    Hello, my name is Gabrielle and i joined SW 3 weeks ago but to be honest the first week i couldnt get my head around the programme at all and was using WW for the week and i lost 3.5 lbs. Anyway.....i didnt go back to class since but my lovely leader Fiona has phoned me and text me and emailed me with encouragement to come back so i have decided i am going back on Friday morning where she is going to explain it to me.

    I have been trying to do the EE plan since Monday and i think i am doing ok even though i dont understand the red days yet but hopefully on Friday i will understand the programme more. I have heard great things about SW and i am hoping it will work for me as i have a lot to lose. I was 17.9.5 joining and am now 17.6.5. I am going to post what i had to eat since monday, any feedback would be welcome. xxxx

    Monday EE

    28g porridge 1 HE B
    Milk 1 HE A

    Lunch

    Hi there

    I was an old WW too -before I decided to give SW a whirl -and I LOVE it...

    Can I just say that you don't seem to be having your 1/3 of super free foods that you need to have when doing EE,,, would hate for it to hold you back,,,
    Good luck with it -Im sure you will be fine once you get back to class...

    Thank you Valerie11, I am trying to navigate my way around the site, im sure i will get used to it. I cannot believe the amount of food allowed on SW, i had this thing in my head that i had to go to bed feeling a little hungry for me to lose weight, so far i have been full going to bed! time will tell. :)
