A COOKIE IS JUST A COOKIE

AskEMME: A COOKIE IS JUST A COOKIE

Q: I have a friend who tells me what I can’t have every time we go out to eat. The last time, I wanted a cookie and she said, “What? Have you kissed size 12 good-bye to say hello to size 18 forever?” She had asked me to stop complaining about my weight, and I did… but now she does nothing but! How do I get her off my back?

A: Stop the insanity and tell her to get with it; that diets stink and eating well, is in. When you deny yourself food that you don’t eat regularly, like cookies, you crave it, and eventually overdo it the next time you bump into that goodie.

Take a page from my book. I was quoted by The The New York TimesTimes staff writer ‪#‎AlexWitchel‬ , which made the distinguished quote of the day, ”A cookie is just a cookie, get over it! ”

Gum Snapper

AskEMME: Gum Snapper

Q: My coworker is always chewing gum and it makes me crazy. Not only does she chew loudly, she’s also a snapper. How do I handle this? She is driving me insane.

A: I have to confess I am a snapper, but I know all too well how irritating it can be to witness or be captive to a nonstop, insensitive gum chewer. What are you waiting for? Tell her to get a grip on her urge to snap. When I’m told I chew loudly, I turn red and throw the gum out immediately and think again to chew with anyone else around. If I can handle the feedback, so can she.

What to do if she cops an attitude? Tell her to grow up.

I DO OR I DON’T

AskEMME: I DO OR I DON’T

Q: I have been dating a married guy for a couple of years and he
just finalized his divorce. (I had nothing to do with the divorce- he had separated before we met.) Now that he is legally unattached my emotions keep fluctuating. Why is this happening?

A: Sometimes what we can’t have is what we want most. The dynamics of your relationship have shifted and the reality of it may not be what you expected. Take a good look at why you were attracted to him in the first place. Don’t rush any decisions you may be making at this time.

Your feelings are valid and it’s important to note (feel) and address what's most important.
