    Hi..Can anyone help me at all. My CDC has suggested that I might find SS+ easier for a little while and I am inclined to agree with them. Does anyone know what the loss differences are like compared to just SS? Just out of interest really. I want to do whatever it takes to get to the end of my journey, whether that be SS or SS+ plus it would be nice to see if the losses are comparable on both plans. xxx

    Hiya, i was told that the losses are pretty much the same on SS+

    I have just finished my third week on SS and wanted to try SS+ for a change.

    good luck whatever you decide to do

    Hiya, I did SS+ for three weeks:
    1st week -9 3/4 lbs
    2nd week-3 1/4 lbs
    3rd week -1
    Last week- wasnt shifting so Im now on SS.

    Try it,do whatever works for you, I will prob SS for a month then SS+. Im just going with what my body tells me.

    Good luck whatever u decide to do.

    Thanks ladies, you are stars! I have been doing SS now on and off for a while and seem to have periods when I can stick to it and then I fall off :) So perhaps SS+ plus will ease me in to it gently so to speak! I discussed with my CDC about doing SS+ just for a few weeks and then perhaps going back on to SS so I think that I will see how I feel and what my body thinks like you suggest too!
    Thanks again xx

    I am kinda doing ss+. i tend to have something to eat every day, but it is low or has no carbs and I have lost slowly i believe.

    I did ss 2 years ago for a while and what i can remember i lost 20lb in the first three weeks then it went down to 2-3lb a week. I only managed about 7 weeks though.

    It all depends what you are comfortable with, I am happy not losing quickly as I came off the diet the other year as I couldn't physically do it anymore.

    I am having problems sticking to it at the mo, but I just need to get motivated.

    Good luck with what you decide

    Hi, I did ss+ for first 3 weeks (wi 1: -7, wi 2: -2 wi 3: sts ) so last week cdc suggested I do ss. Just come back from wi 4 and lost 3 lbs. So that is 12lbs in 4 weeks (mostly ss+). Intend to stick to s now as I'm a slow loser anyhow.
    Good luck,
    Ceri

    hey daisy,
    i do ss+ and my losses are on par with alot of people on here that just do ss.the difference in losses a month are only about 1-2lb so it really is quite minimal,good luck with whatever you decide,personally i find ss+ a godsend,

    Thanks Ceri and Elaine, a useful insight from you both :) You both have good losses too :)

    Elaine - I think that if SS+ makes it more "doable" for me then that's the way to go for now. Your losses are fab so that's great to know! xxx

    i really find that just being able to have something to eat really keeps me in line,i feel very full after a bit of chicken and a shake/mousse etc.
    if you are struggling at all then i highly recommend you do ss+ to achieve your goal,and as ive stated it wont take you much longer than just ss`ing,

    Thanks for the support Elaine, much appreciated. Can I just ask a quick question, when you are doing SS+, do you have the chicken with the green veg or just the chicken on it's own?

    For example tonight I had, chicken, salad leaves and cucumber followed by my third pack as a frozen tetra, would that be ok ?xxx

    I had my allowance of cottage cheese and the two tablespoons? (strange measure) of cucumber for my lunch today...

    If you have a look in your booklet that your cdc gave you it tells you what you can combine. (basically protein and green veg/salad)

    i just have the chicken on its own hun,as we are not allowed salt so i dont think that i could manage many veggies without it,i just buy the pre packed chicken(slices)as it needs no salt and away i go.
    what you had sounds fine hun,i used to buy bernard matthews chargrilled chicken but none of my stores do it any more!!!!:cry:
