    I joined a SW class on thursday after a couple of weeks going it alone (and using this forum of course!;))

    They gave me a password for the on-line doodah and I honestly thought I wouldn't use it.

    BUT I have just spent an enjoyable hour (yes, I know how to live on a saturday!:eek:) going through my cupboard and checking syns. HUGELY surprised. Things I was avoiding aren't actually as bad as I thought they were (ie m&S pastry tartlets...only 6 syns...instead of creme patissiere I can fill them with natural yoghurt and loads of fruit!!)

    I would recommend anyone who has password etc to use the facility...its really enlightening. For instance...was entering some sausage and as I was putting in figures I thought My GOD thats a lot of fat! Hence the 12.5 syns per sausage!!!!:D

    Sorry if rambling, just impressed and wanted to share:D

    I'm going to make it my personal mission that we get one! SW needs to get itself into the 21st Century ;) in my ideal world you'd be able to scan an item using your phone and it would tell you how many Syns it was :D

    I checked the old featsers burgers that I used to get EVERY time they were on offer for a quick tea, I used to get the flame grilled burger with cheese XL bite and was surprised that they were 30½ syns each!! Sometimes I would have TWO:eek: and I'd have them sometimes 2-3 times a week!!

    I'm so glad that I can leave those beehind and make my own huge burgers now and freeze them so I can just cook it up.

    Glad to hear its not just me becoming a bit addicted :D

    I think the app thing is a valid point - I often wander round the supermarket spotting things but don't want to buy them until I know the syns. Then by the time I get home I've already forgotton what it was I was going to look up!!!:banghead:
