Merry Christmas, now let's weigh in

This weekend we were home most of the weekend.  With the exception of Christmas day when we went to celebrate Christmas with my in-laws we were here.  And there was really one thing that we really did a lot of, and that was eat. Let me give you an example of what I mean.  This is from my journal on Christmas Eve.

2 slices Jennie-O Turkey Bacon
1/2 c. Egg Beaters fried into an omlette with 1 slice WW Reduced Fat singles
1 t. olive oil (to fry the eggs in)

4 oz. cooked pork chops
1 WW Pita Pockets
3 cups grapes
1 WW mini bar

Afternoon Snack:
1 1/2 WW Pita Pockets (baked into chips)
3 oz. Sabra roasted red pepper hummus

5 1/2 oz. Hormel Pork Loin (Mesquite flavor)
2 t. olive oil
1 c. asparagus with 1 oz. freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 serving Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream treat
5 oz. red wine

Night Snack:
4 oz. Sabra roasted red pepper hummus
1 1/2 WW Pita Pockets (baked into chips)


I went over my daily allowance by 2 points which I thought was really good.  When I got to weigh-in today I wasn't sure how to feel.  Then I stepped on the scale. 

Down 1.8 pounds.  Ok, I'm happy with that!  Especially since I weighed in only four days ago!

I'm 0.6 pounds shy of 60 pounds for the year.  That's a pretty good Christmas present to me.
I know everyone was busy over the holiday so if you missed the few posts that I put out last week, I'm providing links here.
