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.


Is so doing it this time
Hiya Gillybeans and welcome:welcome: This place is totally great with loads of support and advise. I have just started on SW as well, and prefer it to any other plan I've followed. Good luck for Tuesday, it will be a good way of getting to know people in the area as well :) Let us know how you get on. Px

Hello can i ask what diabetes type you have?? im diabetic aswell (type 1) and ive heard slimming world is the best (healthiest) weight loss plan a diabetic can do :D so good luck with it.
Good luck! You'll be fine :D xxxx
welcome to the forum, i was new to my area when i joined sw now its great to go and havea good natter with people, gets me out the house lol. stick at it its a great plan
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!
