    I just thought it would be interesting to see what other members downfalls are (and what they do to overcome them?) and what are your SW Saviours?

    For me my downfals are:

    Wine
    Cheese
    Chocolate
    Takeaways
    Meals Out

    I'm meal planning now which really helps, i've limited myself to wine on a Tuesday night (grocery shopping day) and Saturday night. As for takeaways we've not had one since i was back on plan a month ago. I've finally perfected Indian Curries and a few chinese dishes, just wish pizza was so easy lol! And when i eat out i just cannot be good for some reason - so we've not eaten out in the last 4 weeks and i've made some SW tasty meals instead ;)

    My slimming Saviours are:

    Mullerlights
    Tinned Tomatoes or Passata
    Herbs and Spices
    Natural Yoghurt and Quark or fat free Creme Fraiche
    Green Tea
    Honeydew Melon

    My downfall is cheese and chocolate so I have 42g of reduced fat cheese grated with ryvita and tomatoes and for chocolate, I have a bag of revels for 8.5 syns.

    My saviours - cottage cheese, jacket potatoes and baked beans and eggs. Always have stuff in the fridge for an omelette.

    "just wish pizza was so easy"

    There's a roasted vegetable pizza on the SW website which is really easy - 4 syns per serving on All Plans. Make the base using a pizza base mix (4oz) (I use Tesco's when I make it). Follow instructions on pack and then roll out to rectangle 25x10cm, press with fingers to form a rim about 0.5cm from edge and place on baking tray.

    Chop and roast veggies, such as onions, courgettes, peppers,mushrooms for about 25 minutes at 200 degrees C.

    Meanwhile, put passata, tomatoes, garlic clove and 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar in a pan and bring slowly to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Leave to cool.

    Then assemble your pizza by covering with the cooled passata mix, roast veggies and then spray with FryLite.

    Cook at 200 degrees for 10 minutes until the pizza dough is cooked.

    my downfall is pizza and takeouts!

    my saviour is knowing i can still have pizza and takeout on SW - just adapted!!!! so instead of Duck i have chicken, fried rice is now boiled or steamed rice, pizza is synned or a homemade one!

    I think there are some things you just will go bonkers if you deny yourself, so i try to make the plan work for me! xxxx
