    All Day, Every Day

    I love food so much, that for one weekend my parents were away, I did nothing but eat and watch tv all weekend. Pizza, chips candy, it was soooo good. I don't mind that I am fat, but this is certainly a part of that.

    day is food. If I'm not dieting and eating whatever I want in fine, but when I start to restrict is when I can't stop thinking about my next meal.

    I constantly look at buzzfeed,

    thrillist, huffington post, and any other food news source. It's impossible for me to stop and I do it compulsively. As I eat, I think about my next meal and obsess over food. I am not fat, but I am trying to loose weight. Food is just too good and is constantly on my mind!
