The thing is to eat less and exercise more.

No matter how many commercials I see for miracle pills, plans, diets, cleansing plants, creams, rubs, etc.

It all comes back to eat less and exercise more. This is what is has always had to be.

Specific to this shrinking outing... my plan is to eat less cake. Must get the cake problem under control. But I'm not willing to live a cake-less existence forever, so I shall have to come to some sort of detante with the cake. I cannot let it win. I am not willing to let it go. We shall find some sort of accomodation eventually.

With a significant cake reduction and the continuation of my regular exercise plan as well as the Roller Derby, I will get to the goal.

The "eat less, exercise more" idea is the first law of thermodynamics. ACK! Physics!

sorry, geek humor.

I too need to engage in sweets reduction.

Don't mean to put you on the spot or anything, but how severe is this cake addiction? One slab a day? Two per sitting? I must know.

Hee Hee... Well I guess it's not THAT bad. But I had gotten into the habit of picking up a piece of cake any time I hit the Harris Teeter... which means that if we only did grocering on Saturday, it was one piece. But if we went back again Sunday... that makes it two.

And the HT, they do not skimp on pieces of cake. Plus, the ice cream. I would guess, if I had to guess, that a cake and ice-cream runs about 800, 900, maybe 1000 calories?

Which is NOT something one should be eating on a "regular" basis.

Cake once a week is part of a healthy eating plan!

It's the ice cream that's killer.
