Sharpie pen and food all syned up


Full Member
Okay I might be the last one to twig onto this but I thought I would share just incase and I think this is really helping me. I have been through all my cupboards in the kitchen and wrote syn values and weight or portion size on everything. And when I get home from shopping I do the same, it might sound like I have got to much time on my hands but it's a really great way to keep a quick track of my syns and stops me just grabbing food when I'm hungry.

That's a really good idea but I think my OH's dad might not like me doing that haha! Definitely a habit I might try in future.

I do this too! It's so useful especially when you're stood in front of the cupboards with no idea what to have!

I do this - it's a great reminder when you are hungry and need to eat but don't fancy free foods.

I've done this for a while and find it's really useful, especially if you're in a rush or have had something stashed away for quite a while!

haha this is so funny I just did the exact same thing a few days ago. Whats the point of writing on a piece of paper when you can just write it straight on the packet!
I also used a sharpie marker pen (they are syn free lol)
