Well done. I was on night shift earlier this week and you end up eating such weird things at such strange times. Especially the first night when you are up for almost 24 hours. Your meals sound delish by the way :)

Hi MMP, thanks for understanding!! Sometimes I feel like a freak eating at such weird times!! Organisation is definitely the key to doing well on SW, or infact any weight loss plan! Night shifts are a real pain in the neck sometimes but we get through them! My problem is I'm always thinking about my stomach, and my colleagues always take in goodies to snack on through the night so it's extra hard!! Last night's Jammie Dodger went down well, but at 4 syns I knew I could only allow myself one!! Thanks for the compliment- I can be more adventurous so watch this space! LOL!X

Dinner in ASK restaurant- 'King Prawn al Limone Piccante' salad! This one's tricky as although the ingredients were all free, it had a lemon & chilli dressing on it and I haven't a clue on the syns so I'm guessing 8 syns just to be on the safe side! Feeling very virtuous that I didn't have pizza or pudding!!

Yay, another understanding shift worker!!! I've actually got quite a good appetite on nights, so it's very easy to dive into all the goodies on the desk, but I try and be organised and take proper meals in, and if I can afford a HEXb, I'll munch on Ryvita Minis or Alpen Lights instead of choccies and doughnuts!!!X
