Awww hun, don't beat yourself up about it! Remember that this is a plan for life, and life throws the odd spanner into the works! I've been known to go out for a meal, or drink my own body weight in syns and still lose, but I'm also not disappointed if I don't. We have to enjoy ourselves sometimes, otherwise we risk turning our SW diet into a chore.

Personally, I would count the 35 syns for your meal, and then try to stick to 5 syns a day for the next couple of days. Try to eat plenty of speed and superspeed foods, and drink plenty of water (which will help with the bloating from * week too).

I very rarely lose when I'm on * week, so if you don't lose, or you gain, chances are it will come off next week when you lose the water weight from * week :)

chin up hun, and let us know how you get on :) xxx

I'd allow myself 5 syns for each day til the new week starts, as you're supposed to have 5-15 syns each day. Also you'll find it easier to stick to plan and not mentally write the week off.

Don't worry hun! Lots of water, do a bit of extra excercise (i know you dont feel like it on your * week but it will make you feel loads better) and cut down on the syns for the rest of the week. Good luck :) xxxx
