    Hi All,

    I was wondering what everyone does with their syns for the week?

    Do you use them up and still get good losses?

    I only used 41 this week and know I should have more as this is a plan for life. Just wondering how everyone else does it?

    I seem to use them mainly on a glass of wine (5 syns) or sauces.

    Thanks! :)

    I use most of mine every week and average 1.5 - 2lbs a week weight loss which I am happy with. If you don't use them then as you go along your journey you will have nothing to cut back.

    A very resounding YES from me!!!

    I know I am at target but when I was losing I still used them and averaged 1-2 pounds a week and never felt deprived. They were always used on chocolate and biscuits.

    It's good to use a fair few of them as then when you are struggling it gives you something to cut down on. I had to cut down to 5 a day a I approached target!

    That's a really good point! I'm going to make myself use them up. 1.5 - 2lb a week is a fabulous loss. I'd be thrilled with that :)

    I generally find it hard to use all my syns....I seem to use mostly free foods and rarely use syns with them. It's not purposeful, it's just that I tend to like the combination of free foods. If anything my syns are used in my weak moments.....like tonight....my daughter has just been to Asda with her Grandad and came back with chocolate cheesecake!!! Why would they do that to me!! lol
