    I'm 4 days in and I think I'm doing it right and it's so easy! And you don't spend all day thinking about food!!! Feeling so healthy full up with all my superfree foods! Lol x

    I'm struggling with working out the syns!

    I understand you can eat as much as you like of the 'super free foods' I just don't totally get how you work out the syns as yet!

    I've over read on here that it's 20kcal per syn..

    If now, google "how many syns in a..." and then it generally sends you to a thread on here!! X

    i did slimming world for a few months and i did really well...i omlu stopped because i fell off the diet wagon at christmas and i never got back on it until the following june!....one of the things that i learned the hard way is that although you can eat as much as you like of certain foods, i took that a bit too literally for the first couple of weeks and my weight loss was really poor!...as soon as i cut my portions back, i found that i could lose weight at a faster rate, and i still wasnt hungry! i was just eating too much of the free foods due to greed rather than hunger! good luck! xxx

    PS. WickedWitch74 - how do you add a tracker to your signature? I have created one but don't know how to get it on here. Thanks

    As far as I understand it, the super free foods should be making up a third of your dinner plate ;)

    hey missbeee!...once you have made your ticker you should see some text boxes underneath it with various codes...such as html etc...you need to copy and paste the one that says bb code (i think thats it from memory) and then you go to the screen where you edit your profile....you click on 'edit signiture' then you paste the code into your signature box....hope this helps! if you get stuck, give me a shout! xxx
