I'm sorry you're feeling so down about today. Sometimes we want to eat for reasons that have nothing to do with food... have you tried asking yourself what you would be thinking about/doing if you weren't focussing on the urge to binge? For example, would you be worrying about something to do with work? Feeling anxiety over a phonecall you need to make? Overwhelmed by housework or bills? I don't know if you are anything like me, but food is my 'go to' coping mechanism whenever I feel sad/anxious/stressed/overwhelmed/bored. Maybe you need to find a new coping mechanism, too? Sometimes figuring out what you're REALLY eating over can lead you to take steps to resolve the real problem, and solve your desire to eat at the same time.
Why not try to do something that's not related to weightloss and slimming, like watching a movie or going to visit a friend? You've done so well over the first two weeks, keep focussing on your achievement and hopefully this will pass x
Oh Tamkat, please don't stress! I think we all get this sometimes, and the advice you've been given above is brill!
If it is just genuinely about food, what is it you're craving? I'm sure you could make something that's similar but at least half, if not none of the Syns!
When I have days like this I have to eat! I make a mound of SW chips followed by a really 'naughty' dessert. This is usually jelly and low fat custard with fresh raspberries. A small bar of chocolate or quark mixed with a low syn hot choc an fresh fruit. This last one definitely curbs my need for junk as it's its sweet and sickly.

Your dinner sounds quite comfort-foody, so hopefully that'll distract you, I always find I feel really positive after a really good, healthy 100% day - where you know you've done really week think it boosts you along. If not, have a day for it, don't binge for the sake of it, but maybe have a really healthy day and something a bit naughty in the evening, one meal wont hurt and you could flexi-syn and it might just help. Remember that Slimming World is a lifestyle change, not a diet, occasionally you're going to want something off plan and you can't go your whole-life without doing so.
Take a day if you really need it, enjoy it and get straight back on plan. Slow and steady is better than punishing yourself for having cravings. a meal off doesn't mean you have to eat till you feel sick, just have a little of what you fancy. Maybe do a few bits from a takeaway but make your own rice and chips etc, or make a healthy pizza, damage limitation.
Just remember that if you have a break, it doesn't mean you've failed - we often punish ourselves for it because we think we've failed, but we haven't really, we just had a blip, you WILL get there in the end, you WILL reach your goal, be kind to yourself -that's what's important.
It's nice to know he loves you unconditionally, but not helpful for you! I hope you find something yummy and diet friendly to nom on! It is an addiction really, the same as alcohol is for some people, and I don't think people realise how hard it is, I get from my partner a lot "just don't have it if you're not meant to", if it was that easy, I'd be skinny! And the cold weather totally doesn't help!
