Disaster with the decorator - Page 3

post #31 of 77
I just had to jump in with my 2-cents worth! icon_smile.gif

I'm a guy, and when I had my business a few years ago I actually LOST weight. I found that I had no time for lunch and ran around so much that the pounds dropped off without me doing a thing. Now that I've been back in the 9-5 workplace and sit on my butt all day, I've gained about 25 lbs. and can't seem to drop it. I'm seriously thinking of quitting the 9-5 (though in this economy, quitting any job is ludicrous) and going back into some kind of manual labor just so I can lose the weight! lol icon_biggrin.gif

I have to say that when I made and sold home made chocolates, candy,fudge etc I never wanted to eat it. I never gained weight. I think just the smell of it all day was enough.
Even with the cakes and cookies, icing now I dont care to eat it. I try a sample of a new recipe and then forget about it. Plus its not like you can take a slice out of a cake that you have made for someone else and send it out with a piece missing!
Its like when I cook dinner by the time Im done Im really not hungry for it, thats why I like to eat out so much, Im ready to eat then !

Ufff mifffff gonfa smuuuuf! (Sorry, hard to talk with my mouth full of cookies and creme fluff! I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY!!!!) hehehe.

Cookieman, I totally get what you're saying. I really don't eat much of what I bake. It's for orders, so, ya know... you can't really eat that. My problem is that with all the recovery from having two c-sections I haven't gotten back into the work-out swing of things. And trying to keep up with these two... well... that doesn't leave much extra energy. But I'm thinking of 'letting' my DH get a Wii, because it has fitness games! Sounds like fun! But yes, sitting at that desk will do it to you. That happened to me too when I went from being a floor manager running like a headless chicken, to being a web programmer, sitting on my duff.

I started decorating only in October but I have made tons and tons of cakes, cupcakes, cookies, truffles, chocolate, brownies, you name it. In all that, I am extremely proud to say that I have recently LOST 12 pounds and am back to being a size 5-7. BUT I am only 23 and 5'7, 150 pounds with a big booty lol. Anyway, I don't really have the desire to eat a lot of the stuff. My fav has always been brownies, but other than that, I'm not really into eating sweets, only making them icon_smile.gifI am sure a lot of you are so over exaggerating and I bet y'all are gorgeous!!!!

You know I know exactly what everyone is talking about...I don't eat much of my own cakes or desserts and I make a lot of them. But when I go somewhere (ie: out to eat, to the grocery store or where ever) if they have anything that looks interesting I buy it and eat it just to see what it tastes like and if I can make it myself. so needless to say since I have started cake decorating I have put on 20 lbs myself. I try to justify it by saying its a learning experience that is making me buy and eat and then re-make these desserts but my ever growing large butt and thighs just isn't having any sympathy. lol

Oh Melvira, I am so there! I've had 3 c-sections and used to be an avid exercise type person (what are those kind of people called?). It really wasn't fair either, I started caking when I was still nursing my baby so I didn't need to worry about the extras I was eating! But let's see, since I stopped nursing I believe I've packed on a good 18 lbs. I lost 5 of it just from MAKING myself not eat those scraps but OH MAN it's hard!!

icon_lol.gif I love hearing that I'm not alone! Well, thanks to the YMCA, hopefully I can curb the chub.

As for the stoning.... I cracked up icon_eek.gif oh how I miss those days.

Thanks for all the support (even those that wanted to smack me for whining about being a size 8.)

Lots of Love

Oh, I feel your pain. I am happy at a size 10. I'm not a size 10 at the moment, but I don't believe it's the cake. I don't eat the cakes I make except on rare occasions. Usually I give them away. If I do eat it, it's just one piece and I only make cakes here and there. I'm not a steady baker, unfortunately. Two things add to my demise: a wonderful, healthy, happy relationship (finally!!) and a sit-on-my-butt-all-day job. Okay, three things: middle age spread. I don't eat any more now or any worse now (actually, probably better) than I did when I was younger. (I'm 42) For some darned reason, though, now it sticks! Oh well..........

I'd be willing to bet that if we took an age survey, the younger we are the thinner. Of course if you're 20 you'll be smaller than you are when you get older! Regardless of how thin you are naturally, you're going to gain some weight as you get older, your metabolism just slows down regardless of what you do.

Even the kids I knew who were rail-thin in high school are now looking "normal" weight.

Eating a lot of cake doesn't help, either, but I prefer potato chips, and aren't those vegetables? icon_twisted.gif

Maybe it's my size 12 butt talking, but I have a question...

In what Universe is a size 5 THREE sizes from an 8? Where I live, a 5 is a 5/6 and an 8 is a 7/8, therefore, you've only gone up ONE size. I mean, 1 is a lot better than 3, right? icon_biggrin.gif

I've never seen a 6/7 anywhere either. And brands that make sizes in single numbers do it either all even or all odd...I've never seen a brand that has a 5, 6, 7, and 8. It's either a 5 to 7 or a 6 to 8.

Or am I missing something?

I've seen them all, in all kinds of departments. lol 5s, 6s, and 5/6s.

Either way, it's unfortunate the OP put on some weight, but I was just confused on the "three sizes" thing.
