I feel so liberated this week away from my scale.

When I stay with my parents for the week typically this time of year I can about guarantee a 10-pound gain! Not this year.

I set myself up this year in a Biggest Loser type situation. I bought some food just for me (Jennie-O turkey breasts, spinach, peppers, low-fat string cheese) and am getting over 2 hours on the treadmill EVERY DAY! Plus I get to hug and kiss my nieces and nephew until they are sick of me (that is a lot of calories, right?).

Anyway, my mom has all the tools I need and one I apparently DON'T! I haven't weighed myself since Christmas Eve. I have found that I feel SO MUCH BETTER when I don't weigh. My mood can't be dictated by a 'good' or 'bad' number. When I am working this hard I always let myself get derailed if I have a number that I feel is higher than it should be.

Maybe I should think about weighing less. Or maybe NEVER. Let's not get crazy.

I am however looking forward to weighing in on Thursday morning when I get back. This has been a great week for me and my family.

When the mom is happy, everyone is happy.
