You totally need to eat more!!
You should be filling up whilst on slimming world.
The more syns you eat the more you lose. try and eat 10-15syns as when you get closer to target you can reduce it.
Eating more syns will boost your metabolism too.
Pile your plate high - have a look at my food diary - link below xx

You must be starving. You need to eat more & you need to have your syns.

Take a look at the diaries on here & look at their stats you will see then what they eat AND they do lose weight.

Remember this is for life it's not a quick fix, it needs to fit in with your lifestyle.

I did wonder if I wasn't eating enough but this is sort of always normal when I'm being healthy and not eating lots of bread, dips, crisps etc - so a bit scary to eat more, and I'm not really hungry - thanks for the response I'll have a look at the food diaries and get organised!!
