    Hi Julie, Congrats on starting with SW, I do it too and im really enjoying it so far.

    Im no expert..but if I had to determine what might be slowing your weight loss I would have to say the sugar. 6 lots of sugar is definatley more than 3 syns. Have u tried Splenda? Its a sugar alternative, taste more or less the same and yet is FREE on SW!
    You should definatley try that in your hot drinks, because food wise you seem to be doing fantasticly.

    Anyway just a suggestion. Have a great week :)

    Thanks for you reply, yeh i need to cut sugar down in hot drinks, My hubby has sweetner as he is diabetic but i really dont like them, and you are right sugar is 1 per teaspoon, I suppose i will have to give sweetner another go. Although i do not really have many other syns. I haven't touched choc or crisps or anything that i normally do for over 2 weeks, I really hope this weeks wi is much better I couldnt bare to loose only 1/2 pound again,.... I have just got a recipe for mushy pee curry!!! syn free, and diet coke chicken..... i will try anything to keep hunger at bay... also a nice looking mouse made out of sugar free jelly crystals and quark and creme freche!!! happy days xxxxx;)

    Hehe that sounds lovley!! Let me kno how it goes :)

    I dont much like sweetner either, but Splenda is the best one I can find - tastes the most like sugar, they call it a "sugar alternative" as opposed to a sweetener. i have it on my weetabix its that similar!

    Stick at it! :) Whens your weigh in? x

    Can I ask, what were you doing before you started SW?
    (ie, eating normally, very low cal, binging, etc?)
    And are you doing more excersize than usual?

    Dont give up yet! U dont know where you stand until you step on the official scales....!

    try not to worry too much about the 1.5lbs. it doesnt necessarily mean you have put on because our bodies fluctuate so much from hour to hour never mind day to day.good luck with your weight loss and your weigh in on thursday.

    Don't worry or panic, as others have rightly said, our body weight fluctuates daily.

    It is so very tempting to jump on the scales all the time, especially in the early days :eek: I once asked hubby to hide them from me until my weekly weigh in :rolleyes: I now don't go near them until my weigh in, suprising how easy it becomes...eventually ;)

    Diffent scales give different readings, ALWAYS use the same set, on the same day (at least weekly) at the same time of day for the most accurate result. Scale hopping on various scales and 'sneaky peeks' are soul destroying, believe me, I know!!! :)

    Another word of advice from an 'old owl' sometimes the scales don't always reflect our hard work, but your body will have lost inches somewhere, toning up....measure yourself monthly, you'll see what I mean!

    good luck, please don't beat yourself up over it..i am sure you'll be pleasantly surprised come the official weigh in day :)

    Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, I must say regarding the comment about feeling slimmer, I can feel a little difference may be my imagination but i dont care after all its all about Me, as thats who i am doing this for :D... You wouldnt have any tips on how to get the slimming world home made chips a bit crispy ?? I par boil them for 5 mins then spray light them and then put them in the oven, but they take forever to brown and are quite soggy, am i doing something terribly wrong. xxxx

    You are welcome Julie :) sorry I am not following SW, but I have picked up a mountain of tips and advice over the years lol and using the spray light and putting them in the oven after boiling them sounds correct to me. I had a friend who used that very method, but I am sure someone more knowledgeable will tell you if there is something else you can do to make them crispy?

    I am not even sure if my friends chips were crispy or not? lol..I just remember her telling me she could 'still' eat chips if she cooked them that way! :D

    (not the same if they are soggy are they :eek:? )

    p.s you will be feeling slimmer, its not your imagination. In my first week, I could hardly believe how slim my fingers became, less puffy almost immediately!!!)

    Well done for sticking with it!
    Crispy Slimming world chips....(bear in mind they wont be as good as if you did them in real oil but hey for a free alternative they are pretty darn good!)

    -I par boil for 5-7 mins, then drain and pat the chips dry with kitchen towel (v important).

    - empty and dry the pan, put the chips back in, spray with fry light, cover the pan with its lid, shake vigorusly for a couple of seconds. (this covers them in FL and also roughs up the edges to give them that crispier edge!)
    -pour onto baking tray, cook on gas 7 for 35-40 mins. (this seems like a v long time but the longer u leave them for the crispier and tastier they are!)

    Hope this helps :) Keep it up xxx
