    I usually use my syn over the week rather than a set amount daily and I'm driving myself crazy trying to figure out whether my syns finish on WI day or if I get a fresh set then!! Is your WI day the end of one week or the start of a new week??

    I weigh in on a Tuesday and don't have any syns that day until after weigh in so then look at that as the start of the week if that makes sense? Helps to reduce the twilight zone temptations then as well in theory! :)
    What day/time do you weigh in?

    I'm an online member and I weigh in Friday mornings. So would Friday be the last day of my week? Or the first day of the following week? I can't believe this is like quantum physics to me :eek:

    I guess it depends when in the day you WI.

    I WI on a Wednesday evening so my new week starts Thursday morning. When I did WW years ago my WI was in the morning so my new week started on WI day.

    I weigh in on a thursday evening and that is the end of my week. The new week starts on friday morning and thursday night after weigh in is a bit of a no man's land ;) I am usually good but it is the one time that I allow myself to fantasize! Currently I am planning fish and chips after weigh in this week but my cousin's husband is moving in with me on friday and has just mentioned a bottle of wine on friday evening so I think there is a slight wee chance that friday night will be wine and takeaway in which case it would be prudent to skip the fish and chips.
    I do count whatever I have on thursday evenings but I also allow the points to be counted back across any I have saved and borrow them from the week ahead if necessary.

    I have just reread this and decided I sound certifiably insane

    I WI on a Thursday eve & always make sure I have enough syns left for a glass or two of wine after WI. I start my next set of syns on a Friday morning.

    I must admit this is something which has bothered me; when I returned from hols I'd gained 7lbs which took me over my target, so I started keeping a note of how many syns I'd used & how much I'd lost/gained each week, but did I add in the syns used Thursday daytime or Thursday day & eve:confused:

    I weigh in on Monday night and my week starts on Tuesday, however Monday is probably my least Synful day! In fact I don't have any Syns on Monday I have just realised!!

    So if I were you and weighed in on Friday mornings I would either start Friday or Saturday morning.

    I started SW on a Wednesday and my WI is on a Wednesday, so as far as I'm concerned, my 'syn allowance' is re-set each Wednesday

    I know lots of people here don't go in for it, but I'm a big believer in Treat Night after weigh in. Not bingeing, but being able to have a bit of what I fancy without worrying about syns. So, I weigh on a Wednesday evening then don't count any syns until Thursday morning. At a rough estimate, I probably have about 20-30 syns max, so 400-600 kcals of 'non-free food' which I don't think is enough to ruin the week ahead, but I think that's because portion control and not overindulging is so ingrained in me now. Tonight I'm planning hummus and salad in a white (SHOCK HORROR) pitta from the kebab shop and a bottle of Newky Brown. YUM.

    When I used to WI on a Thursday evening, after I would indulge in too much wine to either congratulate myself of cheer me up, depending on the result, and the new week would begin on Friday morning.
    Now, I WI on a Tuesday morning, my week begins on a Tuesday morning, so no boozing, perhaps that is how I am doing better?:confused:

    I start my week on Monday. I weigh in on Tuesday evening. There are 2 reasons for me doing this.
    1) I don't then eat loads of syns on Tuesday evening after weigh in and not count them - its just a normal day - there is no treat night.
    2) If I want to go out on Saturday night and use a few more syns than 15, I can do so - if I have some which I haven't used all week. But crucially, I am not then using syns from later on in the week and therefore depriving myself. I have at least 5 syns a day all week, and then whatever is left over on a saturday from the previous 5 days I use, along with the 15 syns for that day. Then on Sunday I am back to the usual max 10 syns.
