I've started to attend more professional networking meetings and, sure, I know by now how to resist urges to eat badly - even when I'm hungry. But, wow, it's just amazing how much we Americans pack away at one sitting! Food is such a part of every single type of event we attend, every single thing we do. I just returned from another meeting and it was like watching train wrecks around me - people shoving things into their mouth like it was their last meal. It's not that it's that much of a temptation for me as it is just plain annoying to have to see so much junk food as a normal part of daily life. I guess I'm just grouchy right now and venting. But I'm sick of the sport eating, and I feel thankful that I am getting farther away from the impulses I used to give into.
