    I tried SW in the summer and lost about 5lb before giving up - to this day I can't remember why I did and I wish I had stuck with it. I wouldn't be in this position now if I had.
    I have a minimum of a stone to lose and it's really hard to shift. I can't afford membership so I am using the net and an old book as guidance.

    Today I am doing EE:

    Breakfast
    2 egg omelette with cheese and milk (HEA)and ham, mushrooms, onion, red pepper

    Snacks
    Activia 0%
    Options hot choc (2 syns)2 marshmallows (2 syns)

    Lunch
    homemade tuna pate with fromage frais with 2 ryvita (HEB)cucumber, red pepper, celery

    Snack
    3 bean salad with tuna, cucumber, red pepper, celery

    Dinner
    creamy tomato pasta (tin toms and philly - 2 syns)chicken, mushrooms, onion, green beans

    That's a total of 6 syns for the day :)

    thanks for the welcome, unfortunately with xmas etc things got kinda crazy - SW was the last thing on my mind for the last few weeks.

    But now I am back on and although it's going to be tricky what with new years and my birthday coming up I am going to do my best.

    Unfortunately I ran out of ww bread today so had sliced white - that's 8 syns before midday! :( and I had some choc coins leftover from christmas.
    so def gone over syns today:
    satsuma - free
    Milk in tea - 1/2 HEA
    2 slices white -
    8
    bacon - free
    Flora light - 4
    brown sauce - 2
    choc coins (37g) - 10
    LUNCH - pasta and veg - free

    Dinner sasuage and mash
    Sausages - 4
    Milk in mash -1/2 HEA
    Broccoli and sweetcorn - free

    Valerie11 - please could you let me know where the newbie thread is? thanks

    GREEN day for me today:
    Brekkie:
    Banana and apple
    Tea with milk (1/2 HEA1)

    Lunch will be leftover veg curry from last night (which was lush and syn free!)

    Dinner is homemade pizzas!
    I'm using the Tesco crusty wholemeal mix for the base (HEB)

    I have no idea how much dough I will need or how much of a HEB it will end up resulting in, but I'm going to pay it by ear. I'll part-bake my base and then weigh it to work out the HEB amount before putting the toppings on. I'm allowing both HEBs just in case!

    toppings will be - tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, mixed herbs, small amount of ricotta cheese (2 syns) low fat cheddar (HEA2) courgette, red peppers, red onion, and spinach.

    OH is having ham, olive oil and full fat cheese on his to 'beef it up' but seems to have no problem with the wholemeal base which is good [​IMG]

    trying to keep my syns really low at the mo to make up for 2 days of going over limit earlier in the week. Yesterday i managed 2.5 and I'm going to try to stick to 5 or under today and tomorrow. It's my birthday on Sat so will definately be needing a Flexisyn day!!!

    Did the maths and averaged 16.1 syns per day this week, not bad for the 'test' week just to see how I manage. And I have lost 4 lb! Looking forward to starting afresh on Monday and doing a whole week - need to prove to myself that I stick to it! going to class on Monday with the Bella voucher - bit nervous (always been quite cynical about 'classes') and I dont do well when I'm nervous, will prob just sit in awkward silence all evening!) but I am looking forward to getting the new books!
