    Hi -

    I have been going to Slimming world for nearly 6 months now and have plateaued.

    I stayed the same all over Xmas and new year, put on 4 llbs over my birthday, and then got it all off again and I have literally maintained for the past two months which is rubbish as I have been following the plan and keeping my syns down. :sigh:

    I think that alot of it is down to hormones - I suffer from PCOS and that has made it very difficult to lose weight in the past.

    I am now fully back in the zone and determined to lost weight and get slimmed down for my wedding next february - My Aunty and I have a challenge between us where whoever loses the most weight gets a lottery ticket purchased by the loser! :D:D I will be superskinny and a millionaire!

    So yesterday I had my first ever green day! (I have always been an extra easy girl!) I am trying to make 1/2 my plate Super free foods to kick start my weight loss again.

    B - HI Fi Bar (HEXB)
    L - Jacket potato with beans, salad and cheese (HEXA)
    D - Mushroom, Red onion and pepper omlette with 1/2 plate of green salad.

    Snacks
    Muller Light Banana and Custard - so yummy!
    Braeburn apple
    Mango

    Syns
    NO SYNS TODAY!

    I know how you feel with the PCOS, I have that and an underactive thyroid so my metabolism is a little pathetic ;) I don't tend to worry about using syns as the difference between 5 syns a day and 15 is only 200 calories - less than half a pound a week in terms of the weight you'd lose by cutting them out. So I'd say enjoy them but maybe don't go crazy on 'free foods' like pasta/potatoes on green days as carbs are supposed to be bad for us PCOS sufferers in large quantities.
    I certainly don't avoid carbs either mind you :p I just don't use them as much to fill up on as other SW-ers might. I'll either go for fruit or go a bit hungry instead as I know my metabolism just wouldn't be up to normal people's eating habits on SW or any other diet.

    Hope that helps :D
