Think Thin Thursday ~ Raising the White Flag on Halloween

Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

My abilities to fend off the urge to indulge were strong until I saw this staring at me from the kitchen counter:

Killer Cake

The external struggle is difficult enough but when the "Better Half" prepares a Halloween cake in the middle of the night while you're sleeping and this is what you wake up to what are you going to do? I just grin and bear it saying to her, "you're killing me". She responds with an "I know". I forgot to mention that I was once known as the Carbohydrate Kid. It's not easy being me! What's for breakfast?


Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” or “Let them eat cake.” is not a good response as Marie-Antoinette soon learned.


All Hallows Eve to Everyone

Good luck with your struggle.

I had implant surgery this week and am on a soft diet.  Cake is on the suggested foods list from the doctor.

Is he or she taking new patients? Sounds like my kind of Doctor Roy.

Candy I can push aside Anna, vanilla cake with vanilla icing is so nuch more difficult but I'm getting better at saying NO.

Wow, I would be tempted to have a bite of that too, it looks so delicious.  Perhaps she made it without sugar?

I wouldn't want to spoil the fun with artificial sweeteners. What would Grandma say? Eat It

Endre, I ended up with a sliver. Had to say goodbye to this one before it accompanied her to work. I have watched their feeding frenzies! It ain't pretty.
