Old hand at SW but now struggling

My name is Jacqui and I am from Northern Ireland. I joined SW in May 2014 losing 1.5 stone in the first year but since then put it all back on again even thogh have attended SW group every week. I now have only half a stone off now and every week it is creeping up more and more. I struggle big time trying to have as much as speed as possible and use all 15 syns every day. The advice I have received has ranged from doing diaries, SAS log, cutting back on syns and exercising - tried it all and nothing works. To be honest would love to give up because I am so obsessed by it all!

Hi Jacqui. Sorry to hear your struggle. Maybe SW just doesn't suit you. There are lots of other plans out there so why don't you look into something else. I started on SW but found it rather artificial, so I just eat clean now and am happily maintaining

Hi Jacqui - Sorry to hear you aren't getting on with the plan.
I know you've said you've been advised to diaries, etc. but I'm in your situation - I lost almost 2.5 stone and then gradually put it all back on. I was ignoring certain foods that I was eating and not counting all of my alcohol at the weekends (forgetting the odd drink or two mounts up lol!)
Sometimes you don't realise what you have eaten that you haven't counted for? The small things mount up quickly, which is where I went wrong!

Have you tried the SP plan?

Hi Jacqui,

I lived in Northern Ireland for 9-10 years. Where abouts are you from? I visit Newcastle every handful of months to see my best friend.

Are you exercising now? If so what do you do? Could you cut down your syns to 10? Swapping things up can help but you have to give it time. Hitting a plateau is crap and frustrating but the worst you can do is not beat it.
