Thank God for children!

The other day my son came into my office with a very serious look on his face. I asked what was the matter. He replied, " Dad I have been thinking.. you know my birthday is coming up in a few months and I was wondering if you are going to still be doing this diet??" I replied, "Yes." He then said, " I feel so bad that you can't eat a birthday cake with me that I don't want a birthday cake. We can just skip it this year." Well needless to say I was touched... how many kids would be willing to give up that special cake that they get only once a year. ( he is 8 years old)

So I have decided that I will try to find a cake that I can eat with him and stay on play as it just reaffirmed the reason why I am changing my lifestyle and that is for me and my family.

Have a great day:)

PS if any one has a great cake recipe( low carb of course) please send it to me by March 1st. 2009.

Hehe that is great as you are at your goal weight.
I would read the book Body for Life... he talks about having a one free day (not a binge day) where you can enjoy some of your favorites in moderation. My birthday is in January and hopefully by then I will be able to enjoy one piece of my favorite pie.. sour cream lemon..which btw I am tinkering with a low carb version. I am stuck with a little strange aftertaste using splenda so I have some other sweeteners coming with the hope that I can combine half and half to rid the aftertaste. Its good as is but not great...
