No More Cake!

So many birthdays, so much cake. Is it really necessary to eat cake to enjoy the celebration? Isn't it enough that I bring a card and a gift? Just because I refuse the cake doesn't mean I'm not celebrating your birthday. Why does everyone push the cake like crack when you work up the strength to say "no thank you"? Saying "No" is hard enough without you trying to change my mind and convince me that I must have a slice. Yes, I'm sure I don't want any. No, not even a little piece. Really, I'm sure.

It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't always give in to the cake pushers. Honestly, I don't want any more cake, I don't need any more cake, I'm trying to get years worth of cake off my a$$. Please stop pushing the cake. Please!


  1. When I was heavily on WW, Shawn would bring me home a donut with a candle every birthday. He would say, "at least you can count the points in this and there are no leftovers!" We need to do that more often at work too!

  2. I'm so glad I work from home these days. I used to hear, "Hey everyone, there's cake in the break room" about twice a week!

  3. Yeah, why isn't there a birthday salad tradition? :)

    I handled a cake pusher at work once by telling her I was allergic and would die a painful, lingering death if I ate cake. She said, "Really?" And I said, "Oh, wait. Maybe it was the person feeding it to me." Fortunately, she laughed. :)

  4. I think it's because if you eat the cake then they don't feel so guilty about eating it!!!

  5. Cake is the hardest temptation for me to turn down ! I LOVE cake ! Any flavor !

  6. People always show their love with food. Tell them you only accept cash now.

  7. Oohh it must be so hard to say no to birthday cake!!! I know I wouldn't be able to say no because I love cake + icing myself and I wouldn't be able to resist it if it were sitting right in front of me.
    A lot of the girls here though, they take the cake anyway but don't finish it, and drop it in the bin when no one's looking. What about giving that a try next time? :)

  8. Mate you will find that the person who pushes you to eat the cake is the person who does not want you to lose weight! You might end up more gorgeous than HER!

    And remember this too... NO ONE FORCE FEEDS AN ADULT... if it goes in your gob, YOU put it there!

    Ignore the bi-arch who wants you to eat it, YOU DON'T HAVE TO.

  9. I admit it...I ate the cake!! My friend's daughter had a birthday party last night and I ate the cake. As a matter of fact I ate TWO pieces and 2 small scoop of ice cream and it was DELICIOUS!! But that was yesterday. Today I just have to put it behind me and stay on track!!

  10. LOVE cake...It is totally awesome...Perfer wedding cake over any cake though it is the best!!

  11. Hilly: I'm not a big donut fan but I could go with cupcakes instead of big birthday cakes.

    LAF: It seems there is always a reason for cake, huh?

    Cammy: I used to be allergic to everything including flour and eggs so I could never have cake. Maybe that has something to do with my addiction.

    Jenn: I guess misery and fat loves company.

    Susan: Me too.

    POD: Great idea. Cash and diamonds only.

    3MC: If I only had that kind of willpower to take it and throw it away instead of throwing it down my throat.

    Chris H: I know I have nobody to blame but myself. Need to work on those resistence muscles.

    Boilergrad: It was delicious and I enjoyed it but eating sugar makes me want more sugar. It is such a slippery slope.

    Irene: MMMmmm ... wedding cake tastes better 'cause it is made with love in mind.

  12. I know as if it weren't already like torture for us right?
