For the first time in ages, I turned down cookies at work. I was actually rather annoyed that my colleague asked me if I wanted any. She knows I’m concentrating on eating only what I bring for myself to eat. I turned down lunch in the office (sandwiches from Jason’s) so that I could stick to my guns on this. But she offered anyway. And she’s on a diet! WTF?
Anyway, my “no, thank you” was the first overt step I’ve made to extract myself from the food culture at work. It was hard today – lots of food in the office, but I held strong. I brought my food with me and that’s what I wanted to eat, not something someone else chose for me. The more I say “no, thank you” the easier this will be come.
