Support or Greed....greed is winning!!!

Thursday, January 10, 2008

Okay, okay, I want to be supportive of others wanting to loss weight BUT the prize at my works Biggest Loser Contest is up to $850!!!! Now, I don’t really watch the show, but I have seen a few episodes where there are food challenges. So today I decided to “challenge” my diet buddies at work. I had yummy home made peanut butter cookies that a family member made me. I had a jar of mini candy bars and a box of Danishes that a company gave me. (Wondering how I got so fat now aren’t you) And I have a friend who works in the dietary department who gave me, on my request, a yummy serving of cherry cobbler with ice cream. I past these loving treats to several diet buddies who were strong, faced the challenge and won….but I found the weakest link in a fellow nurse. I gave her a mini milky way, she ate it. I gave her some gourmet chocolate, she ate it. I gave her the cherry cobbler…..guess what…..SHE ATE IT! Part of me feels bad for not supporting her more. But $850, COME ON!
Well at least venting my deep seeded though quickly fading guilt to my Spark Peeps makes me feel a little better if not amused  I’m going to view this as a cleansing. An absolution of my sins, I’ve confessed, I feel better.  Thanks Spark People!!!

    As long as you're giving the sweetsaway you're not taking them in. That leaves room for the healthy stuff. Good for you!!! I'm anxious to see how things go with you. :)

    LOL! This made me chuckle... But hey, $850 is some kind of incentive. Stay strong and keep sharing all that junk... Either way, you'll come out a winner!
