WTG resisting temptation. I struggle with cravings that just won't go away, too.

Don't purchase bad food for other people.. Transfering bad habits can sometimes backfire.. If I want my oldest kid to loss weight I don't keep purchasing crap because I think it will please him..

It doesn't when his expensive jeans don't fit anymore.. I don't eat bad stuff or encourage others.. If they want it be my guest go buy it yourselfs..

This one is a tricky one but when we can't have stuff sometimes we forget old habits and do it to other people..

You can contribute to the office.

Thanks for all the posts. I decided to forgo the donut and just ignored them the rest of the day. Once I really concentrated on doing some work, I didn't have the opportunity to obsess. Phew! I'm glad I was able to practice some self control!

Honestly I'd just throw them away. I wouldn't want to tempt anyone else's diet.

Hee! You are correct on most "low fat muffins" I guess I should have stated, muffins off of recipes on here. I should know Im making 60 low cal pumkin carrot muffins to bring home for Thanksgiving...only 65 cal, low sugar but thats made from scratch and using applesauce and whole wheat flour. It would be a great alternative, but it is not something one can "pop" into a store and buy!

I agree with the previous poster about bringing in healthy snacks, although I am definitely guilty of bringing doughnuts to school for everyone.

Just a side note - most low fat muffins are PACKED with sugar so you won't really save any calories. I would rather just eat the doughnut.

Hmm for me the bigger question would be, why doughnuts? If you wanted to bring in something, why not something that would help you to reach your goals, but yet be a treat for others? For example, some kind of low fat muffins? That way even if you were left with all of them, they'd be something you could save and take home with you.

IF you have an office frige, put them in ziplock baggies and freeze them :) A 10-15 second nuke in the micro and they can be eaten another time. I struggle with wasted food too, but being able to freeze and not waste helps me. Plus you can justify only eating one :)

So I decided that since today is basically a Thursday, I would bring in donuts to celebrate our short week. Well, I wasn't thinking straight because half the people at work have taken the week off. Soooo, there are lots of leftover donuts. Though they're not in my office, I know where they are and have made trips by them. I want a second one even though I know I really don't need it. Yes, I could fit it in my calorie range and still be able to have a decent dinner, but gah! I don't need it!

I'm not sure what to do. I wish someone else would just eat them because I've literally been obsessing about them all day.
