I'm going to check it out. I try to be posetive, like today I had to go to the commune and I woke up early, told myself that I'm not taking the metro I'm going to walk. Which I did, to and from, I really don't mind walking but my husband loves his car and if we have to go some where he always take the car.

I feel good I took that walk, going to do it again 2moro.

Well that had me chuckling. I can only imagine what it must be like in a foreign country. I spent just a mere 3 weeks in Dubai and that was hectic enough for me,learning to handle the heat and where I could go and not go etc because its a very Muslim country and has many rule which end in deportation if broken.
Yep those 15kgs came from committed dedication. I schooled myself to learn not to handle my eating like the "child" I used to be. It took 2 statements from a motivational speaker to do it for me. 1 was why do you behave like a child (regarding food) nobody wants to be a child, not even children...that's true ask any 12 yr old if they are a child or grown up?
2 was stop saying its so hard, every time you hear yrself you are reaffirming that it is indeed hard. Start inner pillars of strength for yourself which come from statements of positivity rather than negativity.
It works for me. Hope you find what works for you.
The course was called be-do-have. I did a blog on the 9th Nov 09 about it.

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

I lived in Sasolburg, yes I miss home very much and I'm hoping to come visit this year. Belgium is a beautiful country with many friendly people but not easy if you don't know the languages (French and Dutch), but where I am most people speak french and very very very very little english if any. Ducth I can try as it is almost like Afrikans so I'm not that bad,well that what they tell me.

Wow, 15kg in +/-3 month and here I am complain I can't loose even one. I just have to learn to displine myself and smack my hand when I open the fridge or go shoppng.

Hi there, where in SA did you live before moving to Belgium? Do you miss SA, or are you very happy where you are now? What's Belgium like? Ugh questions questions questions....that's me. Totally curious.

Hope you enjoy sparks as much as I have. I have lost 15kgs since Nov 09 and plan on making this year count for me.

Hi all! I was born and raised in South Africa but I'm now living in Belgium. I'm a mother of three and joined SP to get support as I am trying to loose weight. Good to see that my fellow South Africans are also here. emoticon
