Have just read your other post, so have come to check out your diary.
I know the WW soups are quite low syns anyway, but personally i would prefer to have a homemade soup, especially made with superfree veggies in, so a free lunch and super healthy and is getting a good amount of superfree in to you. could help boost the losses.

Stick with it, you can do it :)

I agree and my personal fave is home made butternut squash and red pepper. I just find it so hard to find time to cook ahead with a full time job, a family and a husband who does very little, football matches for my son at the weekend (he needs driving around the North West of England for these matches). Sorry moan over, you're right, but I don't have one prepared today :)

I work full time too, i only get one day off a week (sunday) and a couple of hours a afternoon during the week, but then back to work till 8.30pm.
Planning is the key, and planning the meals to not only fit in with the diet but also your timetable. So on days when i am late, i decide upon a evening meal that can be made in advance or is a quick thing (pasta maybe)
Soups could easily be knocked up at the same time as your cooking your evening meal?? or set aside a hour at the weekend to batch cook a load and freeze them, just need to defrost then the night before.
Other ideas for lunchs is to purposely overcook your evening meal, so there IS leftovers for lunch. a lot of things could then be frozen too in portion sizes for lunchs.

Most people lead full and busy lives these days, but with some good planning and organisation of time etc everything is possible :)
