Tonight I am writing you from Kansas City, well, just outside of it in Bonner Springs. We are enjoying a mini-vacation this Memorial Day weekend. We started the journey at one of our favorite places on Earth,
|Can we just move in please? We wouldn't be any trouble, we promise!|
Now normally when we go to Pizza West, we get a couple of pizzas, cheesy garlic bread, and a big ol’ desert. We eat as much as we can possibly stand, take the rest home, and probably have more of the left-overs for an evening snack. I’m not proud of this, but it is what it is. Add to that the fact that we are on vacation (normally a free-for-all junk food spree and second dinner extravaganza), the odds are that we are going to make this visit to Pizza West one for the record books. Well it was, but in a much different way. You see we have been good this week, I mean REALLY good. Brandon has dropped 14 pounds and has had to tighten his belt two notches this week. I am a bit behind him at 9 pounds but I am very happy with that. Before we got to Pizza West tonight, Brandon looked up their menu and planed out our order. Instead of ordering two pizzas, we got one, and that one was a medium. We split the pizza up between the three of us and we had salads from the salad bar before we ate the pizza. It was delicious, it was worth the wait (been planning this trip for most of the week), and the best part, we weren't miserable after we ate. We didn't stuff ourselves so full that we were in pain. Instead we got just enough and were able to go on with our evening.
Will we always have that kind of self control? Probably not. But tonight we did and that was a major accomplishment.
