    Anywho long story short-emailled them about 3 days ago to suggest a page-a-day diary, with weight chart etc (like the WW one) and got this back a minute ago:

    "Thank you so much for your fantastic suggestion. It's great to get feedback such as this and really helps with future development.

    I have passed your suggestion on to the rest of the development team and it will be considered at our next meeting.

    Once again thankyou for your suggestion"

    Woohoo! There may be some hope! xx

    Definitely!

    I told them that SW is really lacking the diary and the paper ones don't survive handbags/shopping trips very well at all! Lol. Hopefully they'll start making one,they could make a lot of £ from the idea so I don't see why they wouldnt... only time will tell!x

    When people ask my C for food diaries she won't let them have them unless she feels they need one.
    She said that they are a consultant's tool to help when people think they are sticking to plan and are not losing, it give the C something to check.
    People said they like to write things down and like the layout of the food diaries but she said it's not right to write it down day in day out and you can't do this for all of your dieting life (I still do 2.5 years down the road!) and that's the reason you only get 4 in your pack and they are only given out when you are struggling.
    She says that you shouldn't have to think about what you eat on SW, especially with EE - you only need to count to 15 and that's it!

    Not saying this is right or wrong, just putting a different spin on things and maybe an explanation if they don't produce a diary.

    Hey Jaylou,iunderstand what you are saying. :) in my case, if I don't write it down I don't have a hope! My toddler keeps me busy/tired constantly and if I didn't write it down then i'd probably have 5hex's 20thousand syns and no free food! Lol.xx

    If I don't write down I fall off track, I don't know why but it just keeps me a bit more focused. I'm just quoting the SW corporate blah blah!

    My consultant gives them out to whoever wants one!?

    I can easily not write a food diary but I have my own SW journal for personal use, just so that I know when my meals are getting too samey & I need to vary more.
