    This weekend I had my younger brother staying with us and made a conscious decison to be off plan for the weekend. Not flex synning, not saving up syns or anything like that. Completely off plan and fully acknowledging that I would probably not lose any weight at Weigh In tonight.

    So, I can't get to WI anyway, but I thought at the very least I should figure out exactly how off plan I went and I am frankly shocked at how many syns there are in some of the stuff I ate. Somehow I managed to eat 180 syns over the 105 your supposed to have as a limit! I've seen on here a few times that you need to eat 3600 extra cals a week to gain a pound, so 180 syns is around that!
    Now don't get me wrong - I had a great time, and I didn't worry about it at the time. I'm not even that worried about it now because I made (what I thought was!) an informed choice (off plan = no weight loss) and I have been back on plan since Monday morning so that was not an issue.

    My question is - how do you all manage those off plan days? Do you actually have no syns for a week afterwards, or half your syns, or what? I have a week to undo any potential damage and continue loosing, which I think is doable if I am proactive.

    As a side note- I realised that my taste bunds has changed massively in the last 3 months because for the most part whenever I ate something I kept thinking - this is rubbish - why did I ever eat this stuff (McD's in particular!) so a off plan weekend to that extent is unlikely again!!!

    That makes me feel slightly better about it. So I'm just going to stay on plan and see what happens. At least I can console myself with the fact that on Saturday I walked absolutely miles to show my sheltered little brother as much of London as I possibly could! That should have burnt a few cals if nothing else.
    PS - Love your location information - used to live somewhere with a Leeds telephone number & a Bradford postcode myself :)

    I've had a bad 3 days too, I'm a florist and over the mothersday weekend I just didn't stick to plan because I didn't have time to plan meals! And today I just couldn't get motivated to get back on plan! I'm not WI tonight as I've got stuff planned but really need to get in plan this week and get a good loss next week! Shall we both draw a line under this week and just got for or this week? X

    You know what, I think to stick to any plan there has to be flexibility, & you have that with SW. I would draw a line under it & start again, that's life! You are never gonna be 100% forever so the more you can think it's not gonna ruin the rest of my weight loss the better. It's the 90% rule isn't it. Good luck hun xxx

    I actually made it to weigh in and bought my next 12 week countdown before i weighed in to make sure i wasn't tempted to throw in the towel when i gained. Lost half a pound!!

    Thanns! Though Not sure i deserve it - not exactly a great advert for the plan - but it does give me hope that i can do this long term!

    Hi All,

    Well done Kingleds - a good result after all.

    I think that it is a fantastic advert for the plan! No one could possibly stay 100% on plan 100% of the time - you'd go mental after a while. The plan is all about making healthy choices most of the time and getting back on track when you loosen the reins for a while!

    My problem is not the food but the booze! :wave_cry:
