    I have given up for the night. I have reached SP frozen peas, but will start from peeled plum tomatoes as soon as I start again. I have yet to do Tomato & Onion Pasta Sauce and to put as T best, M less so (price adjustment upwards due to lower weight) and S and W N/A so not best as comp. vs T should give 10%.

    See you later.
    M list - posts 22772-3 (page 570 on 40 posts).
    Buy in M/Tvs M - post 22982 (page 575 on 40 posts).
    SP list - now page 548, posts 21900-21903.
    For my reference: was previously page 535 (21371).

    Going to a group I always went to before the B.C..


    We're off to walk the dog I'll reply properly later...... what do you use your syns on.........do you measure your oats, bread etc, how do you make your garlic mushrooms, how many bananas do you eat and do you have grapes they are a few of the things I avoid and the hi fi bars are you having them as a he or as extra syns?

    Good morning everyone x. Di I Use my hi fi bars as syns, measure my oats 40gm, only two slices of medium whole meal a day, if I have eggs & beans on toast on the days I don't have overnight oats, don't really eat grapes, I only chop garlic up & add to mushroom when cooking in a spray of spray light, I don't have extra syns, hardly eaten yesterday, have a stomache ulcer playing up as I'd taken some tablets with naproxen in, silly me! felt a little sticky, but then pinched my sons fun size bar flake, the liccle ones you get in the pack, was only small, but I've had only one hi if bar today, so they counted as syns xxx. But I don't usually eat chocolate at all since I've been on SW! My eldest daughter can't believe I've kept to it & been so good since July, not even recieved my stone sticker as yet! . Xx

    Firstly 13lb is a lot of weight to have lost and kept off so you shoukd be very proud of yourself for that however it is so annoying staying the same.
    I try to avoid bread completely, what size loaf are your two slices from 400g or 800g? Could you instead have bacon, egg and tomatoes and leave the bread out altogether?
    I don't have any syns in the week unless I have gravy but save mine for wine at the weekend 28 syns for a bottle of Sauv blanc x 3, do you drink alcohol and if so do you know the syn value?
    Maybe if you're not consuming enough food your body is clinging onto what you do eat......not sure as never have that problem I can always eat
    How many syns do you allow yourself per day? If the hi fi bar was three, four for the flake did you have anything else....what type of milk do you use, do you drink tea or coffee and how many per day as bubbs says maybe you're not drinking enough fluids.
    I'll see what else I can think of.....what day is weigh in day for you.....mines today but after the week I've had plus the wedding I'm expecting about 3lb on....I hate it when that happens but hey ho.
