    And it seems like it is. Having followed SW religiously for 3 weeks, I have this week regained the solitary lb that i lost last week. Eating carbs does go against the grain, but I have enjoyed my HEXbs, and even had 2 EE days over the weekend enjoying wholegrain rice and some potato. But I did think there was no way I could lose eating like this. I have followed it to the letter. I have averaged around 10 syns, having no more than 15 in any one day. Now I'm just ready to give up!! AAAGHHHH!!!!! I've had a cry, and I can't think of what else to do but carry on. If I stop I really will put on weight.

    My diary is there. Lynda's Brand New Start. If anyone can read it and give me some pointers I'd be really happy. I've got 6 weeks to a photo shoot, and I relaly don't want to look this much of a heffer. If I could lose half a stone I'd be happy

    Thanks

    Right ok...just read your whole diary and from what I can see, you eat the same things quite a lot and also not a lot of it!
    If you are doing lots of exercise, you need to eat more of the free stuff Hun.
    Also a few times you have admitted to going over your syns. This will sadly make you gain weight!
    I dont want to appear harsh, but re-read your diary and then have a look at another one...mine for example has lots of variety and plenty of fruit...and Ive had a gastric band! Lol.

    Take care

    Thanks to both of you. I didn't go over syns this week at all, but you're right slightly over a couple of days the week before. It did average out though, and I know some people do take an average. But, you're right, I'm gonna aim for no more than 10 syns a day, and eat more free food. Lunch is where I ahve a problem usually. I work til 1.00pm, then straight to the gym. This means I daren't eat too much, if any lunch. Tend to snack at about 12.00pm, then I get home just in time to pick kids up from school, then snack again. At this time, I am grabbing HEXbs, maybe I should ahve easy, grabbable, take to work SS foods for eating around the gym. Thanks for the replies. I will keep trying and adjusting. It does seem a good plan, but I'm just really worried that it is too good to be true for me.

    Here's hoping

    I actually don't think you're eating enough. Have a look through all your free foods and speed foods again. Get some chicken, lean ham or some crab sticks to pick and nibble on. I don't eat fruit much as I'm not a great fan, but if you like fruit eat loads of it. Just keep grazing all day on free and speed foods.

    No * week to blame unfortunately. Just need to go onwards and downwards, and keep trying. I think red days are for me, though I did have an EE day today. They are just so good aren't they. Just feel carbs are bad for me. I will get some red day snacks. Crab sticks is good. I like them. Are they free?

    Thanks folks

    Feels weird to be told I'm not eating enough. Never been told that before!! I'll choose to believe it though. He he.

    Thanks

    I think some people on the board find they lose better on Red days, hon - others like myself lose really well on carb-filled Green days, it's a question of trying out the various options and seeing which suits you best. :)

    Keep going with it, try eating more free foods and see how you go.
