Someone brought in krispy kremes.

They are my favorite. My absolute favorite. They're in the kitchen, which I don't necessarily have to pass by but obviously, it's easy to take a jaunt over there. Should I tell everyone else in the office and encourage them to go have one so they're all gone? or is that rude? LOL. better them than me. No, I'm kidding! I do need some help though.

Hang in there - go brush your teeth, eat a breath mint - drink a glass of water. You can resist! My problem is one wouldn't be enough, so it's best for me to just not go there. You can do it!

Look at the nutritional value before you have them and think long and hard about the following...

1. Can you fit it into your calorie and fat gram limits for the day?
2. Is it going to energize your body or is there better fuel you could give your body?
3. Think of your body storing it as fat in one of your problem areas - such as hips - is it worth it???
4. It is a high glycemic food - a food group we should avoid at all cost.

I could go on...

Lots of reasons NOT to have one!!

Blozzom :-)

I say tell everyone, that way you're motivated to avoid guilty looks from other peopleif they see you have something you're not supposed to! :)

Everything in Moderation

Don't torture yourself! This may seem like horrible advice, but I think by the end of the day you'll thank me :)

Have that donut!!! Unless you've been over indulging left and right, there is no reason to deprive yourself. Haven't you learned...this can lead to over eating later? Besides, It's Friday! And I had a Krispy Kreme donut this morning, now I know I won't go nuts later thinking about the darn donut!

So if you can't stop thinking about it, go have one, just don't polish off the box!

OP here. I mentioned to some of the guys in my office that they were there. by the time I went back, 1/2 the box was gone which was nice! I had a 1/2 because I wanted it (sorry if I let anyone down) but it was really good. I haven't gone back luckily because my boss dumped something that had to be done last week on me. I think by the time I go back there won't be many there because it's lunchtime. At least if I go back and have another 1/2, I'll have only had one whole one. Thank you for all of the advice, I love having people here listening.

I get sent candy, chocolate, cookies, etc all the time, in my business and when I get it, I automatically put it out for everyone to indulge, so I don't have to stare at them all day, as they call my name. It feels good after they're gone, to know that i didn't cave.

You didn't let anyone down by eating 1/2 a donut. I'm glad you didn't deprive yourself, yet were able to enjoy a small portion of it. You should be proud of yourself!!!!!!!!!!

Good advice

I'm sure your donut worries are over by this point in the day, but for the future, my dad once told me this when I wanted some ridiculous chocolate cake and it stuck with me:

Think about it. In about 1 minute (less if you're me) that donut (cake, whatever) will be done and you'll just feel guilty. You wont even taste it anymore. Still worth it?

Sometimes it is...often, not so much :)
