i sit here like a bloated pig *oink* *oink*
my belly's all pooched out and hurting
need to loosen my pants...they feel too tight
but i'm too uncomfortable to move...sluggish
feel like taking a nap...a long, long nap
i'm positively absolutely *stuffed*.

i shouldn't have eaten that much...really...
but i was absolutely *starving* and a friend
suggested that we eat out to eat...so we
go to an all you can eat buffet place. i
love buffets. i ate and ate all i could eat
and now i am fat and miserable.

i always do this. i promise myself that
it won't happen again, i will not eat *that*
much, but it does. everytime. especially
at an all you can eat buffet place. my
eyes get bigger than my stomach. what
a hog i am. i'm so ashamed.

holidays are another time when i pig out...
eat more than i should...all this food. i hate
to see it go to waste...but that's where it goes:
straight to my waist. why can't i have more
self control??? i hate starving myself, dieting
is the pits, diets make me hungry.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

i work at a all you can eat buffet style
restaurant. i love their food...but it is
so hard to try to maintain my weight
when i'm surrounded by all this food.
just smelling it, i feel like i've gained
weight...i had a big breakfast, ate
much more than i normally do, and
now, in the early evening, i'm still
feeling stuffed. i shouldn't have done
that...i'm miserable. i don't usually
overeat...i did today. and i'm paying
for it.

Love you for you first! You have a warm and good heart...but you must take care of it also. Many cannot lose weight no matter what they try. See yourself in the light and reach for that image. The rest will come. Do it for you. But you must love you for you first. Hugs
