    Not sure how this works so tell me if i'm posting in the wrong place please. Rejoined SW on monday after several failed attempts. Feeling really positive and motivated. This is my time!! Day one went great. Had the smothered chicken for tea which was yummy. Better than pub grub my hubby said which is praise indeed. Full of cold today but need to stay away from the lemsips, soothers etc and save my syns for nice stuff. Good luck to you all. Bring on day 2 x

    Hello and welcome - you're in the right place!

    Glad you enjoyed your fab first day, and hope you get a good loss this week.

    Take care though with your cold, and def use your syns for a Lemsip if you need it, you need to look after yourself, healthy eating or no healthy eating! xxxxxxxx

    i'd definitely recommend the classic chicken curry, its really lovely and sooo easy to make!!!! (Just as nice with beef as it is with chicken though!) xx

    Survived!! Made a big rice pudding and saved my chocolate for when i got in from work. 100% week so far. Good thing about getting weighed on a monday is hopefully it will stop me cheating on a weekend. Cooked brekkie today and smothered chicken for lunch/tea, Its our new favourite. Have a good day x

    Well its day 6 and think i've had a really good 1st week .Still not convinced i'm doing it right as i've eaten loads and its been really tasty food that just doesn't feel like diet grub. Doner kebabs, kentucky fried chicken, rice pudding?????? Certainly beats the milk shakes i had last week! 1st weigh in tomorrow so guess i'll find out if it really was too good to be true. Resisted the urge to jump on my scales cos i know if i haven't lost i'll go off the rails today then not go tomorrow. Not gonna happen tho. Be positive, be positive!!

    Hi Lin,

    Just read your thread. WELL DONE on a brilliant first week. I'm so pleased for you and that must have given you such a boost. How many syns did you have in the end ?

    Hope this week has started well for you.

    Thanks Gail. Used my syns everyday on chocolate. Felt like a naughty schoolgirl but was advised at group to use them. Was convinced it wouldn't work so was very shocked and happy with my loss x
