I am new!! Hi everyone!

Was just looking around for some information. I saw how helpful and supportive everyone is, I couldn't resist but to join.

I started the plan yesterday and for the first time, i am 100% determined to follow through with my dieting / weight-loss.

A little about myself. I am 6'1, weighed in on Friday at 244lbs. I didn't consider myself obese, but the Dr said I was....My ultimate goal is to be around 220lbs, but the Dr. said I need to be at 200lbs. I am 33 years old. With my new job and everything else that's happening, probably age also, I've noticed that I am starting to carry a lot of stomach fat. I am a diabetic, was diagnosed about 4 years ago, but it's under control. Of course, everything else that comes along with being a diabetic, I have.

I think I will be asking a lot of questions, so please bare with me!

I read on one of the stickys that I need to take the calcium supplement, but I was never made aware of this when I went to the Dr. What's the purpose?

I have also noticed that my urine is BRIGHT yellow, is this due to the shots?

I have the headaches that everyone's talking about, started late last night and still got it. Can I take something for it?

I've never really paid as much attention to food labels as I have in the last two days. There's a lot of food that have 1 or 2 carbs in them, is this OK for the first week? For example, Crystal Light, it has 1 card, will this work negatively?

I am a diabetic, what should I watch out for? I just read that I need to monitor my blood sugar real closesly. This makes me a little uneasy.
