Have decided today that this will be my last attempt with SW . Here's a brief history long story short ... joined 20+ years ago got to target pretty quick bearing in mind not much to loose 2stone plus age was on my side . Over the last 20 years I have been on and off the SW wagon and tried a few others with short term success . I 're joined again in Jan and had a slow weight lost most was 2lbs in one week after being 100% don't how people loose 4+ ! Anyway carried on going to group but decided to do Calorie Counting for one week to see the results and lost 2.5 lbs ! Did the same the following week and think I lost 3lbs I started exercising the same time as the CC swap . Things were going pretty well going to group and doing my own thing then got a bit bored with logging everything plus people were loosing well on SW decided to try SW again lasted 3days started overeating mainly pasta got bloated looked 6 months gone ! So did CC for remainder of the week and STS . So have now decided from Thursday ( last weigh in day ) I will try SW again but NOT eat for the sake of it especially pasta /carbs ! I have given myself 1 month June to follow SW 100% and see my results . If I loose 1.5 lbs + per week then I'm sticking with it as I think that should be possible as I exercise 3x per week lots of cardio running and cycling . If I don't loose much sts or gain when I know I have been good then I think it'll be time for me to throw in the towel and quit and go back to CC on my own and save the money I still don't know after all these years if SW works for everyone but I really hope it will work for me this time as it's a healthy lifestyle and easy to follow . Ill update next Thusday let you know how much I've lost !
