Know When to Stop

POST #    631

gluttony - noun 1: habitual eating to excess 2: eating to excess (personified as one of the deadly sins)

Recently, I have been eating to excess far too often. I'm not sure why, but this can't be a good trend. Incidences of note: Monday, I had a 6" sub and fries for lunch at Blimpies, followed by a personal pizza from Pizza Hut. Today, I had a large #1 from McDonalds and a McChicken sandwich. I don't know what my problem is. Each individual meal should be more than enough to fill me up, but no, I had to have more. The Blimpie/Pizza Hut incident should be the most disturbing, since I got the pizza while I started to get full.

I need to get my stomach in check, lest my Chinese metabolism start slowing. Right now, I think I'm out-eating my metabolism, so I'm getting a tad bigger. I like to think of it as "winter weight." I plan on losing it for bikini season, not really for a bikini. I guess using my gym membership would be the wise thing to do, but we can't be wise all the time, can we?

i should add that after lunch, there was a stop at the local bodega for some candy. they didn't have any almond joy, so i bought almond m&m's and then an almond hershey's bar. i seem to have an almond craving.

I'll go through swings where I have a sandwich and yogurt and a bag of chips for lunch and still be hungry an hour later, but then the next day, not be able to finish my salad. i too fear the day that my metabolism will not let me get away with working out only once a week.

Well it is winter. Maybe what you need is what you recommend for Kucinich. People do tend to pair up and enter into relationships in the fall. Then do they over eat also?
You sure have been eating alot of crap.
The more you eat of that the more you'll crave, since you're still not getting what you need.
I suppose there is not much in fruit selection in NY. In San Diego it's much smoothies.

pair up into a relationship...hmm...i'll think about that one. i do want to eat less though. it just gets expensive. especially when it's not necessary.

I didn't mean maybe a relationship is needed, just the 'get some ass' part.
