    Well, this is my third week on Slimfast - I have come across from Slimming World because our finances are struggling to support all of the weekly food bills!!

    First week I lost 2lb (I was a little disappointed with that, I must admit!); second week I only lost 1lb (REALLY disappointed with that!!). Not sure what might be going wrong, I've been exercising too (which is a little difficult as I have M.E. too which restricts me) so I thought I was sure to get a big loss this week.

    SO!! I have taken in hand anything that might be going wrong and this week:

    1) I am ensuring I have 2ltrs of fluid every day, in addition to the milkshakes.
    2) I have bought in healthy ready meals which have the calories written down for me (I wonder if the home-made meals have been more calories than I have calculated them to be!) - so there is no mistake!
    3) I am spreading my snacks throughout the day, instead of having all of them in an evening.
    4) I am having between 1200-1300 calories every day instead of undershooting some days.

    I am hoping that this will make sure that my weight loss is better (at least 2lb) this week. Because, I was losing more on Slimming World, but I really want this plan to work for me. SF fits in much better with my pocket and my lifestyle!

    FOOD DIARY

    Monday:
    Strawberry Measure-up 211 calories
    Rocky Bar 85 calories
    Vanilla Measure-up 213 calories
    Cheese and Onion Crisps 131 calories
    Lasagne and salad 376 calories
    Mullerice 106 calories
    Rocky Bar 85 calories
    TOTAL = 1207 calories

    So - we'll see how I get on!

    Your food diary looks good to me, hopefully this week will be better for you. Sometimes it just takes your body some time to adjust to the changes you've made. So stick with it, and see what happens in a week or two :)

    Thanks for your positive comments guys - I am sure that the weigh in monday will reflect all my hard work :)

    I have found a brilliant site which calculates your BMR and the amounts of calories you need to consume to lose weight.

    For instance, my BMR is 1450.75 and I do light exercise 3 time per week so the calories needed to keep me at this weight per day are 1994.78 so to lose weight i need to consume much less than that (it gives you information on ho little to consume safely...). It's very good anyway - give it a go:

    BMR Calculator


    FRIDAY

    Chocolate SF - 230 calories
    Viscount biscuit - 73 calories
    Vanilla Measure-up - 213 calories
    Pink Lady Apple - 80 calories
    Chicken Tikka Masala - 424 calories
    Mullerice - 108 calories
    French Fries - 83 calories
    Viscount biscuit - 73 calories

    TOTAL - 1274 calories

    Hi hun!

    Your diary sounds great! I've also recently purchased ready meals.. to make absolutely no mistakes! aah!
    How many calories are you estimating your salad is?
    I have the WW ready meals (from today!)

    Love Rocky bars too, but don't trust myself to buy them incase I eat them all!!

    I also came over from SW as my losses had slowed down..but on SF I only lost 1lb the first week and then 1.5 the second! x

    Hi hun the ready meals should help a lot, don't worry if your weight loss is a bit slow it might just be your body adjusting from the *freedom* of SW to the stricter more controlled SF and it possibly might be holding on a bit but hopefully that shouldn't last too long! Also are you using myfitnesspal? It's brilliant, it helps you calculate your cals and that also has a BMR calculator and more tools a lot of us are using it now and it's really useful xxx
