    Hi all,

    Had a really stressful day yesterday so much going on with my family and ended up so busy i hardly ate. When i got home i was starving and gave in and had chinese. I ended up have Chicken Chow mein and wondered how bad it was?? I do sw from home rather than class so not sure how many syns this would be??

    Throughout the day i had mainly fruit and diet coke.

    Feeling really guilty about it today as its the first time i have given in and had take away in about 3 months!!

    Guess just feeling a little sorry for myself!!! :sigh:

    As takeaways go, Chicken Chow Mein is one of the lowest in Syns i think....

    Hi Kate, I've really struggled with those guilty feelings when I have done this before. This time around I am very much seeing it as a plan for life (very much helped by great comments on here!!), and we all need a treat every now and then, so don't feel bad. Enjoy it, count your syns and keep going :)
