There were posts I was going to copy and keep (receipes that aren't in the receipes thread) and now they're all gone! Bit heavy handed to delete the entire thread!

I think, for the sake of the 'shiny new thread'... we should keep this one 'on' topic, and keep the (understandable) chat about the situation to the other one....

So, with only two more wake ups til christmas (says my 6 year old ) today I am having a frige/freezer clearing mix2max day

B yogurt and fruit as ever

tea - milk from HA, advent choc (2 or 3 syns)

L green - jacket spuds, beans for OH and DD, sweetcorn and big side salad for me. Cheese on top (HA).

D red - dover sole (yay! cool freezer find!), broccoli, alcoholic syns..

hmmm... no B choices in todays pan. will have to look at the book and choose something. Might even have 'double cheese on my jacket )

Flat Eric - don't worry and just enjoy it - at least you made the effort to try and make something different for yourself!

Hi Dixie -

we *think* that discussing this new, 'extra easy' plan may have had the last thread closed down, so I can't imagine people will be very chatty about it here (for the moment!)... but the full details will be released in classes over the next few weeks.

Don't forget though, that you CAN have potatoes and peas on a red day (as HEB's), chilli with rice (syns) on red, and potato and bacon (HEB) salad on green.

In the new year, we will find out how the new plan allows us to have all the above freely.

When they tell me how I can have my cake AND et it, then I will be very interested!!!!

We were told about it in class today and it is in the new magazine also so I should imagine we soon will be able to talk about it?

Yes that is correct. On the new plan all foods that are free on green and are free on red are free together. So you can have cottage pie with mashed potato - free, spagetti bolognaise - free, fish and rice with peas - free, bacon eggs and beans - free!

You get only 1 healthy xtra A and only 1 healthy extra B - which should be no hardship now cause most of the things other than your cereals and breads and oil are now free foods.

Any syns you have are counted at the lower amount - ie if something is 5 syns on green but 30 syns on red - you would count it as 5 syns!

Sounds brilliant doesn't it?

Marion

We can not be sure this is true.

What has happened is that our beloved thread was closed (deleted). Another forum had the same thing happen.

My (limited) understanding is whilst we might logically think we can discuss it, SW are trying to keep the details of this plan under wraps, probably until the new year.

To date - Every time the plan is explained by someone (who knows legitimately, and believes it OK to mention), the accompanying thread is closed.

Personally I wouldn't risk this thread closing too.

Thanks Angie - I will edit my post if you think that is why the last one got shut down Although it all feels a little Big Brotherish now!:rolleyes: - the walls have ears and all that!

If the new plan is in the latest mag (and I bought mine at last SW weigh-in) which is also out in the shops, I can't see how it's suddenly all top secret.

Maybe that's not the reason the thread was closed.:confused:

Yes - no-one really knows, but neither of the board guides did it, which might make one think that it was done by a 'higher source'

I am still looking forward to hearing about it officially in class in the new year.

Do you think the old thread will be reinstated when the new plan is made official? There is so much useful info in there that I refer to. I went to my subscribed threads and it had gone. I was paranoid that I had been deleted from subscribing for lurking and not having much to contribute!

I'm sorry everyone, that was me.

I wanted to delete one post - yes, the one about the new plan that's not available yet - I was using Google Chrome and I've found a few times recently that instead of just deleting a post I've deleted the whole thread!

I've undeleted it but locked it as it was quite long anyway, so feel free to carry on supporting on this one.

Good luck with the diets

Andrea
