Eat That Birthday Cake! < Oh My >




Last Fri we had a family bday celebration. Typically, if "dieting" I'd pass the cake up & feel sorry for myself while everyone else eats it. And then, for the next several days, I'd eat all kinds of OTHER junk, likely because I really wanted the cake. This time, with my new SP lifestyle (not a diet), I researched the cake online to replicate the same type that I planned to have, added it to my tracker under dinner, 1st thing in the a.m. & spent the day tracking w/ that in mind. It worked!!! emoticon

More Information:

And you know what? That cake was good! And you know what else? I ate my portion and stopped right there, instead of getting seconds and thirds like my husband and grandkids did (and like I generally would have done!).
