You all had such good ideas. I did eat a few small pieces and did track it so I felt good about that. I guess I just have some self loathing because I put a weight loss goal for end of October because of an event.
PS: I did end up throwing it away. My son will be disappointed but he had some already too!

How about putting that red velvet cake in the freezer for now ? Cut it up into sensible sized portions and freeze the pieces. When you feel like a small portion, take one out and wait for it to thaw. This way, you still get to have a piece of the cake without over indulging in the entire thing.
Sharing some with co-workers or neighbors is another good idea.
Spark People isn't about deprivation. It's all about moderation and portion control. It's okay to have a piece of cake once in a while as long as you are mindful of the portion size.

Give some to a neighbor. Eat small amounts over the next few days until it gets to stale to eat. Or throw it away. :-)

If you really, truly, and actually want a piece of cake, then have a SMALL piece. And track it. Continue accountability, but don't forget to enjoy yourself.
However, if you're just eating it because you don't want it to go to waste, consider pawning it off on someone (coworkers, neighbors, etc) before it goes to your waist. Think about how far you've come!

Ugh! Had finally felt in control and broke a plateau until labor day! I want to eat the velvet cake I don't want to throw away! I am afraid my weight will be up on weigh day Monday!
