I've now lost about 10 kilograms (22lbs) in weight, I'm walking a distance of about 4.0 kilometres (about 2.5 miles) a day, it varies but hovers around that distance, sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more, I generally have one "sloth" day each week, usually on a Sunday, where I do virtually nothing, except for eating the right way of course, that's everyday. My walking has definitely improved, if my phone's step counter is accurate, I'm doing about 5,000 - 6,000 steps a day.

What Healthy Fats are Allowed on the Paleo Diet? 
Fat consumption is an important part of the Paleo Diet, I will list the "good fats" that can be eaten and that are also easily available from supermarkets in Australia below with pictures of the brands and products.

Why is this goal important to me? I have only ever made it to just under the two month mark previously, so I'm quite happy I've beaten my previous record, piss off, yes it is a big deal to me lol. Yep if you can bother to read my previous Paleo Diet blog posts, all I've really done is get back to where I ended up the last time I tried this diet, so no smart arse comments, it takes me a while to get my mind right...

It's now a little over three months since I had my first course (5x) of Lemtrada (alemtuzumab) infusions, luckily none of the possible nasty side effects have reared their ugly heads, whew! I'm happy with that, though some of the side effects can show up years later from memory, at least I haven't been someone who had immediate problems tolerating this infusion treatment, so far in my life I have been lucky in that I seem to tolerate drugs quite well, though I've never been under a general anaesthetic so I have no idea how I'd go with that...please don't assume I'm gloating, it's a thought that definitely runs through my mind occasionally because I get a "monitoring" blood test every month and then you wait for the "all clear", from the phone app or email they deliver, just a tad nervously lol.

I'm into about week six of eating better and exercising, the results are slowly starting to show, the most obvious are weight loss and my gait (walking) and general fitness, even though my walking has improved heaps, I still don't necessarily feel really safe walking, but I guess you become more critical of yourself because of one's memory of how it used to be, the walking has helped me to lift my right leg which is the main one that causes me issues, at one stage both legs inability to walk saw me end up in a wheelchair for two to three months, though the left leg pretty much fully recovered, the right leg didn't.

I'm on the third week of "No Sugar" I started around Christmas day, I thought it best not to make a new years resolution, us humans rarely stick to those, me especially, too much pressure...

Well, it's about one month anyway, I had an appointment to visit my Neurologist and Nurse yesterday, it was the follow up Lemtrada visit, they had the results of the first blood and urine test I had for the Lemtrada monitoring. There is an app for Lemtrada monitoring which texts you the results so I already knew all was fine, though it's always nice to hear it confirmed by a human... I also had a chat to the main nurse I've been seeing, Belinda has been great putting up with my incessant questions lol. There has been a lot to take in since I started my Lemtrada infusions journey. She organised everything from start to finish!

I survived! In fact, by all accounts, I had a dream run, just two minor incidents, one was expected. I was bored, I was tired but I didn't seem to be having any ill effects from the...

This won't be a large post, just wanted to add the picture of the washout drug I need to take before I have the Lemtrada infusion, wow there are quite a few sachet's I need to consume lol. This "washout" is to get rid of any trace of the Aubagio Oral medication from my system.
