My downfall is popcorn, I can eat a whole massive bag lol! So I've had to go out and buy snack size packs today that are only 4-5 syns each. I'm tempted to have some now though but I've reached my 70 syns for this week so don't think I should lol!

yeah there are some trigger foods that I just cannot have one or two of, I have to eat the whole bag and I know that toffee popcorn would be one of those. The other one is Ritz crackers though I would probably not eat the whole box but certainly half. lol

I use my syns daily. I used to do around 8 a day but after upping them to around 10-12 I have been losing whole lbs rather than 1/2 a time lol!

Mikados are a good snack half a syn per stick think I'm definitely more of a sweet than savoury person!

Woohoo I lost 2.5 lbs!! I'm happy with that and hope I can keep to losing 1-2 lbs a week, then I'll be at my goal by about January!

Although I splurged yesterday coz we had a family meal and I had more wine oooops! But I'm gonna be good the rest of the week now to compensate and I'm gonna try and just use about 7 syns a day.

Has anyone tried those hi fi bars? I bought some and had one this morning, double choc flavour and they are so nice! 2 bars is your Healthy extra B or 3 syns per bar. I definately recommend them if you have a sweet tooth!

We had taster yesterday too and one guy had made weetabix fruit cake which is 12 syns for a whole loaf tin size, and about 2.5 syns per slice (depending how thick you slice it) and it was gorgeous! I'd never have guessed it was weetabix cake, I'm gonna see if I can find the recipe online for it!

well done ! But don't cut your syns or you will struggle. Instead eat more veggies and fruit!
I cannot be bothered to bake or cook but I wish I did cause there are amazing recipes out there!

Haven't tried the bars but might give em a try now
