New to here and new to Slimming World.

I have to lose weight to get my BMI under 30 so I can stay on the pill as I am over 35

I am PCOS and endometriosis so I know this is going to a hard slog especially as I cant do much exercise. Some days I can barely walk :(

Only joined on Wednesday and I have been told to follow EE but I think Green might suit me as I dont eat meat chicken or shellfish however I dont understand EE let alone Red and Green

hey hun just seen your post asking for some help on your food diary. it all looks ok BUT i would say limit your syns to no more than 10 a day, and try to incorporate more super free foods into the day. looking at your last post your not actually eating that much but your syns are quite high at 13, so your taking in mostly syns and you need to be bulking up on super free foods. if your weight loss is slow anyway cutting syns back to 10 is definitely something i would recommend doing, and you dont have to use the full 10 every day. try and make as many meals as possible out of free and super free and save your syns for 'treats' or sauces and snack on fruit and fat free yogurt in between meals. its filling up on the super free foods and eating less of the syns thats key hunni. maybe try following a weeks plan out of the magazine, if you look at the plans in the mags they use minimum syns but theres loads of food listed. hope that helps hunni xx

Thank you both. I should have said they are all green days hence not eating third superfree.
I have got lazy and been relying on ready made stuff but I do usually eat a lot of salads, and lunch always features cucumber tomatoes with pepper or carrots or raw mushrooms etc.
I probably eat too much fruit so will try to switch to veg.
I have veg quite a bit for evening meals usually roast veg which is mushrooms red onions aubergine and butternut squash or I have sweetcorn or salad for dinner. In my SW quiche there was onions and mushrooms.
Another problem is we have a freezer full of food from before SW so I need to eat that before buying syn free quorn grills and other stuff.

Thank you for the comments I thought I was following the plan properly but perhaps not as you said too much reliance on syn free rather then super free.

you are following it properly and strictly speaking not doing anything wrong but you pick up tips and learn for yourself when doing it a while, ive done it on and off for years an am still learning!! whilst i understand needing to use up freezer stuff due to money, i have been in the same boat myself many a times, if this is perhaps hindering weight loss maybe you could do a trade off with a family member? ask if they will buy you some of the lower synned quorn products etc in exchange for what you have? even though on gren and red you dont 'have' to do 1/3 super free, eating super free foods in place of free and synned food will speed up your weight loss. its upto you hun and what you can cope with doing. i get bags of mixed ready prepared veg and you just pierce the bags and put it in the microwave for 4 and a half minutes, and theres 3 different veg in the ones i buy, so thats 3 different speed foods. remember also that green days are full of carbs, so your weight loss will tend to be slower than say red or extra easy unless you cut down a bit on pasta and potatoes. although they say on sw that you can have unlimited amounts of certain foods, the truth is you cant. if you had 3 jacket potatoes at one meal and a mountain of pasta at the next and did that every day you would probably gain.portion control is vital. also i find bananas and muller lights make me gain if i eat too many of them. have you tried the speed soup this is just full of veg and will really boost weight loss and is free on green and extra easy. good luck and dont give up, just tweak it a bit and youll get there xx

ooh also meant to say if your going up to the limit or near abouts on your syns every day and then have a flexi day or go over your syns on a weekend then this could be the other reason why your weight loss is slow. not saying you are was just a thought cos i tend to be a bit lax with it on a weekend but when im being good i save my syns a bit during the week to try make up for it. xx

Thank you what you say makes so much sense x

In the winter we eat loads and loads of yummy homemade soups but I just dont fancy soup in this weather. I have never ever done SW before and it is all so new.

This is what I have just written on the slow loss thread

As I said I have a freezer full of stuff which we bought before I started SW so need to eat through that first and most of it is synned quorn or tofu unfortunately.
I do eat most vegetables in fact the only one I really dont like is any form of peas. I grow veg in my garden and the potatoes we had for breakfast were only harvested last night same with red onions and carrots.
Before SW we cooked most stuff from scratch and I wouldnt use ready made anything but I have just got so lazy hence the pasta n sauces, mug shots and rice packets. As they just seem too easy.
Plan Plan Plan is how I am going to spend tomorrow.

Tonight for dinner is homemade lentil ragu which is full of puy lentils carrots mushrooms and onions with pasta.

I always weigh my pasta/rice etc so I dont over eat and it is usually 75g which is a recommended portion. I know having PCOS means I need to be careful with carbs.

i have pcos too and its frustrating cos you can eat the same as someone who doesnt and they will lose but you will gain grrr. its all about stabilising blood sugar levels which in turn helps your insulin levels then helps the whole condition, so following sw is a great thing for us. you may find that your weight loss is slower than other peoples but you know the reason why hun, and as long as you are losing even if only half a pound a week at least its coming off. and i have found in the past that the more weight i lose the better my symptoms are and then my weight starts coming off quicker and quicker. so hang on in there. just tweak it a bit, but dont be too strict on yourself or youll just end up blowing it all together cos youll feel so restricted. good luck hun xx

I got diagnosed in 2000 so I have been living with it a long time and I am on a high dose of metformin.
This is the third time since then I have had to lose two stone plus so I know it can be done.
The problem is I have always lost weight with a heavy exercise programme but I now have severe endometriosis which means some days I can barely walk. I have already had one operation but I might need another.
