Anyway, let me see, where were we?
Ohh week before last I bought the Lite n Easy breakfast, lunch & dinners packages and found it a great help but was way out of my budget to do more than maybe twice a month but when I went and double checked the amount, found that if I got the 7 day breakfast & lunches instead, I could afford that each week and for dinners, the kids and I will just have normal portioned controlled healthy options ourselves which is a win win situation :)
So last week was just normal foods and this week I have started on the 7 day breakfast / lunches plan so we'll see how that goes :)

Health / Legs / Lymphoedema
That's another story, it's been tough, every few weeks I'm having another cellulitis attack which is increasingly harder and harder to deal with both physically and mentally, very draining and emotionally I'm a wreck!
I have got an appointment finally with the Lymphoedema Clinic at Westmead on 22nd April so that's a good thing and we'll see if they're able to help more now than they could in the past.
Wheelchair well, that's a bust in regards to getting it fixed, it's been since Oct 2012 and I'm STILL waiting for them to get the right parts ie wheels, arms, new seat etc, it's been 3 times stuff arrived and 3 times it's wrong sigh, so now they're talking end April / May ???? I mean thank goodness I can still use the chair (just) but the tyres are so smooth now, so bald it's slippery on wet surfaces and a little dangerous and harder to push, so not happy :(
Gym / Curves has also been a non event too as each week I am either sick in bed, or in bed recovering, never seems to end at moment, so I'm not stressing about it, just doing a little exercise here at home in bed, or in chair ie Just Dance 4 etc and that will have to do for now.
Study - what study? Enough said.
Kids are fine :) Toni's back at Tafe and Michael is just here LOL - nah they've both been a terrific help and it's great having their support in all aspects.
In fact, they've been weighing in each week (along with our pets too LOL) it's become a real family event each week and actually that's the best part cause we're all looking out for each other in regards to eating healthily and making better choices :)
Ok, exhausted now, time to close computer and head back to bed, so hopefully now I've done this huge catch up, I can update more regularly hehe hmmm wonder if anyone is actually around now to read since I've been absent for a while LOL :) sigh oh well, till next time.
