I live in North Florida, I usually receive my box within 5 working days from when I order. My shipment comes from PA so yours may arrive sooner..
I too am on the women's diabetic plan. For my tastes, and everyone has different tastes, I find I like more of the dinner choices than the lunches. Some of my favorites per meal are:.
Breakfast: apple cinnamon oatmeal, any of the scones, and the blue-berry muffins..
Lunch: bean and ham soup, chicken noodle soup, cheesy homestyle potatoes, trail mix bar, and any of the pastas..
Dinner: Well, I haven't found one I didn't like more than others except for the chili..
Desserts: I simply love the chocolatey nougat bar with peanuts (just like a snickers), and the buffalo pretzels are my favorites..
Try different things each month until you find your favs. That is the beauty of this plan it gives you the oppurtunity to pick and choose..
Good luck with your weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey..

Thanks for all the input on the food! I will definitely take your suggestions! How are things in N Florida?..
Kris, I just started the program today. I got my first shipment in 5 days. What was suggested to me, and what I did, was to take a day or two when you get your shipment to thoroughly read the materials. Get in mind what you need to eat and when. Make a shopping list for add-ins (veggies, etc) and go shopping. Read some of the success stories and the Forums.
I feel very positive, instead of dreading it like I did w/ past diets. Hope this helps!.
Maria, I'm also in North Florida, near Tallahassee. Small world!..
I live in Tallahassee. It is a small world. Where are you from?.
Besides the weather (hot, humid and rainy) and students are back (traffic will be a nightmare) everything is well. We have two major universities here, one community college and to make things even better, public school starts Monday..
Don't get me wrong, I love kids (don't have any of my own) and I enjoy the activities that the universities bring; it is just the traffic the first month until everyone gets used to their new surroundings..
How's the Buffalo area?.
Hi Kris! I live in the Buffalo area too, and I can tell you that it took 8 days. Which is crazy, because the shipment originates in Pennsylvania. I could have driven there and back in less than 8 hours..
I'm not on the Diabetic plan, but there are a few foods I will NOT eat again - the Sweet and Sour Chicken for one. Yuk! So far I have liked all of the lunches. I'm not real crazy about the breakfast cereals. I miss my Life cereal...
Welcome Aboard. I live in Florida as well. Central Florida, Tampa area..
Good luck and looking forward to getting healthy with all of you...
