Thursday, April 22, 2010

first i just have to say how great it is to be back,i have really missed spark people and all the people here.it is like a addiction.the reason i havenīt been around is that my soon to be 17month old(in a few days)broke my computer.as if he was superman he tipped over the computer so it fell with a big bang and no more computer.we managed to buy a new second hand computer so here i am back on line again.just wished we could afford to have got it sooner.never mind i have it now.i caught the childrens chest infection so i am now also on antibiotics.ayman is still ill but zakariya is better and so is ayyub.on the plus side it looks like my husband might have a new job in a couple of weeks it is not 100% but fingers crossed.re my exercise i havenīt been doing it as often as i normally do as i have been feeling too ill but i have been forcing myself to do it twice a week at least.thatīs about it i suppose,not that exciting.havenīt weighed myself this week as i didnīt feel like it but i think i have stayed the same.tomorrow is weigh day anyway so i will know soon enough.anyway my spark frienda take care.it is great to be back.

    I do hope you are feeling better now. Sorry about the computer. Can just picture the lil one acting out as Superman and really not intending to damage the computer. Glad you were able to get another one and are back online. YOU HAVE BEEN MISSED!

    Yay! Glad you are back. I had a little giggle about the Superman cause I can imagine this little guy jumping and having fun in his role playing. Of course, he didn't end with a superhero result but the innocence of his actions still brings a smile to my face.
Inshallah you are feeling better and I'm glad you are able to reconnect. Have a great weekend!

thought it was time to make time for another blog.

Sunday, April 11, 2010

so here it is.i am tired as all the kids are ill again but apart from that and my hay fever i have never felt better.for the first time in a long time(so long i canīt remember when it was)i have not had to give in or fight even emotional eating/binging.the thought didnīt even once enter my head and i am hoping it stays that way.i lost 3lbs last week and 2lbs the week before so things couldnīt be better on that front.i even got into a pair of jeans that didnīt fit when i tried them on last month and i havenīt been able to get into them since before i was pregnant with ayman(at little over two years ago.)i am slowly getting my house sorted out and hope to be able to make the time this week to either do some sewing or knitting,something i normally only have time to do when i or one of the kids are in hospital.before i married and had kids i used to do some form of craft work every day.on the exercise front i am also doing well.doing over 10,000 steps a day,at least 5km a day on the bike,25 push ups which i hope to slowly increase and 100 squats which i also hope to increase.that is every day and occassionally when i have the time i will also do some form of other exercises.so all in all life is good,i wish the kids wasnīt ill,i wish i wasnīt so tired but we canīt have everything in our life that we want.if we did we would have nothing to strive for or look forward to.i hope you my spark friends are having just as good a life.take care,keep smiling and look at the things you have and that you can do rather thean the things you donīt have or canīt do.take care and god bless you all.love karen

every cloud has a silver lining.

Friday, March 26, 2010

sorry i am abit late writting this blog but life seemed to get in the way.
after all the stress with waiting for aymans test results which was negative thanks be to god.i learned a valueale lessons for me.and that is that i can stop my emotional eating taking control of me and that i can and am the one in control of my eating not the otherway round.for the first time i planned and organised alternatives to eating and also a back up plan for if the first one didnīt work.i have done that before in the past but with out the back up plan.instead i would just kick myself for being so weak and giving in and do nothing more about it.this time instead of kicking i fargave my self and did damage limitation.here is what i did for thoes who donīt already no.

1#preperation and distraction.
i made sure i had lots of healthy snacks in for when i felt the need to eat.
made sure i had lots of diet pepsi in(i know it is not so healthy but hey it has fast no calories,i love the taste and it helps me feel alittle pampered which is what i really need in times of stress.)
had loads of hand cream so if i wanted the pepsi i had to weight awhile before the hand cream made my hands no more slippy and i could think about weather i really need the pepsi,
did exercise to distract me from food.
did house work(this was the biggy for me because lastely my mind has been so wrapped up in all that has been going on that it was letting the normal day to day things slide.)
concentrated on making things more enjoyable for the kids.(not that i donīt do things with them but sometimes mine and their lives seemed to just revolve round drīs appointment,therapy etc and seeing more what they canīt or are not allowed to do rather than what they can do.)

2#damage limitation.
this was when i did emotionly eat i accepted itas a need when the above in nr,1 didnīt work.i also had a rule before i could eat anything unhealthy i had to eat too healthy things first.i didnīt say no you canīt have it.i said you can previded you ate two healthy things first.( the result of this.as i wasnīt forbidding it it didnīt take on unrealistic propotions like it would if it was banned.i.e i didnīt have to crave after it because it was allowed.also after eating the two healthy things first i was often not hungry so didnīt eat the planned unhealthy thing.when i did eat it it wasnīt as much as i would normally eat when emotionally eating.for two reasons,my stomach wasnīt emptyx because of the two healthy snacks first and it was nolonger forbidden so the gorging which goes hand in hand with eating/binging forbidden food was not there.)

the result of theese two stragagies is.
#i didnīt put on weight like normal but lost 0.5lb.ok it is not alot but still it is a loss not a gain.
#my house is clean
#i am more organised
#the kids had more time to be kids,because i am more organised i had more time and because i decided to put prioty on what they could do and not what they canīt do.
#my hands are in better conditoin with using the hand cream.
BUT MOST IMPORTANT:
#i know now i managed to controll my emotional eating.and if i can do it once i can do it again.IT NO LONGER HAS THE SAME POWER;THE SAME HOLD ON ME like it used to have.I AM NO LONGER AFRAID OF EMOTIONAL EATEN:

so like i said in the title.every cloud does have a silver lining.

thanks once again for reading this blog,thanks for reading and responding to all my other blogs.with out you it would not have been possible for me to be so focused and put my plan of action into force.once again you have all helped me more than you will ever know.you all rock.thank you ,thankyou,thak you.i can not say that enough.

up date,aymans test results.boy am i peeved.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

here is the score.i phoned the hospital yesturday at 10am the sister who answered the phone took my number and said the dr would phone.every time the thone would ring i was on tender hooks.a couple of times it rung and when i picked it up they had hung up again(boy how i hate that)i then wondered if that could have been professor von meutius but a emergency came in or something.to cut a long story shortby 3.45pm i still havenīt heard anything so i phone back the hospital as i had to go and pick up ayyub and zakariya from tagesheim and kindergarten.the same sister as before came on the phone.said she knows i am waiting for a phone call but professor von meutius is in with a patient and has lots of patients waiting to see her.i explained that i was going out now but would be back at 5pm.she said she would make a note.i got home 4.50pm.still waiting for a call.the phone rang later at 6.10pm just as i was in the middle of taking the pitta bread out of the oven.my 4 year old got to the phone.i said to him to say i wonīt be a minute.who ever on the phone said they will call back later and hung up.needless to say they didnīt call back.ayyub couldnīt tell me who it was on the phone only that it was a woman.so i am still here.donīt know the results.donīt even know if it was professor von meutius on the phone or not.and now i have to wait till wednesday as she only works on the monday and wednesday.so as you see i am here and a bit peeved to but it mildly.on the one side i am trying to think positively that it must be good news that she is not in a hurry to give me the results.onthe other hand in my down moments i think that she didnīt phone as she really didnīt have the toime or it is bad news and she didnīt want to squeese it in in a few minutes and was waiting till she had more time to speak to me uninterupted.luckily i am being more positive than not but it is still st thze back of my mind.but i am peeved and i am trying to work it off healthily with exercise and house work rathe rthan with food which is a step in the right direction as normally i would be eating uncontrollably.it helps that i have just got under the 250lb barrier abd i am determined not to go over it again at all cost.so woo hoo for this 250lb barrier.thanks for listening as usual and thanks for all your support and encouragement.it is all needed and much appreciated.

still waiting for the results of aymans test.

Saturday, March 20, 2010

phoned the hospital for the results of aymans cystic fibrousis test on thursday.the person on the phone said they have just got the test results but she couldnīt give it out to me.i have to phone back on monday to speak to professer von meutius as she has to speak to me.now there where two thoughts running through my head when she said this.the first,anger that the test results are there and they wont tell me.donīt they realise what we as mother go through when waiting for something that is this important,that to know one way or the other would be a relief and that until we know it is like our whole life is on hold and we are living on bated breath.obvious not.how i still remained polite to her and said ok i will wait till monday like a meek lamb i donīt know.then the thought that maybe he does have it and that is why professer von meutius wants to speak to me personally.if it was good newes surly the person on the phone could have told me.either way i am torn one way or the other over the day.one i am thinking on the positive side as i always try to do it is what keeps me going most of the time.the next it like what if it is,at least we would then know,we would know how to treast it but how could i live with the death sentance i see it would be for my child as the life expectancy though better than years ago is still not that high.granted i donīt know that much over it but what i have heard scares me if i am honest.i have perposely not looked it up on the computer as i donīt want to put the cart before the horse so to speak and i admit it i am really scared as i know they test the most likeliest first before testing the least likely so as this is the first test they are doing(as before they put all the symtoms down to asthma)this is the mostly likely the professer must think.i am slowly going mad here i tell you i am doing my best not to think about it but canīt seem to think about anything else.it is not helping my journey to loose weight as i am emotional eater.there i have admitted it .i am trying to control it and doing more exercise to counter act the effect.in fact exercise is helping me an the most.i can let vent in the exercise which i canīt do in real life as i donīt want any off the kids to know how i am feeling.i donīt want them to be scared or uncertain like i am.a question.do you thing i am going mad?it feels like it to me.anyway i hope this blog makes sense and thanks for letting me write it.will let you know on monday what the professer sayīs after all there is nothing i can do till then to change things,except more exercise maybe.

    I'm not excusing it because as a mother, of course you are anxious to know, but having worked in a law firm for years, I can tell you that the reason only the doctor/professor can give you the results all has to do with legalities. In a nut shell, they don't want to get sued. It also has something to do with the medical profession - only the primary doctor can give out information - nurses and assistants are NEVER allowed to do that.

That doesn't make it any easier on you but unfortunately, that is the policy.

Will definitely be keeping you in my prayers, Girl. You are amazing!!!

I am teary-eyed after reading this--it must be so painfully hard to be patient during everything you are going through.....La hawla wa la quwatta illa billah. I will continue make loads of dua for you and your dear Ayman and family. emoticon

    thanks everyone.you are all great and donīt let anyone tell you any differant.knowing you are there to lift me up means alot you know.i canīt really talk about it with my husband .his attitude is it is maktoub,we canīt do anything about it so why worry about it.idonīt think he really knows what it would mean tfor ayman or for us as a fami9ly re treatments etc if he does has it.i am the oppersite and try to foresee the next step.a case of as i am the one who has to deal with it the most i like to be prepared so i can organise my life ropund it if that makes sense.anyway thanks alot for your support everyone you are all diamonds.if i had the money and your addressīs i would send you all a diamond as well.

    I am so proud of you for getting all of these out. Perhaps, the person who answered the phone is merely a receptionist. Perhaps she is not allowed to give results over the phone. I know when my Tookie bird (my youngest) was in the ICU and the docs thought she had Swine Flu I was a wreck! A whole week I waited and still they were treating her with precautions (masks, gloves, robes) and not telling me a thing. Ya go crazy for sure. Stay busy. And accept that this issue is bigger than you. You can't control it. No matter how much you eat on it! You can do this! And perhaps you could try crushed ice. No calories and it helps with the stress eating. Good luck my friend. I will keep you in my thoughts. And I am here if you need to talk.
