    If you’re on a diet in December, good luck. As coworkers share the fruits of their kitchen labors in the weeks before Christmas, how do you feel about all the extra calories?

    If you’re on a diet in December, good luck.

    After the culinary bacchanal of Thanksgiving, there’s little let-up, as coworkers continue to share the fruits of their kitchen labors straight on through Christmas.

    What do you think about all theextra food? Tell us in six words.

    There’s continued temptation at every turn, every day a new batch of cookies in the common room, a huge gift basket from a client to share, a cake, a basket of candy canes, a jar of foil-wrapped chocolate candies, home-made muffins, a box of soft pretzels—with cheddar cheese dipping sauce, of course.

    Are you able to resist temptation, or do you give in? Sum up your thoughts n six words.
