Let’s work together on the feeling of being way too full, or stuffed.

Has it happened to you, that “your eyes were bigger than your stomach,” and you took too much food for yourself, and ate the whole thing? It may have felt good going down, but then you felt bloated, stuffed, and even in pain from it.

Was there a time when you ate so much or drank so much it made you vomit? I can remember times like that, particularly at an all-you-can-eat buffet. As a matter of fact, every Sunday night when I was growing up my family went to a smorgasbord and I would go back to the buffet table and pile on food, helping after helping. I actually trained myself to stuff myself on a regular basis. There was almost no limit to how much I could eat, even though it made me feel awful every week. The weight just piled on me, like I piled food onto my plate and into my mouth.

Write about a time when you were stuffed to the point of discomfort or pain. Use that memory to intercede the next time you want to self-abuse by stuffing yourself.
