    Well I lost 2 pounds and that is great, but I can't help but feel disappointed. For some reason I'd hoped for 3 or 4. The only thing I did wrong I think was to eat less than 4-5 syns per day...do u think I should have the full 15?

    I am happy though as it is a loss at least! :)

    Hi Stefanie :wavey:

    I understand exactly where you are coming from as i have only lost 2lbs in my first week! :cry:
    I have read on here that at the beginning you should take full advantage of the 15 syns so that your body doesnt think its being starved :eek:
    I have also read that some people don't lose much until the 2nd or 3rd week as it can take the body a while to get used to the plan - so i am keeping my fingers crossed for both of us!!
    I think my problem was not eating enough fruit/veg or superfree in general so i am making a big effort this week to get my 5-a-day! :)

    Hey Princess! :)

    Thanks for the reply. I did let it get to me for a few hours, but like you say maybe it will just take a couple of weeks. This week so far I have upped my superfree too and also am trying to have at least 8 syns a day...I started well today by having 1 tbsp of light mayo for 2 syns...yum! Also the frozen grape idea is great...I munched my way through loads last night to keep any sugar cravings away.

    My weigh-in is on Friday, when is yours? We can compare and see how we both got on :)

    oooh how i love mayo! I've tried to stay away from it for a few weeks as i cant stand the light version, but i had an idea which was do a half and half mix (light & full-fat) and then syn that on special occasions because i think it should taste almost the same! :rolleyes:

    Congrats on up-ing your syns :D im really shocked that i almost have to find something 'extra' to eat, to top my syns up! Although yesterday i went and got a pack of mini-milks for the freezer, seeming they are only 1.5 each! that means on a good day i can eat 3..or..4 lol ok, maybe not but they are definitely a lot tastier than 1.5 syns seems :)

    I weigh in on a Monday so not much after you! Let me know how you get on, hopefully it will all fall off us this week ;)

    Hey!!! I managed to get 3 off...yippee! I am more pleased with that....for some reason if it's over 2 psychologically you feel better, even though 2 is great! But you know what I mean :)

    And listen I have a great feeling about yours tonight, the first week you are just getting into it, so I bet you have done great....let me know how you get on xxxxx

    Yeah!!!!!!!!! You lost and had a party with vodka!!!!! Well done you, that is fantastic! Just imagine picking up 4/5 pounds of fat and feeling the weight of it....that weight is now banished to the fat room never to come back again!! :D

    Thanks Jayne, it's going great and knowing we have the support here makes all the difference xx
