Hi Moonstormer :) Hope you are loving the life in SA?! I can tell you that as someone with very little motivation of my own, this site has provided me the unique opportunity to interact with people who are going through the same problems and can offer brilliant advice to me. You will love being part of this community :)
Welcome to Spark People! I am also relatively new to Spark People, but I have found that the advise and support go a long way in helping me stick to my diet and exercise...I think of it as a support system when I need one! Everyone has their own successes and/or failures, and great advice. All the best in your journey and lots of support, from Namibia!

Hi from the Garden Route in the Western Cape. Update your page with a photo or two, it makes getting to you more personal. This is a long journey, and doesnt have to be sad and lonely. Look forward to sharing interesting recipes and lifes experiences with you.
I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.
i'm relatively new to sparkpeople. i finally set up my profile and joined teams...
i am from new york but got my ba and ma in the netherlands. while studying, i met a wonderful south african man and agreed to follow him back to south africa. we live in joburg (northing suburbs) and are very happy together. so happy that i've gained 'love weight' as my mother puts it. the combination of a healthy, happy relationship and the richness of south african food has put many a kilo onto my stomach, hips and thighs.
i've been working on losing the weight and decided that maybe sparkpeople is a good place to help with the motivation, accountability and small tips/tricks.
