Anyone living in Abu Dhabi??

If you are living in Abu Dhabi or the surrounding area, and want to become workout/support buddies, please let me know.

For what it's worth, I've been there. Beautiful part of the world. I love Dubai as well. It's just too hot for me during the summer months, I went in march and july. March was nice weather but when I went back in July i nearly had a heat stroke. I then realized why they only give you a little bit of soda for meals. (in my high carb days)

Terrible stuff!! I was glad we spent the whole day at Atlantis both times lol! In July it was 120 in the shade. Miserable. Have you got to check out Atlantis yet? If not before you leave there you should go. We had the best time!

Nope, I havent been to Atlantis...probably will not make it there. Money is tight and with us leaving in July I dont think we could swing it. No problem. I have seen commercials and my friend's postings of the place and it does look amazing. Perhaps we will get lucky and get a chance to go If not, no biggie...I am LEAVING in July!

Eyma! I wont hold it against you for liking Dubai No worries. I would love having someone a little closer to chat with as well. It would be nice having another set of eyes to locate things that could be difficult to find over here. I am in AD, and sorry to say I do not travel around very much. My hubby is going through cancer/chemo treatments and it makes doing so kind of difficult.

Leaving in July is better than going to Atlantis! I longed for America the whole I was over there. Nothing compares to Dubai's beauty though, other than American soil That's just me being American though

Sorry to hear about your DH, TT - I wish him a speedy recovery. Not sure how I can private message you, I tried and wasn't able to, I wanted to send you my email address. Even though I have supportive friends, I find weight loss a lonely process (and I guess I can only bore them so much with the nitty gritty details of my program...) so I'm also happy to have a buddy close by!

I just saw this post! I have been living in Abu Dhabi for about 18 years! I'm actually out in Khalifa B now, but I know lots of people here who work out. I see you are too new here at LCF to have the PM option.

I just moved to Abu Dhabi

Hello, I just moved to Abu Dhabi from Dallas Texas. We are moving to Kalifia B. I would love to join a support group and find out where to shop to find low carb products. Thus far, it has been very hard for me to find the same things we had back in the States and I love to Bake Lo-Carb. Let me know, if you have any ideas of where to start. I am also new to this board. I have read it a lot, but never joined before, so as a newbie, if you have any tips...... I would love advice.
Thanks!!
Regay
