I’ve almost made it to the week mark on my current, short-term diet plan. I think I’ve held up quite well under all the temptations that have been coming my way, especially since most people around me don’t even know I’m “dieting”. Then I came into a morning meeting at work. Not just any meeting, a meeting purely for social reasons for all the new staff (my department has gone through some transitions) to get to know each other. A meeting with food. Yummy food. I urged the temptation to grab a chocolate chip bagel. I bypassed the bowl of succulent fruit. But I gave in a little by having a tiny glass of orange juice.
I continued on my day doing so well. Then my boss came back and said to me….”I have Kit Kats”. I said, “thanks, but I don’t want a Kit Kat.” She returned a moment later and tossed one on my desk. She wasn’t taking no for an answer. So I was forced (well just decided) to post the sign below at my desk. Yes, now everyone knows I’m “dieting”. *Sigh*
