    I think they look fine, you may want to try and get more super free veg in if poss and I noticed that you only had 1 HEXA on your red day but apart from that they look good to me. Are your food diary's on line for the wk you gained? Maybe you can post them so we can take a look for you.

    I think your menus look fine. The only thing, and Im really clutching at straws here, is the 6 slices of bread in one day. Its not against the SW guidelines at all, so youve done nothing wrong, however bread can effect people differently.

    Other than that, just take it as one of lifes little fluctuations. Only 0.5 lbs im sure itll be off and more next week :)

    thanks guys for taking the time to have a look.Victoria, last weeks not on but are basically the same as these 2. i dont normally have this much bread i tend to have hi fi or cereal for my hexb choices and i didnt have that much last week. Nevermind ill just keep on plodding along ,im going on holiday next sunday to majorca so i want to try and get into the 12 stones before i go so will try your suggestions of superfree foods/veg.
    Going try and stay positive and hope it works for me,

    Another thing I get told off a lot for on here (lol) is eating too many of the same HEXB's. I tend to have 4x alpen bars for my 2 choices then have 2 more for syns, I know, my bad. Are you varying you're meals from days to day or just having pretty much the same per red and green? You could look through the SW website or the recipe section on here to try and shake it up a bit. Some of my fave's on red/green are:

    Red
    Coq Au Vin
    Turkey Burgers
    SW Shepherds Pie
    Salmon & Roast Vegetables
    Beef Stew
    Thai Fish Stew

    Green
    Quorn & Lentil Curry
    Ratatouille Pasta Melt
    SW Spaghetti Carbonara
    Quorn Chilli
    SW Mousakka
    SW Chips with Beans Egg Sausage
    SW Lasagne

    All of these recipes are either in mini mini's or the SW website although I got the thai fish recipe from one of the new books. IK can pop it into the recipe section if you can't find it.

    Good Luck!

    I'm absolutely ADDICTED to the summer fruits bars, I tend to dip them into a toffee mullerlight, sounds weird, try it, you'll love it! I do red/green too simply because I've always lost with this plan and I feel I've got control, I'm not really that keen on trying EE, I suppose it's down to the individual. Slimming world will work for you, I really don't believe that it's "not for everyone", at the end of the day we're all made up of the same stuff. People do sometimes struggle when changing from low calorie diets etc but please persevere, did you have losses on your three previous weeks to the gain this last week? I normally have a green on Saturday mainly because I eat more when I'm home and for some reason I can't keep my nose out of the cupboards/fridge, and it's easy to whip something filling up. I weigh on Mondays so I tend to do a red sunday and monday (for some reason I think I'll be lighter lol the things we do!).

    Good luck and make sure you update us when you WI xx
