You're welcome.

Can you tag people? Mine doesn't seem to work unless I type the full nickname.

Thanks Lefty. I believe somebody has to be mentioned first before we can tag.

Thanks @LightandAiry for the new thread. Hope everyone has a good festive season and the scales are kind in 2023. Think my next weigh in is 7 Jan so plenty of time to do a LOT of damage.

As my SW con says, "On plan, when you can" which sounds like a good goal.

Hiya @SpongeBobJudgeyPants my app is going as well as it can this time of year; I'm off at lunch time and evening for festive catch ups with friends. I agree 'on plan when you can.'

I have After Eights, Florentines and Heroes, Christmas Eve onwards I have no chance of staying on any plan!

I have always counted After Eights as 1 syn!

Hello! I've not joined you before- I'm maintenance, though I'd dearly love to get to the bottom of my window, which has never happened!

So I'm half heartedly trying to lose half a stone.

Making Christmas edibles for gifts has sabotaged any hope I had!

Hi @picklemewalnuts I'm glad my rubbish thread title attracted you; I seem to not be doing SW but an NHS app provided to try and reverse type 2 diabetes. It is similar to SW but count carbs not syns & portion control. Hopefully it will work for me.

I meant to specifically say maintainers as well.

@SpongeBobJudgeyPants me too love Florentines I once made my own, not posh but with melted down chocolate chips, walnuts and glace cherriesπŸ’

Ha! When I made my own florentines, delicious though they were, they were weirdly reminiscent of little puddles of sick. They didn't get a repeat! I'm not stylish enough for things like that!

I made SW Ferrero Roche with ryvita and nuttella. Surprisingly good!

Mainly chocolate bark. I used to do candied peel and nuts, both dipped in chocolate. It's quite time consuming. This year I've done it as chocolate bark- melted bars of chocolate in a baking sheet, then sprinkle with various toppings. I've done candied orange peel and almonds, marshmallow and sprinkles (looked very festive).
Salted pretzels and chocolate was amazingly good. I've done a mix for DH of choc chips, pretzel bits, peanuts, mini marshmallows. It's amazing.

It's all amazing. I've eaten far too much of it πŸ˜‚

Hello everyone, first weigh in tomorrow so nil by mouth from 12pm 🀣 cheeky weigh in this morning showed a loss, but tbh I'd be happy with a gain because it would be less of a gain than if I'd not joined last week! I have been on it 5 days out of 7 though.

@SpongeBobJudgeyPants I'd still count an after eight as 1, just like I still use Philadelphia as a HEA sometimes. And I HATE frylight 🀣

Sounds like a plan @PieonaBarm . Fingers crossed for tomorrow!
