    hey welcome and good luck for weigh in.

    I just got my 1.5 stone sticker (22lb's altogether) - 11 weeks into SW plan - I think it;s a fab way of eating - I have never done so well on SW - I don';t know what it is this time that's helping me lose weight a little more quickly. BUT whether it comes off slowly or quickly - the end result will be the same - the excitment of getting to target. I just hope that this time I can stay at target and stay slim for the rest of my life.

    Good luck again.

    Carol, thats not an unreasonable weight loss on this plan - about 2lb a week which is good and healthy. No reason why anyone following it correctly shouldnt get the same sort of results 1-2lb a week is considered optimum for weight loss and not regaining afterwards.

    I agree that 1.5 stones in 11 weeks isn't breaking any records - but I am real chuffed with the results this time. I understand how you felt - because the few times I've done SW before I only managed about 1lb a week and some weeks just a STS or small gains along the way.

    This time I have ENSURED that I've had at least 5 syns a day and mostly 10 syns a day - but I have stuck to plan properly - written everything down and counted and weighed what I had to count and weigh.

    AND ................... although EE produced good weigh loss in the first couple of weeks - I was VERY constipated so went onto red (which I prefer) because I could have my 2 HEB's per day.

    Voila ! 1.5 stones in 11 weeks - and feeling great.

    GOOD LUCK to you. Hope it all works out fine - but the end result - no matter how long it takes, is to be at target - remember to keep slogging away and that dripping tap will EVENTUALLY fill that bucket.

    Gilly x

    Hi Carol!
    My advice is to make sure you fill out a food diary for your consultant for the first few weeks. It's not a quick fix diet bit I would have thought you would have lost more than 6Ibs over 14 weeks...
    Good luck
    :)
