    Thanks

    Hi

    Thanks for your post. I was doing calorie controlled for a while and limiting to 1700 a day but found I was hungry and got fed up of counting hence SW ee.

    i am not going to give up I am on week three and I feel better so I hope for a loss on Saturday to keep me motivated as I don't want to go three weeks with not much loss as I only have 154 days to my wedding

    fingers crossed the ee way works

    Im sure it will work your body might just need longer to adjust from the calorie counting.I normally follow sw green or ee for 5 days a week then calorie count for 2 days just because I feel more in control that way & that im sure im def not overeating on those 2 days.Its not everyones cup of tea but its working for me at the moment.Goodluck on your journey x

    Hi I'm new to this and sw! I'm on my 3rd week now. I started of at 10.2 and now an 9.12. I'm reading about people losing so much weight in the first few weeks! Why isn't that happening for me? Am I doing something wrong? Is there anything else I could do?? Here's my diary for today:
    Breakfast: 2 weetabix with 250ml semi skimmed milk and then a banana
    Lunch: 1 wholemeal bread, 2 eggs, beans with salad
    Dinner: Bolognese made with quorn mince and salad
    Snack: grapes
    Syns, baked hoops and crosses = 4 syns
    2X Fun size bag of maltesers = 5.5 syns

    Thank you xxx

    Thank you for the reply tamkat. I sometimes worry I'm not having enough salad and fruit! My 3rd a plate! Or could I not be loosing as much weight as my portion sizes are too big!! Xxx

    You've lost loads for your size! You won't have the big losses some people have because you're already small.

    Well my third weigh in today and I sts again. I have been good and ate loads of super free foods and I still can't lose any weight. What am I doing wrong?

    should I try green instead?

    all advice welcome

    Why don't you write your next couple of days on here? Someone might spot something for you or have some suggestions? :)

    I would def try green or red week,they worked for lots of people before ee came along.I have nothing against ee but maybe it just doesn't work for everyone? Be good to see some of the food you are eating so someone can help its really not fair for you to have stayed the same again so early on the plan xx

    Food diary helped me. I was super good and did EE religiously, and had two weeks of no weight loss. I had mostly superfree foods and 5 syns per day or less. It turned out I wasn`t eating enough calories to actually lose anything. It was strange to actually increase my calories and use more syns and sure enough, got three pounds off that week.

    Thanks. How are you getting on now with ee and weight loss since you increased food and syns?

    springburnlass Well-Known Member

    I lost 2kg in the next 2 weeks after that, but this week it was only 0.5kg off. I`m now going to use the diary to eat the same foods for another week to try lose 1kg a week.Trial and error :sigh:

    Well done on your loss

    i am a bit nervous about weigh in tomorrow. I have eaten well so far today and conscious of following the ee plan to the letter

    hope you have a good week. Let me know how you get on

    I will, and hope you get on well too. By eating my main meal at lunch time, it helps "burn it off" rather than eating later at night (dinner was around 7pm)
