    I save my syns for the evening as that's when I want something sweet too. There's so much free food you can eat I avoid spending syns on meals if I'm going to want sugar later (TOTM mainly!). If I get a craving in the day I fob myself off with a dark chocolate highlights (only 1.5 syns) and then I've still got enough to have an ounce of smarties or a highlights mousse or a couple of mini milks or a skinny cow lolly etc...
    Smarties tonight :)

    Oh and mugs of warm SF vimto help me too, if I'm full of liquid I don't fancy sweets. Nice and cosy with the way the weather's been.

    You really need to get yourself the start up books! Almost all of your questions are explained in detail in there. Have you seen the suggestions on another thread, about joining for one week (£4.50) to get your books?

    I'm not a big chocolate person, but I do like quark mixed with sweetner and an options sachet.

    You'd only need to join for one week (£4.50 if you take advantage of the offer someone else mentioned to you). That will get you all you need to get going, and is WAY cheaper than buying off ebay, and not much more than you'd need to pay someone for postage. Honestly, I think that's your best bet. I'm sure most classes welcome kids....and even if they don't like it, tough, you'll only be there once anyway! lol

    Most groups don't mind if you take kids along, a few of the Mom's at our group bring theirs if the OH isn't home. It's only £5 admin to join at the moment (think it's normally £10) so there's no time like the present. It's not really a diet you can follow properly without the books, the weekly menus in the magazine don't give you the same freedom.

    I take my kids with me if needs be but don't stay to image therapy on those times. Not fair on everyone else... but up til now it hasn't been a problem, there had been babies in pram, being fed or kids running round. I think as long as your leader is happy with them being there, and besides about 80% of members are mothers then what does it matter ???

    a curly wurly is 6 syns I think. If you put it in the fridge, it takes ages to eat if you try ;)

    TBH, I rarely have chocolate, because once I start, I want more, so I avoid it and it didn't take long to stop craving it. If I want something sweet I'll have an aldi opti fit yogurt. The museli ones are really nice. It might sound a bit crappy replacing chocolate with a yogurt but it's sweet and takes away the craving for sweet stuff.
