    hello and welcome, i am only on my second week at slimming world, at least you seem to have an idea about it if you have your shopping list already done. i weigh in on a tuesday and it took till the thursday to start to get my head round the plan.
    i lost 6 1/2 lbs my first week which really surprised me.

    Good luck!

    There's loads of info in loads of places - the Slimming World website (you'll get the required password at your group) also has specific info for diabetics and I think I remember a woman in my group getting a specific leaflet from the consultant about her diabetes.

    Also, this forum has loads of people who have been doing the plan successfully for ages and have lost lots of weight, so they are always handy when you have a question!

    The diet seems a bit weird at first - free foods that are different on different days, two types of 'heathy extras' and a whole ream of syns that have different values. But don't be overwhelmed, it really is straightforward when you get used to it!

    If you've any questions, just pop on here and ask - that's what I did! And it was very helpful!

    Good luck!
