It’s All About the Cake!

Today it’s all about chocolate pound cake with mini chocolate chips! I’ve been waiting months for this cake!

It had better be good! Even though it’s going to be day old cake because circumstances forced me to bake the cake yesterday instead of today.

But shhh, don’t tell the Weight Watchers Police!  I’ve been on Weight Watchers for 10 weeks and lost just over 12 pounds. Now I am stuck, and been stuck for a couple weeks. So frustrating! I really only want to lose about 6 more pounds, but it may not happen. I am not going to starve myself, and I can only realistically workout 2 to 3 times a week.

But today–I’m eating cake!

What are you eating?

    12 pounds is awesome! Congratulations. Sorry you’re stalled, but that happens sometimes. You’ll get those last 6 lbs. And if you don’t, well, 2/3 of your goal is still pretty great. =o)

    Since I’m headed out of town, I hoping to eat some really good food that I don’t have to cook. Seafood maybe. Mmm, scallops. You can’t get good seafood – okay, any good restaurant food – here in tiny town CO.

    B.E., Hope you have a great time out of town! I love eating food I don’t have to cook!

    Thanks on the weight loss. The hardest goal of all will be keeping it off :-)

    Birthday? Somebody mentioned the B word? Have a terrific day, witch and you eat every last bite of that cake! I’ve lost 14 pounds now so I’ll be eating more protein today. I have 16 pounds to go to my minimum goal weight, though I’d love to add another 10 to that! It’s also hotter’n Hades here so I want something cool. I’d bathe in whipped cream if I could get away with it… ;)

    I’m also chewing my fingernails. We’ll see if they have any nutritional value. Sent off a direct query today (with Secret Agent Lady’s approval). We’ll see what happens.

    Stay in and stay cool, witches!

    Happy Birthday! Wow, 12 pounds is great! It’s much better than mine! I’ve lost 14 with a goal of 25 more and haven’t lost a pound in 3 weeks! Plus its that glorious time of the month when all you want to do is eat cake and potato chips…..so not helping my weight loss goals! So to answer your question, I am eating everything! I can’t keep my hand out of the candy jar that is (or was) filled with reese’s pieces!

    Shiloh, 14 pounds is super good! Be proud of that!

    I know exactly what kind of day you’re having! But I have to say, those days have gotten easier for me in the last few years, not sure why. But maybe getting older does have some benefits!

    I just thought I would say CONGRATS 12 pounds is awesome keep up the good work and if u have to eat cake well enjoy. I am currently eating a skinny cow peaunt butter bar 110 calories. Although, not entirely healthy or what I was really craving which popcorn it the spot. I can’t have popcorn because even from a deep sleep my 5 year old and 3 year old will wake up begging for some. Good luck keep up the good work
