    I think in South Africa we are lucky. Halloween is a novelty that most people don't do, so no temptation there. Thanksgiving is also non-existent. The only food related day we have that no one else does is National Braai Day. I can't remember what the actual day is, possibly heritage day? I don't know. But we don't really need an excuse to braai - heck, every weekend is braai day

    Hi. I’m 46 and have been on and off MFP for at least 10 years. I’m at my highest non-pregnant weight now (195) after losing 30 pounds last year. That weight loss was stress related and not healthy, but I really want it back! I’m committed to doing it right and sticking to it, and am joining the community in hopes of finding others who will keep me accountable. Feel free to add me and I will do the same for you!

    Happy Halloween! I'm not buying candy, not handing out candy. Think I'm going to be hiding at the gym because I won't even be able to walk the neighborhood like I usually do in the evening. Good luck to you all! Stay strong.

    Welcome!! Good job losing 30#! That's awesome!! We are about the same weight now. Sadly this isn't my highest weight. But it's not going to be my lowest either!! Good luck!!

    I understand the stress eating. I'm in that boat now but it's time to take control, it can be done. Great job on losing 30 pounds. Your definitely determined. I hope I can get there too. I just started my journey. I have a long way to go. I have to lose 130 pounds. Take Care.

    Hello everyone. Experienced longtimer that was shelved for a while simply restarting. Though I am rather new to MFP, I am liking it so far.
