    Mint! ill pop a post on the old thread with the URL to this one so everyone knows where it is!

    i cant believe how many people that thread found! hopefully most of them will jump into this thread.

    So todays your day 1 Jo? What are you going for? red and green or extra easy?

    im going to start from tomorrow (which is my class day) even though i have been doing a little bit of a pre diet diet ;) i have not been weighed yet in an attempt to soften the blow at my first weigh in!

    im not 100% sure how the teams work in the SW section of the forum in Cambridge they compete with the other teams by adding together the teams total weight loss in % for each week, ill think ill peruse the stickys a bit :p

    Hi Erin, not sure how the other teams work but we could definitely put a team effort in and compete against another team!

    First day today, I got down to 12.2 in November after doing 10 days of the master cleanse... Just needed a quick win before Xmas but the cravings were too much and I'm really looking forward to eating home cooked food again!

    Weighed myself today and I'm 12.12 had a good day although i had a lie in and I've had a few wines... Will put my syns on tomorrow....

    What about you Erin? Xx

    i suppose it depends what youve eaten already today xD

    how did it work out?!

    i read somewhere that smash might be some syns but Mr Mash is free? maybe its free on all im not 100% sure though but both work fine on the base!

    im going to try and make one myself tomorrow and see if it works out as well as my sisters xD plus i think the garlic she put on mine was still raw when i ate it lol ><

    Hi, just seen the link to the group. I live in Prudhoe, Northumberland, and tonight is my weigh night, after a WHOPPING gain over Christmas. Its a start again job! Re: the Smash pizza bases, we were told in our group that we had to syn them, as they were being used in a different way than they were intended for, like you have to syn cous cous if its in a cake! Seems a bit mad to me

    I don't get that...? That's ridiculous... Well i'm going to count them as Syn Free until I get officially told otherwise...

    That's like counting Beans as Syns using them in soups, cakes, pate etc because that's not their original intended way of eating...

    MADNESS...!!! :mad:

    oh yeeea i heard about that. same with fruit juices and if you smoothy fruit up into mush you have to point it cos its easier to digest or something and it makes it more calories or sugar or...blah blah i cant remember xD

    i didnt know that about the smash though :O damn!

    @Brothers -yea im a serial dieter aswell tbh xD a rerererererererestarter! done WW, Cambridge, SW eeerm...and stupid ones like cabbage soup (vomit) SW is defo the best so far!

    im glad you pizza worked jo! my sis made something else today which was MAD nice! its like... a curry sounds weird and gross i know. but its like a tin of asda chickpea curry mixed up with some like packet chicken flavour rice then baked in a bread tin when it comes out it cuts like break and is kiiinda like onion bhaji but more chickpeaish.

    if anyone wants the recipe ill get it proper off my sis but its meant to be a picky savoury snack and its omnomnom!

    its my first day back at work tomorrow and im not prepared at all! might have to nip home and whip up a pasta in sauce >< doh. i truly believe the worst thing you can be on SW is unprepared xD

    why are my posts always epicly long!

    If you ate ten oranges you'd feel full. If you juiced them you'd get less than a pint of liquid, and that wouldn't fill you for very long at all so the juice is synned. The food abuse rules are often based around how filling the food is, and how likely you are to not pick at more food later.

    That being said, if smash pizza fills you I'd not be worried about synning the base, but thats just me.

    First karate lesson tonight. Absolutely terrified lol!!!
