I'm new to the site although I've been reading for a while and found it really helpful.
I started Slimming World two weeks ago. The first week I stuck to it completely and lost 6lb. The second week it was my birthday and I managed to resist most treats but did have a couple of pieces of cake and quite a few chocolates... I didn't eat many other syns during the week though and lost 2lb at weigh in. However, this weekend I have two meals out, Italian on Friday and all you can eat Chinese on Saturday. I was worrying about eating too many syns and putting weight on and for some stupid reason decided there was no point trying to be good and so had a massive binge today :-( I feel so guilty and stupid as I probably could have stayed within my syns on Friday and flexi-synned on Saturday. I'm embarrassed to write down what I've eaten but am going too anyway. I've had four Hotel Chocolat chocolates, seven Thorntons, the remains of a bag of Walkers Sensations, five Crème Eggs and a piece of chocolate cake. I can't believe I've done it- that's more than my weeks syns in one day! The only good thing is that now all of my birthday treats have gone.
If I'm straight back on plan for the rest of the week is there any way I can avoid putting on weight (even with the Chinese Saturday) or have I blown it now? I get weighed on Monday. I feel so guilty and horrible :-(
