    Just wanted to say how much i am loving sw. I dont feel like i miss out on anything and 5 weeks in i have lost 1stone.

    I just cant figure out why i always found it so hard to stick to a diet before. The only thing i can think of is that sw is more like a lifestyle than a diet.

    I have noticed that my sweet tooth and obsession with crisps seems to have dissappeared or at least is dormant for the time being!

    Unlike other diets i now have the confidence to go and buy food without my nose in the books constantly and just seem to refer to them now and then for syns.

    Yep I agree 100%. For the last 18months I was eating/drinking really badly. Takeaways, wine, crisps chocolate.

    I feel so much better now, not only i have lost weight but I'm eating great delicious food. I am making Chilli tonight, its so tasty and I can't wait! I really do believe I will carry on eating this great food, I only worry is not to let the bad snacks back in when I get to target.

    Like you I just do not want crisps or choccie at the moment. I really want it to stay that way lol.

    Don't get me wrong I've still been having some crisps and choc but not to the extent I was before.
    I used to eat a whole bar of galaxy caramel without even thinking, now 1 square of it it enough!

    It sounds like your at a really good place Karen! I hope that can be me in the near future, my Food Optimism book is like my bible at the minute, i've always got my nose stuck in it.

    I still need my choc fix everyday too, i use most of my syns on it actually. I hope this calms down a bit when i start discovering healthier alternatives!

    When i want chocolate i normally have an options/highlights hot chocolate its a lot less syns than a bar.

    Another thing i have done is mix the pack of options with just enough hot water so its like a paste and then dip fruit in. Actually i might do that later on, i'm making myself hungry now. Lol
