Well, I posted a couple of weeks ago that we thought our D was nearing WR and maybe having extinction bursts. Found out last week after a 9 pound weight drop from prior week that she'd been hiding 6 pound weights during weigh in (don't ask me how because I don't know) and was now only up 6 pounds in 3 months.  Now she will be searched before stepping on scale.

We also discovered hidden food in her room that let us know, unfortunately, we are not near the end of this phase at all and are now seriously exploring residential treatment options for her.  

If anyone has had experience specifically with Clementine in Malibu Lake, I would welcome hearing your insight. It's a small program (only 6 patients at a time) for girls ages 12-17. Our D is 17 currently and we know this gets much more complicated when she reaches 18.

Thanks in advance 🙂
