Good job. I sort of know how you feel. In front of people I always try to eat healthy. When I am on my own I sneak junk food. I hate the way that I am but when I read what you wrote I got the feeling maybe on some level you may understand. Thanks for sharing. Maybe this post is my huge step for the day....

At work we always have potlucks and lunches and things like that. I never participate in any of it. I use the excuse that I have to watch the front desk (I am the receptionist). Truth is, I am scared to death to eat in front of other people. I am so scared that they we see me eat and think, "oh yeah, look at the fat chick eat" I have lost several friends because of this and I am considered a loner at work. (among other things)
Anyway, today we had an offsite lunch for Bosses day and I actually went. I was sweating I was so anxious and nervous. I felt sick to my stomach when the food started coming out. But I ate my lunch. I did it. That is the first time I ate in front of other people besides my family in years. I didn't talk much but I was there. I have to admit, I am very proud of myself for doing this. I can't say when the next time I will be able to do this is but I did it today.
