    Ive seen some of you talk about flexiable syns and wondered how they work?

    For example say if i wanted a treat tomorrow how would i work it for tomorrow and then the rest of the week??

    It's all about planning.
    If you have something special coming up, decide how many syns you are going to have. It may be 50, 60 or whatever you decide before hand.
    Try to have a low syn or syn free day until the event and then use the syns you planned. Count your syns and then stop when you reach the number you decide on.
    Continue back to plan the next day.
    You may not have a loss that week but you should not have a gain and if you do, not a big one.
    I don't think flexi syns should be used for little treats. That's what our syns are for.

    That's not what flexible syns are, you are saving your syns for a blow out and that isn't really recommended by SW.

    No, flexible syns ISN'T about saving them up! it's about spending £70 a day but on a Saturday night out allowing yourself a budget of £200! Then Sunday get right back on your budget of £70 again :)

    Flexi syns really means have a blow out on a meal out once in a while ... you dont need to pay them back just enjoy !!!

    the thing is you should have them every so often... for example a celebration like Christmas day.

    It doent mean have the flexi sysns for the Christmas week and New Year ...lol!
