All looks fine to me, I eat much more than that and I'm losing weight. The great thing about sw is that you can eat lots! Good luck x

No you're not following the plan right, but before you panic it's not because you're eating too much but that you're not eating everything you should be.

Firstly what bread are you using for your HEB? You are only having one slice - is this because it's from a big loaf? If it's a small 400g loaf then you can have 2 slices. And make sure it's wholemeal although you probably already know this.

On your first day you don't seem to have had any HEAs and no syns - you need to have at least 5 a day. You didn't really eat very much at all this day so I would have included snacks and a lot more fruit and veg.

On your second day, you didn't have any HEBs at all and only half a HEA as you have to have 6 x laughing cow extra lights for a HEA. Again more fruit and veg but well done for getting those syns in.

And for Monday, Try not to have the same for lunch and dinner. You'll only get bored and this is when you're more likely to stray off plan. And get those snacks and syns in there as well!
