Let Them Eat Cake

UGGHH!! I ate way too much birthday cake ....

My birthday was weeks ago and I got through it without having any cake but I certainly made up for it this weekend. My SIL made a delicious white cake with white frosting and rainbow sprinkles for me last night so, of course, I had to eat it. It was really good but I wish I didn't eat it. I definitely have eater's remorse.

I wish I had been strong enough to turn it down but I'm not (yet). Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be seeing a loss this week. Looks like nothing new going on here.

MMMMmmmmm ... cake ... mmmmmmm .....


  1. I'm not a big cake eater but white cake and white frosting is my favorite. Can't say if I could resist either.

  2. Ah, birthday cake won't break you! It's part of life, now you're back on track and that cake is history.

  3. "Eater's Remorse" - that's a good way of putting it. I had that last night myself. I fixed and ate dinner and then ate MORE as I was cleaning up and then was too full (and remorseful)!

  4. Could have been worse. I also like that expression, it is really cute and well put. Hang in there, and remember one cake now and then is better than every day, one piece is better than two, a few bites just for the falvor is better than a whole piece. It could always be worse, just try to taste only next time. ;-) SOOO much easier said than done, eh?

  5. Ah, my sister in cake. I know the feeling well. :)

  6. you know I can relate! its the worst when you eat something and then cant even enjoy the fact that you ate it because you instantly regret it (or regret it when you see the scale). I know I should take my own advice, but just know that this one time isnt worth the stress and regret. its ok to enjoy treats from time to time and dont feel bad!

  7. I'm not sure I could resist cake, however, I'd wonder why my SIL made a cake for me because I would wonder if she were trying to sabotage my weight loss. But the whole time I was wondering, I'd be eating the cake.

  8. Manuela: Haven't we all?

    MaryBeth: Who CAN resist cake?

    Jenn: At least I turned down taking some home for later. It is history and time to move on.

    LAF: Time to find someone else to clean up after dinner ;)

    Lady Vea: Great advice, maybe someday I'll be strong enough to put it into action.

    Cammy: HAHAHA ... sister in cake ;)

    Heather: Wouldn't it be great if we could all take our own advice and encouragement we give to everyone else. My memories should be about the good time, not how much cake was eaten, right?

    POD: I don't think there was any thought of sabotage. It's just what people expect to do when they celebrate birthdays. Nobody has birthday fruit, right?

  9. You know it's bad luck not to indulge in a slice of birthday cake, right? You had no choice! :)

  10. Ooh, evil SIL cake! LOL I’ve succumbed to “having just a taste” of an off-diet treat someone has made especially for me too--mostly because I’d feel bad and guilty for saying no. As much as I think it will be okay and I’ll be in control, it usually sets me off on a few days of non-diet eating. And an inevitable weight gain.


  11. Rapunzel: Thank you! I love it. I have a good excuse. My luck is bad enough, I didn't want to risk it getting worse.

    Susan: Unfortunately, the cake did set me off on a non-diet eating binge. Time to get back on the wagon.
