What do you think of this situation?

At my old job almost every other week there was a party. We all had to bring enough junk food for around 20 people. The two tables were packed with cake, chips, dip, cookies, pie and more. I was struggling to lose a pound. I couldn’t help but nibble at the food because it was right next to me. It was terrible and I was frustrated. Even though I didn’t eat too much of it I still was gaining weight. I think the constant parties and amount of food was the reason. The food would last for days. I told them that it is soo unhealthy to have these parties constantly but they were obsessed. I didn’t understand their mindset. Why don’t you just go buy yourself a good lunch and forget about making a stupid junk food party. I was just out of my mind with them. Now that I left I lost 8 pounds already. Thank God

Funny how anytime we want to try to lose some weight our workplace decides to have junk food parties.
Yes, it was a nightmare. They were like no other place I worked at. They had to go overboard with the freakin junk food and you know when it’s right in front of you then you’re going to reach for it @SilkenMist

@DestinyCalling Lead us not into temptation, for that we can find easy enough on our own.
If you worked with these women you would gain 50 pounds in a year. Lol, they are just something else. @SilkenMist
The fact that they had a weekly party is one thing. But to ask people to bring enough to feed 20 people? That’s not right
Exactly and that’s why there was too much food that would last for days @southerngent
Yes, very unhealthy. Never heard of that happening in a workplace.
Me neither, they made my life a living hell. They were nice but their parties fdddd up my weight. @MsSwann

That’s crazy, why so often? There’s no need for that, it’s so gluttonous.

When I was working we would only have a party like that around Christmas.
Yeah I swear I never gained weight like I did working there. @iamonfire696

@DestinyCalling I am glad you aren’t working there anymore.
Me too @iamonfire696
