I am, and have been my entire life, very thin. It is as big a curse as it is a blessing.
My eating habits are routine, but odd. I eat a small breakfast each morning: large bowl of ceral loaded with sugar, two slices of buttered cinnamon toast, OJ and a couple cups of coffee. Seldom eat lunch. Dinner is usually meat, vegetables, some more bread, milk. And always desert. During the work day I'll snack on donuts or other empty calories in the break room or a couple Nature's Valley granola bars. (As I write this, I am munching on some exquisite ice cream, caramel, peanut and graham cracker concoction a gal in my office brought in.)
My big problem is weekends: sometimes I simply forget to eat. I'll get busy doing something or another and *poof* one or two mealtimes have passed me by and I've had nothing but coffee.
I have only recently re-gained most of the weight I seemed to have lost during my separation: I am back up to 154 pounds. I am just a shade under 5'10". Even if I am eating three meals a day and snacking in between, I never seem to gain weight. I have surpassed 160 pounds one time in my life.
