DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 19 April 2013

Yup.. 2nd Journal of the Day. I think my new co-worker is trying to fatten me up. Which is strange because I don't think she knew I had lost weight until yesterday when another co-worker complimented me and said I was really slimming down.

First of all she's another writer so as she's learning the format, product, and software she has to go to someone for help. If our boss is missing or not all that useful she goes to me. The only other writer. Makes sense right? The thing that doesn't make sense is her insistance on thanking me.. with cookies. Which I politely refused about 5 or 6 times.

Next she caught me with my carrot stash. I can eat an entire bag of baby carrots in a week. It's my sweet, acceptable treat. If I turn orange well then I turn orange. Since then she claims all I eat is carrots. When I got the compliment on slimming down she claimed it was all the carrots.

Today she comes over with a giant dark chocolate candy bar and insists on sharing it with me and the other co-worker who was at my desk working with me. This time I didn't refuse. I figured a single piece of dark chocolate won't derail me too badly. Plus I don't have any protein bars so I'm sitting ok on the calorie side. And! Maybe just maybe.. she will stop trying to feed me!

I like this woman. She's funny. She seems to be on the same wavelength as me. She is a bit older than me so maybe it's that whole motherly let me feed you thing. If she keeps offering me cookies I'm gonna have to chuck my baby carrots at her though.

Next I'm off to the bowling alley with the woman who claims I'm a twig and keeps trying to feed me! I'm going to have to post pictures this weekend so I can validate I'm not twiggy! Twigs do not have puddle butts.

Maybe ask her for some carrot cake then. ;) And I am sure we would all love to see you. Thynes is the only one who seems to get this privilege. and it's not fair.

My co-workers try to fatten me up too! Their excuse is, "Well if anyone can afford another muffin/cookie/insert goody of choice, it's you." Or they give me the, "if you don't take it home we are going to throw it away." I cannot stand to waste food! That's how I ended up with pizza last night and HoneyBaked Sandwiches for lunch AND dinner today! Maybe you can offer to share your carrots with your co-worker? Your healthy habits might rub off on her. :)

I would give more people the privilege of being tormented but I'm pretty sure Thynes is the only one that lives close by! lol I will have to take a new picture. Not in skorts though.. I'm not sure if I can resist the urge to show off my shorts if there is a camera. :)

As much as I hate having to remember my lies...about the third 'no thank you' to sweets I'll say I have blood sugar problems. Seems to make them feel bad enough to stop when the first two no's (didn't) .

I remember those days at work. People always bringing food in and not happy if you're not eating it. lol It's just so hard to reisist sometimes. Happy you like this woman. It's so nice to be able to connect with someone.

People are so weird about food. Obviously me included. Not sure why its meaningful what anyone else eats....
