Altho, for the calories, there are so many other things I would rather eat than cake...
This weekend is my sister's graduation, and we're ordering a cake. My mom is going to get it today (Saturday), so we can have it both Saturday and Sunday. (And then she is coming home, so we will basically have it around til it's done). And then the next weekend is my sister's birthday, so we'll be having cake again. (And again, having it around until it's gone.)
So I casually made the comment, "Oh man, cake two weekends in a row.." to my mom. And she flew off the handle! She went off about how of course we are having cake for these occasions and that I can't eat perfect all the time and I need to learn how to incorporate things like that into my diet and how I can't be so strict for the rest of my life, yada yada.
Yes, I agree and I get it. But at the same time, I was a little annoyed that she came at me like that. I have really good motivation going lately, and I really want to lose this weight so I can get to the maintenance phase. I would like to get as close to my goal as possible by the time we move. 1) Because I have lots of time to focus on it right now, and 2) so when I start over in a new place, I can be close to where I want to be weight-wise.
It's an added temptation which I don't always welcome and/or love, but of course I will be having cake this weekend and next. I'll just have small pieces and (hopefully) not go overboard. Do you all ever feel like this when you have little control over what you'll be eating?
