    Ah Joanne! I know it sucks but you will get through it!!! I normally have a lot of Options hot chocolate as it is so comforting and gets rid of my chocolate cravings. And making rice pudding with an Options hot chocolate in is nice too as it feels bad but is so good! Or how about mixing an Options sachet (are you sensing a theme here?!) with quark and spreading it over some rich tea biscuits with strawberries on? That is yummy. It is little things like that that get me through. Otherwise get into bed, with a hot water bottle and do not come out until its all over...until next time!!

    Hope you feel better soon

    I needed chocolate on *that* week too. Options mixed in Quark just wouldn't cut it. If you don't have it, you'll crave it more.
    Tomorrow is another day.

    ETA - I wrote this before reading your post Gemmy-Lou

    Well thats bascially what flexi syns is. Instead of having 5-15 a day you can have like 40 one day, 20 another and then use the rest between the week.

    i thought flexi syn was a 1 off day and you just had what you wanted that day in moderation not cut back the rest of the week

    Oh that sucks doesn't it? My periods have always been rather random due to my weight, so I might come on once every 6-8 weeks but it last about, 10-15 days, so I cope by punching things :D A punch bag mainly!


    There is a debate with flexi-syns, the offical SW version is this;
    However other people inturperate in differently, I say whatever works for you!

    As for you Joanne, I say relax and try and stay on plan best you can. Draw a line under today and move on :D

    She's right there - your day where you ate loads, that was your 'flexi syn' day.

    A flexi day is basically where you have lots of syns (but usually you're supposed to do it in a measured, controlled way) and then carry on with the rest of your week as normal (still having your 5-15 syns).

    The alternative is to count up all the syns in what you've eaten, and use the rest of your syns for the week (so that's your 105, spread throughout the week).

    Hope that makes sense? I think that's what you mean, but you've just got the term flexi-syn a bit muxed ip, tis all :D

    Sometimes our lady visitor demands these things, so just put it behind you and crack on :)

    Brilliant! Well done you! The way to get thru those times is just to keep sight of your goal, if you let a cake or a bag of chocolate throw you off then youve had it in my view, if you just think well that was that and this is now then you can just get straight back in the saddle and get on with it. It what you do most of the time that matters, in my view and as you have shown - you can have a star week and flexi them syns and still do well :)

    Goon on ya x
