Here I am, doing great on a low-carb diet for about a week (most of which was a holiday) and lost about a kilogram, my first day back at work my co-worker surprises me with my FAVORITE sugary coffeeshop beverage. I know she didn’t intend to mess me up, I don’t look overweight and I haven’t told almost anyone I’m dieting, and she sits next to me in a tiny office so I can’t exactly throw it away… but UGH I was doing so good today until now!!! TT_TT
Does anyone ever drive you crazy like this?

What a sweet co-worker you have! But I totally get your frustration. The same thing happens to me when I’m on a good streak with my eating (calorie counting) and my husband asks if I want to go out for dinner. We’re usually boring homebodies, so I hate to pass up a chance to go out. I understand that (in theory ;)), there are ways to limit calories when eating at restaurants, but once I look at a menu, I hardly ever resist ordering whatever sounds the most appealing to me. I think it’s healthy to throw in treats every once in a while, but it sounds like this time you were coerced, haha. Good luck with your eating plan!

Bebealways: You could always drink half, you still get the enjoyment but half the calories, nobody need know you are on a diet and you are not offending your co worker.
MissAusten: Agreed, the best way to diet is to allow yourself these little treats every now and again. Moderation is key with everything.
Happy dieting ladies

I am just starting out on my diet (second week) and every day it seems like someone is bringing cakes or biscuits in to work. Aaaaargh…i struggle with my willpower enough without being surrounded by yummy treats lol.
In the end, i’ve had to tell everyone i’m on a strict diet so now they’re secretly hiding the treats away from me bless them.

Bebealways: Yup! I think my office is out to make every single person break their diet! Every single day, there is some combination of snacks, Chick-Fil-A, Panera, muffins, donuts, salads… everything! It is SO hard to have self control around here!

Oh man, that’s hard. I completely understand!
I think I would sip it with tiny or fake sips for a while, then toss it and pretend you finished it.

Bebealways: I know exactly what you mean! Although both my mom and grandma know that I eat paleo-ish they aren’t super good with nutrition and are alwasy makign me things that I don’t eat. It’s so so nice of them and they have the best of intentions, but a lot of it gets pawned off on my husband (or devoured guiltily be me).
