How To Say No Thanks To A Friend Carrying Cake

We all have friends who mean well.

We love them dearly, but when that friend keeps popping in for a coffee and brings a yummy cake (even though she knows you are losing weight), there comes a time when you have to say NO!

Saying NO to a close friend can be tricky as you don’t want to upset her, but you don’t want to eat the cake either!

To achieve your goal weight and to maintain your weight, you will have to learn how to handle situations like this.

Your friend thinks she is being nice (and she is), what you need to do is redirect the ‘niceness’.  How about you meet up for a coffee in a cafe that is a short walk from your house?  That way you will get a walk in as well as a coffee!  Meeting in a cafe means you can subtly say to your friend ‘Thanks, but no cake for me I’m losing weight” before she buys it.

Another option you have is to recruit her for support.  She is a good friend and can help you on your journey.  She can keep you accountable, she can join you on your journey, she can be there to give you strength.

In this weeks edition of Weight Loss Wednesday I discuss this tricky situation and tell you how to handle it.

In the comments below, tell me your best way of saying “Thanks But No Thanks” to your bestie.

    I have this exact problem Kaz. How did you know? She only means well, we have had a french pastry and coffee every friday for years. My thighs are proof! Time you stop this and take the chatter to the footpath.
    Great stuff Kaz. x

    I had this too and it is hard. I cancelled a couple of coffee met ups and gave the excuse of working out. Then I said that I missed our chats and could we walk and talk instead. Funny thing is she has wanted to lose weight for ages too. Thanks Kaz… this episode really helped me (and my bestie too) xx – Jen

    A friend put me onto your site Kaz… where have you been all my life!! 😉

    Good common sence that we all need to be told regularly. You do make me laugh too!

    I walk a lot with my friends and we chat… and watch the shirtless footballers in the evenings!
