It's Me or the Cake

Friday, July 10, 2009

Don't get me wrong now. I have a very supportive family. At least they were supportive the first 100 times I said I was going to lose weight. I guess by now even the most diehard supporters have given up hope that I will actually ever slay the fat dragon. I don't blame them. And I try not to resent the fact that even though my daughter knows I am dieting, she and her boyfriend made an Oreo chocolate cake. It's sitting there on the kitchen counter now as I write. I watch it. It watches me. And why chocolate? That's my worst Achilles heel. If one of the Chippendale dancers walked naked into the room right now, I'd tell him to step aside because he was blocking my view of that glorious chocolate cake. I wonder what my family would say if I just dumped that entire luscious cake into the garbage. "Mommmm......are you crazy? That's not fair! You've really flipped out this time!" Alas.....I have no choice. It's me or the cake. This house just isn't big enough for the both of us. emoticon

    Success is the best revenge. Make it your primary mission to SHOW THEM!! You can do it and Spark can help.

    Not only does that cake need to be in the bottom of the trash can, but then pour a whole box of salt over it so it can't be rescued !!

    As you start feeling some success you'll get stronger and they'll take you more seriously.

    Never, ever, ever doubt that you can do this!! YOU CAN DO THIS !!!

    OMG- I laughed out so loudly that I had to read the blog to my hubby. I hope that cake is sitting at the bottom of the trashcan.
