    Mmmmm...... sweeties!!
    Today I have spent about an hour and a half making individual bags of pic-n-mix to give out in our office tomorrow for a little celebration day we're having.
    Packing up 200 little paper bags from the huge tubs from cash and carry, making sure the right number of each sweet was included too. They smelt amazing!!!

    And... I managed to only eat 5 :angel09:

    Just wondered if you had any horrible jobs you've had to do which are torture when you're trying to stick to plan... ?

    Not me personally, but there is a woman that goes to our group that does amazingly well considering she works in a well known high street bakery chain!!! That would KILL me.

    I work shifts and on nights shifts everyone brings in cakes, biscuits, sweets and crisps and the whole table covered in temptation is within reaching distance. Especially bad when you are tired and bored and hungry....

    I used to work in a fish and chip shop..the smell put me off from eating them, so did the grease!
    I also used to ice cakes for several well known high street shops..if you see how much grease is used to keep the icing in place..you would never want to eat one again!

    I only work in Wilkinson's so luckily I don't come face to face with temptation often, but I always seem to be the person who has to put out all confectionary... Thorntons chocolates do tempt me a little! xxx

    I make cakes and party food for friends and family fairly regularly but I haven't found it too bad as I don't have a really sweet tooth. Think I might have struggled if i'd worked on a cheese counter in a deli though....hmmmmm cheeeeeese....lol

    Back to Slimming World
    I used to work on a reception and people would constantly try to feed me! Leftover sandwiches from meetings, cookies and cakes from coffee mornings, you name it they brought me it! That was pre-SW and back when I just started "watching" what I was eating. Before I started working full time I worked weekends in a kitchen and part of the deal was that I got free breakfast and lunch, so I probably put a lot of weight on then too!

    Now I'm working away in an admin office so there's not much chance of having to work around food.. I just have to resist the goodies people bring in!

    I cook for DH every night......... he loves pastry, roast potatoes, sausage rolls, you name it if it is fattening and unhealthy he loves it, and he is slim !!!!

    Only the sausage rolls tempt me.

    I bake pastries and treats for kids just to have extra income. I love the smell of newly baked cakes. It's hard though not to taste what you've made.

    I used to work in a chippy, was pretty tough when you were busy and hungry, not to just grab a sausage sandwhich or chip butty!!
