It's someones birthday in my office and they have bought cakes, I'm ignoring them and having water though.

People are being all 'oh just have one, or a half of one it won't matter' and are really dense about the whole 'yes it will' comments I'm making, they just won't accept it that I don't want one (well I do but I'm making a positive choice not to have one)

Rant over.
Water please!

Good for you!

It is my birthday next month. I am not sure what to do. I haven't told anyone at work I'm on CD (and would rather keep it that way) but we make a big deal of birthdays here and I know there will be cake. Not quite sure how I am going to get out of that one!

You're doing the right thing hun, just say you don't want to tempt yourself into anything more.

Think of those scales on W.I. day when you have stuck to it 100% - keep going hun :) xx

Oh god I share your pain. I don't know exactly how many people there are on my floor, must be about 200 ish, divided up into four groups. By virtue of my role i 'look after' all four groups and thus am on all four group email distribution lists. I swear not a day goes by without someone coming back from holiday with goodies, having a birthday, buying krispy kremes 'because its a wet tuesday in august' or similar. What makes it double worse is that the 'usual place' for one of my groups is RIGHT outside my office door. I confess, last week I could not resist the mini rice crispy cakes.

Usually I just delete the emails and ignore and feel smug.

HUH! it's someone else's birthday today, and even though they know I'm on a diet they've been trying to force stuff down my gob - again :eek: !
And I carried the basket in the supermarket that was chocka full of goodies ...... birthdays should be banned :mad: !

Apart from my own of course, and anyone on the forums, because we deserve them :D
