    Okay so here's my scoop for you, and you can take it or leave it LOL!! ;) This is just based on my experiences, but the thing of it is, people learn how to treat you... Before I was doing something about my weight, people liked to give me goodies, they always knew I was ordering dinner at work (one person has to go get it for everyone since we can't leave) and they would make sure to ask me because they knew I ALWAYS ordered food. Then I started this healthy journey and I said no to a lot of stuff. Now it is to the point where they ask (because they HAVE to ask everyone) but they are already walking away before I get out my "no thanks", because the NEW me doesn't typically order dinner or partake in treats. Do I sometimes do it? Absolutely. So you need to decide what is normal for the new you. If it was normal for the old you to always have donuts or always do this or that, that is what people know of you. Which might be why your dad brought you the donut, if that was always something you thought was "nice and thoughtful", that is what he thinks as well. But if the new you is serious about getting healthy, you will learn to turn things down SOMETIMES (not all the time, as you said being deprived isn't good), and they will learn that you don't ALWAYS indulge in treats. They will also ask less frequently so you won't be tempted.

    Working in treats is easy, I find it easier for exmaple if my meal plan is 1200 that way I have 300 extra to get to my 1500 limit and can use that for "fun stuff", you just have to plan for it. And shooting a little lower for those "surprises" helps too. I really want to see you do well, I know you have a lot of rough times, but I hope you get to the breaking point where you want this so badly nothing can stop you, because you TRULY DESERVE THIS!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm so glad that it worked for me now! Your work place looks lovely and so functional. I hope you have tons of good memories and alot less stress from being there with your parents. emoticon I have to tell you, from my own experience, that being strong is when we tell the person that you can't eat that and explain to him that you're trying to get healthy. He could still bring you something healthy or flowers like someone else said. He'll get it straight when you be firm and when he sees you looking thinner and lithe, he'll know that you're serious! Yes, I believe in a treat every now and then. You know, some Skinny Cow candy bars are yummy and you could easily count that with no problem if you allow for it. Also, the Skinny Cow ice cream bars and WW ice cream bars are yummy too and count easily. Skinny Cow has a wafer type chocolate candy bar that just melts in your mouth! WW has these Raspberry Dark Chocolate sherbet bars that are so yummy this time of the year. WW has a ice cream bar that mimics the Snickers ice cream bars kind of, and so yummy for a sneak-in treat. You can see that I love my treats too! Good luck to you and emoticon with the strength you have had this far! You deserve a pat on the back! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Why would your Dad bring you a donut? I don't think that was thoughtful as you called it. I actually think it was unthoughtful. Sorry, I know it's your Dad but. . . . You need to tell him not to bring you donuts or anything unhealthy. Have him bring you beautiful summer fruit or flowers for your desk. Also it has to be your responsibility to say thanks but no thanks to the donut and give it back to him.

    You're young and this is the time to get the weight off before medical problems happen. Maybe start a new tradition at work (you said your parents own the company) and go for a walk for a half hour after lunch with your Dad. Have him contribute to his daughter getting healthy. The best gift he can give you.

    Good luck

    Top notch business facility! It is beautiful! Hopefully, you won't have all the stress and worry that came with your previous jobs and you can put more focus on getting healthy. Oh, did I spy a Longaberger basket on that counter? I am a lover of them! You look so happy and vibrant, keep up the good work! emoticon

    I'm finding out that when I checked around 4 of vlogs this morning, none of them worked, so maybe it's SP's problem?! Just a thought. emoticon
