Support Group Necessity – Reach Out

the Battle of the bulge is not easy:  we become moody, edgy, irritable, touchy and so much more. So its easy to give up and fall of the wagon. That is why a support group is necessary.

So I have been Lucky that I have my own little support group with me, its been a bumpy ride but we are getting there.

So when I started my weight loss journey and decided to join the GYM my mom laughed as did the immediate family who are close to me. You see I had done this so many times  no one thought I would manage to pull it off.

Don’t get me wrong, they were tired of my joining the GYM and not going through and they all thought “ok another failed attempt” But this time what no one realized was that I have had blessings sent to me (everything happens for a reason) :

  • My Son Noah – my Miracle (A gift from God);

  • A Girl Called Nadia Khan from London

    • there is so much I can say and yet it would not be enough (she is another beautiful soul that has walked the walk with me & still is)

    • she joined the GYM with me

    • she came with me relentlessly for months & due to busy life schedules we try to work out together when possible

    • stood by me through it all – a backbone

  • another called Christin from Berlin – but she’s more Omani now 🙂

    • a force to reckon with as well

    • my rock & backbone

    • another beautiful soul who has walked the walk & still is

  • and sitting in Budapest is my Sister Anna Maria who lives on the 4th floor, without a lift (you can imagine how many times I cursed her coz I had walk up 94 steps and down 94 steps) 😉

    • my globe-trotter

    • someone who has stood by me from across the continents

    • another soul sent to me, a force to be reckoned with and my pillars of strength

the above was how it started, along the way the circle increased

  • my Coaches

  • Mum & Dad, they started to believe (they are my parents always stood by me, but as far as loosing weight was concerned it was hard for them to believe)

  • Princess Ash & Khali (uncle) Shez from Manchester – my cousins

  • Hilal Al Habsi – Someone who Believes & true to his word

  • Ahmed Al Omairi – training us now a friend & brother

  • Eva Stanley Jones – Making it Happen, like a breath of Fresh Air

  • the gyms

  • my online supporters

  • those who only say they support – talk is cheap 

There are those that would like to remain anonymous & those that breezed in and out of my life, bringing or teaching us something positive in life.

Everyone needs support something or someone to fall back on … as the shrinking arab feel free to contact me for that, I know how it feels:

“I will be the change”

Peanut Butter & BR

So I have been away for a few weeks now, and honestly its just been a bit tough, so much has happened in the last 10 months. Hence the peanut butter and BR

“I HAVE NOT STOPPED MY GYM”

  • biggest change by self choice was that I became a Single Mom after 10 years – EMBRACING SINGLEHOOD.
  • in less than 8 months starting before single mommyhood hit me was the weight loss 84kg in total with just diet, gym and  determination nothing else (this started before the separation and then divorce)
  • dealing with the unwanted physical change of weight loss – the excess and saggy skin 
  • starting my professional and personal life from scratch – coz I was working for the ex husband 
  • decided that the ex husband and I need to be friends for the sake of our son, which led to an amicable divorce, we are friends. 🙂 – its hard, but has to be done! seen too many damaged kids from nasty splits!! my son is more important that any one or anything.
  • my parents became became a bit ill (just age) during different times, am an only child.
  • as of this weekend i have officially become socially in incapacitated 🙂
  • I have had a few week days where peanut butter and baskin and robins were my best friends is that over?? not sure!

“Family” – need I say More

 

Motivating my Son

As they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. Reasons include increasing demands of school, a feeling among some kids that they aren’t good at sports, a lack of active role models, and busy working families.

And even if kids have the time and the desire to be active, parents may not feel comfortable letting them freely roam the neighborhood as kids did generations ago. So their opportunities might be limited.

In spite of these barriers, parents can instill a love of activity and help kids fit it into their everyday lives. Doing so can set healthy patterns that will last into adulthood.

So we celebrated my Little One’s Fifth Birthday :-), and  the first place I  took him (which I do on occasion) was the GYM, to help mama with the counting of her exercises – hehehe

I am proud to say that he has started a change in his eating habits and sports is always encouraged
