Hello everyone

I am very new to Slimming World. I'm still trying to get my head around it as I have always done WW.

The only thing I am finding confusing is when i cook a recipe and there is Syns involved. It serves 4 for instance, do I divide by 4 to find out how many syns Ive had? Sorry I bet I am being really blonde.:8855:

Welcome to Slimming World. Just to wish you sucess on your new journey. Usually it is per serving, depends where you are getting your recipes from.

Welcome! Usually if your following a recipe it will be syns per serving. What cookbooks have you got?

I was always a WW girl as well - I am doing much better on SW tho! Good luck! x

Welcome to SW!! I was always a (very hungry!!) Rosemary Conley girl but have come back to SW for the second time and determined to do it this time thanks to the EE option. I usually find that the recipe tells you if it's per portion - and in SW recipes it usually is!!
Good luck x

Welcome to slimming world. Like you I've always been a ww member. Been with sw properly for around 2 months now and loving the plan. Do you go to meetings? Are you using sw cookbooks? I love them and find them not too expensive. About half the price of ww. I try and make syn free meals personally (other than nutella on my toast - yummy!!!) and keep my syns for things like a treat at the end of the day!!! Good luck with sw x

It does get easier and before long it will be routine. Good luck with your journey xx
