    Hi Ruthie

    Good luck getting back on track!

    Food looks good to me. Just thinking, you could make this into a Mix 2 Match day and have both of your HEA and HEB choices, as you don't seem to be mixing your red and green free foods at mealtimes and are only having superfree snacks.

    Just a thought...I am all for helping people eat more and still lose :D

    Hi Ruthie

    I've just been reading what you eat in a day, some of the things sound lovely. It's nice to be able to get ideas from other slimmers!
    I've re-started SW after many failed attempts during the last year, I guess the time just wasn't right for losing weight, other things prevailed however, now I am SO focused!

    Good luck anyway
