    Hi ya, reading your menu for the week, I notice there doesn't seem to be lot of veg going on, or much fruit really. Maybe increasing that may help. Also are you drinking plenty, it is very important to drink as much as you can. Sometimes our bodies like to rattle us and do this kind of thing but you must hang in there and not weaken. I knew a lady who never budged on the scales for 6 months (granted she only needed about 7lbs to target) but eventually they did and it took her 2 weeks to goal after all that time. The main point is not to let it get the better of you, just pursevere. Keep the spirits up and it will come right in the end hun. xx

    i thought i did, i mean the meatball sauce i made from scratch had toms, carrots, celery, onion in them. and sauce for pasta is almost the same, plus black eyed bean patties, will try and add more, for fruit, i don't buy alot because of cost, but try and have at least a banana or 2 every day. But don't see that making a huge amount of difference. thought it was all about syns, variety and healthy extras, that's what people normally preach about. and mine appear to be fine with the exception of the odd day a week, but we all have days like that i am sure.

    Incidently does anyone know the syn value of a bag of Cheese and onion Discos?

    I'd say as above (more fruit and veg) BUT a banana every other day and have say apples, pears, oranges instead i.e. fruit with a higher water content.

    There are a couple of days at least where you don't seem to have eaten much at all (Saturday and thursday to pick two).

    As for the discos, 28g bag is 7.5 syns so I don't think they'll send you on the road to ruin!

    Keep it up, you'll get there!

    Great advice!

    Now, I'm going to suggest something that may not work (in which case you'll hate me, lol) but I found I lost a little more weight than I had been, when I UPPED my Syns a bit (from 7 to around 10 per day).

    You're being very good, you're very active and I think your body could stand to have a bit more oomph. But then again, it IS a risk.

    I'm new to this, so I may not be 100% but my SW consultant said that when people start doing regular exercise (after not doing it regularly for a long time), it shocks the muscles into retaining more water and protein to do their job more effectively(???) She says she often sees people having a small gain or STS due to this... but the good news is that this doesn't usually last long, and these people will generally go on to have a far better weight loss than those who do little/ no exercise! (as muscle speeds metabolism??)
    I don't know if I have relayed this correctly, but I'm sure that this is the gist of what she said xx Good luck, sounds like you're definitely on the right path xx

    You're right Maria, I started EA sports active nearly 2 weeks ago. lots of squats lunges jumping :eek: and my weightloss last week was 1/2 lb but It didn't bother me cos I know things will even out. My thighs still feel tight and abit tender, but I'm concentrating on measuring myself instead. I know it will come off eventually.

    Now as to syns, when you first start SW (unless you only have 1/2 stone to lose ) you should have AT LEAST 10 syns. I have 15. Cutting back doesn't work.

    Thanks everyone. Just obviously feeling a upset, know it will happen, i just want it now!!!! Oh and OH told me last night we're going on holiday last week in September, he's booked time off work and going to sort it out today. So got something to aim for now. Hopefully somewhere hot where i can show of my HOPEFULLY svelte body, and not somewhere where and extra layer of fat will come in handy!
