    Looks like you have a good idea of what you're doing :)
    The only thing I noticed was your cheese portion. You said it was very small. Did you weigh it? When I finally got around to weighing my cheese (naughty I know) I was amazed at how much a HEXA got you-esp if you go for a low fat cheese. Just wanted to point it out in case you were getting less than you should.
    Same with spoonfuls of stuff. I recently started using measuring spoons and realised how little I was allowing myself when I just used regular spoons out of the drawer to guess.
    Anyway, enough rambling.
    Hello, welcome to SW, and good luck.xx

    Looking good and welcome to sw. As honey said no need to worry about the lager, you made your choice and spent your syns wisely :p I sometimes have a solero for the same syns. :D

    SW is a great plan and will allow you to splurge a little on treats.

    thanks for the comments guys.. with the cheese I am so used to WW saying a rather big No NO to cheese i literally grated twice over my ham i didn't weigh it but will do in future to get an idea.. I saw some of those spoon in the £ shop the other day i think i'll get some cos i normally use my toddlers spoons, which are very small...

    Got a couple more diary's to get up and it's going well so far.. think i had a bit of a slip up with a roast beef joint i cooked as i think OH used the juice from joint for gravy !! Bloomin delicious bit crikey alot of syn's i expect !??

    i a super shocked so far with just how much is free and am loving being nicely ful and not wanting to nibble !! Hopfully the start of an enjoyable SW journey for me

    Thanks very much for the comment and like i say PLEASE do tell me if i have counted anything wrong or have forgotten anything it's weird doing it alone but i'm doing alot more planning than normal and hopefully with the help of this board will get my head around it in no time !

    Definitely weigh out your cheese-you'll be pleasantly surprised ;)
    And the measuring spoons are brilliant too.

    I go it alone with help from a friend and this forum and have found it surprisingly easy to stick too. I think, like you, I wasn't expecting all the free foods and healthy extra's. Glad you're doing so well.
    Can't help with the meat I'm afraid, but I'm sure there is someone on here who can help. You could always post in the syn section if no one replies here :)

    Have you thought about getting one of these?

    Gravy Skimmer - Lakeland, the home of creative kitchenware

    I put some water into my roasting tray and scrape up all the juices and bits and then pour it into the jug and then our the resulting juices into a saucepan to make up the gravy with granules. The offending fat stays at the bottom of the jug.
