One little cupcake won't hurt

I'm tired of people badgering me every time we have a party at work. I tell them I'm on a strict diet because they don't need to know my medical history. Every time we have treats at work people badger me to have a cupcake because I'm not fat. Because one cupcake won't hurt me. Because because because.
Just leave me be! I would complain to my boss but she does it too

I'm sorry, that would be annoying if you truly could or do not want one.

I'd just start joking with them and try to make it funny.

Food is complex, so many emotions and celebration stigma tied to it, subconsciously they want you to participate, and be joyful and happy. I doubt they mean to be so annoying, it's probably the opposite, trying to actually make you feel better!

Just say I have medical condition that does not allow me to eat certain things.

I don't see what's the big deal about just saying you're diasbetic.  Granted, it isn't any of thier business.  But it's better than being badgered every time a cupcake is in the building.

 


Don't text and drive. 


That doesn't mean you can look at your phone at red lights or stop signs or if you think you can do it quickly or if traffic's slow.  Just don't.  You're an adult.  Exercise some impulse control.  Quit driving like a 4 year old.

Tell them you are diabetic. It's not like you have something with a social stigma. They will leave you alone and may even go out of their way to make foods that you can enjoy.

I'll stick to the veggie trays. I prefer them anyway. I never liked frosting unless it's the whipped cream frosting. Way too sweet
