That's the great thing with SW...it really doesn't feel like you are on a diet! So far your menus are looking good. Just a reminder to have the 1/3 fruit or veg at every main meal when you are on EE. Good luck and let us know how you do at WI.

I have weigh in this morning and am so nervous , looking back on this diary I have scoffed myself silly so how can I possibly have lost any weight ??? I know as I was on CD before I may not loose much ( or any ) the first few weeks as my body adjusts back to food and sugar and carbs .. but I so want to keep loosing :)

any comments and advise on this diary would be really appreciated :)

Good luck on your WI today! Don't be disappointed if you don't lose though as you said your body hasn't been used to eating proper meals. Your diaries look fine though, so you should see the weight coming off in no time.
I agree, Slimming world WILL work for you, but you do need to remember that it may take a couple of weeks to see the weight coming off again and may even gain to start with as your fluid balance readjusts. The weight WILL start coming off soon though. Good luck for weigh in xx
