I cooked a chicken the other day but found it difficult to remove the skin as it had cooked onto the flesh! Perhaps its just my cooking! And yummymummy23 it really doesnt matter on the time scale to achieve your target, we all take a different amount of time, just keep telling yourself you will get there!!!!

I cook my chicken (without skin) and lamb in roasting bags that way it stays nice and juicy and doesn't dry out plus you can marinade your meat the night before and put them in the roasting bags the night before so all you do is put the bag in a roasting tray and an pierce it before you put it in the oven.

Aaah glad you enjoyed your roast hun as this eating plan is about being able to enjoy your food. You seem to have more will power than me I just have to get rid of the skin before cooking as it's too yummy to resist after :)

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Aaah don't worry hun we all have our weekness and I definitely love my chocolate too so I've discovered a few low syn fixes which have really helped me in the last 3 weeks on sw. I usually struggle to have my HeA so I make a hot chocolate with skimmed milk and options belgian hot chocolate (2syns) and it's REALLY chocolatey ;) I also suck on a cadburys chocolate eclair sweet (1.5 syns each) and it's lurvely when the chocolate melts in your mouth YUM! Oh I genrally suck my chocolate as I find I eat less that way and it lasts longer. Oh and skinny cow to a skinny dipper chocolate ice lolly which is nice and it's only 3 syns too. Good luck for weigh in! :)

No problems about the tips hunny I'm glad I can help :) My weekend was nice thanks as I went to see my gorgeous nan on saturday and I took my own dinner with me which was lamb and potato curry and boiled rice which were syn free so I ate the same as the rest of the family. I took my skimmed milk allowance and a sachet of vanilla canderel with me thinking I'd have a vanilla latte in the afternoon but nan was out of coffee so I had a yummy vanilla milk steamer like you get in the coffee shops so I enjoyed that instead ;) Try not to worry too much about WI as what will be will be and tomorrow is the start of a brand spanking new week in which you are armed with Lady A's scrummy chocolate fixes lol! Good luck for tonight I'm sure you'll be just fine...xx

Ah yes chocolate! I have a cadburys highlight hot drink some nights and that seems to satisfy me. That is also only 2 syns, just like the options. Yes regarding the chicken must have overcooked it, next time I will take the skin off first. Not tempted to eat it as I dont really like chicken skin anyway. Thanks for the tip about the roast bags, good idea, cheers

Hiya hun well done for the loss! I got my vanilla canderel in sainsbury's it's a box with 40 sachets in it - it's got vanilla seeds in it so it makes your coffee look posh and I think its free on all plans but you may want to check as I don't have access to syns online. It's nice to keep a couple of sachets in your handbag so you can have a syn free vanilla latte or hot vanilla milk when you go for a coffee. :)
