    I know this might sound a silly suggestion, but try cutting back on some of the sweet foods you eat each day by not making cakes albeit scan bran ones. having very high glycaemic foods can affect the way the body's metabolism functions. Also on a practical note when cutting slices of food it is oh so easy to guestimate the syn values. sometimes it may be necessary to once in a while measure out your uncooked pasta (100gms max) rice (60gms) potatoes (200gms) etc just to make sure you are not eating portions suited to a much bigger person. I have found it useful inputting my food into myfitnesspal.com as it gives you a good breakdown of the nutritional content of your food. I was undereating on protein but eating way too many calories by the amount of free food I was eating. It would be interesting to see if are consuming enough good quality fibre which often has a slow GI. Hope this helps rather than confuses xx

    Thanks :)

    Cake is my only pleasure but I will try cut it to one peice a day lol I have never been a crisps or takeaway person in fact when not on a diet I never have crisps and rarely takeaway. I make the cakes so that I dont completely deprive myself I think without them I would end up cheating and eating the real cakes that I make for the kids. Also if I didnt use my syns on sweet stuff I dont think I would use them at all maybe 1 or 2 a day and are we not told to make sure we utilise them :confused:
    I almost always weigh my Hex but not the free food but then thats why I joined slimming world because with ww every thing is weighed and restrictive and with so many restrictions I fail and cheat, maybe I should do more red days :confused: that way the carbs are controlled

    Have you had a look at the other diaries on here Hun? I do a lot more Red Days and there may be some things on the other diaries that you like to add a bit of variety?
    If you are doing this much exercise, are you drinking enough water? You may find that as you are building muscle, your body will hold on to water to...it does even out, but to go from very little/ no exercise to as much as you have done, this may be a reason for your little gains...dont forget, you are loosing inches!

    Just find that I get really hungry on a red day I enjoy the meals dont get me wrong and I have done red days in the past just so I can have a certain meal its just during the day I find myself opening up the cupboards and fridge thinking I am starving when I dont think I actally am iykwim I am probably just craving carbs and snacking on a bit of meat just doesnt seem to stop it. I end up having a Banana which is ok but I can go a bit mad on Bananas so have tried to cut them down to 1 or 2 a day have been known to have 4 or 5 :eek: in the past. I find on days that I have a good lunch containing meat carbs and salad I dont get so hungry so maybe EE is the way I need to go

    Possibly the exercise I do try and drink water throughout the day at least 4 glasses sometimes 6 depends if I remember so its possibly the exercise I am going to stop focusing on the weight and focus on getting to a size 10-12 doesnt matter what I weigh... I mean if I was 15 stone and a size 10 I wouldnt care lol (not that it would ever happen) so my target was 10 stone but I want to be wearing a size 10-12 and if I get there without getting to 10 stone I will be happy :)
