    I do them daily. Don't see the point in saving or depriving myself. If I want to have a pizza I'll hav a flexisyn day.

    I try to eat at least 5 per day and then have something a little bit extra on a Saturday night like wine, bit extra mayo with dinner and so on. Im on 2 syns per day this week as i'm just back from 2 weeks off plan for Christmas and New Year so wanted a wee boost. Will see if it works :) xx

    I'm a 10 - 15 syns a day kind of gal :D but then again I rarely drink so I don't need to save for when I go out etc.

    I think if I started the week knowing I could use 105 I would use them far too quickly, then run out and feel deprived the rest of the week.

    Using them daily means I am quite disciplined about it all, and as some days are a bit under I don't worry too much if I have the odd day where it might fall slightly over.

    As has already been said though, I don't go out drinking, so perhaps this is easier for me.

    Same as sparky, I like mine daily but don't drink alcohol so have no reason to save them really.

    I don't drink alcohol but I still use mine weekly. I use most of them on Saturday and Sunday and for a lunch out in the week.

    Does doing them weekly affect your losses?

    I count them daily, with flexible syns I don't feel I need to do them weekly.

    In my head i work to 10 per day, but if i have only say 7 one day i'll use the 'spare' 3 on another day. So by the end of the week i have had 70,
    I then dont syn my blob of tomato ketchup or mango chutney etc, i am disciplined to not pile on loads if extras, so by the end of the week i am still within 105.
    works for me :)

    I used to use my syns daily but I like to have a drink at the weekend so have now started to use them weekly. I generally stick around 10 a day during the wek but have extra over the weekend. I'm still losing around a lb a week which I'm happy with.

    I tend to go for between 5 & 10 syns a day and have a few extra at the weekend.
