I get a weird kind of a negative aftertaste when I hang out with this particular group of friends, which is sad because we’ve been friends since high school/middle school.
So I like eating a lot a lot. I’ve been keeping it down but I still enjoy eating quite a lot. But when I eat with these friends I eat like a 1/3 to 1/2 of what I usually eat (because I get super self-conscious), and even then my friends don’t eat as much. My friends are also considerably smaller than me. I also know they work out to keep fit and dress very well.
This is all fine and dandy because kudos for them for keeping their health and appearances up. But each time they always say “I ate too much. I feel so fat. I need to run tomorrow to get all this weight off.”
I don’t like this. it’s annoying and it makes me more self-conscious. This is not cool either. So if you guys have friends you are comfortable eating with to your heart’s content, that’s precious and dear.
