Hi, joined slimming world today and as breastfeeding been told I should have 6 healthy extras daily. As opposed to two, it just seems a rather lot and was just wondering if there were many people who successfully lost weight whilst eating all these 'extras'?

I've lost 11.5lb in 6 weeks having the 5/6 extras a day. I mainly have milky drinks. I usually have at least 4 as and one or two bs.

Hi thanks was thinking how could I lose weight but today is my first day so going to give it a good go. Is it just extra A you have? And just have the limit of one extra B?

Oh thanks just re read your one or two bs.

Just posted on the other bf post. Yes I have lost nearly 2 st since may while having all those extras with bf twins. Also having my syns. It really does work. I found I did need those healthy extras in the early days when I was ravenous. Good luck!

I lost 3.5st in 6 months, I used 2 HEa and 4 HEb as I was starving and I'm not a massive milk fan. I have continued to use the same amount since I hit target to maintain because although dd4 is 15m now, she still feeds a fair amount and you get extra HE to maintain at target anyway, I also have extra syns as I carried on losing so had to lower my target by another 7lb, I've stayed within my target range since then. (i'm pushing it atm though as I gained 2.5lb in the last two weeks because I've lost my mojo a bit!)
