Excuse – people are always bringing food to work. When I was working it seemed there was something in the break room every morning. Some people were just nice and fixed something to bring in, while others were simply getting rid of extra food. Either way, I always got my coffee when there was a chance something else would be there. The day after Halloween there was bowls of candy. One of my coworkers often brought in donuts. All this “free” food is hard to pass up. It was all helpful in making me obese. The easiest thing would have been to avoid the break room in the morning. I could have waited until 10:00 and got my coffee. I could have just ignored the food.
However, as you know, that’s difficult for weight challenged people to do. I know some people who never went to the break room, even when they announced over the loudspeaker that there was pizza in the break room. When I heard that announcement, I ran, well walked very fast. Pizza doesn’t last long in a break room nor does a cake or sweets. It’s just another challenge the weight loss dieter has to overcome, if he or she wants to make progress.
