My wife talks about how Woman A will one day talk about diet, then the next day bring in junk. Once the junk is partially gone, she joins in the party...
Oh yeah. The women at my office are like that as well.
I forgot to mention the birthday parties. Not one per month to recognize everyone, but one for each person, complete with insane amounts of cake and cookies.
Two weeks ago was a double German chocolate cake. One of my coworkers said, "Cmon, have a piece. You said you were gaining weight."
And I said, "Yeah, but I am trying to keep the muscle to fat gain at around 2:1. All that sugar won't do a thing but get stored as fat."
And they just looked at me.
And today, an email for Weight Watcher's goes flying around. OY.
