Mandieterrier1. You are too funny...... I, too, am pretty cautious about my food and its source. I was at friends house and witnessed the cat (long haired fluffy type) walking on the table and the counter and food prep areas....that did it for me.....no more food from that house. I just imagine everyones pet contaminating the food prep areas....LOL. makes it really easy to decline the treats from home

The offices where my 2 adult children work have banned bringing food in, and also all the birthday and so forth celebrations that tend to occur, maybe one day that kind of thing will happen.
I have a really sweet friend in our office who is only happy when she is planning a huge dinner party, her annual cookie party, one of the 25 or so other parties they have throughout the year, or a wedding, funeral, baby or wedding shower. This woman lives to plan and prepare food for the festivities. Unfortunately, she has known me for several years and knows just what I like. Combine that with her need to mother everyone and she becomes a Super Feeder. I love her to pieces but she is constantly bringing in goodies that she has left over from one party or another. On one hand she is very supportive of my efforts. She encourages me to walk on my break, always telling me if the weather is nice out or if I need to walk inside. She compliments my strength when I turn down treats, yet she always wants to feed me. *sigh* I just take what I can add into my tracker and pass on the rest.
Add that to the doughnuts my boss brings in and I sometimes feel like I am swimming in a sea of destruction. But you know what? I can do it!

i don't work in an office however on a slow day at work if i stay in the kiosk i'm surrounded by chips lollies chocolates and ice cream. I deal with it by keeping myself busy ....doing extra chores that really don't have to be done.
You can do it!! What helps me is to look at the ingredient list (obviously only works for the packaged goodies). Forty eight ingredients I can't pronounce?? Pass.

Did your office gremlins bring in all their holiday goodies this week? We have a credenza located right outside my office door which seems to be breeding chocolate and other treats. I'm having a hard time walking past. Must...have...strength......
