    Hi everyone!
    I rejoined slimming world last night ( I did it about 8 months for a couple of months) and I am so motivated, but for some reason I am really scared to use my syns! My rational side knows that they actually help your weight loss and the consultants encourage you to have between 5-15 (my consultant told me to start out having 10 a day) and even though slimming world worked for me last time I still can't get my head around being able to use syns to have treats and still lose weight! Please shake some sense into me! :)
    Thanks for reading!

    Like your consultant says, use around 10 syns a day and you'll soon be fine using them when you see the weight dropping off ;) Good luck!

    I know what you mean, I've been hoarding them for some reason best known to my inner self! I know they're there to make the diet more comfortable and lots of people seem to use them to jazz up regular means rather than two gin and tonics (me last night
    Actually, do you know if you can 'save' them - it's my birthday at the weekend and I've seen a bottle of champagne in the cupboard which i'm hoping is for me!

    My consultant says it's fine to save your syns - maybe not every week, but if you know you've got a night out or celebration etc, then you can save your syns for that night. And happy birthday for the weekend!

    Thanks for replying! I think I would prefer using my syns to jazz up my meals too (gravy, condiments etc) rather than actual treats. I will definately use my syns, just had a bit of a wobble lol, I never thought about it like that Honey but you are right! Anyway I am off to have my steak, slimming world chips and salad, yum yum and I might use some syns on some mustard for dipping, mmmmmmm!
    Thanks again :)
