    I think I should post my food diary, cause I'm a tad old (its what my body keeps telling me anyway :sigh:) and my memory isn't what it used to be :D

    I want to lose weight because I have a teeny weeny bit of a health problem :rolleyes: . I have heel spurs in both feet which can be very painful when walking and I am on my feet 1/3 of the day walking to and from our large office. I have arthritis and another major health problem that I won't go into now as it is a long story, but safe to say the Drs and Nurses at the surgery say I could do with losing a bit of weight.

    Right now down to nitty gritty of things. I don't think I am doing this right. I'm on the Extra Easy plan allowing myself up to 15 syns a day (that's the good part) :D I am a very fussy eater so this will probably be my syns for the next year, as long as I can my crisps and 1 chocolate a day, I am happy :D

    HEXA - 250ml - semi-skimmed milk - HEXB - Wholemeal Bread

    Breakfast: 2 Dark Rye Ryvita's with barely a scrape of marg. along it (3 syns)

    Snack : Banana

    Dinner : Lettuce, tomato, cucumber and ham in two slices of wholemeal bread
    French fries (4 syns)
    Strawberry Mullerlight

    Snack : Apple

    Tea : Syn free SW chips, back bacon, baked beans, plum tomato's and scrambled egg

    Snack : 2 finger kit kat (5.5 syns)

    Total syns : 12.5 syns

    Hi there, I am not an expert but I think the ryvitas should be counted as syns as you are having whole meal bread as your hexb. I assumed that the 3 syns that you gave counted for breakfast is for the spread?

    Good luck with your weight loss. There is lots of help and support on here.

    The 3 syns is for the ryvita (dark rye 1.5 syns each) with barely a scraping of marg. I don't count the marg. as it less than half a teaspoon.

    With the wholemeal bread - I have dried bread :D
