I know that a lot of people in my group consider weigh-in day "treat night" and after weighing they go and have fish and chips or pizza or a Chinese and in their minds it's like syns don't count on that day.
When I did Slimming World before I used to do the same thing, have whatever I wanted on weigh night. This time round though (I'm three weeks in) I really want to do really well so on "treat night" rather than having whatever I want I just have the full 15 syns.
I figure, syns are still syns and I know some people say that it doesn’t affect their weight loss but I think, how do you know it doesn't? You might have lost another half a pound if it hadn't have been for treat night! However, I do think the concept of treat night is an important one as it’s good to feel like you are treating yourself when you work so hard all week.
So I have decided instead to just have all 15 of my syns on treat night instead. I never have 15 in a day normally (it ranges from 6 – 10 at the most) and I also never have any syns on the day I weigh in until I get home so to have a whole 15 as part of my dinner and dessert IS actually a treat!
Now, it’s weigh in day today – what to have
Last week I had garlic and chilli pasta (with 1 tbsp and 1 tsp of olive oil from my syns to fry the garlic and chilli), a side salad with salad cream and the a toffee crisp biscuit mixed in to a toffee muller light! It was heaven! Grand total – 15 syns
