There Is Pound Cake In My House: A Real Life Q&A

Hey, friends -

Here’s a short and sweet Q&A that happened in my Coaching Club a few weeks ago.

How many times has this happened to you:

You throw a party, or have a few people over, and it’s fun and wonderful and everyone has a great time. But then, once everyone leaves, you discover that YOU are left with all the uneaten party food.

And it’s tempting.

And it taunts you.

And you know it’s going to be a problem to have it in the house.

Here’s the question from one of our club members, followed by my response.

Real Life Q&A From The HHCC.


My sister left the lion’s share of a lemon pound cake at my house. Grrrr. I know I should toss it but I hate to throw away food.

And here’s how I answered:

Check it out: There are only a few ways for that pound cake to leave your house -

  1. Give it away.
  2. Throw it away.
  3. Put it in your body.

Can you give it away? After all, that’s kinda what your sister did (!). She gave it away - to you!!

Who do you know who might enjoy some pound cake?

Or maybe you could freeze it for the next time you have guests?

You could also choose to eat it and ‘get it out of the house’ that way. If you go that route, however - if you eat things because you don’t know what else to do with them, or because you just want them to be gone - that kind of turns you into a human disposal system of sorts - and I wonder if that’s who you really want to be?

Your mission to get healthy and lose weight is more important than the future of a half-eaten loaf of lemon pound cake. If only one of you can survive, I choose YOU!

Do you?
