What do Weight Watchers and Vegas have in common?!



For those of you who have been following my weight loss/getting fit journey, I made my first big goal. Woot! I lost 20 pounds by July 5. I did it in 10 weeks with Weight Watchers. 





I set the goal date of July 5th because on July 5th I, along with Priss, her husband and my husband, was leaving for Las Vegas! I wanted to look good for our trip, be in shape and have some new clothes to wear. It certainly feels good to accomplish this feat. No, I'm not finished. I'd really like to lose 20 more. I'll be happy with 10-15 more though. Plus, I'm hoping at that point I will no longer need my high blood pressure medication. THAT, in and of itself, will be such a reward. 

Before I share a few pictures from our Vegas trip, I want to share 2 recipes. I found this grilled cabbage recipe on Pinterest - of course. It was delicious. (It can be baked in the oven as well.)  I paired it up with a grilled portobello mushroom stuffed with colored bell peppers and onion and topped with fresh mozzarella cheese. 



The other recipe is a Crockpot recipe. 


Crockpot Zesty Chicken

1 package of raw chicken tenderloins
1 package taco seasoning
1 package Ranch seasoning
1 can chicken broth

Combine the broth and seasonings; mix well. 
Add the chicken.
Cook on high for 4 hours or low 5-6 hours. 

After it's cooked, shred with a fork. 
I served it on heated corn tortillas with sauteed onions and peppers. I topped it with a little fat free sour cream and cilantro. 

Because the above recipe made quite a bit and I had made too many peppers and onions, I came up with another dish for the next night with the leftovers. 


I used the above leftovers, added fresh onion and topped with Weight Watchers shredded Mexican Cheese. They were pretty darn good. They would have been really good with some black beans in them as well. I'm planning on making a lot of things with the Wonton Wrappers in the future. 

Okay, now for a few Vegas pictures....

Priss and I deputized ourselves as fashion police. Here are a few questionable outfits. Vegas would not be Vegas without these types of sightings. 

If you're a lady and you have back boobs. For the love of God, please cover them up. 

And unless you are intending to get paid for your services, PLEASE don't wear these skimpy dresses and think everyone thinks you look hot in them. You really only look like a hooker (even if you have the body to wear one). I'd bet $100 these two were making a "deal." 

It's always fun to dress like the hotel lounge. 

NEVER go eat lunch in your bikini bottoms. Oh, wait! That's us. Hahaha!! 
Senor Frogs is a fun place to eat. 

This bride in the pleather black wedding dress totally thought she was bombing our picture. 
We SO planned the picture just to get her in it. Yes, we are good like that. I'm just not sure that veil goes with the dress?! What do you think? 

And, as tempted as you may be, it's probably a good idea to pass on these types of t-shirts. I made Priss put it back on the rack. Friends don't let friends dress ridiculous. 


We had such a terrific time in Vegas. I'm already missing the fun, the food, obnoxious clothes  (not ours, of course) and the company.
