    Hi
    I have been doing Slimming World for about a year now and have lost about a stone and a half. Since the new year I have really struggled to lose the weight I put on over xmas so would really really appreciate any help and support I could get. I do the diet on my own as I cannot afford to go to a class so am unsure on a few things (i.e. how many syns I am supposed to have). I was having about 5 syns a day on average but after speaking to a few people I was advised to try and up them, so this is what I have done - I maintained last week and only lost a pound this week so I am really struggling and dont know what I am doing wrong.

    Hense the food diary. I would really appreciate all comments, anyway here goes.

    This is not a normal week for me as I am off work. I feel that I am eating 1/3 of each meal as superfree food, but any suggestions would be appreciated. i would desperately like to know if I am using my syns correctly (like am I having too many, or not enough, I cant seem to stike a balance).

    its my WI day tomorrow and I got on the dreaded scales on sat and today (which I know I shouldnt & I have only lost a measly pound, which i know wont change by tomorrow):cry:

    Thanks
