    Hi - I am back on slimming world. Did it 2 years ago. Not going to a weekly meeting just doing it myself. I have stuck to the diet, having my healthy extras and no syns but in my first week only dropped a pound. I did 7 the first time. Where am i going wrong? Help please

    maybe you havn't eaten enough - I go to class & they encourage having all or most of syns allowance.

    If you don't have any there is nothing to cut back if weightloss plateaus - maybe your body has gone into starvation mode as you may have cut back a little too much - just a thought

    Some members don't always have their big loss in their first week either hun. I know a few ladies that STS in the first week (one lady even gained) but then came back in their second or third weeks with big losses.
    I rejoined three weeks ago. Gained 2lb in my first week, STS last week but this morning i'd lost 3.5lb. First time i joined I lost 5lb in my first week.
    Hang in there hun. 1lb is still a loss even if just a small one. It all going in the right direction. And remember.... 1lb a week totals 4 stone in a year!!

    Also to re-itterate what Fitz said... the syns are there as part of the plan. Your body needs a certain amount of fat and sugar in it to function. If you have no syns then your diet isn't balanced. I tested this last time i joined SW. My friend had no syns although stayed within plan and i had all my syns while staying inside plan... I lost 3lb that week while she STS!!

    So... enjoy your syns hun!!
