Hi kazbagz.

Sorry to hear you haven't done as well as you wanted.

If you wanted some advice on your plan, you can always post your food diaries here and we an look at them and try to advise where possible?
If you have tried the SP days for the first time it may be a good idea as not everyone gets the SP plan at first

It doesn't look too bad, but you've got to make sure that each meal is 50% each of speed and protein.
For example your breakfast (I assume that's what it is!) has plenty of protein (eggs and beans) but only 1/3 of a plate of speed (mushrooms)
What about snacking on fruit as well as the chicken? He more speed food you eat the better your losses might be.
How many Syns do you use each day? You've got up to 15 and it's always better to use as many as you can rather than avoiding them. It helps you lose weight when you use them.
Do you drink enough water? It's surprising how much of a difference it can make to your losses.
By the way, stock cubes are all free so you don't need to syn them.

It could be worth you starting a food diary thread on here and those that follow SW can help where we see any issues... Might be useful for you?
And it's always worth keeping a food diary - it's so much easier to track your food when you write it down, you can forget the smallest of things when you don't, and it can mean you go over on your Syns without realising it which can lead to small losses, or even gains.

Thanks for advice i dont usually have 15 syns have probably between 5 and 10 I'll try and add more, but really fknt know what to use them on

Try incorporating them into your meals?
Maybe some ketchup with your beans & egg breakfast?
Or some spread on your toast.

We are always here for advice, and if you want to do a daily food diary, we can advise where we can!
