Having been told at class I'm not using enough syns, I now have a Syn Tyn... well actually it's just an asda carrier bag... I have:
curly wurly - 6 syns
fudge - 5.5 syns
milky way - 6 syns
quavers - 5.5 syns

As long as my bf doesn't find it, there won't be any major binges!!! xx

Ooh I've got one. I love that I can (mostly) leave it alone and not feel the urge to eat everything in it all at once. This is a totally new thing for me!

Low-cal muesli bars - 5 syns
Fun size Snickers - 4.5 syns
Fun size Smarties - 3.5 syns
Curly Wurlies - 6 syns
Mini Bros (like Aeros) - 2.5 syns

I don't have anything like that. Firstly because I would end up eating the lot if it were crisps, secondly am not really a chocolate/sweet person and thirdly I'm trying to get out of the mindset of rewarding myself with food, with it being a treat.

Hey you know what would be good, a syn tin and a little list inside the tin of all the syn values so when you open it up you can just indulge rather than grappling around for your book or looking it up online

If we all had this mindset we would never have had a weight problem in the first place. I treat myself to foods such as chocolates and it is just that, a treat - a small part of my balanced diet where as before Slimming World it was more than that hence why I got overweight. If you keep high syn foods as treats then its part of a balanced diet, I will teach my children that such foods are for treats, not for all the time - makes sense to me?
