Just thought I'd say hi.
Studying adult mathematics must be tough!! I'm at university studying English and History and so I know how hard losing weight and studying can be. For me, being trapped in a room under a mountain of books usually resulted in me eating silly amounts of chocolate! lol.
*Start Weight (again): 146.8lbs*
Hi Laura thanks for reading
Just have to share this! I've just had some sort of curry creation! Tastes like korma but the chicken is spicy because I used red curry paste
I fried chicken with onion and garlic then added the paste. Next I put a few mushrooms in and a tiny bit of chicken stock. The paste didn't seem to be coating the chicken very well so I added a bit of tandoori spice. I made sure it was all cooked through and took it off the hob. Then... (magic ingredient) ... I added a coconut mullerlight!
Tastes absolutely gorgeous. I do have to syn the curry paste but I think it is only 1 or 2 syns a tablespoon.
Fuming! Weigh in this morning and I had lost 1lb, that's only 3lb since I started 2 weeks ago. I'm furious because I have worked so hard! All the fruit I snack on is either a speed or a superspeed and I have always been under my syns.
Somehow I've managed to behave today. I had lunch at Nandos and had a meal for 6 1/2 syns, I went in an olde world sweetshop and all I bought was a packet of flying saucers.
What else can I do? Maybe I should have the full 15 syns a day
Still here! Had a tough couple of days where my body has been screaming out for chocolate. Sunday I managed to keep to 10 syns and yesterday I just crept over 15 by 1/2 a syn. Very frustrated at my slow losses but figure it may be down to my meds.
Just keep battling on, all you can do is keep experimenting until you find whats right for you. Make sure you are drinking enough, Try using more syns, try switching to red/green days.
It could be the meds though, but i lost slow on meds and blamed them, came off them and still lost slow.

Still here, feeling very down, almost in tears. Feel like I have actually put on weight despite another 100% week. If I have put on at weigh in tomorrow think I may stop the plan and have a look at something else. Scared of getting obsessed. I don't want to have to worry every time I eat something that it may make me gain.
1 1/2 lb off! So pleased and I managed to walk to club on my own for the first time! Had a chat with my consultant and she told me that I must stop being so hard on myself. Definitely not going to give in now.

Hi guys, I'm doing an SAS log to see if I can work out if and what I'm doing wrong. So far I have realised I'm not having enough syns because I tend to feel worry that I'll gain if I use them. I've noticed that none of my meals are planned and by the time meal time comes around I am starving and haven't even decided on what I'm having. So I have got my magazines out and done an online shop so going to do some meal planning and cooking
A 350 ml skimmed milk (used in coffees)
B 35g porridge oats (muller mixed in)
sweet and sour noodle pot shot
2 small potatoes with tinned spaghetti
2 small sweet potatoes with tinned spaghetti
3 pink and whites 7 1/2 syns
2 jumbo choc chip snack a jacks 6 syns
I know my food's been a bit boring and repetitive the past two days. Ran out of food as still waiting for online shop

Shopping arrived! Forgot to order baked beans tho . Still can't get my syns in! Got a headache tonight and feeling a bit sicky tho so don't really fancy eating.
I live on the top floor which is four flights of stairs. Carrying my shopping up nearly killed me but at least it's body magic
Hi hun found you lol dont give up. Keep at it. Now that you have your shopping in maybe you could batch cook some meals so that when you get in from Uni you have a meal ready. How many are you cooking for? If/when you batch cook, you could make extra and then you would have lunches at the ready too. This saves picking at rubbish and bad choices.
Try having a filling breakfast and vary them ( says she who has fruit n fibre and a banana mon - friday) lol. I hope your feeling better tomorrow.
I always do EE but I know this doesnt suit everyone, but it works for me. Try mixing yours up a little to see if that helps. Definitely have your syns and your A & B choices, you need them for calcium and fibre. Ill pop by again and see how your doing. Dont be scared to ask questions there is lots of support here hun x
Hi Henny - just popped by to say hi and keep up the good work, you are doing really well
I'm starting this week after two years on and off low carb, and have read loads of threads here about people saying they lost quicker when they used all their syns.
So go for it!
Susie -11.4, 4, 2.2, 2.8
, +2 (Easter), -6
Hi Susie I have a black and white Kitty cat! And Texty
I live by myself. I'm going to do some batch cooking tomorrow, not sure where it's going to go as freezer's nearly full lol! Got some half syn sausages that I can't wait to try tomorrow and I'm going to have a chicken breast topped like a pizza for tea. I seem to have been living on potatoes so I'm going to have a bit more meat this week. I need to come up with some more breakfast ideas. I normally have porridge with yogurt and berries but that gets boring. I'm not sure how other cereals would taste with yogurt on as I don't like to use my milk allowance on it. I could have a sausage sarnie with some bbq sauce, that would be nice! I'm going to make hunter's chicken at some stage this week with bbq sauce, chicken, bacon and cheese (drool). I go to a group to help my anxiety in the morning and every week someone brings cake and I sit there eating fruit! I used to need someone to walk there with me but now I can do it on my own so I must be getting somewhere.
Yesterday I bought a casserole dish and a shake weight thing.
Well done you on venturing out on your own, I can only imagine how hard that must have been the first time, but I hope it gets easier each time. Your confidence will grow gradually, just take one day at a time.
I love the pizza/chicken, Ive also used squarish wraps they make good pizzas, the warburtons white ones are less syns than the brown for some reason but they are very filling. You could also have onions and mushrooms with your sausage yummy and superfree. I buy beef tomatoes, score out the middle and drop a raw egg in with some worcestershire sauce then bake in the oven for about 20mins until the egg is "baked", it goes really well with sausage and beans for a hearty brekkie.
