If you dilute your vino with diet lemonade making it into a spritzer, you're halving your syn. Still tastes nice :)

The problem I have is dining out... I do like to go dine out with my hubby and friends over the weekend, it's hard to stick to salads when they have dishes that look much nicer!

i just dont drink! would rather spend my syns on something better than wine (hate the stuff anyway) i work at weekends and were so skint we dont go out anyway! so nope weekends dont really pose a problem to us, there is no 'week' end here, work carries on all week - all 7 days!

SNAP! Although i like wine just dont like the hangover and like you i would rather have a curley wurley then a glass of vino ha ha ha and I never have any cash to go out either so dvd nights all round haha x

Yep me too. Don't really do spirits so have to plan ahead. I try to save up enough syns so I can enjoy my wine/beer guilt free... well that's the theory anyway :D. Got a new baby and breastfeeding at the moment so limited what I can drink and hoping to lose as much as possible before I salvage some sort of social life. I actually lost weight when I first got pregnant ... the demon drink has much to answer for!

i like wine but when im on the plan i drink spirits as you can have more lol although when i drink i then crave snacks hubby likes a kebab friday night last week i managed a small chicken shish with no coleslaw but lots of salad and i left the pitta bread it was hard but i lost 1 and a half. A few years ago i put on 8lbs in 9 days drinking wine when visiting my mother so i dont drink it anymore.

I just LOVE my wine :D that was the worst thing about doing Lighter Life prior to Slimming World - the fact I had to give up the booze!

I'm planning to save my Syns during the week and just drink them - searching for Syn free meals now in preparation for the Xmas party season :D

Saturday's usually my hardest day. If I get through Saturday on plan then I'm usually ok, but if I 'fall' on a Saturday then the rest of the week tends to go pear shaped. Just gotta get through tomorrow! :p

Thought this was so apt because I am sitting here with a large glass of vino, already had one other and just started craving crisps!!! Oh oh!!!! Here's to another Friday!!! Thank god for body magic!!

I do tend to over eat on the weekends because im not at work and the fridge is just too convenient
I think I also see the weekend as a time to chill out and treat yourself so will have to think of new ways to do that
nice long baths , manicures and face mask maybe ??
