    That is the question this weekend. Are you gonna be good and stay within 15 syns? Are you going to have a flexable day? Or are you just gonna go nuts?

    I myself am having a couple of flexable days. The reason is Easter is actually a big deal in my family and getting away from chocolate, roast lamb, cakes, etc is impossible so I know I won't be able to be good but at the same time I want some level of control around the masses of home made fatty foods and chocolate. I have allowed for a bit of each of my favourite Easter goodies without going mad.

    I haven't had a Creme Egg (8.5 syns) all year - last year I think I had one each day! So on Sunday I will be treating myself to one! Other than that normal (ish) weekend for me xxx

    I'm abstaining! The reason for this is because a) I'm in work on a 12.5 hour shift Sunday so it will be easy enough to avoid (hopefully) but mainly b) because I gained 1.5 lb this week, and was soooo disappointed because I was so good all week, INCLUDING on my Birthday!! It may have been fluid retention because *week is coming up and I do sometimes get affected by this, but I don't want to take any risks and my thinking is that if I'm a very good girl until WI I'll hopefully be able to see if it was down to that! If I have a very naughty day and it shows on the scales, I won't know what's what!! So no choccie for me I'm afraid to say!! If WI goes well Monday eve I may treat myself to a creme egg or little packet of minieggs on the way home!!!X

    If I have a good loss tomorrow (I'm hoping for 3lb!) then I'll have a creme egg on Sunday. We'll just have to wait and see...

    It's the ususal wine & chocs for me tonight. The remaining syns will be used on choc instead of the usual wine.


    My sister got me an egg which weighs 188grms & is 27.5 syns per 100grms, the two choc bars with it 25 & 24 syns & OH got me a Thorntons egg with 25.5 syns per 100grms & weighs 191grms, so plenty to last until next WI :D

    To answer your question, no flexi syns for me I'll have the ususal 105 per week. :D

    Gonna just have a real egg haha! Chocolate ones are expensive for what you get and unsatisfyingly sickly too (my opinion obv) but if you guys decide on choccy this Sunday remember it's a holiday and if you love it then one day won't be the end of you :p

    I will see how I feel tomorrow .....tonight going to birthday party so am going to use flexi sins......... at the moment not bothered by an egg one way of the other...... but if I fancy some chocolate tomorrow I will have some and go flexi sins again - I love flexi sins, takes the guilt out of having a few extra - for me that is a big thing... I was always an all or nothing girl and if I had a bad day it back a bad week which often led to a bad month or 3... now I draw and line under it and immediately get back onto plan ...

    I use 42g all bran soaked in boiling water then add 2 sachets of Options or Highlights, 3 dstsp Splenda, half tsp baking powder and 2 eggs. Mix it all together and microwave for 6/7 mins.

    I make tha topping with a small tub of Total 0% greek yogurt (or quark if you prefer) with another sachet of options mixed in.

    The cake is 10 syns or a heb plus 4 syns. The topping is 2 syns for the tub.

    I got the recipe off here - but there are variations.
    I like it with the choc orange options too.
