Why does everyone feel like they have to offer me food ....I'm a grown woman and I'm not 5yrs old....I understand that they are just being nice...but if I am hungry I will eat😐 I will sit over here and enjoy my Protein Shake and tuna salad.

Its hard enough dodging the office cupcakes and donuts...lol

Ok I'm done-

LOL same! It's usually people that aren't that close to me and don't know about my surgery. They'll be like FINISH YOUR food or eat this and eat that. If I say that I can't because I'm on a diet they'll keep nagging and telling me to take a break and forget about my diet for they day. Even if I did want to listen to them, I cant! ALL THAT FOOD WON'T FIT! but they don't know that so to a lot of people i'm the diet freak that won't even eat half a bagel 🤦‍♀️ oh well...

You already answered your own question. It's usually seen as polite to offer food. Unless you have the impression that people try to actively sabotage you it's nothing to rant about.

I often offer some food (ProudGrammy called it "goodies", lol) myself. I don't mind though if people decline. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, depending on what I offer and at what time of day.

As much as some people on here might not like it but "food" brings people together since people exist.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
