Sometimes I forget to eat on the weekend.
It’s not uncommon for me to go until 3 or 4 in the afternoon on a Saturday before realizing I haven’t had a bite to eat. And only then because my stomach starts cramping up or I start to feel like I’m going to puke on my shoes. Then I immediately search for something to quench the pain and berate myself for letting this happen. I don’t know how anorexics can do it. Not eating is far too painful.
I think I forget to eat because I don’t have a routine on the weekends. During the week I bring breakfast and lunch to work, snack on cheese and pistachios during the day, and have dinner when I come home. Weekends have no order to them at all, so I don’t always remember to sit down for lunch. I try not to eat if I’m not hungry, and for some reason I don’t always get a ‘hungry’ feeling before my stomach starts wrapping around itself.
This is something I should really get a handle on. I need to start making myself eat when I wake up and at a certain time on the weekends or I’m going to make myself sick.
