MiL comes round every Saturday night without fail, she brings wine & chocs So I have my syns on a weekly basis. I start with 105 & work back. I save the choc wrappers so on a Sunday morning I can work out how many syns I've had.
I've got to target so I think you can say its worked for me
Daily for me & I've stopped using my syns on chocolate/crisps/sweets as found I just couldn't stop after a couple of mini bars. Also I never ate chocolate daily before starting SW so thought to myself why am I now...
I use syns on ketchup, extra bread or thing incorporated within my meal. Today for example I'll be synning sausages. Since doing this I actually feel more full/satisfied after my lunch/dinner whereas before I'd want to stuff my face after. After 9 weeks I've discovered that this is best for me.
I use around 12 syns a day but if I do go over 1 day I try my best to have less the next day but that rarely happens now.
I've been doing mine daily but after a week 'off' last week (my first * week in months!!) I've found since restarting this week I've been alot hungrier on some days than on others. So I'm thinking I might try it weekly from Monday to try and counter this a bit.
it depends. this week i have had them over the week as we had friends round we havent seen for years so had a naughty chinese, then it was a big birthday meal for my brother the next day. I must admit though when i've done this in the past my losses were better than when i have 10-15 per day so who knows. After 3 weeks of sts if i've lost this week i think i will do 105 over the week for a couple of weeks
For the past fortnight I have had awful Saturdays which have drove me to drink. Luckily I had saved syns during the week so was still within my weekly allowance. I feel like Im not depriving myself if I save up during the week. If Im honest I find it hard to use all my syns daily anyway as I've never been a big chocolate eater etc I use a few a day on tomato sauce and Light mayo etc.
Oh no I do too but I was super good for like 7 weeks & never touched a drop, but I have them now just not every week. I don't really use my syns otherwise maybe just a wee bit of coleslaw or Mayo. I don't eat bread so have a chocolate fix every day by having a chocolate cereal bar
I'd always done daily, as I like SW's approach of starting each day afresh. I have recently done a couple of weekly ones though, so I could indulge in a fair few pints at the weekend, but stay well within my syns over the weeks as a whole.
I like both ways, but think I will use weekly when I know in advance I've got a night out. I used to flexi-syn, but didn't like having to 'accept' a STS or gain, and doing this weekly has helped me avoid that x
