Many people see a gift or offering of food as an expression of love. My grandmother for example (god rest her soul). She would give me all manner of tasty, homemade treats. I loved her for it.

They aren't handing you trigger foods because they want to see you fail. They are handing them to you, because they know you like those foods.

Tell them you appreciate the gift, and then save it for later...or give it to someone who wants it. It's okay to say "I'm not hungry right now, but I will enjoy this later."

I know it can be frustrating when you have people around you that seem to be working against you and your goals. We have this article on how to defend yourself against diet saboteurs that you may find helpful:
. I also found this message board thread that other members discuss how they handle people who try to sabotage you:

Hopefully you can find some tips in there!

Often I feel that I'm being under-run... I don't know if it's for jealousy or straight-out "conspiracy theory". I try to let people know that I'm losing weight, yet they keep offering me my "trigger foods".

I'm so disappointed and frustrated.

Any advice? I don't want to name names :(
