So I have a 6 month old and a 3 year old. I have lost half a stone in 3 weeks. ( I think the lack if bread and eating less choc has been the thing also snacking on fruit instead of biscuits!) I have had an awful few days with babies sleep and the the general chasing of kids. I am finding it really hard to think about all the sw rules as such. Im still eating fruit for snacks but sometimes dont weigh everything etc.. I am focusing alot on my family meals but its having the time to cook them.I miss just sometimes putting a quiche in oven etc Does anyone use this convince food once or twice a week and have it with veg etc and still lose weight. I just dont think its sustainable for me atm not to. Thanks x

Not ever done SW but have dieted successfully. Regarding home cooked meals, batch cook. Put by any extra portions of what you cook in the freezer for another day rather than have second portions or wastage. Aim to always cook extra portions of whatever you cook. So you get home cooked convenience food.

But yes, I am successfully dieting and still eat out / use the odd convenience food like quiche. I just have a small portion with extra salad. I often order a starter when we go out and get an extra side salad. I would avoid anything very sugary though. That's not just about weight, though.

I've lost 29.5 lbs so far. I run with weights as well.

I batch cook and pop things like soup and lentil Dahl in the slow cooker then freeze extra portions for lunches.

I chop up fruit and veggies and pop them in boxes in the fridge for snacking on too.

I have chronic fatigue so sometimes cooking is beyond me. But dh and my teens are getting good at knowing we have SW burgers or how to make SW pizza.

The Iceland free SW ready meals are handy to have in freezer.
Would be expensive for every day, but convenient if really pressed for time.

I previously used Sw for 4 weeks before my wedding and lost 13lb's. I didn't weigh everything, don't be to hard on yourself x
