Weekly Syns

Hi guys, just curious:

I know syns are supposed to be daily.

However when I did slimming world last time I used to count mine weekly, so I'd do 105 and just count throughout the week. Because I can go without any for a few days fairly easily, but if I've got plans of the weekend that involve eating out/drinking out, it worked for me.

Now this did work for me well, although I know it's probably different for everyone.

I was just wondering if anyone else did a weekly sun count?

I personally don't do a weekly count as I think this would lead to me making very bad choices, and I don't really drink or eat out much, so I'm okay there.

I don't see why it shouldn't work though, and will certainly think about doing it if I do have any weeks where I know eating out will be happening

I don't set out to do Syns weekly but I do take an average syn count for the week to smooth over any days I go over. Sometimes if I know I'm going out on the weekend I will deliberately under-cut a few syns a day and save them up

I count them daily, but overall I do a weekly syn count. I like to know what I've used across the week, mostly because then I know if I have plans at the weekend, how many I have left for whatever it is.
It's easier for me to remember that I've used 40 syns by Friday, rather than 'I used 10 on Monday, 6 on Tuesday, 12 on Wednesday etc.'

I usually do better counting my syns weekly rather than daily as if I go over one day it triggers a binge, but doing it weekly means I can go over one day and under another and it averages out.

Just a quick question on syns...
Does everyone write them down ?

Yes. Always.

When you stop writing them down, that's when you 'forget' about that bag of Quavers you had after your lunch, or the little bar of chocolate that you'd eaten, and then end up eating something that sends your good intentions squiffy.

It's so much easier to lose track of what you've eaten, even the free stuff, if you don't write it down. That's why I've got a food diary on here (and on the SW website) so I know exactly where my syns have gone during the week, and I don't end up completely off track.
