Hi everyone, I used to do SWin 2008/2009 and lost 3 stone pretty quickly and really got in to the SW way. During 2010 i put on about half of the weight lost but based my meals usually around SW. I have been back on SW since beg of Jan and am just not really loosing :-( I dont think im doing anything differently to last time when my losses were usually 3 or 4lbs a week this time its more like half a lbs or ss. I am due to have IVF on the NHS and they wont do it until my BMI is 30 or less so I feel I have added pressure to get some weight off asap. Im going to post my food diarys so any help well be really appreciated. :D I do red and green days.

Hi Nelly, That's a real pressure on you sweetie, and not condusive to losing weight.
Like a lot of things any stress or angst can make the body hold onto everything as a crisis mechanism. Hope you will keep posting and I know there will be lots of people who will offer you help, support and advice.
I will be eager to see how you are progressing and hope your dreams of being a parent will come true.

Take care and all the very best to you...:)
Thank you very much for your reply, its nice to be honest about my situation as in my every day life there arnt many people who know about the fertility struggles. Thanks again. x

Just a thought Nelly, but have you considered asking the question about what to do about the hunger pangs on the "SW Off Topic" section?
Better to see if you can get some advice rather than leave it and then perhaps cave in!!..:D

Doesn't sound like your doing anything wrong. Maybe try a little more variety? Or check portion size. You can't gain with free food, but it may slow your losses down. Also give super free foods a go.

I have all the advise, but can't do it myself. I was in the same boat inasmuch you so moved on to rosemary conley in jan. Some times a change is needed.

Hope you get a good loss and happy birthday.
Thanks Rebecca. I was thinking that I may need to change diets which makes me really sad as I love SW. Will give it another month or so of really sticking to it and writing everything down.
Happy Birthday for yesterday Nelly!!!..:553: ...Sorry it's a bit late.

Think it would be wise to stick with it especially as you say you are keeping a note of your intake, bound to start working soon. Don't give up, takes a little while sometimes.. patience is a virtue...:D

All the best to you...:)

Keep up the good work, you can do it. I always fine green days were better when it was totm.
Hi Nellylou,
So how was the quiche? Hope you liked it! We live on it at our house, but instead of doing it as one big quiche my sw c suggested using muffin moulds. I just whisk 6 eggs up, mix in a tub of ff cottage cheese, add salt and pepper, and whatever else takes my fancy (cooked bacon, onions, mushrooms, peppers, ham, tin of mixed veg...), and pour it into the moulds and cook for about 20mins or so. They are great when u get the munchies, and they freeze well too.
I used to do red and green days on the previous times I did SW and always did very well. However this time I am trying mainly ee and I'm totally amazed at how flexible it is! I'm never hungry, and I do love my food! :17729: Well done on posting your food diaries and on being so honest too! Hope you start getting the losses you deserve REALLY soon :cross: Keep in touch x
Got up all positive today, the sun is shining, boyfriend is working today so day to myself (Yay!) did 30 mins of aerobics and had my breakfast.

(B) x2 fried eggs on toast (frylight) HEB
Tom sauce - 2 yns

Am going to meet a friend for lunch and will prob go to Weatherspoons as their warm chicken and bacon salad is yummy, I just ask for honey and mustard dressing on the side instead of smeared all over it. Then meeting my bf and we are going to my sisters, think they will get a takeaway but I will take my sw quiche and some fruit and a muller (thats the plan anyway) will update later
Enjoy the sun!!! :D

p.s Skinnydawn, thank you for your message and the quiche was lovely!!! even the bf liked it and he claims to hate cottage cheese, I didnt actaully tell him what was in it.. lol
Afternoon Nellylou,

Wow...great start to the day! 30 mins of aerobics...well done! :character00116: :whacky068: My ex husband gave me an exercise bike a few weeks ago and I try to go on it regularly. I think it's a really good idea to do what you did today and get the exercising done in the morning then you're less likely to ruin all that hard work by over eating later in the day!
Good news about the quiche. Love the bit about the bf...bit like kids really bless em...don't tell em what they're eating and they're none the wiser lol!!! :eating:
Have a great day xx
Sunday started off really good but then I went mad for chocolate last night, ate half a big bag of peanut m&ms and half a big bag of giant buttons plus had a large slab of lemon cheesecake round my nans while watching DOI...:eek::eek:
Not going to beat myself up about it too much as it was my birthday week and nearly totm and today has started well.
This week I am going to make sure I eat 3 different vegtables a day and 2 pieces of fruit. I am also going to drink my 8 pints of water a day and drink at least 2 cups of green tea and see if that makes a difference to my weight loss next week. Will keep you posted.
