"Is that DIET food?" Ugh, I hate the food police! ;)

Okay, so I absolutely love love love my job, (the job itself). I'm a dispatcher, I love it, I'm good at it, the deputies heart me and I heart them... I take pride in being able to help them with everyday stuff, but more importantly I enjoy being able to provide them help in the time of an emergency. BUT I CAN NOT STAND 99% OF MY COWORKERS! Oy!! They are the biggest, most nosey group of back stabbers I've ever met. Luckily the way my job is designed, I can sit here, do my stuff and more or less keep to myself. Thank goodness for that!
I work 12 hour days, so I'm eating lunch and dinner at work. They go get fast food everyday (as we aren't allowed to leave on our lunch breaks, so one or two people take orders and go and get food), and it is hard enough for me to pass that up (especially today when they went to In N Out *drools*). I have been trying desperately this week to get back into the swing of things, I'm on about day 4... I had been eating lean cuisines or what not and gone undetected.
BUT today *sighs*, I made whole wheat spaghetti, peas and ground chicken for today and tomorrow. Unfortunately, one of my coworkers told me about her super strict lose a buncha weight really fast diet a long time ago, that only works if you're super strict... so she says. Her diet wasn't anything special or exhilarating, it was eating 6 times a day, having a protein, good carb and veggies. Okay, um, isn't that kinda how we are supposed to eat anyways? But I never lasted on her super strict crazy diet, and she knew that and after that she left me alone. But today I was caught red handed, with my ground chicken, whole wheat pasta and peas... and she stopped me in my tracks. She said "what do you have there?", I replied "food", she said "hmmmm, it looks like REAAALLLY good diet food, is it?" I said "nooooo it's just food..." This particular coworker and I actually have a decent relationship, so it's not even that. It's just like, why do you even have to ask. It's just food. I hate food police, and I know a lot of things say you should tell people about your weight loss, because support helps or it helps keep you accountable, but I'm sorry... these women are vicious and I don't need them watching what I eat. LOL.
So anyways, I'm just ranting, the scale isn't budging, I'm trying, and people are nosey... that is all LOL ;)
