I started this program last week. I am used to counting calories as did so before my wedding a few years back and it worked well, however straight after the wedding I got pregnant with my third child and have been on slimming world ever since. This didn't seem to work for me, I think i was too greedy for the plan as eat as much as you want, I did and even though this was free wholesome food, I lost about 7lbs in a year! I did exercise, home DVDs and walking but nothing worked so I decided to go back to calories and found this plan. I have been reading everyone's comments all week and it has really spurred me on, I even started the couch to 5k with Zumba and strength training so was looking forward to weigh in yesterday (I weigh every Saturday morning) and to my surprise I gained half a pound! I was shocked, I had felt better all week, more in control, weighed everything even measured my wine out with the jug but still had a gain! Any suggestions would be greatly accepted as I refuse to believe that this is my weight from now on as i just cannot shift the one stone I want to lose, my calorie intake is between 1350-1400 so what can I be doing wrong? I will stick to it but feeling a little disappointed 😕😕
