Week 5-total loss 1/2 lb. Something needs to change!


So I am on week 5 and due to get weighed tomorrow. I am in the tetrible habit of weighing myself at home and after 4 SP days and 3 extra easy, I look like ive maintained.
I am a returning member who was at target for a year, so i know what to do. Its just not working! Really need to up my game and a little support along the way may help.
Hoping a food diary will keep me focused and maybe see if there is anything I can improve.
Im determined to get a loss and on track because I cant go on like this anymore. (Feeling determined!)

Hi Chantel - can I just ask about the weekly syns - I thought we only counted them daily? Now worried I'm doing this wrong! Yikes

That is right we do. You are doing it right but sometimes if I dont use all my syns I save them for an extra treat and use flexi syns. Best way to do it is daily but some people save syns. It works for some but not for others.


So after finishing last night on 13.5 syns I ended up munching on pringles later. So going to take my 1.5 syns from yesterday and 4 from Wednesday and use them for my slip up. It reslly wasnt too many.
