Why have I gained in my first week?

#1
I'm feeling extremely upset and disheartened that despite really giving it my all, I gained in my first week on SW, whereas my friend lost 6lbs. I resisted every single delicious cake and chocolate bar in the office and was sat with my stupid cucumber slices and banana. My typical food diary has gone like this:
Breakfast: 40g oats (hexb) and 240ml milk (hexa) + 1tsp sugar
Lunch: vegetable soup (carrots, bnut squash, sw potato, onions and stock) - syn free plus speed veg
Dinner: Something with chicken but almost always syn free, maybe 1 or 2 syns if I had gravy
Snacks: Banana, cucumber, HB egg, clementines, hi-fi bar, maybe a yoghurt.

Where am I going wrong?? I have genuinely felt so hungry all week but have forced myself to eat some fruit instead.

Any advice is very gratefully received because at the moment, I'm thinking I would rather eat what I want and just stay the same, which is what the last 2 years have been!

Can you put down what you have eaten for the whole week? Would be easier to see why you have gained if that makes sense?

Don't give up. Sometimes it takes a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to the plan. Try to drink as much water as possible - In winter I have lots of black tea or herbal tea without milk or sugar.
Hang in there and you see a loss soon.

Because you're eating a diet that's not designed for your metabolic make up. If Slimming World makes you fatter then you need to do a ketogenic diet with less than 30g net carbs a day and a lot more protein.

We don't know what her 'diet' was before she started Slimming World. Some people do put on weight the first week.
