    Step away from the cakes!!!!!

    You don't need them, an ounce of cake is 5.5 syns and you don't get much for an ounce believe me, I've weighed it!

    If you want something sweet try some lovely strawbs, i've just eaten some gorgeous British ones and they were so sweet.

    Don't undo your hard work, and you will be so pleased with yourself if you resist it! You'll only feel bad if eat it anyway.

    There is always biscuits in my office and it's a battle every single day not to have them, I am immensely proud if I resist!

    Remember, YOU have the power, YOU can do this!

    Your right, i walked in the kitchen, right past the yummy cream cakes and chocolate cake (that looked devine btw!) and got my mullerlight out the fridge and came back to my desk and i have eaten it and now i don't feel so drawn to the cakes....and proud i managed to avoid them. Just got to get through the rest of the day.

    This office is a nightmare for yummy cakes/biscuits etc, i think today is really bad as everyone is walking back from their desks with plates of cake!

    I will resist!!! i have to!!

    I remember watching 'Supersize Superskinny' on telly a while ago, and a woman on there regularly picked up a whole Victoria Sponge in her two hands and ate the whole thing like a sandwich! :p Imagine the syns in that!

    I have this morning made the scan bran carrot cake and have just had a slice for pudding. TOTALLY LUSH!!!!!

    I have been craving carrot cake since I started SW in January, and that really hit the spot! I cut the cake into quarters, so only 3 syns for a big, filling, yummy slice. Thanks for the idea! xx
