    Tiny little question I'm making for the hell of it.

    I do skip meals, usually breakfast and sometimes lunch, since I'm extremely sedentary and am afraid to gain weight otherwise. So far it seems to be working I guess. I also heard having less meals extends one's lifespan but ehhh I'm not sure, gotta look into it

    Well, thanks to the recent removal of my wisdom teeth, I'm basically fasting. I'm so goddamn hungry right now.

    Last night my father decided that it would be a great idea to make some delicious ribs. And then for the final blow, my mother made chocolate chip cookies afterwards. All I could do is watch - and stuff my mouth hole with mashed potatoes and yogurt.

    Yeah, sometimes, I am too nervous to eat, and just have no desire to, or else, I get anxious over how much it costs. So I skip meals to save money, and sometimes, will just eat once a day, lunch, and crash, and go to sleep when I get home. Maybe have a snack but it's late then, and I have fears of gaining weight, and wanna weigh like 120 pounds again. I might be 140 now, and that feels too big.

    Oddly, I love to cook, but I have not had the time with work and the long train commute, and in ways, this desire to not want to eat is sort of also a desire to just kind of fade away, thinner and thinner, until I'm blown away, tired, with less and less resistance, some crumpled rag.

    Food costs are ridiculous nowadays. Kinda sad that people are resorting to simply not eating to save money. What a peachy world we live in.

    Yeah. Electric costs have doubled in the past 8 years, here, rent is way, way up, mass transit costs go up all the time, insurance costs go up...and my wages have stayed almost the same. I have looked for better jobs, moved to smaller/cheaper places, sold things of value, but it's hard to keep up, just keep falling behind, so one last place to cut back, is food. But I 'make too much' to get any help, so it's hard, I mean, working full time, it gets depressing, especially now, with the holidays coming up.

    I mean, I guess it's better than being homeless, I think at least 10% of people in Baltimore will be homeless at some point, in any given year. But I worry that even working, this might be me, someday. I guess the whole holiday season makes me think of this sorta 'downward spiral' I've been in, and is a hard time for me, each year, so maybe I will fast on the holidays, this year, and try and reflect on why....why...what, I am not sure.

    I usually don't eat. I used to eat 2 meals every second day. Now I pretty much just have lunch or dinner, only one meal a day.
    Mostly beacuse I get sick from everything I eat. Its not healthy to do this but I lost close to 10 pounds a month when I was eating every second day

    I skip meals quite a lot. I usually eat a large supper and that's it. Once in a while I shove a sandwich into my face or veggies or something but I work 12 hour shifts and unless working simply isn't an option due to a delay or clerical red tape, I don't get to eat.

    I don't eat much. Maybe something small every day. Everything else is actually supplements during the week, except for Sunday, my food cheat day.

    "Breakfast"?

    What is this strange word you use?

    Gotta admit that I like my food. I think some people get more enjoyment out of eating than others and that kinda shapes how much we eat. If I was born into an Islamic family or some other religion that practices annual fasting I'd probably do it though. I can be very dedicated to an idea if it really matters. I've stuck to diets for a whole year at times.

    Honestly I still dont know, I spent the last few months and still going to doctors randomly about this. but so far all I know is that there is more foods that I cant eat then foods I can eat. Even though I still eat them (doctors say i shouldn't) just get sick for the rest of the day.
    Only reason why im starting to eat again was beacuse I lost just under 40 pounds in 2 months.
