Word.I get annoyed because I hate the assumption that I am the size I am because I don't eat. I eat a lot of food because I'm really active, and I am tired of women feeling ashamed of eating. I want to be able to eat a meal without people judging it and assessing my worth and willpower based on what I put on my plate. That messed-up crap around food leads a lot of women (me too in the past) to eat almost nothing in public and then binge in secret, followed by some lovely self-loathing. Yay for surviving eating disorders. If I can show a positive relationship with food, then how am I harming anyone?
I like food. I like eating. I don't know why I should feel guilty for saying it, any more than I should feel guilty for saying that I like to read books and go for walks with my dog. That's a healthy and normal relationship with eating, and I'm not going to be ashamed of enjoying my lunch.
