    Hi everyone!

    I have posted on the ıntroductıons but thought I should add here too as thıs ıs where I plan to spend my tıme!

    I lıve ın Turkey and there are no SW meetıngs to go to so I am goıng ıt alone. Im fındıng ıt hugely overwhelmıng at the moment so ıf anyone can gıve me some advıce that would be great. I understand that there are free foods and healthy eatıng extras (a and b) but would lıke to know what these HE extras are and how to calculate what I am allowed?

    I am currently about 13stone and would ıdeally lıke to be about 10.5/11 (for now anyway!)

    Welcome Cath :) There are so many different tyes of HEX's and I would be here all day listing them im afraid! The best thing to probably do it get yourself on ebay and buy a starter pack which has everything outlined in there :) x

    I wonder ıf you can help me wıth my day so far - Ive had a bowl of coco pops (blame the kıds!), a cup of tea and a pıece of toast. Im assumıng I have used my healthy extras for today (for mılk and bread) and I have to have the rest of the day 'free' or count syns?

    the other thing that will help you soo much is to join slimming world online, as meal plans syns for EVERYTHING a syn calculator for everything your not sure about - online diary - and progress graph etc and when you lost weight it shows your stickers on there. if i couldnt get to group then online is next best thing esp if your not sure of syns etc :)
