Extra Easy do you find it hard to eat all your syns?

#2
Somedays i do find it hard but i try and have a minimum of a day and a maximum of 10 because weeks where i have had less than 5 a day i have less of a loss. I tend to have philli or babybels or ryvita and sometimes choc xx

Sometimes I don't see the point in say, making a cheese sauce out of yoghurt (bleeuuch) when you can have a proper cheese sauce for a few syns
xx
i totally agree on that one. i can't get used to white sauce or cheese sauce made with quark, beaten eggs and whatever else your supposed to chuck in! :( would rather syn it and feel like i'm eating 'normal' food.

During the week I find it hard to use up any sins but then if I have a few gins on a Saturday night I tend to go over my allowance :eek::D

At first, I did. I've now been doing this for four months (ish) and so I'm starting to do more eating out, more cake at work if it's someone's birthday, just tweaking the plan so I can eat like this forever.

I still count the syns though - even if I'm having a flexi-syn day. When I don't count them, that's when they slip away from me.

It made 8 slices- I had 1/8 = 20 syns!!! I added 5 for the scrapings!! It was absolutely delicious!! Think the moistest lemon drizzle cake imaginable!! Won't be doing it again for a while though!! Bloody Nigella!X

I don't have my syns except for with regular meals.. stuff like gravy..
I probably use less than 40 a week..

On occasion I will use more, like last weekend I bought a pack of McVities Krackawheat, thinking that I could have a few as a HeB, but they're not on the list.. so I used 1.5 syns per cracker, and enjoyed every single one i had.

It's each to their own and not having many suits me just fine for now..

Yummy. Sounds amazing. I will definitely think about trying it at some stage but maybe not for a while.................!!!! I presume there isn't any way of making it more SW friendly ???????!!!! (ok, just wishful thinking I know but can't hurt to ask :eek:)

You could use low fat spread and sweetener instead of caster sugar! That would cut out about 40 syns altogether, thus reducing each slice to 15 syns instead of 20!X
