Weight Loss Support - The Giant Cupcake is Calling My Name...

and it won't shut up!!!!!:tantrum:

My friend brought me a regular sized cupcake, perched on top of a giant cupcake. I indulged, ate the smaller one, logged it in my diary, and accounted for the calories...I did everything I am suppose to, right?

Now the giant cupcake sits in the fridge at work and it's all I can think about. The easy solution should be to just throw it away and be done with it. I'm having trouble finding the strength or reasoning to do it. It's a perfectly good cupcake...I could eat it tomorrow....but why would I want to eat it tomorrow? I've indulged today, that should be enough, right?

Please help "slap" some sense into me and please help me understand why it's ok to throw away a perfectly tasty cupcake. I would offer it to someone else in the office but the heat melted the icing so it slid off the side, it's not pretty, lol.

Put it out on the counter and your co-workers will eat it. That works here at my job at least no matter what it tastes or looks like!

give it to your co-workers.

And now that you've tasted the small one, I bet it wasn't quite as good as you imagined anyway! Stuff like that rarely is, at least for me.

I just went and checked, someone cut a little chunk out of it. *whew*

Thanks everyone! I feel great for not having eaten it myself and not throwing it away!

Throw it away. You didn't buy it. Don't sabotage yourself and binge. If it's tempting you this much, dump some soap on it and put it in the trash.
