Oh I completely understand about the need to see the change on the scales! Plenty of us here will have had the same experience!
And the same with the loo issue, my consultant mentioned it the other night at our group - quite a few people have that experience when they first start the plan as generally their fibre intake changes quite drastically, so it's your body getting used to the change in diet
(I'm now reciting the speech our consultant gives )
Increasing your exercise by quite a bit can have an adverse effect on the scales because of a build up of water in your muscles.
When we exercise, we create little tears in our muscles that obviously need to repair. We then end up with fluid in them to help them repair. If you ache after exercising, it's your body repairing these little tears that we create.
If you've increased your exercise since starting SW, you may not see the results you want on the scales for around 4 weeks, but you may notice that your clothes are feeling a little looser, and you've lost inches even if you don't see the results on the scales.
The best thing I can suggest is that you keep at the exercise, and as disheartening as it is to not see any/much change on the scales, it will show after a few weeks!

I experienced this a few weeks ago, i done 6 hours of cycling one week and when i went on the scales i had stayed the same, i was gutted, but as Sarah says the inches have come off and can you can feel it in your clothes. I done the 12 week count down and done my measurements when i started so do them every so often and can defo see the difference so i would suggest making a wee diary with your measurements then you wont feel so disheartened.

Thanks everyone!! The results are in this morning, I'd say 11st but my partner thinks 10st 13lb.
It's really helped keeping a food log, which I'm going to continue. I'm a bridesmaid for my friend next June and want to be down to at least the top end of 9 stone. That's the slimmest I've been and most comfortable. But I haven't quite got an exact figure in my head yet.
I'm planning on upping my exercise this week coming, nothing too drastic, perhaps a class or two a week, something realistic that I can continue. I've taken measurements as advised so when I don't see a change on the scales, hopefully I will have lost inches.
You've all been such a great support this week 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Thanks everyone!
Still ploughing on this week. I've just made mini quiches for lunch tomorrow but didn't realise until I got home I'd bought low fat cottage cheese instead of fat free, does anyone know how many SYNS that will make the mini quiches. I've used 300g and it makes 12 quiches. I don't want to spoil a good week by not counting them!
Thanks!!

Another 2lb lost this week!! Been keeping track with my food diary which seems to be really helping me! It's surprising how easily you could go over your syns with all the ones "you'll think you'll remember". Keeping my eye out for the winter spice ribena as I hear it tastes like mulled wine 😋 Am I right in thinking it's syn free??

Xx

Well done on the loss!!!

All sugar free squashes and cordials, as far as I'm aware, are syn-free.
