Dinner @ Borgata Buffet

I did my best in losing weight or was it my best? Exercise, weight loss pills and choosing the right kind of food. After bringing my booklets upstairs and downstairs I got lazy writing down the kind of food I eat which was supposed to be done with my Alli booklet. The nice thing about it is you get conscious wuth what you write down and what you eat the funny thing is I bring it everywhere i go and loose it somewhere. Yet I am conscious of the things I put in my mouth since it is not easy to bring it out on the other end. Ilove exercising on my Blowflex it has really helped me tons. I lost 5 lbs which is not bad. Hey it's a reason to celebrate. I treated myself to Atlantic City shopping and Borgata buffet dinner. It was one of the most memorable dinner buffet. The food was good and I felt like I am in control of myself no matter how much food there is in front of me.
There's a lot more to lose but it feels great that I have started this regimen just to make me feel good inside and out.

Man vs. Food

Guest post from: Kent Lara

Man vs. Food has got to be, hands down, my favorite travel show of all time. I am sure some people will argue and say that it is actually a food show. Well, it is both, which is partly why it is so awesome. I am lucky enough to be able to watch Man vs. Food on satellite television so I get to see it in better quality than most. Every time that I see that Man vs. Food is on I have to either drop everything and watch it, or frantically save it to my Satellite TV. This is one show that I and my husband can agree on. I love that not only do we get to see exotic locations, hear about their native customs but also learn about authentic cuisine. I absolutely adore the host too. His laid back vibe makes watching him eat local cuisine enjoyable. I have never been one for cooking shows. I also thought, “Why do I want to watch people eat food that I cannot smell or taste myself?” Man vs. Food has broken that trend for me. My idea of a fun night use to be getting dressed up and heading out for dinner and dancing, now as I age, I tend to be more low key. I would much rather order in some take out and spend a night on the couch.
