Just checking that the superfree items that you have listed were at least 1/3rd of the plate, also this is the trouble with weighing in between actual weigh in. The main thing is that if you are sticking to plan 100% you will lose weight, try not to weigh in between and beat yourself up, less stress equals better losses. Make sure you weigh the same day at the same time once a week, try to wear the same clothes and if you weigh before a meal then try to always stick to that.

As long as you stick to a minimum third sf you should be fine.

I'm so glad I read your post because the same thing has happened to me. I lost 6.5lbs on my first week (fantastic!) just been weighed tonight doing just about the same meals etc and I've put on 1lb. I know it's only 1lb, and I'm a slimming world veteran of 2.5stone lost, but I am new to extra easy.
I'm thinking that my 1/3 superfree is more like 1/4 this week, that's all I can think of.

To be honest it doesn't look like you're eating too much at all. And the 1/3 super free is not a strict rule now, only if you're wanting to reduce stuff which you are to lose weight faster. I think you're doing fine x

Dont mid week weigh! The results will almost definately be different on wednesday. For one you're probably heavier at night than you are in the morning.

Trust the plan and if you've put weight on at official weigh in panic at that point but not before.

Stay away from the scales!!! :)

My weight fluctuates massively during the course of the week; especially morning compared to night!! You always weigh less in the morning as you've not eaten anything. I've known myself to have 3lb difference between morning and night! My advice is to keep going and stay focused but keep off the scales - you may find you have lost on Wed morning and you've got yourself worried unnecessarily.

hopefully this shows you the dangers of weighing mid week. your weight can fluctuate so much day to day depending on so many different things that it might not give you a true picture.

I dont do it if I can help it - although sometimes if I am feeling a bit stressed about sticking to plan then I will get a progress check. Some people do however find it really helpful to stay on track - but the thing to remember is that if it doesnt work for you then dont do it!
