Hey, just because someone offers you a piece of pie, doesn’t mean that you need to take it. Just say no!
You shouldn’t eat just because everyone else is eating.
Don’t go along to get along. This is YOUR body.
Either take smaller portions or just say “No Thank You!”
Let me share with you something that happened to me this week.
Of course it was our company holiday gathering. Tons of food was available everywhere. It was a “pot luck” smorgasbord of appetizers, entrees and desserts.
Knowing ahead of time that I would be going to a function like this, I decided to bring a grilled chicken salad.
Walking down the hall, my co-workers said “we are going to add some weight to you.”
If this was last year or even a few months ago, I would have gorged myself on food.
Not anymore, being thin tastes better than any pie. So, I casually said that I would help myself to some salad.
I didn’t let that bother me. I am the only one who has to live with my body and how I feel in it.
And, you shouldn’t let that bother you either.
It is OK to say no, you know!
If a good “no” doesn’t work, try saying “I am full right now…” or “maybe in a little bit…” or “maybe I will take some home with me.”
There are lots of easy ways to navigate the “say NO to pie” question…BUT just say NO!
Stay tuned for another holiday tip tomorrow…
