1.5lb off today. I got a bit excited as when i first stood on it did look like it was going to be 2.5lbs off then it calculated at 1.5 🙈 oh well, 1.5lb a week is still over a stone by xmas!

Hi all I maintained last night. I know why though so it's fine. Im positive today and just made a peanut butter powder smoothie with apple, banana, figs, FF yoghurt and the PBP. All the flavour our peanut butter without the syns. Life changing!!


WhoUsedMyName · 10/10/2020 10:43

I love peanut butter 😍 but how many syns does the whole smoothie work out?

OP posts:

Amaryllis69 · 10/10/2020 12:35

Whousedmyname I think 1 tbsp of PBP is 1.5 syns 🤗


Amaryllis69 · 10/10/2020 12:37

Ps I don't count the syns of fruit when pureed as I put a measured amount in ie only 1 apple not 10 but the SW police at group had much to say about the subject 🙄


WhoUsedMyName · 10/10/2020 13:42

🤣🤣well I'm going to follow your version where do I get the powder

0.5 lb off this week. It seems so tiny when I was going for 2lbs.
Every weigh in is a new start!!


Amaryllis69 · 10/10/2020 14:23

Fivemoreminutesplease they all mount up well done. Whousedmyname Amazon 👍

Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone is doing well!

I had my weighing today after skipping last week due to holiday. 4 lbs off in 2 weeks, I am so happy. It is altogether 12.5 lbs in 6 weeks which is the end of my 6-week course that I paid in for (course leader is refusing to acknowledge that I had booked the holiday in advance, even though I put it down on my initial booking form and also texted her a week in advance). Not sure what happens now? Am I on a rolling membership and will be paying £5 each week? Or do I commit again to another 6-week period?

The other day I was planning to make a courgette and asparagus tart that we love, but looked up the syns in the shortcrust pastry and had a heart attack! 72 syns in the one sheet!!! So instead made my own base form half white half wholemeal flour, quark and yeast. It was more like a pizza base but was super nice, my other half commented that she preferred it to shortcrust pastry so win-win!


ListenLinda · 16/10/2020 13:43

1lb on this week, not sure why! Ah well back to it this week. Having chips with my lunch today because its been a crap week and i want some comfort and stodge.
Anyone planning any delicious meals this weekend? Might go get all the makings for a Sunday dinner this weekend


FiveMoreMinutesPlease · 17/10/2020 13:31

Well done everyone. Another 0.5 lb for me. Very slow progress but I did switch from flip flops to trainers for weigh in.


Fluffythecowkiller · 18/10/2020 22:03

Would also like to get involved, I've been a member again since November last year in and just can't seem to stick to it despite having a million reasons to lose the weight! I'm a big time binge water and emotional/stress scoffer!Blush


Fluffythecowkiller · 18/10/2020 22:05

Half asleep message there if you can tell by the sloppy auto corrects Grin


BeigeFoodLover · 19/10/2020 16:26

Can I join in please! I signed up online Saturday, but started officially today... I have just under 2 stone to lose. I'd love to get to a stone before Christmas.

My weigh in day is Saturday :(


BeigeFoodLover · 19/10/2020 16:28

Should add, I tried to follow without signing up at the beginning of the year, but think I need the actual syn counter etc.


DAC21 · 20/10/2020 15:44

Welcome @BeigeFoodLover, love your name! :) I am sure you can do 1 stone by Christmas, good luck with the weighing on Saturday! I am 1.5 lbs away from losing my first stone, actually quite nervous of this week's weighing for that reason. A bit silly really to fixate on that, but would feel good to hit that mark.

I have just discovered that Vanilla Extract is free, so have just had a nice zero fat vanilla yoghurt as an after lunch treat.


ListenLinda · 21/10/2020 17:38

How is everyone? Its been a few days since i’ve checked in, been on a first aid course for three days for work so been exhausted when i’ve got home!
Tried to make as good a choices as possible though!
How is everyones week going so far?


DAC21 · 23/10/2020 11:36

Only -0.5lbs for me this week, I am very disappointed. Still 1 lbs away from a full stone. :(
Will try to do better next week, but this has knocked my confidence somewhat, I thought I had done better. Oh well...
This was the end of my 6-week period, I think will book another 6 weeks or even 12 weeks just to keep my mind to a date target.


DAC21 · 06/11/2020 14:09

Hello! Anybody still here? Hope everyone is doing well.

@WhoUsedMyName Are you in third trimester now?

I weighed myself this morning on the home scale, it showed 2lb loss since 2 weeks ago. I am happy with that, aiming for 1lb/week in the long run but I think had I been weighed at group fully clothed it would not have shown a loss. Have had a few indulgent days, so need to get back on plan. How is everyone getting on?


WhoUsedMyName · 06/11/2020 14:55

👋🏼 hello
8 weeks left but I'm a beast and I can't stop eating so haven't been back to sw which is ridiculous. Well done on up loss

OP posts:

DAC21 · 06/11/2020 16:50

Wow, only 8 weeks left! So exciting! No wonder you can't stop eating, there is a proper baby in there! Hope you are doing okay with the last trimester and can sleep and rest okay. And fingers crossed hospitals won't introduce mroe restrictions for maternity wards.


DillingersMoll · 10/11/2020 10:14

Hi! I've been dipping in and out of S/W for a couple of months. I've managed to lose half a stone, but really need to pull my finger out now and take it seriously. I've got two little ones, aged 2 and a half and a 1y/o. Find I struggle sometimes to cook quick and easy meals that the whole family can eat. I also work 12 hour shifts. Any tips would be greatly welcomed! Smile


WhoUsedMyName · 10/11/2020 11:41

Sorry @DAC21 I'm not getting notifications I upgraded the dc and ended up with ds broken phone!
It's not been a great build up seeing mw and hosp apps etc but this is life now isn't it and I'm sure once he's here things will feel differently Smile hello and welcome to the new poster I did make this thread but have completely fallen off the wagon since I will be back though there are some lovely ladies on here hope they can help.

Alargeoneplease · 11/11/2020 08:14

Morning ladies, mind if I join? 😊
Joined SW last October and had lost 2.6st by the start of lockdown... too much cake and prosecco saw me gain nearly a stone...
Back on it though and determined to be good 🥴 currently awaiting an operation so housebound and unable to exercise but I’ll do it...
