Had a fantastic birthday, kids spoilt me from midnight to midnight, loved it :)
They bought me a grill square pan to go on stove, already tried it with steak and brilliant!
Also apparently there is another surprise later in week that Toni said I am going to cry over, so not sure what that is?
Weight wise, I'm struggling as my body is all over the place pain wise, I'm feeling like the beginning of an infection but just doesn't seem to either get a proper hold thanks to daily antibiotics or to completely clear up, very frustrating.
Not feeling up to updating at moment, back later.

Start: 233.2 kg | 513.04 lb
Was: 195.1 kg | 429.2 lb
Now: 198.0 kg | 435.6 lb
Loss: +2.9 kg | +6.4 lb
Total losses: -35.2 kg | -77.4 lb
Losses for 2014: -7.4 kg | -16.3 lb
Legs feel great and light even with a gain this week I'm not too disheartened, ok a little bit but I have to remember, I've had some really big losses over the past few weeks and to gain 2.9 kg is pretty tame in the overall scheme of things.
So on to new week with some challenges coming up ie my birthday lol.
Plus our new stove has arrived at the store and is all paid for as of today and will be installed on Friday - woohoo, can't wait!
Tomorrow apparently I have an appointment at home with Hearing Australia, news to me, but ok whatever, they were supposed to turn up months ago but kept cancelling on me, now at least I know they're turning up thanks to a phone call today, so even then they couldn't tell me if morning or afternoon, geez thanks.
Rain rain and more rain but where the heck is / are these promised thunderstorms eh? BRING ME MY THUNDERSTORMS lol sigh.
Ok, since no gym today due to extreme wet weather, I must compensate somehow here at home, maybe some dumbell exercises watching MKR, but then again, some of the contestants make me want to throw something at the screen so maybe not? LOL :)
On for the new week :)

I'm not sure if I mentioned this on the blog or not but I had another episode of back / leg spasms starting morning of 27th Dec which was the night my family was coming down for Xmas dinner plus I had invited Toni's boyfriend Paul and his mum and dad too as I actually hadn't met them yet, so thought this would be perfect with all my family around to meet them too.
(On side note, my mother actually was very upset with me for having invited them and made sure I knew that, plus she wasn't happy about coming down anyway even though she didn't have to drive as my brother in law was bringing her, but she was going through her phase of telling her friends and church family that the wrong daughter had died, Lynne had so much more to offer than I and had achieved so much, it wasn't fair that it was her, not me and so on, so as you can understand, I was pretty hurt by that plus the fact she didn't care enough to want to meet her granddaughter's prospective in laws either, anyway I digress)
The lymphoedema flares up at times not with cellulitis but with what they think is tiny clots or blockages where all the crappy toxins trying to get out of my body gets blocked and presses on nerves that then shoot incredible pain through my back, side and down my right leg as well as weakening the leg to where I couldn't put any weight on it at all and of course, it chose today to flare up again even worse than normal
So I had to be doped up the highest I have had since my last hospital admittance which did help with the night but I have been paying for it ever since, it normally can take up to 14 days for the pain to lessen and I regain what normal use of the leg I have.
Anyway, I was feeling better today hence me going to Curves gym tonight just for a gentle workout and now I'm back in bed resting hoping that I don't pay for it tomorrow
Looks like we are changing our gym days to Weds at 6:00 pm so that will be interesting :)
Ok pain meds are kicking in so might try and get couple hours sleep, night all :)
