It's going to be a schlep for me too. I live 4hrs away, but as you say, at least once!!!

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

Take a look at the Message Board about a possible meet & greet for the team members - we are looking at meeting at N1 City during Jan & maybe monthly for coffee & chat. N1 City cos equal drive from Newlands, Tygervalley & Table View - bit more of a schlep for you tho of course

It could be fun - at least try it once!?
Good luck!

U mean they have power out that way??? Oh yeah - not far from Koeberg as crows fly!

Thank you EVERYONE for your help and support. And for reminding me that Rome wasn't built in a day - take a baby step day for day.

I live near Malmesbury (about an hour from Cape Town, for those who don't know). And yes, internet hit us too.... hahaha

Hey Cindy,

You can do this. Don't give up, just keep on going no matter what and you will be victorious.

God Bless.

Don't be scared - we don't bite! At least, most of us don't :)) hehe-haha
Have a look around at the pages, teams and message boards and see what motivates you. If you change your mind about any, it's easy to move on to another interest group.

Just put yourself in the picture - make yourself your priority - and more especially your health. You can be your own best friend but there's plenty of us here and not only on the SA team

Good luck - and strength - baby steps!

Hi there. Yup there are quite a few of us. Where in good old SA are you? I am in George near Cape Town.
You can do this. It's a matter of short term discipline. Just through one meal a day. Let the next meal become the next goal. Small OBVIOUSLY REACHABLE goals will see you at your goal weight within one year. That's my plan anyway. Notice I said PLAN not HOPE.

Hi, welcome to SP and the SA team!
My advice to you is that no matter what happens, get back on the wagon asap and just do it. Never give up.
Make lots of friend here that you can stay accountable to, and use the site to its fullest.
You can do it!!

Hey Cindy,
As long as you log into SP regularly and track all your goodies you will do just fine ;) My problem is I just do not keep at it and internet access has been a major problem the last couple of months.
Luckily now it is sorted out and I have my support back!

Be yourself, nobody else is better qualified.

Can't believe there's so many South African's on this site!
