Good morning gorgeous people!!
I started yesterday and joining class for the first time tonight so just getting my head around slimming world.

Hi skinny-mummy and welcome to Slimming World!

With regard to free, speed and super-speed, I don't think 'super-speed' is a thing any more. In the old red/green days some foods were classed as 'super-speed' (SS) as they were supposed to boost your weightloss more than the free and speed (S) foods. However, they seem to have done away with them now as they got too confusing so it's just free or speed foods now :)

From your food diary above, the speed foods you have are the strawberries, onions, peppers, mushrooms, lettuce, cucumber, spring onion, satsumas, broccoli and cauliflower. Unfortunately grapes are free but aren't speed foods due to the high natural sugar content. The speed foods are the ones with an S next to them in your book so when you get your book tonight it'll make it a lot clearer.

It looks like you've managed to get a good amount of speed foods in with each of your meals, including breakfast, which is excellent! You've also got all your healthy extras in there and have used your syns well, keep up the good work! :D I hope you enjoy your class tonight!

Great start, as above regarding the grapes, and no more SS. My consultant would probably remind me that SW chips as a snack isn't really something I should do frequently (ok if nothing else will hit the spot once in a while as a treat - you know those moments). She would tell me that to speed my losses to snack on speed foods (easy grabs, like a piece of fruit). You've got off to a great start, good luck with your losses x
