    Hi Susie, just came accross your diary!! Your food is looking great, plenty of superfree stuff, you're using your syns and having your HEXs so it all looks very balanced and looks like you're getting the hang of it nicely!! Well done on your losses, and I'm sure the gain is purely down to exercise! Well done for not being thrown or put off by this! I'm sure you'll see a really good loss next WI as you're doing all the right things! That Scan Bran will keep you 'going' too!! Good stuff but as you've learned it can make you a bit bloated, but to be honest I think that happens when you're not used to it so if it helps, keep at it! The ginger cakes look really yummy!!X

    I'm reading it :)

    It looks fine to me too - quick question as my diary is probably the same - your Brekkie & lunches are similar daily (like me) do you get bored?

    Hi Kwise yes I do which is why I had boiled eggs for breakfast but it's backfired as I still feel bad from the scan bran. I've just had some clementines and a mullerlight and it's hurting again.

    You are doing great!!! Looks really balanced. You know you can have more than 2 dairylea triangles though, don't you? I just looked and it's 5 of the light ones :)
    Also is the birds eye beef in gravy free? I never knew that! :)

    Ok not sure if it was the scan bran or the fact I had no tea but I weighed in this morning and I have lost 3.5lbs this week and a SP yesterday had me 2lbs heavier...not sure if I'll be in a hurry to try it again though

    Well done on your weight loss - is today your weigh in??

    Is the rhubarb muller one of the ones that is changing with added syns? I must check it out to see which flavours they have changed.

    I've still got some of the old style ones I bought last week so they're free at the moment. I did have the new strawberry one and thought it was a bit too set like a fromage frais so I hope the rhubarb one hasn't changed too much

    Yeah I've changed it as I am doing a 12 week challenge and most of them weigh on a Wednesday. I started off on a Wednesday and only changed to a Friday for the first time last week so it's no big deal really
