Question

So at what point in life does food become an obsession and not a chore?? I guess for some eating is for fuel and not for pleasure. But if you are anything like me, you know what I am talking about when I wonder when do moms have to stop telling us "3 more bites" start telling us "eat what's on your plate first and if you are still hungry you can get more??!!! This point must have been somewhere between 5th or 6th grade. I wish I had an awkward picture to post to truly illustrate my point but I think we all went through an "awkward, chubby, uncomfortable" stage. You know the picture, when the waist band on the shorts pushes out the belly and the inside knee part of the shorts are hiked up a little because you are unaware that they are "crawling". It is also around the time, and only my family will get this, when mom reminds you to wear your jockey. I distinctly remember hearing about baby fat and asking my dad when you know that you have finally lost all your baby fat? Let's face it, if you know enough to ask, it's already gone....start running. Oh to be a kid again and loose all interest in food!

having elastics i have to take off and on every time i eat and fake finger nails which makes it hard to do so has really helped me cut back on snacking.

any issues you have with food are not your fault or a product of age, but a result of comments from your thoughtless brother in isle 14 of your local safeway.

Sorry Kate.

oh cute...people are being sensitive and nice to that last post. that just means they really feel like you have an issue and they are trying to help. I'll just call you fat AND ugly because you know I love you and don't need to be nice. isle 14 at safeway has the diuretics and slim fast...Kate and i like Isle 10 because that is what we look like walking down it together...who is the #1? That is up to you...I love your body, Larry!

also, keeping all my extra weight on is the only things that make more than a jocky nessisary for me...poor tiny twins.
