The Vegas game of eating roulette

Back from Vegas at last!

Flew out last thursday and arrived back home yesterday evening. There are no pictures of course (or evidence as I like to call it).  Only memories. Very blurry, foggy, hazy and out of focus memories that I will treasure forever.

My friend and I joked that we'd only eat the garnish off the many drinks we planned to have but we ended up eating more food than last time!

Weekend Roll Call: Burgers, fries, pizza, garden salads, turkey clubs, more salad, more burgers, more fries and then subway subs on the last day.

Luckily, no damage done. Weighed myself this morning and the scale is still the same-yay! Very happy to know that I can control myself and make healthier choices, even on vacation. No buffets or all-you-can-eats for us. Too expensive anyway and I can't eat enough food to make it worth the $25 US they were charging anyway.

That's all for now. This week marks the last week in the weigh-in contest so I need to be accountable and keep active. So I will definitely update this entry again at the end of the day - keeps me on my toes! 

Yay Vegas!
