I may weigh myself this way next week. My mother, the dearest, sweetest soul ever, will turn 82 tomorrow and she wants me to take her to one of my favorite restaurants, Carrabba's Italian Grill. I will cheat...there is no doubt of it...I will cheat. I've been doing damage control all the past week, lowering my points consumed with weight watchers and will continue this at least through Wednesday. I don't have deep religious convictions, but for the upcoming week, I may pray a considerable amount pointing out the "Hey I'm only trying to honor my mother" aspect of my situation as frequently as possible. At the very least I may sacrifice a goat or something. Here's to hoping for a miracle!
