    Tried to look for syns for you chick and sweetcorn is free, galaxy hot choc is 4syns per gram and skips are 4.5.

    So your doing fab! :)

    Have you tried the options hot choc indulgence. They are very nice and only 3 syns, the normal ones are 2 but i find the indulgence much richer.

    Have a nice day. X

    Great thank you so much!! Thought I had overestimated the galaxy but better safe than sorry. I usually drink tea but managed to run out of tea bags and didn't have any options but I bought a few of the normal sachets last night, didnt realise the indulgent ones were only 3!

    Great idea with the cake cut offs, my cakes are 4 inches high so even a cut off is alot lol.

    Weigh in will be Wednesday, have to make sure I loose some weight now I have a beadie eye on me! Have you got a food diary? Not sure how to subscribe yet but want to follow a few when I work it out x

    Think I've found it! Thank you.
    That's why I chose a Wednesday! Plus Monday Tuesday aren't usually baking days for me so made me feel better. You look like your doing well to me with your awards at the bottom of your signature!

    I love food as well!! I haven't got huge amounts to loose this time and found it easier when I had alot to loose Tbh.

    So yesterday wasn't a good day

    Breakfast: 2 small wholemeal slice of toast hex b and a teaspoon of jam 1 syn

    Snacks: Carrot sticks and a smidgen of buttercream to check taste (2 syns?)

    Lunch: Steak salad and muller light

    Tea: Chip shop (hangs head in shame) had a handful of chips and fish bites although I removed the batter on all but one. Don't know how many syns this all adds up to but from the eating out thread im going to say 15 for chips and 5 for the battered bite

    After tea breaking bad snacks: Fat free yoghurt, plum, banana and carrot sticks. Usually share size bag of walkers so improvement!

    So syns add up to 23 probably more to be honest but couldn't face anymore

    Hex a was used for milk in my tea.

    Here's to a better day today!

    Yesterday I had:

    Breakfast: 2 slices of small wholemeal toast (hexb) a teaspoon of honey (1syn)

    Lunch; past with tomato onion and chicken and muller light

    Snacks ; Apple

    Tea; tomato spaghetti with cheese (Hex A)

    Snacks ; Pear and hazelnut options (2 syns)

    So in total I had only 3 syns, was trying to make up for the awful chip shop syns the day before.

    Was really naughty this morning and jumped on the scales 2 days early and apparently have put on 0.5lb Really hoping this was just punishment for my impatience.

    Dont worry about the scales yet, they do go up and down like crazy. My hubby hides my scales and gets them down when its WI, that way I dont get on them everyday as it really dictates my mood! Grumpy if ive put on and grumpy if I havent lost! Just Grumpy really!!;)

    Had my bbq and it ended up being a very naughty event. I dont think I had any less than 2000 syns!:eek: Whoops!!

    Enjoy the rest of your BH. x

    May get hubby to hide the battery, I do sometimes weigh myself first thing and last thing and I need to get out the habit!

    Barbecue sounds fun, 2000 syns sounds very naughty tho!!

    I've been good today had a long walk with the kids and only had about 3 syns. So far so good but bought curly wurly for later!

    And thank you again for the kind words about those silly mikado sticks on my food diary the other day!

    No problem freakydarkstuff! When I did it before I felt guilty for using my syns and wasn't until i realised that's why they were there and I enjoyed the plan!

    Yesterday i had:

    Breakfast: 2 slices wholemeal bread with scrambled eggs (hexb)

    Lunch: Mugshot and banana

    Snacks: 3 haribo sour dummy sweets (don't know on syns will say 3)

    Tea: slimming world chips and home made burgers with loads of salad Raspberry and cranberry muller light poured over blueberries and banana slices and a curly wurly.

    Used hexa on milk for tea (I drink alot of tea!) So think 9 syns.

    Also went for a lovely walk with my parents and my 2 children through the woods to some lakes to feed some ducks and did some running up a massive hill with my lo so feeling yesterday was a good day. Little lady has decided to throw up every 10 minutes today so while she is having a nap going to prepare something free for tea so I don't just grab anything after the long day I'm bound to have! Luckily little man's back to school so only one to deal with. Booked a little Monday to Friday caravan break for 16th June last night so hoping to lose 6 lb at least for then fingers crossed!

    Your jacket for tea looked yummy and very good! You may syprise yourself sometimes it works like that and if not at least you know where you were naughty. Nothing worse than having no clue where you went wrong! Good Luck.

    Managed to only have 6 syns so far and that was wholemeal toast I had with beans for lunch. My daughter has kept me occupied alot tho!

    Hoping I haven't gained tomorrow but don't mind if I sts as I haven't done too much exercise!

    Lunch 2 small slice wholemeal toast no butter (6syns) baked beans muller light tiny bit of cheese other half of hexa

    Tea: casserole with beef onions peas potato's and celery and oxo with a portion of broccoli
