Good Luck on this journey! I know that it takes support from everyone, sometimes it is annoying because they can be too helpful! emoticon I wonder why I need a calorie counter when I have my family...?

Heila - good idea - coffee would be great!
DD2 is off up the Garden Route next week with her fiance who arrives this Friday. Next week some time would suit me perfectly!

Happy to come out to Northern Suburbs or Table View - just let me know where and when - so long as it's after gym time :) Can be there +/- 11.00/11.30

Hello Dianne!
Welcome to the team! Spark is Awesome, you just need to learn to make it work for you.
Why don't you think of something that we can talk about. Anything that tickles you are new research about weightloss, whatever.
Then you know how to do it, we love chatting but are a bit leaderless at the moment, it seems.
Best wishes from the Lowveld, we are shivering here too. It is supposed to be the subtropics- we have been seeing FROST. Not normal. May it rain well in
2011
Glad it is raining over there Celest, I check your weather every night, for you and for my buddy who lives on a farm in Graaff Reinet.
Heila and Celest! You are making us really jealous. Wish we could join you for tea.
Love you all

Up to now I've not needed the buddy system what-so-ever. Been a real going concern, so I can only tell you after a week or so.
I'm determined to get to my goal or closest to my goal by the end of October, so I've made a fresh start today and done well with it (buddy or no buddy).
My buddy will hopefully work together as a team, but only time will tell. Glad you've got your fiance' that will be your buddy.

Hey Celest! :-)

I'm in Cape Town so we're both along the beautiful Garden Route.

I am so glad you guys have some rain heading your way - know it's been a bit rough with the dry spell you guys have been experiencing.

I am so glad you're back on board today. I've been having the same problem (winter makes it difficult because of the "hibernation syndrome"). So well done - keep going strong!! emoticon

I've also decided today that it's time to get back on board...but in baby steps. My fiancé have decided to pledge a promise to each other for this week...no junk food at all - Monday to Friday. We'll renew the promise weekly - have breakfast, have home-cooked healthy lunch and a very light supper (Provitas). Using the nutrition tracker here on the SP site has been helping tremendously lately! emoticon

How's the buddy system been working out for you? emoticon

Chat soon

Good for you. I did too, but admittedly I have been having some trouble sticking to my good routine eating and exercise of late....but I started today and have utilized the buddy system to get myself started again.
Which part of SA are you in...I'm in George which is between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Its pretty ccccold here right now, the temp has dropped to 7degrees and rain expected....YAY cos we are still in a serious drought situation despite the dam level going up from 17 to 22. Sadly 22 is still critical.

I'm really getting into it now and it's awesome! All the tools you need to keep yourself on track are right here.
Keep going with your goals emoticon - I'll keep sweating toward mine emoticon
