Sabotaging Thought: It’s so hard to resist the candy at work. Everyone else is eating it, so why can’t I?
Response: Very unfortunately, my body doesn’t know or care what anybody around me is eating, it ONLY cares what I eat, so just because others are eating something doesn’t mean I can or should, too. That being said, if I really want to eat the candy at work (and it’s worth the calories), then maybe I should plan in advance when and how much to have. One piece a day? One piece on Friday?
There is a huge middle ground between eating no candy and work and eating too much – it may be worth working towards a compromise.
