Can I do 6 days on plan 1 day blow out?

I'm really struggling with sw. I have been extremely good this week and averaged about 9 syns a day some more some less. But I don't think in an stick to this 7 days a week. I need to eat some fat! Just a piece of crackling with dinner or some chicken skin and some crisps and a cake and some ice cream...

Would it blow my week out the water by having a day off plan?

I think a whole day off plan yes, a planned cheat meal - no.

Sounds like you need to have your full 15 Syns every day so you don't feel deprived.

Well you could try it. It might work for you. See if you lose doing a cheat day.

I weight myself on a Monday first thing (doing it online) and then I am a not as strict for the rest of that day. I will still have slimming world friendly meals but will allow myself a bit cake or a lunch out etc without worrying too much about syns. This doesn't seem to affect my weight loss but I am a slow loser (1-2lbs per week.) My weight loss might speed up if I stuck to the plan 100%, 7 days a week. But I know this way I won't start to resent the diet and will stick with it.

There is having a day off plan, and then there is going on a binge. You want to binge and that's exactly the behaviour you need to try and change.

I feel your pain though, honestly I do. Maybe just one cheat meal? If you've averaged 9 syns a day for 7 days then you have 42 syns to play with already. Bet you could have something satisfying for that.

I have reached target and can maintain by doing 5 days on plan and 2 days off - but I can't lose by doing that. I managed to lose 1.5 stone by having a cheat meal and treats every week after weigh in

I can't wait to get to target (3 stones to go). I am hoping then I can be on plan Monday - Friday, and then enjoy the weekend with takeaway, ,meals out with dessert etc. I'm praying that this will maintain my ideal weight because a lifetime of saying no to apple crumble, ice cream, pancakes and a few packets crisps is a lifetime of sorrow.

I've always (and I've been bloody dieting for years) had the time after weigh in off plan. And I'd lose. I think it's best not to be overly greedy though.
