    5-15 is right :) Some days I have five or six, and some I have the full amount - it depends on what I fancy to eat! Syns are there to be enjoyed and you shouldn't feel guilty about eating the full amount if you want them.

    I did struggle initially to use them, as it felt 'wrong' to eat naughty foods when on a diet, so now I mainly use them in my meals (eg. cheese, oil, or extra breakfast cereal) and for a glass or two of wine. But people on here use them daily for chocolate and treats and have great losses as well, so I think it's about using them however best suits you!

    Eight pounds is fab for three weeks, well done!

    my syns vary on a day to day basis, sometime 5 sometimes 15, last week I had one 'flexible syn day' of 66.5..... wouldn't recommend doing that regulary,

    as above I sometimes use them in my meals sometimes snacks sometimes treats.

    Thats what they're there for, thats how SW is for life not just for now you never have to feel deprived xx
