    Hi All,

    Due to major knee surgery my active healthy life changed two years ago and the lb's have been slowly creeping on, along with a rather unflattering spare tyre! So I have decided to do something about it!

    I joined my local Slimming World last week and weighed in at 12st 10.5lbs :sigh: (after always being under 10st this was a huge blow)

    I have completed my first week and fingers crossed I will have lost a few lb's, I haven't been completely syn free but am having a low syn day today to hopefully shift one more lb before tonight...however, when ever I think of going to the group all I can think of is food!

    Does anyone have any ideas for Party/Finger food that is either syn free or low syn? I'm off to a big dog show on Monday and need some ideas to keep my going through the day!

    Hi Katie

    How did you get on at WI tonight?

    Things I can think of off the top of my head are chicken drumsticks (with the skin removed), homemade hummus with peppers and carrot sticks for dipping in, sushi packs (between 1 & 3 syns for a pack from most supermarkets) ryvita's with cheese (Hex a & b) with some cherry tomatoes. Hope this helps :)

    Just need to stick at it, thanks for the ideas! I brought the little book of lunches which has some fantastic finger foods too :)

    Annoyingly I gained 1lb this week...even after 7 miles of walking and a 2 hour Zumbathon :(

    Feeling deflated :cry:
