    I'm New Here!

    Hi there,
    I'm joining slimming world tomorrow on a referral scheme from my doctor. Firstly, what do you get when joining slimming world? (meaning books etc.) Would I be able to find out everything I need to know on here and on the slimming world website or do people recommend I actually buy the syn books?
    thanks in advance.

    When I joined online I found the booklets to be very informative and have never felt the need to buy the shopping guide/syn book thingy. I think it depends upon how much pre packed stuff you find yourself eating. There is always the online syns directory you will have access to as a member. I suppose the books are good to have in your bag for shopping.

    Good luck with your weightloss! I don't think you'll need extra books, they may come in handy while out shopping

    Will be taking part in the Breast Cancer Care pink ribbon walk in 2015

    Good luck to you, I don't use the books, personally it's quicker and easier for me to google 'syns in...' And 9/10 the answer is right here on minimins lol x
