    My first week I had a great loss, 5.5lb, but on my 2nd weigh in I sts. I was guttered as I have been 100%.

    The only thing I can think it may have been was I had a banana everyday and I didnt have as many syns as the first week. In my first week I had between 12 and 15 every day and last week I probably had about 5 a day.

    Can any one let me know if these things could have caused me to sts as I am confused and it has but me in a bad frame of mind.

    my advice is to look at your weight losses over 4 weeks, not week to week.

    I have been doing SW for over a year now, and some weeks i would maintain or STS for no reason....the next week i would lose again - everyone is different, so just keep to plan and i promise the weight will come off.

    Banana's are free foods - so unless you mush/mash them (like in a smoothie) or cook them you can eat these freely. I think you may have had too little syns. The minimum is 5 a day, and the recommended is 8-12. Try to up your syns and dont be worried by doing this - its part of the plan rules....!

    Good luck xxx

    Elle took the words right out of my mouth. Definitely look at your weight loss over a month, it will even out. Dont get despondent, sometimes your body trys to hoard your fat in reaction, it will sort itself out.

    i had a STS in my 2nd or 3rd week. couldn't understand but then i realised that i'd reduced my syns from 12-15 a day down to around 8 a day. i upped my syns and got a good loss the following week!

    It's always so good to read that we should be eating more syns to lose weight!

    Sorry to hear you're disappointed. Congrats on week ones loss though!
    I lost 5.5 lbs last week following Xmas and looked on my scales this week and I've put on at least a pound! No reason for it at all bit think I was just really flukey last week.
    Our bodies work in mysterious ways!

    I have done SW a few times 'blush' - more than a few times - bigger blush. It really doesn't matter what you lose in your first week (although a big loss does spur us all on to try a bit harder the 2nd week etc) and yes I have been disappointed with a STS the 2nd week and even a gain one time in the 2nd week !

    HOWEVER, from experience I have found that about 20 weeks into the plan I have always lost about between 20 - 28 lb's - no matter whether I've had gains or losses or stay the sames - 20 weeks into plan it's about 2 stones'ish.

    So, don't feel disheartened - keep that chin up - do as good again this week on plan and you;'ll probably have that loss this week - and 20 weeks in - post again and let us know how much you've lost.

    Good luck.
