    I don't think ready meals are ever very good Bethany, maybe just get some for the freezer for emergencies??? I always prefer something freshly prepared - no artificial wotsits then!!

    Seconded. Although for an emergancy when the alternative would be something with mega points they are certainly edible! LOL Can I suggest the Thia Chicken or Beef Hotpot as they arnt too bad. Hope your first meeting goes well. :) Let us know how you get on:D

    Hi Bethany,

    I would completley agree with Karen - ready meals are'nt great regarding additives etc.. but to be honest I LOVE them - it depends how much time you have on your hands really - I dont have much, I love the ocean pie (3 1/2 points)... so quick and easy. I would generally have it with half a can of weight watchers spaghetti and about 4 fishfingers (lovely meal totaling 9 points) its really up to yourself though.. we're all different

    Best of luck chick xx :)

    Hi guys.

    I'm on CD and have to say that reading this thread just made me very hungry!

    Weight loss programmes have the same effect - they all feature so much FOOD. When Gillian Mckeith's show displays the table spread with one week's goodies we're supposed to go, ugh, no! How disgusting. I look at the yummy stuff and think, mmm. Okay, the quantities might be a bit over the top, but the actual food?

    Sigh.

    G McK would do my head in on a daily basis. The way she talks to people! I know it's partly a showbiz/image thing but she is way too bossy.

    Good luck!

    Hi Bethany,

    Yep the lasagne is fine, quite a small portion though :) The scales are well worth the money, I bought some and I use then all the time. Good luck with the points, remember to use your points by the end of the week because under using can actually slow your weight loss down, due to your metabolism slowing down. xx

    I dont particularly like WW meals I dont buy them. I much prefer Tescos Healthy Option Range. They taste better and have much better sized portions AND the WW points are on the back of the packet :)

    Still having 6.5 points at this time of evening is great, youll be able to have something nice this evening too :)

    If the 6.5 you have left takes you to your total for the day you can eat them all tonight.

    6.5 gives you loads of options, wine and crisps, chocolate, a sandwich... loads :) Or you can save a few if you want something like a take away at the weekend. Remember dont save any more than 4 so you need to have at least 2.5 more before bedtime.

    CAN I JUST SAY -

    the fresh tikka curry from the fridges are better then frozon ones - you can freeze them to - which is more money but loads more in it and better!

    and w.w derrest are very good aswell! x

    Trust me to be different, but...

    I LOVE the ww meals! Ooh and the desserts are yummy. So easy and low in points- I doubt I could make a meal for only 3 points myself!!

    Give them a whirl and decide for yourself x

    Hi Fiona
    I also like the ww deserts they are really low in points so you could have a nice desert and They also do ww choc eclairs and profitoroles and I also like their cakes too the choc brownies are lovely for only 2 points really chocolatey but for the ready meals i might give one or 2 a try and see what i think
    Also ww oven chips are nice does ww do a vanilla ice cream
    Thanks again

    I'd second that! Tesco does a really good range of healthy living ready meals, and I love them!

    I don't have them very often anymore because I'm home all day with the baby so I try and cook a meal every evening now (don't think OH would be very impressed if he came home from a hard day at work to just a ready meal - not when I've been home all day, hehe), but we do quite often have one of their chicken tandoori masalas with rice (6.5 points) with a few pappadoms at the weekend...yum!

    I do like the ww ocean pie though, it's the one ww meal I do buy when I see it (they don't do them at Tesco.com anymore - or at least not in my area :( ).

    I refuse to buy the new ww ready meals, because they are far to expensive for what they are! The older meals are usually a bit cheaper, but the new ones are just a rip off (in my opinion).
