Negativity strikes again...
I was sitting at someone's desk at work today while I trained her, and she had a stack of gourmet chocolate cookies sitting right in front of me. I didn't pay it too much mind other than try to read the label on the package. A co-worker walked by a couple of times then stopped next to us said "*Shadow* is staring right at these cookies because she just wants one soooooooo badly". I said nicely "No, not really". lol that ended it she walked away awkwardly and said "I understand". Was kind of a weird moment... dunno if I should be offended or not. I kind of felt like she saw an opportunity to rub something I couldn't have into my face and took it.
It's like... I wouldn't walk up to someone who's had a mastectomy and say "so-so is staring at boobs because she just wants one soooooo badly". Or walk up to an alcoholic and say something like that about alcohol. Of course not, that would make me a jerk.
I realize that not everyone is like this... it really seems to be only a few people who bother me about it and they happen to work in my unit. But they haven't taken a clue and I don't quite know what's behind it other than a certain amount of pettiness or competitiveness.

I can relate! Just keep a positive outlook and you will prevail! I am so admirable of your non-confrontational "No, not really" answer to that caddy statement your co-worker made. We need to keep positive attitudes and not let jealous people depress us. Keep up the great work!

There are all kinds of stupidity in this world, dont let that stupidity get you down. Your better then that by far, you know what you want and you have your goals. When some one really upsets me my mother taught me this saying years ago when I was a little girl and I read it and read it till I had it memorized when I say it to people that tic me off they dont know what to say there mouths just drop. It goes like this "are you insuating that I should tollerate such insubordination from a micro scopic organism, whose mental compasity has not yet been fully established, your just a funny little blob running around in crazy mixed up circles." Then just walk away.

I think you handled it well. I think that people who haven't climbed this mountain, don't realize how tough it can be. If you've never had food issues, it's easy to say, "eat less, exercise more." Remain positive and strong, I believe you are worth it.

Nasty, trifling people are everywhere. I choose to pity them.
