    I am finding that having an allowance of Syns a day isnt really working for me, so i have decided to try the old fashioned way of starting off the week with 105 and working down. I know that there are people on here that do that. I just wanted to know if they found that better.
    My consultant wont approve of it but what they dont know cant hurt.

    I find that I usually end up having more syns at the weekend than during the week. So I do the same, think of it as 105 syns a week rather than 15 syns a day. To be honest I don't find that it really makes any difference to my weight loss whichever way I do it. :D

    I used to do it this way as I worked shifts so eating times were all over the place and it also really helped on a weekend when I eating out/drinking etc etc. I weighed in on a monday and it never affected my weightlosses having more on a weekend.

    I cant go without my drinks at the weekend so I start my week off at 70 and whatever I have left I enjoy, only on week 2 so not sure if it makes a difference but I know I wont stick to a diet if I dont get 1 night to relax (within syns of course lol) :)

    I do syns weekly and it's been absolutely fine. I like my weekend treats too much to do it differently!

    hi tara40 i see u live along the coast from me i'm in bexhill, i use 15 a day but think i might start doing it on the whole amount and save more of my syns for weekends as i'm usually hungrier then for some strange reason :)

    If she does just refer her to the SW FAQs on the website where it says that it is absolutely okay to use your syns weekly ;)

    I've done both - used my syns weekly and also by day, and haven't noticed any difference in my weight loss either way.

    I've been doing weekly syns for ages and it suits me just fine. I can quite easily go some days without wanting or needing a single syn, whereas other days I have massive chocolate cravings to satisfy.

    Have lost better since doing it this way! Can't see the point in forcing myself to have syns one day then desperately wanting more to play with the next.

    i think that it is a case of trial and error. you can have between 5 and 15 a day, but it is really seeing what suits you best.
    this isnt working for me very well as some days i need more and others i dont need any or very few, thats why i have decided to start with the maximum of 105 and work downwards. I will probably aim for around 70 syns for the week (which is the 10 a day that you said) but i will still have the option for the other 35.

    was doing really well, had extra on Friday and the then 20 syns on saturday, had about 45 for sunday to wednesday, but then we went round my sister in laws to help with some repairs and it went downhill from there. i had a couple of glasses of wine that i didnt anticipate and her spuds werent done in fry lite, but i dont think that it was too bad considering other weeks.
    am a bit down this week with my mankey shingles behind, but am trying to stay on track.
    thanks. how are you doing this week xx
