Well, that was a kind gesture from your friend ! What to do ? Take a few home for you and your family to enjoy. Remember, as long as you practice portion control, there is absolutely no reason you can't enjoy a cookie or two during the holidays. Spark People isn't about deprivation. It's all about moderation and portion control.
So, why not put a handful in a baggie and leave the rest out for your co-workers in the break room. This way, everyone gets to enjoy the cookies and you don't feel an urge to eat all 50.
