    ok I have been doing sw for a while now, I have lost 3 stone 13 pounds with only 9.5 lb to go until am at target, but I cant seem to get there

    I need some help and advice on how I can get it moving again :( am getting so disheartened

    my usually daily meal plan is something like

    breakfast - grapefruit, strawberries and peppermint tea
    snack - 2 x oranges
    lunch - speed soup or tuna salads, 5 x scan bran, 2 x cheese triangles extra light and an apple
    dinner - fish or meat, cabbage, turnip, sprouts and broccoli
    syns is usually used on freddio, crackers or curly wurly I have been trying to keep my syns between 5-10 per day

    I have started to do some exercise cardio kick 3 x per week which lasts an hour

    any one got any ideas how I can get moving again its really getting me down :(

    Your welcome - I actually really need to change my signature mind as I am not in target anymore!!!! I am 12lb's over, so need 9lbs off to get me back into target range, but i will do it over the next few weeks I'm sure!!!

    I find that when i mix things up abit, rather than just red days, throw in some green & then back to red things seem to move for me. Also making sure i drink plenty!! I am bad as i drink diet coke, like at least 2litres a day, but as soon as i don't drink as much, i seem to hold weight???

    I suggest you mix things up a bit - your body gets used to things after a while you need to challenge it again. After all an athlete would not follow the same training routine day in day out - they are always changing things around to keep challenging their bodies

    So different foods, different HEs, different meals! And if in doubt try success express for a week

    erm... how about eating 15 syns a day for a week or 2 ???
    several friends in class have found that the weeks they eat more they tend to lose, the weeks they over excercise, and cut back on syns they either put on or STS

    mix things up a bit.
    be it a fish week or just simply making an effort to eat different heb's and different meals you dont usually eat.

    I agree with the mixing it up philosophy.

    After a week of eating lots of "bad" food, I had gained 2 pounds, but then the next week I lost 6!!!

    Plus it's really nice and motivating to have a change.

    Going by that, you seem to be getting all the way to lunchtime without any protein or carbohydrates.

    Hi Anna, is that a bad thing? I have no idea about when to eat what etc and I often only eat fruit and yogurt until lunchtime, when I'll have carbs. Do you think I should change that? Thanks

    What about two weetabix? That way, you are getting a different HEB too. I'm going to buy some weetabix tomorrow and make an effort to have it for breakfast twice a week :)

    Some good ideas here sue! I reckon this week is your week! Reading through this though, you could just use your hxB at lunch and syn the weetabix a couple of mornings a week. Kills two birds with one stone!

    Not necessarily - anyway, you are getting some protein with your yogurt.

    But the original poster was talking about being stuck, and looking at the food list that was the one thing that was really noticeable that could be changed to see if it made a difference.

    There is a school of thought which says that we should have small amounts of protein at every meal, to keep the metabolic rate chugging away, so it's worth a try. On the other hand, if what you are doing is working, keep doing it!

    Thanks, I've slowed down over the last fortnight so need to make some changes. I might start with having more protein at breakfast.
