I share an office with a fellow who's always got a jar of sweets (generally chocolate!) to share with everyone. Doesn't bother me though, as I've done without sweets for so long, I just go about my work while EVERYONE swoops in for the kill...lol!

Sometimes when we've been given some sweets by well-intended friends or family I bring the contraband into the office and put it out in the kitchen for others. My DW is diabetic and I am a severe carbo-holic...no carbs anywhere around me if I can help it! Once in a while my DW will enjoy some NSA chocolate and I'll treat myself to a piece. As soon as I do I'm sorry, as I've awoken the tiger inside who wants to DEVOUR IT ALL! It's easier for me not to have any.

i work in mental health and many of our patient's families don't even think of saying thank you in words or with some sort of gift for the workers- i know that the temptation is very strong to eat what is available- but maybe you cna bring some of those very veggies you'd love to have!

I wish I could send treat to other caregivers. I will often put some aside for the (overlooked)night shift.

Ths goodies seem to arrive when I am very ready to stress eat and they are very hard to resist. During Christmas week, my patient assignment was right next to the kitchen. There was so much sweet stuff you could smell it in my patient's rooms!...and I ate quite a bit of it.

Don't worry about the doughnuts...just try to eat more veggies tomorrow to make up for it.

Why does it seem like there is always food at the hospital from families? I was having a very stressful day today at work and was offered Hershey's Kisses. I really could have used some chocolate but I was afraid if I started I wouldn't stop.

I've never had families bring in a great salad or really nice looking fruit. Is this why nurses have trouble losing weight?

Thanks for listening...I just needed to rant a bit!
