Hi Ronnie82,

I was wondering if you were aware of the Diabetes Research and Wellness community here on Healthunlocked? A link to that community is here:


They might be able to off you some support regarding the diabetes, or at least some suggestions about who might be able to offer you some supportive information? You could always google the other communities, to see if there's any other ones that might be helpful.

Regarding this community (Weight Loss NHS), the NHS Choices website is a really good resource, so maybe have a look through it. Also, on the weight loss side of things, do look at our Pinned posts area, top right-hand-side of the homepage, and in particular look at the Welcome Newbie post, and any other post that takes your interest there.

We're busy today with the Monday group weigh-in sessions, and a large number of people pop in for a weekly weigh, and support, so do also have a look at that, if you would like to weigh weekly alongside us - you'd be very welcome.

Lowcal :-)
