Hi there from Cape Town! I agree wholeheartedly with everything SADOLPHIN has said - but add to this that accountability to us in some form thru Teams or Message Boards is going to encourage you to be accountable to yourself too. If I have written something on here that I intend to do there is no way that I will avoid it unless my house is on fire or something else equally radical is going on!
Get yourself up and running with a SparkPage that we can all see - it doesn't have to be fancy - just get started with a colour background and a little bit of info about yourself - so that we can communicate and see how you are getting on
Wishing you strength and determination with your journey to a healthy and fit lifestyle
Have fun, too!

Hiya and welcome! You are right, this website is awesome and it makes you WANT to stick to your goals. There is also so much support on this site, from all parts of the world! Where abouts in South Africa are you from? I am originally from Cape Town but moved away about 8 years ago and currently living in Ireland although I still have family and friends out that way... I used to be on the same injection and also picked up weight. The only suggestion I could give you is try to get as much exercise in as you can without hurting yourself and track everything that passes your lips! You will be amazed at the changes that you can make once you actually see what you eating! Feel free to mail me anytime you have questions or just wanna chat!

Hi there, I am desperately trying to loose weight. I found this awesome website that is great motivation to stick to your goals!! I have endometerosis and the DR has put me on the depo injection with the hope that it shrinks the endo, but so far the injection has only made me put on weight! I have never had trouble loosing weight in the past, after having my two daughters. But I am struggling to loose the weight now and at times find it very disheartening. I am just taking it one day at a time and this website is really encouraging and gives great tips. Hope you all have a fabulous day :-)
