Ok so my local group is on tonight, I've looked online and its says 5:30 and 7:30. I'm hoping the other half will be home from work for me to go over at 7:30z I haven't called the women, can I just turn up?
I'm just imagining a room full that I walk into and get stared at and noone talk to me and I will feel like an idiot!! Lol.

Yes you can just turn up. You might not be the only one to start today either. But what happens at my group is that the lady running the group will sit down with new people and explain how it all works and show you the book etc while other ppl start trickling in and getting weighed and chatting etc. Only when everyone is done and the lady has explained everything does group as such start. You will not be ignored. You will then sit in the group and the lady will ask you to briefly introduce yourself and to tell what brought you here but you do that sitting down and only needs a sentence or two.
Good luck and let us know how it went and how you liked it please

Thanks for explaining, I really want to go but I'm also quite nervous! Need to just suck it up and go! Really hoping my partner gets home in time whilst I have it in my head I'm going!!!
Will I be weighed and measured today?

No measuring in my group! And you will only get weighed at the end of the group when you decide whether to join or not.

It went ok thanks, the earlier session has 53 members but the later one I went to has about 12 but only 6 stay so its quite nice.
The lady explained a bit about the books. I'm a little confused about the green, original and success express?
Which one should I follow and what are the differences?

I do extra easy and I think you should too as it is super super easy. As for success express that is just when instead of haivng your plate of 2/3 free food and 1/2 superfree, you have 2/3 superfree and 1/3 free. So say you had a meal of chicken with potatoes and a salad, you would have to make sure that the salad, which is superfree, is the bigger part of the meal 2/3 to 1/3. Lemme tell you right now that that is HARD! As free food is usually what you fill up on and to satisfy your hunger. But you could do it maybe for lunch with a big mixed leaf salad with tomatoes, cucumber and chicken strips.
If you have more question, I don't mind, Ill do my best to explain

Also if I cook at jacket potato with beans is that free?
Or is the potato a healthy choice?
I'm a little confused! I really hope I can get my head around this! Everyone said its super easy so maybe its just me lol!
