I'm lazy, I just keep the wrappers in the back of a drawer in my desk.

Eating Snickers on the toilet in the public bathroom at work so no one can see.

Wow, I have done all of these things. The thing I have done that I am really ashamed of.........

going through the drive thru and ordering 2 value meals, so the teller thinks one is for someone else.... I have thrown away a lot of soda :(

i'm not so fat anymore

but I still do many of these things and more. Like throwing stuff away and then coming back for it-- gross I know, but I do this. So even if you have a long way to go, know that this stuff lingers...and lingers...

Eating food off my family's plates as I'm cleaning up after dinner - UGH.

Cutting myself two pieces of cake in the break room, acting like one is for someone else. Then eating one as quickly as possible on the way back to my desk so I only come back with one that I eat slowly around others. least I'm not alone.

ALl of these are despicable...ugh. From the other end of the spectrum, I used to prepare huge meals for my family and not eat a thing except for a can of tuna in water every day.

i'd say these behaviours are more associated with shame-based feelings than with being fat. i'm sure there are fat people who do these things, but there are also skinny people who engage in the same behaviours. my very slender friend, for instance, always hides her "snack" wrappers and fast food packages. she'll deny even liking these foods. it's about self-esteem and shame and guilt and lack of a postive relationship with food.

I have to say that, as a girl who has been overweight all her life, but never REALLY big, I have never heard of such things! The thought never crossed my mind that anyone would do these things. The "two slices of cake" thing and the eating on the toilet really surprised me. Neither of the posts suggested that the authors enjoyed the food that they were eating. It was the cake one that's really confused me because what I can't understand is, if the writer wanted plenty of cake, why not cut a bigger slice rather than two? No one really bats an eyelid. Shovelling it down your neck when walking back to your desk rather than sitting down and enjoying it indicates to me that the writer didn't really want the cake in the first place at all.
