Welcome to sparks Ally, you are GOING to LOVE IT here. There are many many teams you can join, one of my favorites is the EE (emotional eating) team. The conversations are upbeat and helpful. Sometimes they shoot straight from the hip, sometimes a little softer.
Could I recommend that you update your spark page, add a few photos that way we know who we are chatting to. Cant wait for you to see your results in 2011.
Congrats on your starting point.

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

Hi there Ally
Welcome to Spark - I'm sure you'll find loads of support and not only from the SouthAfrican team. There's many people on here who have similar difficulties and they can be a great help. Have a look around and join in - take one step at a time and eventually you'll find that you have created new habits - like drinking litre upon litre of water, clearing simple carbs out of your eating plan, quitting the added sugars and moving more and intentionally. These baby steps can get you quite far before you have to step it up

Let me know if I can help in any specific way

enjoy your journey to health and fitness

Hello! :)

I am 33 years old, and reside in Jo'burg. I have joined here in the hope of finding some support from other South Africans! I need to lose approximately 30kg. I have PCOS and am insulin resistant. I would very much like to have a baby one day, and need to get my PCOS under control first.
I would really like to start 2011 off in a good way - that's why I joined Spark People. I feel very alone most of the time and could do with a friend or two. :)
Thank you, Alice
