This happens too me alot at work too.. last time there was a potluck, EVERYTHING had meat in it.. yay.. I dont eat meat. Yesterday, however, my boss brought in doughnuts, dunkin doughnuts.. all different glazes and and fillings. They looked so pretty. Mind you.. where I work we have big cubicles called "pods" well your whole team sits in one "pod" and there were the doughnuts.. 10 paces to my left all day. Didnt eat a single one. I did have some coffee with half and half.. so my sugar intake was not good yesterday and I went over cals by 25 ( OooOOooO) and went over my carbs.. so low carb day today
Anyways... here is how I over come...
I tell evvvveryone on my team that I am not eatting it.. that way I wont because they will say " thought you werent blah blah..." also I will calculate the calories in it.. 9 times out of 10 thats the kicker. That will keep me away. I am a calorie counter. AS for vending machines.. I dont bring money to work.. plain and simple. I dont really have a problem with vending machines because A) its a conscious decision to think about and pick out what I want ( nothing healthy is ever in a vending machine) B) Free food is my problem, not vending. Another thing though at my work we do have those oatmeal express things in there so on the rare occassion that I *do* have money.. and if I am starving.. I will buy it. Do you have a vending machine at alll that has the bigger things like the oatmeal, fruit cups, tuna packs ( tuna salad ready made, little can 1million cals)
I know most people are secretive about their weightloss.. not me.. I am loud and proud.. I try to make everyone around me conscious that I am staying away.. I have 18lbs left to lose.. yadda yadda.. most of them just laugh at me and say " oh no.. heaven forbid.. not 18lbs" lol But it helps me, just the fact of people knowing and then seeing me "cheat" I cant even stand the thought. ANywho.. thats my tales from the office! Good luck girly!
PS Things didnt have calories when I was eatting alone either lol but then I started cal counting and I was FLOORED at how much food I can eat and NOT gain weight.. just maintain.. but I was confused as to why I wasnt losing.. *silly girl* ( me not you)
