    You should be able to lose 2lbs per week.

    All you can do hunny is try your best. I think as long as your trying come June what ever your weight is you know you have tried your best. It is possible to lose at least 2lbs a week. It depends on how much you have to lose and also how your metabolism works. xx

    Sounds good so far, but you could do with some fruit and veg in there, and other than the cornflakes I can't see any syns?

    The others in here are sick of hearing me say this, but:

    Stay off the scales between weigh-ins!!!

    Honestly, really, genuinely - it won't do you any good. Home scales are notoriously flaky and unreliable - ours gave my husband three different consecutive readings spread out over half a stone.

    Also your weight fluctuates so much over the course of a week that weighing every day or every couple of days just won't give you an accurate reading. If you were to weigh yourself every morning, lunchtime and night for a week and record the results, I guarantee you'd be horrified by the changes you would see!

    The best way to get an accurate picture of your weight loss is to pick a fixed time period (in the case of Slimming World and most of the other slimming clubs it's a week) and only weigh at those times - that way you can easily plot a chart of your progress.

    Good luck. :D

    OK, I was only asking because it wasn't mentioned in what you listed at the top.

    And I'm really serious - stay off the home scales, chuck them away even! The chances of them weighing the same as your consultant's are almost nil.

    Just think - if your scales tell you you've lost half a stone by tomorrow night and then you get on your consultant's scales at weigh in and discover you've actually only lost 4lb or whatever you'll be gutted. It really doesn't do you any good!

    If you make a syn free bolognase, they you can all enjoy it. You could either do a quorn mince one with passata, herbs, garlic and onions for sauce with spaghetti (completely free on a Green Day), or you could make a mince beef one (same sauce), but have it with veg instead (free on Red), or you could make a mince beef one same sauce with the spaghetti as an EE choise!
