A woman who was in our weight loss club was really upset that she had actually gained weight since joining the club.
During her latest weekly report, she said that she had made her family’s favorite cake over the weekend and the family had eaten half of it at dinnertime.
The woman continued to tell her story…
The next day, she said, she kept staring at the other half of the cake and it was torture.
Finally, she gave in and cut a thin slice of the cake for herself.
Well, one slice led to another and soon the whole cake was gone. Been there, done that, bet you have too!
The woman went on to tell the group just how upset she was with her lack of willpower and how she knew that her husband would be disappointed in her.
Everyone felt really sorry for her, knowing just how hard it was sometimes to be strong with the temptation of home made cake around.
Then, someone asked what her husband said when he found out.
The woman smiled. “Oh he never found out. I made another cake and ate half of that too!”
