  • I OVEREAT! I'm dealing with my bad decision now with tums and whining. But it might help you if you only put a normal amount on your plate and leave the rest behind. Get what you need on your plate and put the rest in the fridge before you eat. Then it'll be a hassle to get it out and heat it up...

  • I used to eat until I was stuffed. I am just a lover of food! Lol I love good tasting food so much that I don't want to stop eating it. caused me to gain a lot of weight and I noticed it was setting a bad example for my daughter who was then stuffing her face also. So I started weight watchers Jan 1st and have lost 21 lbs since - Yay! Now I'm at the point that I don't stuff myself, I stop when I'm full and I am never hungry like I used to be. Just hoping I can keep this up b/c I still have weight to lose!

  • I over eat when I go out, but not at home often. I do snack out of boredom though.

  • use a smaller plate, that really does work, also nothing wrong with snacking but change the type of snacks you have...instead of spending 5 bucks on chips and dip get fruit like grapes or bananas

  • Yep..if I do not go to bed as soon as I take my nightly ambien, I end up eating three or four bowls of cereal, a sandwich, crackers with cheese. It's horrible.

  • Not all the time, mostly because when I eat like that I don't want to move and I have to be on my toes constantly with my kids and work. I love to cook though and when I'm in the mood for a particular dish I'll eat until I'm hurting. Luckily i don't usually have enough time to get even a normally porportioned meal so I don't stress over it too much and I work out regularly - it started out as a routine with a friend who gained a lot of weight after having her kids and I was there for moral support but honestly I'd hate to think of how big my ass would be if I didn't work out.

  • I very seldom over eat. It hurts to be that stuffed.

  • I used to eat because I was bored. Since you do maybe you could try eating things that are healthier and smaller portions so the end result won't be you weighing 500lbs. Hope that helps :)
