    Hi, I'm new too and feeling a bit lost. Your day looks ok to me. Its hard to get into it isn't it. I've posted my last 2 days in a diary hoping for some input as I feel like I've eaten too much.
    Good luck!

    hey it looks good although not sure you ave the HEB right ... you can have 42 g of all bran or 2 small slices of wm bread , you could halve the amounts and have 21 g all bran and 1 slice of toast ..... you could save your HEA and have fruit and a free yoghurt on your allbran ( yummy) and then you could top your cottage pie with cheese r use laughing cw light triangles to spread on your toast ??
    you may also want to add a few more syns and some fruit in between :)

    Hi. looks ok so far, are you adding the rest in later?

    I was told by my consultant to count a splash of milk in tea as 1 syn. I dont know if everyone would approve. but it works for me. not sure how much you used in the scramble, but i would just work it out accordingly. x

    I'm new too but 1 splash of milk in tea is 1 syn , if you want a good loss you need to be eating more super free and speed foods so lots more fruit and veg also they say for the first few weeks limit your syns to 10 you can have more when your in control . I lost 8.5 lb first week and this week I lost 5.5 lb , i eat lots of super free and speed foods lots of water or sugar free juice and limit my syns to 10 , hope this helps x good luck let us know how you go on at weigh in x

    Yep looks good. If you are full up don't worry about the rest of your syns. No point eating for the sake of it. 5syns is a reasonable amount anyway.
    And plenty of superfree! Looks like you are getting the hang of it to me! Xxx

    You not put your HE A , you could have 5 x laughing cow light as this, I often do this and keep them handy to munch when I need to of if you buy the extra light ones you get 6 as HE A , just a thought , glad to see you having a breakfast really is important x good luck

    From what I can see you don't use your HE A so you have that to use through out the day x

    There is no HEa in my particular recipe you are doing, not sure what you mean when you said it says different in 2 places as the recipe is only on my blog once.

    Unless you mean on my meal planners. That particular day I had feta cheese with it, but the recipe doesn't call for it.

    Enjoy :)
