    Hello all. I am a rejoiner to slimming world after a very good weight loss a few years back. Despite that....the pounds have piled back on and something now has to be done about it. Pleased to say...that there is some weight loss after 2 weeks back...with a nice (but not brill) 3lb off today!!!

    I am slowly getting my head around the ee plan. I was truly a red and green girl!! :)
    I am also becoming quite the little (er loosely titled) gym bunny....loving the cross trainer and swimming and aim for about 3 times a week.

    I have avoided alcohol for A WEEK!!! and now after weigh in, I am enjoying a well earned...well missed glass of wine, and loving it. :p

    Anyway...pleasantries over...HEB advice please...:confused:.
    I am loving the warburton thins...but are they a HEB or do I have to count the 5 1/2 syns?
    I was hoping for more of loss this week, as I have followed the plan so well....or so I thought. I am thinking that I am not doing it quite as right as I thought.
    Help and advice please and I looked forward to sharing my weight loss journey with you all. netti .

    Well done on the 3lbs, any loss is brilliant! :) Warburton's thins aren't listed in the lastest Healthy Extras, so you'll have to syn them. The HEb is about getting enough fibre and they only do a brown thin, not a wholemeal one so they fall short on that score.

    Please don't be disappointed with a 3lb loss - it's actually brilliant! SW, and other organizations such as the NHS, recommend a loss of 1-2lbs a week as being healthy and safe; if you lose quicker than that you're in danger of losing muscle rather than fat. Having said that, the bigger loss at the start of a diet is not to be worried about as a lot of it is water.

    There is nothing to stop you doing Red/Green if you prefer. SW tend to promote the EE plan as it is easier for many people particularly, perhaps, for those with a family.
