    Are you eating enough? More importantly, are you having your Syns? If you aren't eating enough and not having your HE's and Syns it can go the opposite way

    Did you lose weight more successfully to start with - has it suddenly dropped off? It may well be worth filling in a food diary for a couple of weeks and getting your consultant to check it, as it's all too easy to be making a silly mistake without realising it!

    Don't get too disheartened - an average of half a pound a week will still add up to 2 stone over the course of a year, which is well worth waiting for!

    iam on the slimming world diet i have lost 4st8lbs in just over a year i had the same trouble as you when i first started i wasnt eating enough and only using 1 a and 1 b i started off by having between 10-15 syns a day but then cut it right back to 5-8. i have been trying the extra easy plan for a couple of weeks and have put some weight back on so iam going back to red days which suited me i have never lost anymore than 4lbs in 1 week. we had a lady join our group last week who did the extra easy plan and she lost 10lbs in her first week!!!

    Yes you should aim for no less than 5 per day so 10 would be absolutely fine. Don't compete with your husband, men lose weight faster than women and they don't have the hormone rollercoaster that we do.

    In fact, don't compare yourself to ANYONE as we are all different and some people lose weight faster than others

    I've lost 8.5 lbs in 3 weeks and stuck to it really well, my partner has been having the same evening meals as me, but whatever food he wants for lunch, and has lost a stone.

    Men hey???

    baked beans are your friends on green, i lost a stone in my first 3 weeks but the last 2 weeks have been 1 - 1.5 lb losses i think im not eating regulary enough to keep my motabolism going, im trying more but fell off the wagon this weekend so im sticking to it to the letter damage control!!! i think it depends how your diet was before you start SW as to how big your first few weeks are, my diet was attrocious!! u will get there trust me.. remember a lb a week for a year is over 50lbs or 3 1/2 stone!!

    n2s is right, if your diet was really bad before then the first few weeks you will lose loads but if it wasn't quite so bad then the losses will be smaller. But losses are still losses so stick with it

    hi, just thought I would comment. I am classing myself as a 'slow' loser because my weight hasn't just shed as easily as other people who I go to group with that don't need to lose as much as me. It's disheartening but you should be happy that it's going. Oh and why not try extra easy, it might work for you, it seems to work better for me that red and green.

    Do you have 3 meals a day? Definitely make sure you're eating enough, and snack on fruit and yogurt if you're hungry in between, I'm sure it keeps your metabolism up. I tend to save a few syns every day for a treat and wine at the weekends. I have the windy problem, but I don't care, I love green days! My other half's used to it now lol.

    The main thing with this is to remember that it is a lifestyle. You still have to live your life and if that means the odd day off then so be it. Funerals, weddings, parties will all crop up and you have to take them in your stride and say 'It was only one day/evening, tomorrow is a new day'. You will do great and if you don't lose this week then it's all to play for next week!
