Yes! When I think back to how much oil I used in my cooking, it really scares me. 6 syns a tbsp! I could use 3 or so in one meal (never ever measured!). I used to always worry when 'dieting' that I would slip up and go back to my old ways, but learning some of these things with SW, I think, has put me off my old eating habits for good.

I can actually feel the oil on my lips when I eat out now..not nice!

Oh pizza hut, with the salad (usually coleslaw and potato salad) the garlic bread and chicken wing starter and then a cheesy bites pizza. (at least this was for 3 1/2 people to share but still) then of course it'd be the dessert. I don't even want to think about either the calories or the syns.

YES.

Breads of any kind, cakes, chocolates, biscuits, not crisps that much as I didn't really eat many but when I did, Pringles, Doritos! Ughhh...

Was out today and made the best choices I could - had a grilled chicken salad, while XOH wanted the most unhealthy thing on the menu so had a double beef burger with cheese. I had two teeny bites - seriously, they were teeny, it might aswell have been one medium sized bite - and synned it as 5 syns, then just thinking about the fact that I was estimating that teeny bit to be 100 calories, remembering how I used to eat the whole burger... UGH! Got Diet Coke for drinks and picked up a couple of Alpen Light bars to cover my HExBs rather than grabbing a choc... Went to the shop with the intention of buying Mikado, if anything, but they didn't have any. So glad, even though they're 0.5 syns each!

I was just thinking the same thing last night. I went to a friends & the food was bread sticks, veggies, crisps, nuts, & lots of pizza. Once upon a time I would have eaten pizza & nuts & bread sticks without thinking.

But last night I just had the veggies & salad & some cheese, but guessed at the weight.

Totally, what's more scarey is the amount of syns in the so called diet foods I used to buy pre-SW. No wonder I wasn't losing any weight.

Hahaha, I say that to my brother! Usually he'll ask me how many syns are in something and then be shocked, but still eat it! His face yesterday when I told him the syns in a Yorkie...!

I used to consider it a pleasure to polish off a large pizza to myself. Also a Super sized kebab...even the smell of them churns my stomach now!
Even if I wanted to, I could not go back to eating these things because of my Gastric band!! I love melted cheese...but it doesnt love me anymore! :(
