Lisa's SW Diary


S: 12st8lb C: 11st7lb G: 9st0lb BMI: 30.4 Loss: 1st1lb(8.52%)
I am new to Minimins and SW, I am doing the plan at home at the moment as my friend has given me her books to borrow until I can join a group next Monday so by keeping this diary I hope I can get some feedback as to if I am doing it right or not as I have never done SW before and it is a little confusing at the moment and will probably take me a while to get used to. I have always lost weight before my calorie counting, I have yo-yo'd over the years and have never managed to keep the weight off for good but I am just so sick of counting every calorie to the point of obsession. I have managed to lose 15lb since September last year but it has been a slow process with many slip-ups along the way especially over christmas. I am hoping the SW way of eating will help me to get to my goal weight without feeling deprived and I'm hoping the support on here will help keep me on the straight and narrow!! So here goes:D

Hi there fellow newbie:D I haven't felt hungry once in the last 2 days and I am loving SW so far, I have always thought it would be too hard to get to grips with before so have never tried it until now, my friend has tried it and she lost quite a bit of weight and she couldn't recommend SW enough, I am sick of starving myself to try and lose weight, I love my food and hopefully this will be the plan that helps me stay on track and reach my goal, good luck with your weight loss journey and hope to see you around :D

Hi Lisa, looks like you're already well into the swing of things :)

I would say you need to make every effort to have at least 5 syns per day.

If (or when) you hit a plateau, lowering the syns you have can be a very effective way of combatting it and kickstarting the losses again. But it only works if you are having them in the first place. Hope that makes sense lol.

You don't need to have all 15 by any means, but they do recommend a minimum of 5. I normally aim for around 10 per day, although admitedly I did just pick that figure at random one day and stick to it haha.

Best of luck with everything :)
