"She had eight grilled cheese sandwiches. She stuffed them in her mouth all at once. It was so sad."— from Legally Blonde
My worst eating moment....hmmm, I have had so many it is hard to choose from. I tend to order a little of everything off a menu because I can't decide what I want. Somehow I had been able to really pack it in and instead of sampling lots of different things from each order, I was consuming all of the different things I ordered. Expensive on the pocket book and super expensive on the waist line. Worst moment? Well I know the question refers to a specific time, but I wanted to share how awful it felt to have someone look at me wide-eyed and shocked at the amount of food I ordered (sometimes 3-4 different meals at once or with a bazillion sides or substitutions).
I remember punishing myself by stuffing myself as a way of making my ridiculous order seem cool. Like a feat of tummy strength. Stupid I know. I have just built up such a reputation for loving food so much that I was pushing myself to eat in ways that didn't make me feel or look good just to keep up the reputation. I have slowly, but surely refined that reputation to be a love of good quality food and now I certainly wouldn't disrespect cheese, wine or chocolate by devouring it without truly enjoying each bite. Trust me, if your so full it hurts, you are not enjoying each bite anymore, you are punishing yourself and wasting good food so you might as well stop.
