One piece of advice I would give Hun, is not to "guess-timate" your syns. If you dont know the value, either come on here, dont eat it, or go on the SW website.
If you stick to plan 100% the weight will come off quicker. Have a look at some of the other food diaries on here to give you some help and tips too (they really are invaluable).

Good luck for the week.

Hi, just looking over your diary.
I think you need to consider the amount of syns you are having. A lot of the entries you have gone over your 10 syns that is recommended with EE, although you are able to go upto 15, they do say to try and get to around 10. I personnally try to cut down on the syns the next day if I have more than 10 on the day before.

Another thing that I noticed it may help you if you incorporated more superspeed foods into your diet, if you look through your book it will provide you with a list of SS,

As you are eating a lot of plums try swapping them for Yellow plums as they are SS and normal ones aren't. Also try swapping your grapes for blackcurrents, blackberries, raspberries, redcurrents or strawberries which are all SS as grapes are not even a Sfood, and apples are only Sfoods.

Just little pointers that may help to boost your weightloss x x
Thanks stacey, any pointers are always greatfully received.

I ahave been away on holiday for a week and have been off plan, lots of picnics, meals out. enjoyed it but now i am home i am not looking forward to weight in tomorrow morning.

On the plus side i am going to get back on track tomorrow.
