Do you overeat?

Wasn't sure where this should go but figured this was as good a place as any! So my question is, do you find yourself over eating? I don't do it often but sometimes I just find myself eating to much and then feeling awful after for hours.

Why do we do this? We know we've eaten enough but yet we keep eating.

Tonight for example, I drank red wine with dinner, which already does my stomach in. Then ate just a little to much and now I'm in misery!

I know this is how many people become seriously overweight, I know its bad, I know enough to not do it very often. But then here I am, sitting on my sofa rubbing my belly!

Blah!

My cousin always used to say about me:

"I wouldn't say he eats a lot but he's the first to the dinner table and the last to leave and he doesn't talk much!"

I am addicted to eating. If there is food on the table, it is my single-minded mission to eat it all.

In a restaurant, I want an appetizer and dessert along with the entrée. If the soup looks good, I want that too. Sadly, along with old age comes diminished capacity. I can no longer eat as I used to.

If I could manage good portion control, I could control my weight but that doesn't happen often.

I always eat off of a "small" plate. I have done that for years. I think my problem is the snacking between meals.

Miss Kitty...

I sure hate to hear about your tummy-ache. I can only imagine what that feels like since I never, ever over eat.

I made a nice meal for a Friday. Did we over eat? The chicken was done before sides and before dinner time. We had a chicken sandwich and then went on with our work for a couple of hours. Dinner time came and we ate and now we are full. Time for some personal time. Computer, video game or a dvd movie. Before long it will be time to hit the evening chores and we all have a few that cannot wait for tomorrow.....walking the dogs, visiting friends, playing basketball, mowing the lawn, or some shopping.

I will over eat if it is something that I really enjoy... I tend to eat more of that item that is deemed one of my favorites which usually ends up in the misery you mentioned.

Here is one thing that drives me nuts and can't get a handle on.... I am certain this is true about any mexican resturaunt that you go to in the US, but they serve chips and salsa prior to the meal and I always eat way to many of them (specially if the salsa is good and spicy and the chips are warm and crispy), and then when the meal comes, I eat 2 bites and I'm full!!!! UGH!!!

People with kids actually ask them not to serve the complimentary chips/dip. Don't you wish they would take your order after you eat the chips/dip and just charge you for an appetizer and a drink?
