day. and try and stick to it.

    water.. are you drinking enough??? i know when i drink like a fish (do they even drink???) i do heaps better!!...

    exercise? are you getting any?

    hope im helping.

    im enjoying slim fast (mainly the chocolate ones ) as they give me a quick choccie fix...

    but you have to be commited to it...
    and have your snacks etc.....
    have a read up of the website (www.slimfast.co.uk) i think.... or have a look at some of the threads on the slim fast section on here.

    you are doing well though.... i would love to say ive lost 12lbs in the last 2 months.... this is not the case though....
    so dont feel too disheartend...
