Keya, You know what? there are plenty who are likely to disagree with me. But I think that having that chocolate cake on your birthday was good for you and your morale. You enjoyed it, you had no reaction, and now you can continue eating healthy. I dont know how some can be on this diet for a year, year and a half and not have a slice of cake for a birthday or a piece of pie around the holidays without going mental. I say good for you!
