You're sitting at your desk, at work, minding your own business. Then a plate of fresh chocolate chip cookies appears under your nose. An innocent voice says "have one of my HOMEMADE cookies!"
How do you say no?
NO!!!!! - translation - no way you fool!! Can't you SEE that I am FAT and I am TRYING to loose weight and you're NOT helping me!! Get those @^!$%^^ cookies outta my face.
No thanks! - translation - thanks for offering those delicious cookies to me but I'm gonna pass at this time. We're still friends!
We get soooo mad when people offer us food. We think they're trying to sabotage our efforts to loose weight. But I bet they don't even remember that we're trying to loose weight or that we're gluten intolerant or that we're allergic to nuts. Or whatever!
Let's give each other a break. Let's grant some grace. Just say no thanks with a smile.
