    I was very greedy today at work and could not resist the temptation for a biscuit, but then had another. i reckoned 4 sins for the 2 of them but went online and found one was 3 syns, the other 3½ sins. i would rather have had 3 batchelors macaroni cheese and they would have took longer to eat. no more biscuits. i have told my work colleagues to remove them from temptation!!!
    the biscuits were a foxes golden crunch and rich tea sandwich. think thats their names.

    OMG thats a lot, proves we just dont realise, I was on a course and had 6 rich tea biscuits over 2 days, but ithought they would have been 2 syns each but now I am not so sure. Wasnt worth the syns anyway just did it for habit at breaktime with a coffee.

    Traceya89 I feel your pain lol, we have a 'communial' biscut tin in the office, and it is always full up with M&S lovely biscuits, they all know I do SW in the office, yet they always put the tin under my nose (they all take the pee out of me for my 'syns', gets me down but hey I just try and ignore it) but anyway so they always put the tin under my nose and 9/10 times i say no and I dont have one, but yesterday had 3 of the M&S extremly chocolately biscuits and thought oh they must be around 3 syns each (which is bad enough) but oh no, when I checked using the calories/fat/ etc on the back of the packet and typed them in on SW syns online, they are 6 syns each! 6! OMG terrible terrible, thats enough to make me not want one anymore Lol xx

    don't u just hate it when people know ur on a diet and they have to keep on asking if u want biscuits (or whatever) i went out for dinner with "friends" on sunday had a roast with no pots but they made me feel awkward kept saying i was boring cause i didn't drink alchohol and didn't have a pudding it's hard enough staying on plan without them trying to ruin it for me gggrrrrr :)

    lesson to be learnt - look up the syn value before eating!

    if i am gonna have 3 syns would rather have something more filling and that will last longer than a biscuit!

    I know that moderation is the key, but I also know I can never eat less than 2-3 biscuits at a time, do I just avoid them and try and always keep a stock of low syn sweet treats to hand.
