In response to a confession. I have a CW who complains about her weight a lot too, but she also brings fast food in a lot. Once, I said to her "You eat a lot of fast food, don't you?" and she said "Yeah, I do...it's just easier. You always bring healthy stuff". And yeah...that's why I don't have a weight problem. I am also not impulsive generally, so maybe that's also part of it. I don't see food and immediately feel the need to eat it, but judging from what I see at work a lot of people seem to have trouble with that. I know my DH is definitely a "see food, eat food" person.

In response to a confession. It's not the same thing at all. The CW I was talking about is nothing like you. She's the one who makes comments about what I'm eating. I don't engage, I come here and bitch about it. Because seriously, I don't want to hear her complain about the status of her weight or health and act like she's just unlucky when I can physically see with my own eyes that she's eating food that causes her to be in this situation. And FTR, I get that whole 'eat a burger' shit every single time I say that I'm cold. Every. Time. "You're cold because you don't have any fat on you, you should eat a burger." Whatever. Commenting about other people's weight or what they're eating is rude any way you slice it. I come here to do it. Safe space and all.

In order for me to lose weight, I have to eat less than 1,000 calories a day. And that's with exercise, which I already do. I have been to countless doctors over at least ten years, and the official cause it, "That's just the way your body is." I had an eating disorder for years, and that may have contributed. I eat ridiculously clean and healthy, basically Paleo, and have for years. If I ate like the average person, I'd be 100 pounds overweight. I currently eat about 1,200 calories a day just to maintain being 20 pounds overweight. I have to weigh and measure everything, just to stay where I am. If someone has never had food issues before, it is really easy to sit and judge. Do you tell people with anorexia to just eat a burger? Because it's kind of the same thing.

In response to a confession. I can totally relate, OP.. I have a friend like that. Always saying how lucky I am to be thin (although I'm more average than skinny) and she wishes she could be my size, etc. Um, hello, I exercise, and count calories and make good food choices. She is probably 100+ lbs overweight and does nothing. Eats like shit all day and night, drinks on the weekends and doesn't do one lick of anything physical. She also has a desk job. I don't care what weight she is but stfu.

I'm organizing a baby shower for my coworker. For one of the games, I'm asking everyone on the team to send me their baby picture for us to guess name that baby. Our Executive Director sent me a baby pic, then...a baby nude one!!! OMFG?!! I can't believe I saw that, TMI!!! Didn't she know or was it a joke? We are a small team and all close, but that was like WTF?!? I know it's natural, but it's still going to be awkward for me to know that I've seen it! :(

In response to a confession. Woohoo, the workshop had no Zoombombers! It went fairly smooth with the technical side of things. Everyone seemed to enjoy it! I'm just so relieved it went well for our first one!

Seriously? Do you come into HIS office while HE'S working to flip HIS fucking calendar? NO! And then you stand there looking at all the months because there are pretty pictures. I swear to god if you come in here and bother me with stupid shit one more time today, I'm gonna go the fuck off on you. You're the one who hung a goddamn calendar (that I will NEVER use or even look at) in MY office to begin with! Why? GTFO. And don't come back. And take your fucking calendar.

Dear coworker: the reason I'm at a healthy weight and have no health issues is because I exercise and eat right. I'm not just lucky. It's not rocket science, it's not genetics, and it's not luck. I eat brown rice and vegetables for lunch every day. Meanwhile, I don't really know what you're eating but it smells like an IHOP in here. I can almost feel the sugar in my nose. The mountain of processed food wrappers in your trash can is very telling also. And the junk and garbage you put in your body is why you look and feel sick. Garbage in, garbage out.

Ugh, we hosted a public event last night and it was Zoombombed. People were suddenly sharing screens, annotating, and one random person even became co-host? It heard was stressful for the staff hosting it. I thought we had all the security measures in place. Now I'm worried about my upcoming public event with coworker who has never hosted any events before.
