I'm coming in here

Going to give SW another bash I think, have done WW previously but getting fed up of pointing everything and I keep using all my weeklies on bad foods but anyway, just wondered if anyone's got any tips that will come in useful? I haven't done SW since last January (I think?) and will be doing it from home with my books.

I've just come back from a weekend away so I'm having a fresh start. My weigh in days are Saturday but seen as I'll only be 5 days in, I may just carry on and get weighed next week instead.

SW is honestly great, just make sure:

most of your main meals have at least 1/3 superfree (ie veg or salad or fruit)
you look up syn values instead of guessing
eat if you are hungry
think ahead and plan your meals

Thanks Tezzy! I'm not a massive lover of fruit, veg or salad (hence why I'm so fat ) but I'll try my best! I'm great at hiding veg in meals so that's a good start for me and can eat it that way.

Stalking I find a good way of getting added veg is to grate it into things! I've got an OH that won't touch veg, I may have been known to grate carrots into spag Bol and chilli

My OH doesn't like veg either and I never thought about grating it! Good idea

It's like weaning a baby disguise it all and mush it up!
