sorry it has been so long since my last blog.it was not as if i had nothing to say but more the case i didn´t have the time.alot has happened since my last blog.first i was still putting on weight but the last 2weeks that has done a turn around and i lost 5 lbs.i hope this turn around will be around for a while and doesn´t decide to make another u turn.i guess that is down to me though lol.just altered one of my mini goals and that is to reach one-der-land by my 2nd spark anniversary(23lbs)which is 8 weeks away which will be an average of 3lbs a week.must just pull my socks up and my pants in i guess.also just noticed that i am only 2.5lbs away from my other mini goal and that is to loose enough weight to use the kids trampoline.plan to do that this week all being well but i wont be able to use it because of the op but at least i would know i could use it.this will be a big biggy for me.will keep you all informed.since the last blog my husband and the kids are all back home .ayman has been in hospital for 4 days .he is still ill though.zakariya is also ill.talking of zakariya we have been fighting to keep him in main stream school which had involved lots of meetings with schools,social workers,dr´s etc.i am afraid to say we lost that fight and zakariya must go to a special school.which means now sorting out cancelling fees,sorting out new school fees seeing about getting help with the school fees etc.also have a lot more dr´s visit test etc for the new school for his accessment etc.so will also be buzy with that for a while.have been buzy baking and organising things for zakariya to have a leaving party at his after school club and his school.baking cakes and doing goodie bags for 50 kids in total anbd i didn´t eat a single cake or sweet.hope this is a sign for the coming up halloween.re me.i am still having a lot of back pain(upper right shoulder blades region)with the lung embolies and still going twicw a week for the quick/IRN worth for my tablets amount.but with the iron injections i only have to go once a week now.woo hoo.i am still having a lot of pain in my right ankle bone ,the dr thinks it is athrose i have an appointment with the orthopedic on the 3rd of november but have to cancel it now as aymans lung specialist appointment is on the same day and time(the earliest the lung specialist could fit him in)and that is more important.who knows how long i will have tó wait for my next orthopedic appointment i waited 5 weeks for this one.so is life when you have kids i guess.hubby is also not well he has toothache and his dentist is on holiday till tuesday where he has an appointment.hands up who can tell me how my husband is acting(yes you guessed it like a big baby and that it is theend of the world.)so that´s it up to know that is the total update i don´t think i missed anything out except this.
i couldn´t have done it all without your wonderful support you all help me keep going and not give up so you can all do the same.keep going and never give up and don´t forget to smile
Sounds like to me you are doing Great under the circumstances - with sickness in the family - that creates Stress and stress plays havoc with weight loss (moreso in women than men I think ) Glad to hear your baby is doing better Sorry to hear Hubby is having tooth problems and that you have to put off your appt - is it arthritis that is causing the discomfort? 2545 days ago

Way to go on the 5 lbs Karen! With all that's going on in your life that is a real accomplishment. Men are such babies when they don't feel well, my husband acts like he's the only one who's ever been sick. Take care! 2550 days ago
