What sort of yoghurt are you having Huney? Did you make the lentil and bean pie yourself? Are you scraping the tablespoon of squirty cream level? And do be careful with bananas and grapes. In principle it does look ok , but it's easy to take in more syns than you need. Salad veg don't help you lose weight apparently, but you're having plenty of other veg.

Hi there thanks for checking my food out, the yogurts are mullerlights, weightwatchers or shape (all free) and the pie was home made and completley syn free......thank you so much fro looking:eek:

Ive had a quick look and cant really see anything either??:confused: Give it time, some people on SW dont have massive weight losses... I have a friend who only ever lost a pound a week no matter what she did. Good luck, keep going

Love Elle
