Thanks for your reply.
I think you just might be right. I actually have tried to observe people and how they really are eating.
Just today, I saw a coworker going to break and in her hand she had a cup of coffee or tea and one small cookie. Now I think she's just a naturally slim person. It was quite interesting to see that while she is enjoying that cookie, it really is just one.
I want to be one of those people
I had a friend (I say HAD b/c about a year ago, when I really started losing weight and met a new man, we split ways and she says it's b/c of one comment I made by accident, but I hardly think 20 years of friendship is worth losing over one misunderstood comment) ANYWAY this friend (and I'm not saying this to be cruel) was quite heavy and I could never understand why b/c she used to tell me that she forgot to eat lunch, didn't eat breakfast etc. Yet, she would snack on huge amounts of nuts and have ice cream for supper.
I guess the trick really is actually to EAT. Eat well, but small amounts, and often.
