Yes I'm a convert overit!!Smile however I'm slightly embarrassed as I got quite excited because I thought it was a full size one (8 biscuits)Blush I was slightly disappointed when the little ones were delivered on my Sainsburys shop!!!
Now I've got my head round it I love them with a cup of tea they are definitely up there with curly wurly.


Heyheyheygoodbye · 13/11/2015 22:18

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff · 14/11/2015 00:10

Syns = 3 x Hoors' Lights

Found mouse droppings in kitchen (downstairs) and bedroom (upstairs) today so strictly for medicinal purposes (eek Sad)

Here you are!

We're at the in laws for the weekend. Totted up food yesterday and arrived at 30 Syns - all eaten for my evening meal as fil cooked for us. I could have halved it by turning down the cheesecake and sherry though Blush

Some great losses here. I'm at 18.5lbs as I lost another lb this week. 8.5lbs to go (although I may change my target later) and as of last week's weigh in I am a healthy BMI which I was very happy about Smile

B: slice wholemeal toast HeB, marmite and spaghetti shapes (shared these with the baby then noticed the BB date was 2011 Shock)
S: apple
L: slice pizza, lots of salad
D: something free to balance the pizza! Probably some leftover veggie pasta bake which is more veggie than pasta.


ProcrastinatorGeneral · 15/11/2015 14:09

Lost one solitary lonely pound this week just gone. Obviously gardening sabotaged me so I'm not trying that again ;)

Overit I could have typed your post myself.

Totally off plan since Thursday. Have resigned myself to a gain but will try and minimise over next couple of days.


ProcrastinatorGeneral · 15/11/2015 19:59

I've just done the online shop to arrive midweek. Hopefully I can salvage something. I hate the skint weeks :/


OrianaBanana · 15/11/2015 20:21

Went off plan the last two days - struggling to get back on the wagon again. Work days are always easier for me as they're planned and structured and busy and I'm not at eg a child's bday party eating cake BlushCake or with a friend for 'coffee' eating cake CakeHmm...


RollerGirl7 · 15/11/2015 21:04

I've been lurking for ages and I need to ask - what is pops? ? I've seen a few posters say it and think maybe you mean pop i.e. coke?? But I need to know.

I've been doing sw about 2 months and not really got my head into a lot of those weeks so only down 10.5lbs.

I only have 7 lbs to go and am struggling, I'm trying to do SP most of the time, at least half the time I fail and cave in for lots of syn things like pizza and free food but it would be good to get ideas of the SP meals you guys eat so I can copy to keep myself interested.


Pisghetti · 15/11/2015 21:25

Hi Roller. Would it be worth just trying extra easy rather than SP if it's tipping you off plan? I know from past experience that I don't do well without carbs and I'm likely to end up binging if I try. Therefore I'll have the odd SP meal but wouldn't do a whole day. For an SP meal I'll often cut up a whole butternut squash into chunks and have those roasted in place of potatoes. A girl in my group makes an SP version of overnight oats with quark instead of yogurt (thinned with some almond milk either synned or HeA) with a passion fruit stirred through. I keep meaning to try it.


Heyheyheygoodbye · 15/11/2015 21:54

Hi Roller when I say Pops I mean a kind of crisp by Walkers. Lots of posters have Pufts which are 3.5 syns I think...Pops are 4 but Pufts make me feel ill so Pops are a good alternative if you like crisps Smile
