My goodness me Louise, Im sorry to hear that. Gosh, hope you feel better and manage to lose some of the weight again. Sadly I put mine back on too and have to work it all out again.
So frustrating. Wish I could lose it and emotionally keep it off once and for all.

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

Oh Celest, I've been so sick the last 4 years and I had numerous operations (exactly 10) in 18 months time. I'm doing so much better, but I've gained almost all the weight back. I forgot my username and password for so long. I've logged in with my e-mail address. It is great to be back . I'm not the team leader anymore. Well you can't blame them now can you? I'll try to visit everyday. Have a great evening. Hugs. Louise.

Never regret anything in your life because at one time.... it was exactly what you wanted. Learn from your mistakes.

Yep it still exists, but goes quite for lengthy periods. Have not yet been able to figure out why? Would have thought South African group would have as much to talk about as any other group?

Hey everyone. This is the first time I've posted on this forum / team. I joined SparkPeople in May and I've stuck with it, I like that I can still eat a bit of chocolate while staying within my calories range LoL. Hope you have a lovely rest of the week. Take care and stay warm.

P.S. Anyone else get a little bit of snow today (that melted as soon as it touched the ground)?

Anyone else suffering awful weather? George has had 90mm rain overnight with 30kph winds ripping through along with major thunder and lightning. The pass between George and Oudtshoorn in shut due to snow. Amazing!

Port Elizabeth is flooded out. Most major roads are shut due to flooding and warnings for folks to stay indoors and dont drive if possible. My nephew had to return home and he took a spill as his bike hit a body of water. Luckily hes fine, just some damage to his bike.

Weather is crazy in SA at the moment. Snow in so many places, even though we are almost heading into spring.

hi all,

i'm trying hard not to hibernate this winter. been going to the gym, trying to eat well (but still warm) and all that good stuff. how about everyone else? keeping warm and keeping active?

i love the gym at the moment - it is EMPTY most of the time. of course i still have to fight the big muscle bound men for my space in the weight section, but it's WAY better than right after new years!!

Today I'm hot while sitting at my desk. but then I had a half hour walk to the office this morning. Got my cardio in on my way to work. lol. Know how you feel though. It is cold and even with the central heating on at the office during the day - at times it does not make a difference. Earlier this week we had it up at 30 degrees and you could not feel it. My problem with the winter is that I love eating, so I'm trying very hard not to give in to the cravings for nice warm stuff.
I had to take my 4 month old to the doctor this morning and while there I got on the scale seeing I don't have one at home. I'm back at my pre-pregnancy weight which is nice, but I really kind of hoped to have lost more. This kind of just got me more motivated to try harder though to loose weight.

I WILL see the change in me

i think my biggest difficulty with winter in this country is that i never get warm. okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration - obviously i'm warm during my zumba class, and in bed in the morning. it's just that in other (colder) countries, there is proper insulation, and central heating, and once you are inside it is WARM. here, it's just always cold. example - i have arrived at work as i write this and i came inside, switched on the heaters, and i'm sitting here at my desk with my coat still on.

my car showed -5 yesterday morning. It is extremely cold, and then I still have to take the kinds out in this cold weather. Hate having to take them out so early. I have started taking the steps at the stations, so that helps with the defrosting bit in the morning, but I just can't get up earlier at the moment in order to exercise. The boss has bought boxes of cup of soup for the office, so that seems to be lunch most of the time, even though I'm not a big fan of cup of soup.

Good luck to all for the rest of the week. Hopefully we'll have a break in this cold soon.

I WILL see the change in me

it is SO cold here in JHB at the moment. the cold front arrived, and now we are all freezing our butts off. i am SO not suited to winter here. i miss my insulation and central heating. but at least i've learned how to keep warm here, and i find losing weight in winter a bit easier than in summer - i can just live on soup for most meals! i make my own butternut soup and chicken soup, although i must say the soups from woolies are also very nice...

Moonstormer - I have now taken to wear takkies on the train, in order to climb the stairs. I generally try and take the stairs at Rhodesfield and then at Sandton the last ones going out of the building. On the escalators I also keep walking - up and down the stairs. Just need to get a bit more fit than I am at the moment, then want to start taking the last flight of stairs going up as well every day.
Celeste - Sorry to hear you're not well. I hope you recover soon. When you are ill, you need to take special care of yourself, especially when it comes to exercise. Rather take it easy till you fully recovered and then start again.

I WILL see the change in me

Great for you too......well I face new medical issues and have to replan my life around them. Such a "simple" thing can end up making a person so sick. I now have "lymes disease" a wonderful term for tick bite fever......but I feel so sick its pathetic. Of course lymes is not just tick bite fever, but advanced tick bite fever. None the less, I have a choice to make, keep getting sicker and sicker and sicker, or make some lifestyle changes and MEAN THEM.
It will have to be that for me because I truly hate being ill. I am not one of those people that enjoy all the attention. I like to just get about my business and do it with a smile. Lately I cant manage my business and Im in constant pain so smiling is another thing I am in short supply of.

hi all!

when i gautrain it, i usually take the escalators at sandton station, but i walk the whole time - never stop! not quite as much as taking the stairs the whole way down, but definitely makes a difference!

getting so cold now here in JHB - some evenings i don't want to go to the gym, until i remember that i will be warmer once i leave the house and start shaking my booty in zumba emoticon

Hi All

Celeste, I've been trying do climb the stairs at Sandton Station for the last week, but just not getting to it. Keep on blaming it on my heels I wear to work every day. Then today I saw a lady that climed on fleight of stairs, then took the escalator for the next set, and changed again. - in her high heels. - So tomorrow I will just have to! - no more excuses!!

I WILL see the change in me

oooh morning at the spa - how fantastic :) Lucky girl!

I am zooming off to work. The mist in Cape Town today is really thick. Hard to get up for work when it looks like it's still the middle of the night out there hehehehe.

I think I will survive though.

Wishing you all a FANTASTICAL day :)

I had a very nice Mother's Day :) My boys of 5 & 7 made me breakfast (with dad's help) so of course it was THEIR favourite - scrambled egg and baked beans on toast! Astually quite healthy when you think about it - and then we went to a lunch with all the Oumas and I am still trying to recover from that! The whole menu is about the length of my arm but suffice to say it included roti and curry with salad, sweet potato soup, roast lamb and chicken, roast potatoes, veggies and my boys made a sago pudding for the event...

Celest, I grew up with a few Celeste's around and even had one in my class in high school so everyone just calls me Lessie even though a couple of people have insisted on calling me Cell (and I don't know if I like that)

I can't remember what else I wanted to say! LOL so I'm off to get some walking done

Happy Sparking!

These names can be confusing. I also have an E at the end, but when I tried using it, sparks said there already was one like that...now I know who it is. emoticon
When I was growing up I was the only Celeste' around. Now as an adult I find the name everywhere.

Glad you got some exercise Ilse - forced or not. LOL

I have done NO exercise today because I woke up with a cold. emoticon

I'm going to take care of myself for the weekend so this cold disappear asap.

Hi Celeste

emoticon I spelled your name wrong.

Oversleapt hectically today, but wasn't to late. I Take the Gautrain to work everyday, and today at Sandton Station two of the escalators weren't working, so we were forced to take the steps (over 100 in all) So today I was forced to do my cardio excersice - had no choice in the matter. also realised how unfit I am, halfway throught the second fleight of stairs, I thought my legs are gonna give in under me. emoticon Well that has now made me more determined to loose weight and get fit. emoticon

I WILL see the change in me

Hi Ilse and Tamzin!

Yes it is confusing sometimes Celest but I am Celeste with the E so maybe that helps...

My dinner was Butter Chicken curry and very nice and not too OTT. I am in Cape Town again. Recently relocated from JHB.

At work a little early today so I'm gonna go for a walk around town later.

Happy Friday!

Celeste
Keep moving!

emoticon that was confusing because I had friends over to dinner last night also.
Not that common a name, but two here....we'll get through it.
I am definitely eating healthy after the terrible weekends food intake. Lasts night dinner was a raging success. I made hake steaks with a colorful salad and a baked potato. Dessert was a board of fruit pieces with some creme fraîche in a small bowl in the center.
Went down very well and not a single piece of white bread anywhere or red meat. Yay

It is funny if you think about it though. I havent heard from him again, maybe he took me seriously when I said "to hell with me paying that kind of money over".
At least I am getting 2 days weekend away for free. Someone I study the bible with has a guest farm with 5 chalets and she has invited my husband and I, my sister and her husband and the two of them to go away together. I am SO looking forward to the quiet, tranquility of a farm in the karoo.

Celest how did things go with the asurence guy? I know I laugh last night, the picture in my mind was very laughable, but I also know how frustrated things like this can be. So unfair.

Have a wonderful Friday everyone.

I agree. Many years ago I was with weigh less and our group leader used to say "weigh in, its either better than you thought, or the truth that must be repaired...but you'll never know till you weigh in."

Today its hump day....back in the day it was klein naweek.

I always say...no matter what, Keep Sparking!
The past few years have been hectic on a worldwide scale. It's more important to keep moving than to get upset about setbacks.
I finally got back onto a scale last weekend and updated my tracker. After being unable to Spark for a few months, I expected major fail but the damage wasn'y too bad.
One of the quizzes that I did "confirmed" that I am not ready to get back into the full swing of things but I am using this time to slowly but surely reintroduce healthier habits.
Have an awesome Hump Day peeps!

Celeste
Keep moving!

Hi Celest
It's good to see you are still here... How are you?

Yea the phonelines is a problem, but let's enjoy while they are still availible. There were talks that they are NOT going to put them back. Luckily for us, we have a jail on this side of the town and they need the lines, so if it was not for the jail I think it would take alot longer.

Anyway I seeing forward to meet them all.

Have a nice day Celest, oh it's nice to be back..

Hannelie

Well hello there Hannelie....GREAT to have you back. LOL nothing much new here, you know how slow the SA team page is....but we have a few new people here and they are quite chatty. So the future of the SA team page is looking good after all.
What a nightmare your telephone lines being stolen. We have just had fibre optic cables laid throughout our town but luckily my husbands internet company only works with wireless...they cant steal that.

Hi Everyone
It's a halo after along time. Our telephone lines was stolen in our town. It's bad because we run our own business from home. No emails, no faxes, no SparkPeople....
Anyway we are back online and to continue the excited journey of SP

What is new? Please update me...

Happy Wednesday!

A son asked his mother the following question:

' Mom, why are wedding dresses white? '

The mother looks at her son and replies:

' Son, this shows your friends and relatives
that your bride is pure.'

The son thanks his Mom and goes off to
double-check this with his father.

' Dad why are wedding dresses white? '

The father looks at his son in surprise and says:
'Son, all household appliances come in white.'

Hi All yes i think winter is setting in here in zululand, lovely cool weather this is really the nicest time of the year April and May. i really feel sorry for added expense of the tolls in Geuteng it must really be a drain on the people that cannot afford it. hope you all have a great day and God Bless.
