Good Morning everyone. Im Debbie and Im new here today.
I have heard so much about how great Slimming World is I thought I would give it a go.
As a single parent, I cant afford to join a group or join online etc, so I bought all the books off Ebay.... and I think I have my head around it all. lol. It is a bit confusing, but I think Extra Easy is the way Im going.... well, at the minute anyway. :)
Can I be a real pain and ask everyone their opinions on my menu for today. I need to make sure Im on the right lines.... thank you.
Breakfast - lean ham, spring onion and mushroom omelette (cooked in fry light and 2 eggs) served with beans.
Lunch - Bachelors savoury rice served with various vegetables stir fried in Fry Light.
Dinner - chicken curry made with chicken fillet, vegetables, chick peas and spices and Co-op half fat creme fraiche (1 syn per tablespoon- so 4 syns) served with boiled rice.
Drinks all day - water, Pepsi Max
Syns will be:- 28g Frosties (5 syns), milk from Healthy A and Ryvita Goodness Bar (healthy B).

hi Debbie, I hope SW works out for you, for me its been fantastic. I dont do extra easy so couldnt really say for sure, but i'm sure you;ll get lots of help and support on here. its a great little place lol.
Gook luck


Trying again!!!
Hi Debbie, welcome to the forum and SW. I bought my books off Ebay ~ I don't go to class either. You will find this forum a lifeline though as you will get great tips and recipes and also everyone is friendly and supportive. SW magazines are really good too. I bought some old issues off Ebay. I tend not to do EE but I think your menu sounds ok, (making me hungry actually!!). Anyhow good luck and let us know how you get on xx

Hi and welcome along to the newbies!

Your menu for EE looks good - make sure you have some fruit (if you like it), you seem to have lots of veg which is great too.

Eat lots, don't let yourself get hungry and if you have any problems at all - we are here for you!!

Thank you guys....
I must say, Im stuffed after my meal.... Im not really one into eating at night, so do I have to use up syns and my healthy A and B every day.?

Being new myself also, I understand that you don't have to use all your syns up everyday , I've heard of some people not having any and having them all at the weekend, not sure if that's a good idea myself?
I tend to use both HEXA and just the one B.... But you use them as you want, I used to syn my shreddies but now I count them as HEX

Hope this helps a little
