Keeping it simple/light/deflecting like you did is key!
I am constantly amazed by so many people on this forum who encounter other people that try to sabotage our weight loss efforts. I've been lucky, I've not run into this yet. Good point about the diabetic comparison, Lisa! I have thought that if I run into this, I could tell somebody that I have an allergy and if I eat that food, I will swell up! After all, that is certainly true!
