Hey :) Stumbled across your diary and thought I'd pop in and be a bit pedantic :p I really appreciate it when people pick out teeny things on mine as it gets me thinking 'oh I can't possibly slip in that I've had full fat mayo instead of extra light mayo cause someone will notice, and I don't want to lie cause I'll be lying to myself, so I might aswell get up and get the EL bottle out!' :D

Thursday - 2 syns for ketchup and low fat marg??? Just checking - are you measuring the quantities as you're having them? Same goes for the handful of chicken... measured or estimated? Tspn Nutella - level or rounded? I used to weigh out 5g for 1 syn, spread it onto my scan bran, then accidentally lick the knife. Doh! More syns! And your late lunch/dinner on Sat, do you know how it was cooked? 8 syns sounds like an okay estimate :) but imagine if you'd made that at home! Could have been free, pretty much, as you can have two HExAs aswell so could have made the sauce with 42g reduced fat cheese :)

Hi Ali thanks for the comments - any help keeping me on track is appreciated! :D

Ok for the ketchup I had a tbspn which I think is 1, and for the marg had a tspn - was probably a bit more rounded should I add another syn?
Chicken was estimated :eek: will start measuring from now on!
For the nutella I read that it was 4 for a tbspn so I halved it for the level tspn would that be about right?
Yep I checked and got mine without butter :D
ooo how do you make the cheese sauce?? i love the stuff! Thanks for your help :)
