Overeating

I know eating is great and all, but what about when we overeat? It’s kind of disgusting (or at least, that’s how I feel).

With the holiday that just passed, I can’t help but write about this. Because, frankly, overeating isn’t the best thing in the world.

Overeating, as many of you already know, causes problems. “Being stuffed” isn’t always the greatest. It slows us down and tires us out. And worse, if we do it enough, it makes us gain weight.

Now, I have body image problems. I’ll admit to that. I’m know I’m not fat, but I can’t help but feel self-conscious when I eat too much food. Its as if people can see the my food baby (even though they can’t).

And look at what overeating has caused. Nearly two thirds of the United States is overweight. Two thirds is a majority. Its because we eat too much. Its because we’re trained to eat everything on our plate. And that happens far too often at restaurants and fast food establishments where the foods isn’t so healthy.

I read an article about chain restaurants and how their portions are out of control. Most notable is the Cheesecake Factory, with portions that are out of this world. I eat there all the time. (GASP!)

Cheesecake Factory food. It's a lot, isn't it?

I don’t mean to offend anyone by saying all this, but overeating really is a problem. I do it all the time, and I’ve gained a few pounds (like 20) over the past few months. That’s not good!

It seems that there needs to be a change in the way I do things because getting stuffed sure isn’t helping.

And the extra weight doesn’t help my body image problems either. To say the least, I’m freaking out over it. I wake up everyday saying to myself, “I need to lose those extra pounds I gained.” Does it happen? Nope.

And I keep wanting to exercise. Does that happen either? Nope.

Do I care? Yes, but not enough to change it.

But I should, shouldn’t I?

    So true! But I do overeat… more often than I wish I did. It’s just that I can’t help it. Maybe it’s cause of what you said, that we care but not enough to change it.
