Hi Gaby Happy Christmas firstly and welcome aboard this team
I'm also in Cape Town - Southern Subs - and have made a few local friends - some in Table View and Durbanville and also have a Cyber Energy Buddy who attends a different gym to me. We keep each other accountable by chatting online to each other about our daily workouts - but not only on the fitness level - we also use this as a way to keep ahead of that old problem Procrastination!
anyway - have a look around some of the Spark Pages of the South African friends and drop us a line for a chat or ask anything you like - if we can, we will help
Good luck with your journey to health and fitness - and start now - don't wait till 1/1/11!

I'm not new to Spark but I've been lurking on this group for quite a while and doing sweet nothing.
So I thought I should at least introduce myself. I'm Gaby and I live in Cape Town and I need to lose weight super bad. I used to maintain a really good weight then I got into the senior highschool years and the stress and other stuff really didn't help. So now I'm sort of back to square one trying to get rid of the chubby cheeks and the doughnut area round my belly button ;)
It'd be great to get talking to people close to home for motivation, inspiration and other nice things .
