Hey!

I'm down in Cork City! (originally from Shropshire England) I've been doing SW via Body Optimise.

I've been on the hunt for Quark, found it nowhere as of yet apart from the English Market - but that was made with Full Fat milk and was 7.8% fat :eek:

Hi Ladies,

My local Tesco stocks a greek 0% fat yogurt which I have been using as a substitute. It's ok. I had a great loss in the first week but I think ate and drank too much this week and have stayed the same. Have been very positive for the last two weeks but tonight I just want to eat rings around myself.

Plan for next week is to stick to the plan 100% and exercise.

How is everyone else doing...

Hi Say...Oh I miss the English Market....:sigh: I used to get it in Tesco at Wilton... well got it there once or twice, might be worth asking them if they can get it in again... I had to ask them about it and as they got it in ( only a few times mind) couldn't have been the only one wanting it...

Ooh! I'll have to look into that. We're off to Tesco out at Mahon Point or Douglas village (after Eircom Engineer decides to turn up!)

As those Tesco's are ... well, they're lovely and they're the only place I can get the Fibre plus bars :cry:The only place I can get Alpen lights that aren't apple and sultana.

I think I have a list as long as my arm, the tesco just off Patrick Street is horrid! I do long for a clementine, a nice ripe one!

Hated Paul St Tesco.... Wilton was mt fav and the nearest to me... I lived just outside of Macroom... used to love Dunnes but they vary so much from shop to shop...and hated SuperValue too...

Oh god, I don't think I've even ventured into Supervalue.

Tesco on Paul St is ok for certain things, but if you want fresh produce, nooooo!

Started getting it again from the English Market, the only problem is walking past the counter for the sausage people. Cooking all those sausages is deadly (for me!)

I'm in Wicklow too. I did slimming world when I lived in England for a few years and it's the only plan that ever worked for me. Pity there are no Wicklow clubs yet, the Dublin ones are just a little to far away. I was never a big Quark user so I've not missed it but I find low fat fromage frais can be a good substitute for some things.

Hey! I have the best of both worlds! I live in Cavan but go to the club in Enniskillen so ASDA is right beside me! :) Still would love to find out the syn values of Stuff from Dunnes and SuperValue, as thats where I would shop mostly! :)
 
#13
I live in county antrim but only started SW on monday but the club i go to has a butcher that brings SW sausages and burgers with no syns had some earlier today they were really nice, was afraid to try quark in case i didnt like it lol
 
#14
It is pretty easy to work out the syn values of stuff online.

Still plodding along here. Just back from a week in Mayo where I ate and drank waaaayy to much and put on 1lb so am hoping to get it off this week!

I can no longer go to the class. So I am missing out on logging online for syn values :( I find I am trying to stick to everything listed in the book in case I go over in syns.
