Eating to be nice

Sunday, August 08, 2010

Although I have not yet managed to squeeze back in to the healthy range for my BMI, I am pretty close and interestingly that makes me one of the thinner people around where I live.

The other night some really nice friends of ours had us over to play board games. They are fairly heavy people and made an amazing array of snacks for us - chicken wings, 3 different kinds of stuffed pocket things, baked mozarella, shrimp ring, chips and guacamole. I wasn't hungry at all, but I ate probably a days worth of calories partly because it was all delicious and hard to resist, but partly also because I didn't want to act like I was better than them by not eating it.

Anyways, I don't feel bad about my decision and I would do it again I just thought it was weird that that kind of thinking has become part of our society somehow.

    it's SO true! Where I come from, if I didn't eat, I'd eithe rbe considered rude or would be FORCED to eat something. I read somewhere once that if a woman's friends are overweight, she is significantly more likely to become overweight herself. Maybe social eating like this has something to do with it?
