How to Gain Nine Pounds in Four Days

Attend All Girls Weekend in Las Vegas. Meet with family. Enjoy buffets and other good food and snacks in the room. Above is Thursday night's buffet at the Mirage hotel. MMmmm good!

I don't have a picture of it, but lunch on Friday with Jessica and Janet and Mom and Donna was at the Circus Circus Buffet. Above is Friday's dinner at the Mexican Restaurant somewhere nearby. Treasure Island, perhaps? They all look the same (casinos).

Below is Saturday morning's breakfast.... Who in their right mind eats a FOUR egg omelet??? Well, I had four scrambled eggs and potatoes and others had fruity waffles and we had pancakes and juice, and , and, and. This is the "Original Pancake House." Good home cookin'.
Saturday evening we went to the Sahara Nascar Cafe for the MAN VS FOOD challenge. That's one big burrito. Of course, Donna did NOT eat the whole thing. We all helped and STILL could not finish it. I ate it for lunch at home on Tuesday the next week. And Wednesday. Really. I enjoy left-overs for lunch and it WAS very tasty.
Oh, but that's not all. I had my own small breakfast in my room on Sunday morning after I took Mom and Donna to the airport bright and early. Then I went out to lunch with Aunt Tuny and girls to In 'n' Out burger. THEN we had dinner that night at Chili's. Ugh! Roll me out the door!

But Wait! There's more! I bought fast food on my way home Monday morning early AND Krispy Kreme donuts. Of course, I got a free fresh one. But who stops at just one? Not people like me who have no will power. So I had donuts on the way home, too. There WERE still enough to share by the time I got to Cedar City, so I didn't eat them all.

So, in a nutshell, that is how I managed to gain 9 pounds over the course of a long and delicious, er, I mean DELIGHFUL All Girl's Weekend! And that is why I have walked 8,000 steps so far today. :-) It's gotta start some time. Oh, wait. Thanksgiving is in a few days....
Oh well.

You crack me up! Did you really gain 9 lbs? Really? Well see. That's the difference with you and me. I gained 2.5. My body is used to me abusing it. Yours isn't. Ha!

Yeah, it was really 9 pounds right after I came home. It's mellowed a little to be more like 3 to 5 by now. But tomorrow is Thanksgiving. What's a piggie to do? ha.

LOL... why is it I don't gain 9lbs on these weekends? I can't figure this one out!
