    Question So syns.. should I be using them?

    Hey,

    I need help.. my daily allowance is 15 suns, I'm following extra easy plan.
    I have calculated my syns for the week and I have around 40 left. Should I be using them? Should I reset them every week?
    I have syns when I need them (like today I had a massive "can't be bothered" day and had a ready meal for 6 1/2 syns) but most of the time I find I can do just as well without them,
    Any advise would be great...
    Thank you in advance

    ~ Vicky

    Hi Vicky,

    They're there to be used, so make sure if you want them, you're using them.

    They always reset for a fresh week, don't carry them over.

    Some people like to save some syns and use them after their weigh in. Maybe for a takeaway and some chocolate (whatever is 'your' thing), but you don't have to!

    Try to use at least 5 a day so as not to feel deprived x

    At the start of your weight loss journey you should have 12-15 a day, so that as you lose weight you can drop syns if you need to and have perhaps 5-10 per day....

    So what did you used to eat before, how did you gain the weight? Do you feel like you are missing out on say a nice bar of choccie? do you like mayo/tomato sauce with your meals?

    Thanks all...
    Well, before, I am a snacker! I used to go work, snack, come home, snack.. so I wouldn't make "tidy" meals. I would easily start a packed of Malted Milk and eat the whole packet by the next day.
    I've stopped all that and have started making everything from scratch and filling up on pasta/rice/potatoes and eating a lot more 0% cottage cheese / beans instead of tuna with a pile of mayo - or something and gravy...
    My downfall I think was sauces and snacking.. both of which I have now stopped. I try where I can to make everything syn free unless I have 50% less fat coleslaw and count the syns by 100g weights.

    I live on my own, so I guess I just got into the habit of snacking instead of actually making meals myself... which resulted in the weight I am now, but I'm determined to change!

    Week 1.. weighed this morning, lost 3 pound. So I will reset my syns today and save them for Friday as I have a Valentine's meal with my boyfriend. But I will make sure from now on I try to use at least 5 syns a day as a rule unless I know there is an "event" in the calendar I know I may need to use more than 15.

    Thanks for all your input.. I am grateful as I'm going this alone!
