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!
