    Hi, just been looking through the food diaries and noticed a few peeps write weekly syns used and weekly syns left to use!
    Can we do that? Or should I aim to use them daily I.e 10-15 a day or 70 a week?

    I'm thinking if I think of it as 70 I wouldn't feel so naughty using more some days!

    I use mine weekly as I generally use them for alcohol at the weekend and the remainder for things like gravy, salad cream, branston pickle and marg etc

    I couldn't use them 'daily' as that would mean I could have a bottle of wine on a Saturday night!

    I guess it comes down to the individual and what works best for you

    I was under the impression that we should use the syns on daily basis, that they can not be rolled over. Then what do I know?:D

    Personally I dont see why it really matters as you are still having the same amount of syns a week regardless of how you use them. Just my opinion anyway! Each to their own!!

    I use mine daily but if I'm having a drink on the weekend then I use them weekly! It's never stopped me losing when I get weighed ( I guess I might've lost more doing them daily, but I wouldn't know ).
    My con told me that if I wanted them weekly then that was my choice, she even gives out a sheet with 105 smiley faces that you Mark off as you use the syns

    Using them weekly is better if you want to indulge at weekends really

    Oh Monday WI would be terrible. Mines on a wednesday so it's not too bad. Friday would be the ideal day I think

    my wi is Monday and it makes no difference. Fat doesnt magically appear the neaxt day. What seems to affect it for me is if I have a heavy meal on Sunday evening not the syns.I do it weekly and much prefer it.

    Yeah I guess many years ago when I did SW I got weighed on a Monday and used to go out every Saturday and drink loads, I never stayed on my syn allowance! It affects me if I have a 'heavy' lunch on WI day, like rice as it seems to just sit in my stomach and bloat me
