Are you eating enough fruit and drinking enough water aswell? :) Maybe post a food diary so others can see what you are eating and advise you based on that?

    Hi sorry to be a pain, but could you repost your list with meals ie

    Breakfast
    Egg, Lean bacon, Mushrooms, Beans, Tomatoes

    Lunch & Dinner

    It will be easier to see if you are getting your 1/3 of superfree on your plate then. Plus day 2 does seem a little 'light' ie not much food, perhaps adding more superfree foods to those sort of days would help

    Without seeing the rest of your week you might also want to make sure that you stick to 15 syns a day rather than a weekly syn allowance... because you had 18 syns day 1 and 4.5 syns day 2.
    It might make a difference...

    Never know about the syns really somedaya I go over and some I am less. Do I need to have all 15 every day or can I say have a weekly sin allowance say 70-80 syns or do I have to stick to 10-15 a day?

    My consultant says that you can save syns so you don't have to have 15 syns a day.

    Also our consultant was saying that even though mugshots are free sometimes people have too many in a week - Are you having one everyday?

    Some people use them as a weekly allowance, some stick to the 5-15 day rule. SW recommend the 5-15 a day, but I think it is a personal choice and if you find it works better for you having different syns totals then continue doing it.

    Its hard to tell, just on the 2 days that you have posted, but here's some suggestions

    a) You dont appear to having enough super free with your meals. It does need to be 1/3 of your plate for it to work

    b) a lunch of salad and 2 eggs is probably not substaintial enough, You could make a SW quiche to bulk that up a bit and maybe add a soup as well? On another day you had jacket potato and beans - you could have added a salad to that and maybe have some grilled tomatoes and mushrooms mixed with the beans to make it more substantial

    c) Mugshots - these are my consultants new 'bug bear' and she is actively trying to stop us eating them as much. Yes, they are free but they are also high in calories for what you get (think its 250 each) and they are also quite high in additives etc, and you are having 1/2 a day. Plus SW recommend on the EE plan that you look for superfree for your snacks in preference to free food

    I would recommend eating more at mealtimes and try to reduce your mughsot intake and see how it goes. Hopefully with more filling meals you wont find the need to snack on the mugshots as much :)

    Are you drinking loads of water? That has worked for me and I had slow losses at first.

    Thanks for all your messages, some really useful tips will def try laying off the mugshots and adding more superfree to my meals.

    I do sip water all day, I carry a bottle about with me at work and stuff. Was trying to stick to the 5-15 syn a day rule but was not working for me on a daily basis so just trying out 70 over a week instead for now

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and also new to SW. Tronnieshopper, I feel disheartened too. I'm desperate for advice as well. I've been on SW for 2 weeks, after 4 weeks with WW with not an ounce of weight loss. Week 1 on SW was a bit soul destroying and emotional as I somehow managed to put on 5 pounds! I stuck to 15 syns max a day and did a mixture of red, green and ee. I wrote down every morsel that passed my lips. I've got my wk2 weigh in on tuesday and am dreading it. I took a sneaky look on my scales and not lost anything, but at least not gained another 5 pounds! I've been going to the gym regularly, but my measurements haven't changed either. I feel healthier on SW so there must be something in it, but for some reason I only feel partly comforted by feeling healthier and being able to run longer and further. Any tips? Has anyone else put on weight when switching from ww to sw? I'm at a loss...apart from on the scales

    Heya Hun - Welcome to this site and SW. Sorry that your feeling disheartened but SW does work *Hugs*

    I have a few questions for you: Are you eating enough fruit? Are you drinking enough water and eating enough? Also when you are doing EE are you having 1/3 superfree? Is it possible for you to post a food diary so we can see what your eating please?
