Hi Sheila - thanks so much for your message. Think you're right about the local fresh produce. I just have to stop eating Doritos at 9 o'clock at night!!! Thanks again.

Love & hugs

Hi there - welcome

I am in Cape Town - I don't bother with the US recipes - I use all fresh produce and where I use local yoghurt etc I enter the package info re nutrients - I think it is far healthier to use clean stuff than all the pre-packed good - but that's just in my humble opinion (IMHO)

You will probably find a few teams where you can link up with parents facing similar challenges to your own.

I quit smoking over 9 years ago and was at gym at the time - and I focussed on not adding weight and not eating as a substitute. Well done with the 5 months and deciding to come onto Spark - you will find support - you just have to find your own niche, participate where you want to and also listen to your own common sense.

Take a look at my Spark Page, the teams I belong to and the comments that various friends make to my blogs etc - you might find like-minded people amongst them :D

Best wishes
Sheila

Hi, I've just joined this site so am a bit of a novice with posting etc. Looks great tho. Am located in the Natal Midlands. Am already certain I'll struggle to get some of the ingredients on the recipes. Has anyone else struggled? If so, what do you do? Are you all using the recipes from this site or your own???
I have 2 children (one of them is autistic) and am a bookshop owner and pre-school teacher.
I stopped smoking 5 months ago (yay for me!) and have subsequently put on around 7kgs!!! Hence my being here. Please keep in touch as I'll need all the support I can get!

Good to be here!

Love & hugs
