    Hi there,
    I am British living in The Gambia, West Africa.
    I have joined BodyOptermise which is the on-line version of slimming world for people living overseas.
    I am unable to get many of the products you can get, but we do have a Tesco delivery once a week. costs a fortune but he ho!
    I hope to give and get lots of support here at this forum.
    sending some sunshine to those in colder climes

    Hello Goldentouch.
    Youre a long way from home. I used to live in Ivory Coast many moons ago. I miss the heat but not the humidity.
    Welcome, you'll get lots of support here.

    came on holiday 13 years ago, went home,came back and stayed. am now bringing up a Gambian child as my daughter. She was 2 when she came to me and is now 11. A good enough reason to stay i think!!
