what day are you doing? if you're doing red or green then you haven't had enough healthy extras or syns! yuo haven't had any A options like milk, cheese etc and not enough syns! If your're doing EE then you still need 1 HEA option and more syns! the rest seems ok.

Are you doing extra easy? From your menu plan I think you must be as rice can't be used on a red day as a HEX B choice.
If on EE, you don't need to weigh rice at all.
On first glance it doesn't look nearly enough food to me!! Need some more syns in there for a start!
saying that, coming off a tfr diet you would not expect to lose in the first week and if anything, you may see a gain.
Stick with it, eat lots and lots of free foods and remember you have 15 syns a day!

I'd suggest you eat a bit more! You could have your eggs and toast for breakfast rather than lunch, have the muller & kiwi as a snack, then have another meal as your lunch. I'll often have jacket potato, tuna & sweetcorn or pasta salad, couscous, homemade soup, leftovers from night before, whatever takes your fancy!

Definitely room for a bit more food there, lots of fruit & veg too :)

I agree with the others. Its hard to tell from your menu what day you are on and there isnt nearly enough food there Hun!!! Even I can eat more than that and I have a gastric band! Lol

Just reading your newest post too....lunch is more like a breakfast...on a red day, you can have things like chicken (I would take some chicken drumsticks to work and have a side salad).
If you have the chance, have a look at the Food diary section on here..it will give you some ideas. Just get out of the CD way of thinking (this is why you arent loosing weight on SW plan - you arent eating enough!) strange to say that about a diet, but thats how SW works!

Ok sounds like I need to eat more but coming from 3 shakes a day my stomach finds it hard to squeeze in! Maybe I need to make some syn free soup to have during the day. Hard to get your head round eat more and lose weight but I am willing to give that a go this week.

I'd change your day to EE and then you can have unlimited pasta hun, 100g cooked pasta is nothing and seems a waste of a B choice!! Wouldn't touch the sides of my stomach!!

It's a difficult concept that you need to eat to lose weight! But the simple truth is that at the beginning the more you eat the more you lose! Now obviously if you've been on shakes you may well have a gain the first week as there will be something retained in your system but as you adjust you'll relax and see just how much you CAN eat!
And yes you could do with a much larger lunch!
Go onto the SW website, they have downloadable plans, or go onto the diary section at the top of the SW home page and that will give you an idea about how much you should be eating. The magazine is good too.
