Diets and the Workplace

Somebody brought in bags of goodies this morning add deposited them on a work table in the marketing department.  I guess they felt we need to get all sugared up before we could be really creative. How thoughtful!

Seriously though, I’ve been doing well at maintaining 185 lbs but I’d really love to get it down to 179 or less. Big bags of yummy treats that sit on a table nearby seem to call my name like a lover in a sweet wine dream. This is not a good thing and it’s why diets don’t work.

For me, it’s a life change in eating habits. Not wanting to deny myself, I had a big, green gummy fish and four jelly beans. It was yummy and enough to satisfy. Plus it fits right in with my Mary Poppins philosophy about eating: Enough is as good as a feast. Which works great if you know what enough is.

Anyway, do what I do. Don’t diet. Change the way you eat. Don’t deny yourself but don’t over do it. Take baby steps or baby bites, whichever works. And if you fall off the wagon, simply jump back on again.

  1. My co-workers brought cupcakes to work today. Really? Two of them today. There are only 5 people in my office and 2 men brought in cupcakes. WTH. I am avoiding eating one because I am trying to lose weight and eat healthier.

  2. You are indeed right, good sir. After doing this for 3 years and losing 30 pounds a year, there’s no other way to do it. Easy? No, but completely doable.
