I used to have toast for brekkie, a sandwich for lunch, and bread with my dinner in the evenings. Since starting SW I do still have my 2 slices of bread most days, but there are days where I'll just say, to hell with it, and have a hi-fi bar instead.
Your bread addiction is a learned behaviour, and soon enough you'll get used to not having it all the time. Try saving your bread for the evenings and have a nice toasted sandwich.. that way you still get your bread treat without using your syns.
I too love bread!!! I find the less I have though the better my losses are so that keeps my hand out the bread bin. Would you not try green or orginal plan that way you could have 4 slices of ww bread a day, as you can have 2 healthy extra a day on those plans. Saving your syns for other things!

No need to apologise for having a vent. That's what this site is here for. Be it about the diet or the dog! You must be very worried. Strange that they said it was nothing and now want tests done. Maybe it's just a precaution.
I hope you had your lump checked out. Doctors are quite good and carry out tests even if you don't want it. If they don't then you should request to be referred to a specialist and ask for a test. Good luck and let us know how you get on.
I love bread too. When I started my diet a couple of days before christmas, I was in France - home of lovely bread but when I went to the shops I didn't go to the bread department. I had taken 2 large loaves of WM sliced bread with me but still have half a loaf left. I spend my HEXB on bread but putting the bread in the freezer it is not in front of me to tempt me. Also I had some friends on New Year's day and I bought some French stick which I had a small piece (2 inches) and was hoping my friends finish it but never happend, so I sliced it thinly and put them in the freezer. I noticed if I can't see it then I will not be tempted.

I absolutely adore bread. I try to avoid it as much as possible on SW as I really only like white bread which is obviously highly naughty. I don't enjoy brown bread, and if I have it I always want to smother it in butter, so generally bread is best avoided for me White toast with loads of butter is probably my top craving, but I don't even allow myself some as syns as it is absolutely lethal. Once I get a taste for it I can't stop, and will easily gobble down 4 slices!
Febbabe - I had a biopsy on a breast lump last year, so know what a difficult time it can be. Try and keep focussed on your weight loss and think about how you are working on your health, this will help take your mind off morbid thoughts.
