    How to resist mince pies?!!

    Think I've found my biggest slimming weakness.... mince pies.
    I've stopped eating crisps because once I start I can't stop. But yesterday we had our work AGM and I had 2 big and 1 small mince pies, which meant 30 syns And today there are leftovers, so I thought I'd just have a mini one (5 syns) but that wasn't satisfying so I had a big one too (12.5 syns).
    Siggggggggghhhhh.
    Sept (week 1): -2lb. Oct: -6lb. Nov: -6lb. Dec: -1lb. Jan: -5.5lb. Feb: -2.5lb. March: -2.5lb. Aim for April: -5lb. April so far: -0.5lb

    AIMS:

    Into the 12s
    Regain my 0.5 stone award
    Regain my 1 stone award
    Don't gain more than 3lb at Christmas (Only 1.5lb gained!)
    Into the 11s for good!
    Halfway to healthy BMI (11st12)
    Club 10
    1.5st gone
    Lose weight on holiday (Lost 0.5lb by climbing a load of mountains to make up for all the wine, phew!)
    Half a stone to go to healthy BMI
    2st gone
    Into the 10s
    Healthy BMI (10st10) soon, but definitely before I go to Spain in June!

    The only way I resist them is tempering how many syns they are. I'll buy so e in for Christmas, but otherwise avoid them. Have you tried telling yourself you don't want them?

    I had this last year and I had to give myself a talking to. What is more important, to partake in all of the festivities and eat and drink what I like for the whole of December and end up a lot heavier or to have some self control and say no, thank you and continue on my weight loss journey. I chose the latter option. I did use my syns on the odd mince pie/ other Xmas treats but I was in control, so by all means have 1, but only 1. It gets easier the more you only have 1/say no I ended up flexi sinning Xmas and new year week and ended up only 3lbs heavier which soon came off. I also enjoyed the food during Xmas more as I had limited it before hand. It felt sooooo good in January when I didn't have 8-10lb gains (yes, people in my group did)
    Good luck and if you do end up overindulging through out December, you know you can get rid of any extra weight in January x

    I make the sw ones they are only 4 syns each. Or the mini ones are often low in syn. The other thing I have discovered is baked apple and tablespoon if mincemeat can be a heb that has taken away my desire for a mince pie, for now at least!

    Ooh, I'd completely forgotten this can be a heb. Thank you for the idea. I know what's for pudding now, with some low fat custard

    Another member said if you buy them put them in the freezer, then they aren't quite as a handy. Then you can microwave them when you need them.

    Hehe I like that idea, except that I don't have them in the house - they're in my office! Might work for someone on here though

    I've managed to resist so far, am going to buy myself a box on Xmas eve and that's that. Its much easier for me as I don't work in an office and I only eat dairy free food so most mince pies are out of bounds. Really fancy one mind but I'm hoping to lose the next 3 weigh ins (3rd is on Xmas eve) then have a week off from Xmas eve

    Go for the icing topped ones instead of pastry topped - you'll save yourself a syn or two per pie :-)
