    Slimming Towards Summer - Slimming World support thread 2019 7th May 19 at 6:27 PM
    Shiny new thread, with all the info carried over as follows:-

    Slimming World and Food Optimising is a plan for life, it's not a quick fix and you should look at weight losses over a period of time. There are no prizes for speed of weight loss.

    You need to commit to making changes to the food that you buy and how you cook it, because what you've been doing in the past hasn't got you to where you want to be.

    You can't use parts of the plan that suit you and forget the rest.

    If you are not prepared to make a commitment to change the behaviour that has got you into your current situation then nothing is going to change, and above all things, you need to be honest and accountable for every single mouthful of food that passes your lips.

    You need to care enough to take time out to pre-plan your slimming campaign. Look again at the menu plans and see the variety and volume of food you can eat. All you have to lose is the weight.

    Slimming World has been successfully helping people lose weight for over forty years, so trust them and read your Food Optimising books again and again.

    Food Optimising is easy but life isn't. Losing weight is a battle but you have the battle plan in your food optimising book, your secret weapon is free food, and that, together with your healthy extras and syns add up to a healthy way of eating that can (and should) be a life plan. Success is there waiting for you, go for it!

    If you fancy having a go at EE, here are the official 'rules' to ensure that you not only lose weight regularly but get all the nutrition your body needs to function well:-

    Extra Easy:

    1: Choose your Free Food

    Most of the food you eat should come from the free foods list; so that's pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat, poultry, fish, fruit and vegetables.

    And for super-fast, super healthy results, fill one third of your plate with Speed Foods!

    2: Choose your Healthy Extras

    Each day select one Healthy Extra choice and one Healthy Extra choice from our simplified list of calcium and fibre-filled foods, including milk, cheese, bread, nuts and cereal.

    3: Enjoy 5-15 Syns each day

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    If you find your weight loss has slowed down or stopped, check:-

    1. Whether everything you're counting as Free, is Free

    2. Whether you're under-estimating Syn values (over-estimate if guessing)

    3. Whether you're counting everything that should be counted

    4. Whether you're measuring everything that should be measured

    5. Whether you're sabotaging your success in any other way (using SAS logs will help uncover individual long-term self-sabotage patterns) and, if none of these is the culprit, either...........

    A: increase the proportion of Speed Foods to half of your plate
    B: switch to more Speed Foods

    or

    C: try Extra Easy SP - details are on this link - https://www.minimins.com/threads/extra-easy-sp-plan.348340/

    And above all, if you follow the plan, any plan, 100% you will lose weight!

    Remember we are all here to support each other, and to have fun, and to share in any little disappointments.

    Thanks chrisv for the chart as usual. Hope things are improving for you.

    Congratulations Sirens and SSM on being our joint SOTW.

    Chrisv I don't usually join in the challenges but as I'm right at the top end of target range I think I might join in this time. I'll go for 3lb to get me back to bang on target.

    Had a change of plan at lunchtime as ended up losing the morning after going to the Dr at 9 he decided to send me for yet another blood test! I have to go back again on Friday for the result! Had to wait over 2 hours for the blood test so didn't get home until 12 so we just had a jacket potato & beans.
