LA Weight Loss - Birthday question
05-15-2007, 10:08 AM
Good morning! I have a couple of questions - it is my birthday today, and I have read in the book and in the tip cards that I can have a "slice of birthday cake" - but I was just curious: EXACTLY what size is this? I don't want to go too big (I am a huge CAKE girl - my sister calls me "the cake lady" -)

Not sure on the cake.. Whenever Liz and I indulge, we simply go very small...
For your birthday, my present to you is that you may have a good size pinch of real salt, but please, use the good stuff.. Kosher or Sea salt only!! :lol:

when it was my daughters birthday they told me it was 1/12 of a cake......... I said, "what size cake???" but I would go small too. plus I think they said that size was 2 starch 2 fat. so maybe 1/24 would be better 1 starch 1 fat. I am guessing 1/12 to be about 2 1/2 inches by 1 inch?????

Just looked at my tip card ...it doesn't say how big if a slice but my guess would be a 1/8th slice....just a thin slice it says 2 starch 1 fat
tip cards are also on www.lafreetolive.com
Or you could make your own I seen a recipe for a cake
one pre mixed cake mix ex dunkin hines and a can of diet coke 12 oz no eggs or oil bake as directed on box top with ff cool whip

I don't know the answer, but I can guarantee that it is smaller than you think.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes! Wrongway, happy early birthday to YOU! Dan, ooooohhhhhhhh....that is the BEST PRESENT EVER!!!!!
I have truly missed my salt more than sweets (and I never thought that was possible!) Thank you to all - I decided that 2 S, 1 F was not worth it - so I am literally taking my son's "baby spoon" (as in:used to feed baby food) and taking that much only so it won't be "bad luck" (our family's tradition is you have to have a piece of your own b'day cake or it's bad luck for a year...)

^^ preferrably not at the same time. :lol:
Back in highschool, as a prank on one of my fellow football players, I took a piece of cake we were having at a pre-game dinner, split it between the layers and dumped salt on the frosting in between... We made sure he got that piece and sat back to watch the reaction...
Before you scold me, I was justified.. He had secretly poured orange soda onto my baked potato earlier during dinner.. It kind of blended in color-wise with the butter, so I didn't notice it till I ate a mouthful...
