sorry just reread - 9lbs in week one! Wow! Well done! Any tips?
I know, it's pretty huge! I am guessing it's just so big because it's week 1. My number 1 tip going from what I did last week would be the the grocery shop is EVERYTHING! Prepare and make sure that you have tons of really nice speed free stuff in. Got to love Aldi and their weekly super 6 offers, that's why I had so many passion fruits and peaches last week! Also, try to drink lots of water, I struggle sometimes but last week I had 2-3 litres each day. To help with this, I bought a big sports 1 litre bottle and a big plastic reusable straw, really makes it go down a lot easier.

Ahh thanks! :) Unfortunately they do, if they didn't I'd eat them out of the tub by the spoonful!

Week 2
Sun 13 Aug
Breakfast: Choc Alpro overnight oats (Hex A&B) Blueberries and peach
Lunch: Low fat super noodles, grilled chicken breast, a peach.
Dinner: Jacket potato, Beans, 3 x Quorn sausages (3 syns) yeast flakes (2 syns) Roasted red peppers and tomatoes.
Snacks: Mango, Carrot sticks

I fully appreciate that the pic of my dinner may not look too appetising! I like the roasted peppers and tomatoes burnt to a crisp!
I have also prepped my overnight oats for tomorrow, made my lunch to take to work tomorrow and prepared a plate of fruit for picking on for the fridge (Papaya seeds left in until I am ready to eat them so they don't go mushy, I don't eat the seeds, honest!)
5 Syns used / 49 remaining for the week

I'll be keeping an eye on this, interested to know if the whole "saving syns" thing is a myth. *stares at kit kat bites*. Hope they where worth it at 27 syns haha :)

Doing great so far, just watch that stuff :p

They were gooooood! I'm going to see how I go with the counting down from 105 syns again this week. Next week I will experiment with 15 a day and see which suits me best. 9lbs last week storing them up but with it being week 1 I guess that may have been a one off. I'm all or nothing so I think the storing will be the way to go for me, depending on losses of course! Weigh in Friday, watch this space!

Week 2
Mon 14 Aug (SP Day)

Breakfast: Choc Alpro overnight oats (Hex A&B) Strawberries and raspberries
Lunch: Shredded omelette (3 x eggs) with large mixed salad. Half a big tub of Alpro youghurt (1 syn) with Strawberries and raspberries and 1 teaspoon honey (1 syn)
Dinner: Oven baked haddock fillets, broccoli and carrots
Snacks: 2 x Alpen lights bars (2nd Hex B) A Cadburys Twirl (11.5 syns) a pack of Aldi Crispy Fries (3.5 syns) Strawberries, Pear.
Fancied a cup of tea with 1 sugar and a dash of almond milk in to have with my snacks (read, to dip my twirl into!) Allowing 1.5 syn for that. Correct me if I’m wrong please, anyone?

Also, have started drinking more fizzy water as I find it goes down easier and makes me feel full. Had 4 500ml bottles at work today, so 2 litres with lots of lemon, lime and fresh ginger. Plus another litre of still water at home. Really want to keep my water intake high, so am happy with that!

Lunch for tomorrow prepped (am having a day off from overnight oats for breakfast tomorrow!) also curry sauce made and in the fridge for chicken curry for dinner.

18.5 syns used today / 30.5 syns remaining for the week (Tue, wed, thur)

You will need to add an extra 6 syns to that last day unfortunately as you used your HEXB twice :p

What do those alpen yogurts taste like? They seem pretty decent on the syn values

No, it's a SP day (stated at top) so you get 2 Hex Bs. They are the best yoghurts ever so so creamy! Try them. Amazing!
