eberg13's Journal, 16 May 2018

WW encourages journaling, but I don't want to do that on the WW site because one day I will stop the program (which costs) and go to just covering my weight on my own and my app will go away, too. And I have better friends here. As most of you know, I have been doing Atkins for most of my life and I am convinced that it is a perfect way to lose weight when you are younger. At my age, it seems that calories do count. I am enjoying eating lighter (about 1300 calories per day, much of it from veggies and fruit) and my weight is going down. Best of all, if I stay away from sugar in its less natural forms, my joints feel great, too. I am also exercising a lot--about 4.5 - 5 hours a week. I have lost weight steadily and would be much lower now but last weekend was a vacation and I vacationed from my diet, too, especially with some very good higher-calorie beer.
Stress if a huge factor right now. Mom moved from assisted living to hospice when she broke her pelvis thinking she could get into bed on her own. Getting wonderful care but setting it up and dealing with the ongoing struggle here in Wisconsin to keep her benefits while the state ****s up their reporting is a struggle. Just when I think it is over, and everything is going to be fine, someone else over whom I have no control decides otherwise based on some computer mis-entry. I figure I can just appeal and keep her benefits for a few months. Given how quickly she is fading, she doesn't have more than that anyway. This last year I have been so concerned with what she needs by way of state and VA aid, that I have not just been with her. I want that now. Oddly, I am just now beginning to realize how much I am going to miss her.
