I weighed in this morning at 157.1, down 1.6 pounds from last week.  However, I’m still up 1.5 pounds from where I was three weeks ago, so I’m still working off the holiday gain.  I feel like I’m getting back on track though, going only seven points over my allowance last week.  It certainly helped that I earned 34 activity points.  I think that’s the most I’ve earned in a week so far!

I worked late tonight and ate an entire bag of popcorn as my afternoon snack, so I wasn’t very hungry for dinner when I got home.  I wanted to have some sustenance though, so I threw together this tasty slaw.

The base of this salad was a few cups of shredded red cabbage, a shredded carrot, sliced green onion and a chopped dill pickle.  The dressing was one Tablespoon of reduced-fat Vegenaise, a splash of white vinegar, a drop of liquid stevia, and pinches of salt, pepper, dried dill and celery seed.  To top it off I added two teaspoons each of bacon-flavored chips and sunflower seeds.  This big bowl of crunchy tastiness was only two points!  I was satisfied…but then I ate a serving of peanut butter filled pretzels.  They’re too good.  A friend left a big container of them at our house, and someone really needs to take them away.
