    Hi everyone.
    I started slimming world today using the books i picked up when i first joined at the end of last year but i could never keep to it, i didnt think its was possible to eat as much free food as you want and still lose weight. However since i first joined last year i have put on a stone and im now determined to get it off, im going back for my first meeting on wednesday and am really nervous. My problem is i suffer from bulimia and i have quite severe binges, i cant seem to have just one biscuit, cake, chocolate as i will have them all. Im wondering if anyone can tell me of any syn free sweet desserts i can have that will hopefully get me away from the cakes, biscuits and chocolate and on the road back to getting my size 10s on again??

    There are many recipes online.
    I believe some of the most popular are the cheesecake made with quark (the cheese topping is syn free so its your decision how many syns you have by which base you choose - tasty with oreos!).
    Also the weetabix and banana cake is apparently very tasty although i have never tried it.
    Good luck!

    Hi Hannah, unfortunately it's not just bingeing, I have been making myself sick and that and I'm fully aware it's not good for me & I need to stop, my problem was that I managed to lose 4 and a half stone on the special k diet but I was doing that for about a year and a half joined with the gym about 3 times a week. I managed to get myself down to a size 8 but people started telling me I looked Ill and that they thought I wasn't eating. What I would do is go home a have a take away to prove i was. I gave up all junk food when I was on this diet, so when I re introduced chocolate, biscuits & ice cream I suppose I became like addicted to the sugar. Even now I eat about 2 very large take sways for one person a week and eat whole tubs of Ben & Jerrys with it. I've gone from 8stone 11 at my lowest ( which I suppose was underweight as I'm 5'8 and my bmi was 18/19 ) now I'm 11stone and unhappy with it. I'm hoping with this diet I can manage to learn to have things in moderation so I'm not depriving myself of things I like but I'm not overdoing it either. It's just hard as when I have sweet things, I tend to want more. I suppose that's where my will power needs to kick in, I just need to get it back... Here's hoping!
