Weight Watchers - Week 4 - Down 1.8

The total is 3.8 - 21.2 to go...

I'm journaling my food. I'm continuing my FITBIT streak and I just increased my WW Fitness Goal to 91 points up from 51... I'll have to do more than just steps... What I've noticed is the accountability - I log everything and accept the fact that for the last 3 weeks I've gone well over on my allotted points by about a day (30 points)... I think I don't eat much fruit - zero points - and my other choices cost me... I'm continuing to eat REAL FOOD and LOWER CARB. My goal for the week is to *try* to stay within my points to see if the weight loss will increase... I'm a little frustrated with the pace.

I'm on my second week of a Thyroid med increase. I still can't tell if it's working - I'm not as tired as I have been, but I don't know if I can attribute it to the meds or to the fact that my stress has declined. My sleep has been off for the last few nights. I broke down and let the DH put an air conditioner in the bedroom. The noise is horrible. I need SILENCE... I keep waking up... meh.

The teen transitioned from a residential program right to camp. No news is good news right? I'm pretty sure staff collected phones since she hasn't checked in and I haven't noticed any online presence. It's good. I hope she's having fun. I hope she's not stressed. I hope. The little one will be joining her at the end of the month so I'll get to visit her in person. I miss her.

I'm still pushing forward with the teen's fall plans for school. Everyone I talk to is shocked that we've had such a hard time. Everyone that has worked with her has volunteered to write something on her behalf. I would like something in place by September... I don't think that will happen. Not good.

Mindfulness. Self-care. My summer priorities.
