Newbie has a Question

Hi there,
I am new to slimming world, this is my 2nd week, I havent weighed in yet as my group was cancelled due to snowfall.

I need to ask a question, as I had a stressful day today and needed to just relax...

I had a ham sandwich (which is fine, as i am on the extra easy plan). But I had already had my healthy option for the day.

My question is, is it possible to use my healthy option (bread) for tomorrow today? I don't really want to use it as a syn as it's my 21st birthday meal on Sunday!

Many thanks :)

Sorry hun, but you'll need to syn it today and draw a line under it - enjoy your birthday celebrations xxx

No sorry, unlike syns you can't carry forward HEs to the next day or borrow one from tomorrow to use today. Could you turn it into a red day as you get 2 HEBs on that? If not then just chalk it up to experience and move on. And happy birthday!
Im on extra easy, i havent been told about red or green days.
I'm just worried i wont lose weight, because I lost 2 stone over xmas as i was in hospital with appendicitis from 26/12 till 1/1 and didn't eat at all. So i am slowly getting my food intake back, and I am worried that that food will just store as fat as I was in starvation mode.
I spoke to my group consultant and she said it wouldnt but i am not convinced, and i dont have anything to weigh myself on, and have to wait until next thursday.
I am also worried about eating out on sunday because that wil be a lot of syns.

I have really been following the diet well, and havent used my syns at all really. I just get worried, and cant handle being this weight anymore!

Happy Holidays

Meganbowles, relax & take it easy, life is for living. Get it into your head now you will have lots of syns on your birthday, & be happy about it otherwise you wont enjoy your day. If you're going to be drinking try & eat an EE meal & just use your syns on drinks. Or if you wont be drinking have your syns on your meal, simples:p

I always have wine & chocs on a Saturday with MiL so I allocate my syns on a weekly basis. You could try doing that for once. But not all people & consulants agree on having syns on weekly basis & say you should have them each day.

Whatever you do have a lovely birthday & enjoy it, the weight will come off eventually.:)
Thanks Michelle,
I will try to relax. I just find it hard to carry on diets if I dont have any weight loss.
Is there a recipes page in here, as I find lunches really hard to make and keep interesting!

Thank you everyone!
