I used to PRAY" to be one of those people who lost my appetite when stressed or sick...nope.... I eat when I'm stressed/happy/sad/bored/busy/tired/ energized.... never fails that I can find reason to eat! LOL

Me too.


I wish I could be one of those people who "forget to eat".


I cannot recall ever forgetting to eat a meal.

the best is when you go out to eat and someone says "oh do you want to share a meal?" um... no.

I was in the car today planning my next meal in my head and realized that I judge a good restaurant by the hefty size of the portions.


That did it.

I always say I have to be 1/2 dead to not eat, but I think even that doesn't do it. A couple of weeks ago I had the flu(respiratory kind) and I went from breakfast to 7:00 PM without eating, that NEVER happens!

No. One thing my mother got right somehow was to bring us up without food issues.
