Hey guys... I'm pretty new to the purse forum...but I just have to rant for a second. I work in NYC, where the food (at lunch) is pretty expensive. Also, I'm trying to adhere to a strict 3 meals a day diet, with limited portions. Because of my limits, (maybe this is just psychological) but I feel deprived if I do not eat my entire portion, and then end up splurging on a cookie or something as a snack. Well..anyways...my co-workers, claim they are on diets and don't get a lunch, but end up eating like more than half of my lunch. They are always like, "Can I have a bite...Oh, that's good..can I have more...can you cut me like half of your sandwich...can i have some of your soup..etc." First of all...I hate sharing food...I hate when people put thier hands in my chips bag or put thier spoon in my soup. I know I sound rigid, but it just grosses me out. I've been working at this job for 5 months, and I feel like if I say something, then everyone will think that I am being stingy. My co-workers have been here forever, and they have a way of spinning things. Like, for instance, (they are thin, and I am overweight), they will say that it wouldn't hurt for me to eat less and lose a few. The sad thing is, that is what I am trying to do!!! Alright...i feel better getting this off my chest....anyone have any advice?
