When I was 11 years old I was about 5 foot tall and weighed over 150 lbs. That same year I was tired of being unmercifully teased at school and decided to go on a diet and become more physically active. Thankfully, I started growing about the same time; I know God answered my prayers and helped me lose weight. Well, that same year I thought it was a good idea to bake cookies to give as Christmas gifts. It was the first time baking by myself (after all, I was a big girl now) and also the first time making cut out cookie shapes. When they came out of the oven Mom looked at them and said I should have gotten fresh baking powder and baking soda so that the cookies would rise properly during baking. Even though they were smaller, flat, and a little crispier they still tasted good. When it came time to give the gifts as each one opened their gift I told them I put the cookies on a diet because I was on one too, and that is why the cookies were flat. Then I explained that the cookies were smaller to help everyone not gain so much weight during the holidays. Only Mom and I knew what really happened and I know she’d never tell….. After more than forty years I remain in the lower range BMI index and promised myself I would never be over weight and out of shape again, and with God’s help I know it will be so.

Good story. You gave a reason and stuck to it with no one to argue. I'll bet they consumed every morsel of those cookies
