    Afternoon all, just thought I'd introduce myself as I started my 6-week countdown today.

    I'd be over the moon if I could lose a stone on my 6-week countdown, but anything will be an achievement - I've been overweight for all of my adult life so as long as it comes off for good I don't mind how long it takes!! My ultimate goal is to lose 6 stone by this time next year, so I'm taking it as it comes.

    I'm writing a blog to keep my motivation up, and I found minimins really helpful in the past for getting advice and support from people in the same boat.

    Having just read another SW member announcing they've hit a 6 stone loss I am feeling very positive!

    Anyway, enough from me! Come and say hi if you've just started too and perhaps we could egg eachother on xxx

    Hi everyone, thanks for your replies. To niknooo and romana - the book looks daunting but it's quite easy when you know how, you should definitely ask your group consultant to explain it to you again.
    At the beginning of the book, everything you can have if you're on Extra Easy is on the pages with an Orange tab at the top right hand corner of the page, Green have a Green tab and Original have a Red tab. Then you choose one 'healthy extra' from the 'a' section (page 21) and one from the 'b' section (pages 23-25). After you've decided what you're eating from the 'free' and 'healthy extra' sections you can use between 5 and 15 'syns' per day, and the most common foods' syn values are listed from page 35 onwards.
    Sorry if that's just confused you more - I'd really recommend asking yor consultant! Xx
