Start: 233.2 kg | 513.04 lb
Was: 197.9 kg | 434.5 lb
Now: 201.6 kg | 443.5

Loss: +3.7 kg | +8.1 lb

Total losses: -31.6 kg | -69.5 lb

Losses for 2014: -3.8 kg | -8.4 lb

Frustrating as hell to have felt so good for weeks, with both legs going down in size and feeling really light and finding it so easy to move. It now gradually my legs especially the  right one is getting heavier and more swollen by the hour.

After a horrid week in regards to getting in the car and seating up properly on the seats etc I knew I was in for some problems come weigh day today and yep, gain of nearly 4 kilos (3.7 kg to be precise)


So back resting again and limited to short times sitting up in the chair, not what I wanted but anything to help maybe bring the fluid down out of the leg a little faster.

At least this week I got to go to the movies with the kids on Tuesday.  Toni and I saw Vampire Academy in one theatre while Michael popped next door at same time to watch 300 I think it was?

Anyway both finished same time and was fantastic to be out even if stuck in the chair and watch movies again like "real people" lol.

We are going to try and do this more often, maybe once a month if there are decent movies that is lol.

Wed morning I was sitting up in bed at 7:00 am since I had trouble sleeping Tues night so decided to do 30 mins dumbell arm exercises which actually paid off as I wasn't able to go to gym a) cause of the legs and b) Mel my trainer had to attend her daughter's school activity so wasn't going to be at gym anyway and yes I could have still gone and done my own workout while Toni went round the circuit but to be honest, I just was so tired and in pain that I saw it as proof that I should stay home and rest, which I did.

Ok well. Enough of the crying, depressive sad whinging Annie, back to smiling happy excited Anne instead.

Bring on the new week!

5th March 2014 / Weigh Day

Start: 233.2 kg | 513.04 lb
Was: 198.7 kg | 437.1 lb
Now: 197.9 kg | 434.5 lb
Loss: -0.8 kg | -1.8 lb

Total losses: -35.3 kg | -77.7 lb

Losses for 2014: -7.5 kg | -16.5 lb

Loss of 800 grams this week, doesn't sound a lot but definitely a weight of my mind!  Mainly because I just can't tell any more, with my legs up and down etc, it's all up in the air from day to day how heavy I am and it's frustrating to know you do the right thing but don't achieve it on the scales.

Having said that, after gaining 700 grams last week (birthday week) I was struggling this week for some reason, not sure why actually, just dealing with a lot of pain and the legs were different this week, not heavy but hot spots were happening with feeling of knots deep inside which I am so wary of as I've been warned about the high dangers of blood clots with lymphoedema in legs especially when I've lost a lot of feeling down one side of my body (left) due the major car accident I had 9 yrs ago about this time of year too.

Anyway, week has finished, had a loss and now concentrating on another loss for next week.

Loss: +0.7 kg | +1.5 lb

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.
