Hi, does anyone else feel nervous about the diet working just don't trust it. Seem to lose more weight if I cut things out like bread.

In what way do you not trust the plan?

I rarely eat bread now and use my B choice on lots of other things.

I am a target member so I do follow a different plan now, but in November, I focused on losing my excess weight and lost 5lb in 4 weeks. It's a lifestyle change and learning what works for your body.

Thanks for replying, I don't trust the plan because I'm nervous to, I ate mostly s.w.meals 1 week and put on 1/2 lb I thought I'd been good. Still working out what's right for me,trying my best to do the plan right.

Hi I don't do messenger as I just don't have time. Share some of your daily menus as there could be something you haven't realised isn't free. I was speaking to someone at group who hadn't realised that cornflour wasn't free.

My usual routine is 3 meals with free and speed foods. Some carbs and then the healthy extras and my syns.

Elbacar Sun 29-Dec-19 19:31:28 I had 1 weetabix with banana raspberries blueberries and skimmed milk. Lunch was chicken breast and vegetables and dinner was a little more chicken with stir fry free and 1/2 jacket potatoe.with little stock pot gravy. Drinks coffee and Diet lemonade. I might have a hifi bar and a apple later for now I'm content.

Keep going, I'm sure it will be off soon. Sometimes it takes our bodies a few weeks x

Elbacar Mon 30-Dec-19 15:30:19

It took me 21 months to lose 5.5st. I've kept it off for 21 months so far. For me it was a marathon not a race.

I do trust the plan, however I have come to realise that some people are more sensitive than others to things such as carbs, so I could be 100% on plan but not lose much at all if I overdo it on pasta or plain jacket potatoes. I up my speed foods and boom, the weight disappears

It's under the weight loss topic of mumsnet.

goldenorbspider Fri 03-Jan-20 09:56:20

Sw is so strange. I went to a meeting and the overweight leader told people if they've gained weight it's because they're not eating enough grin

HeyMac Fri 03-Jan-20 10:00:48

I would actually agree with that. I don't lose if I don't eat a fair bit of food!

Groovee Fri 03-Jan-20 11:02:48

I'm the same, I find I need to eat to lose weight, like it kick starts my metabolism.

Saladd0dger Fri 03-Jan-20 11:28:23

Up your water intake. I been at target a while but was only losing the odd lb until I upped my water. Have you been using all your syns?

Elbacar Fri 03-Jan-20 11:41:20

Thank you for help I only have 5 or 6 suns maybe 2 hi fi bars. Or sometimes random things ha ha.
