Do any of you do this:

If I'm out running errands or going out for whatever reason before you know it I'm thinking about where I might stop to get something to eat. It almost becomes an obsession as I think or plan on making several stops.

The other day I went to the bank for a brief meeting. On the way I stopped at McDonalds to eat a couple of egg mcmuffins and hash browns. At the meeting I ate three donuts and drank some coffee. After the meeting I thought I'd stop at the grocery store - I bought a quart of egg nog and some apple fritters to nosh on in the car. As I was eating and drinking in my car, I saw a sign for pizza and well, that was it, I had to call for a pizza. I didn't eat the pizza in the car, but mowed it as soon as I was back to work - as lunch.

Obviously I was super stuffed, but it felt so good, and I loved the taste and flavors of everything!

It's dangerous to go for a drive with me. lol

Just wondered if some here suffer with it.
Its been something I have dealt with for some time.
It has been a non issue thru most of this year but I have started eating compulsively again.
I can have just eaten and not be hungry but be out somewhere and see a food item that looks good and I'll buy it. Could be a cake or pie maybe a candy bar.
When I get back to my car its like this overwhelming urge to eat said item right in my car.
Yesterday I went to a pub with some friends ate a good sized lunch then when I was heading home I passed by a 5 Guys Burger and got a huge urge to eat a burger.
I turned around and went in and ordered a burger and fries.
I got done and was leaving and saw the sign for shakes so I got a large vanilla shake for the ride home.
A few hours later I was devouring a spice cake I bought a few days earlier.
I really don't want to go thru this again LOLOL

A gal I used to date a couple years ago had similar challenges. We finally figured out there were triggers in her case, and worked to gain some control back. It was a thing we had to be aware of but once we cracked to code, it no longer controlled her.
What were her triggers and how much effort was asked of you to help her?

that is hard truth, to get the urge to eat and get fatter is not really a problem unless youre not completely ok with it, and that is a difficult reality for many americans and many people around the globe actually. not easy to say no, once you accept that it's ok being over 200, 300, 350, but hey, 400 may be something i don't want to go over and what do i do, reality sometimes beats our fantasies

I know two women with similar issues. The former one - who sued to try getting fat for a long - has enough willpower to lower every then and now her compulsive eating binges, but the latter - who once cliamed have still being a sweet tooth since her childhood - had past through the most extreme case of withdrawal ever seen a few couple of years ago, seeing her body shift from a once-lithe to a chubby, then sizeably chunky shape as her hunger grow disproportionate and her metabolism decreases. She had lost a lot of weight since then considering that she look more-or-less soft in her social media updates, but I suspect that sometimes it still continue to catch her once and a while.

Same here if I don't have the compulsive desires my weight goes down and that may last 6 months or more give or take but once the compulsive eating desire comes back I generally will have a very noticeable weight gain.Noticeable to me anyway.
I guess its hard for others to notice because I am quite heavy to begin with.

I never have breakfast(unless I'm traveling) & will have my 1st meal somewhere around 11-1; sometimes as late as 4 or 5. However when I do start eating, I continue to graze.

Does anyone else get cravings for hot chocolate waffles with chocolate chip ice cream, hot fudge, and loads of whipped cream?

Funny story - many years ago I was sent to my first duty station outside of Madrid, Spain. We arrived in the evening at about 7pm local time. As it had been a long day, I was rather hungry. My sponsor showed me where most things were: the BX, chow hall (which was closed), my duty location, my dormitory room, and the Shopette (think 7-11 on a military base). Since the Shopette was the only place open, I decided to go over and buy something to eat. When I get in there I see a bin full of Gummy Bears! I loved (and still do love) them. At the time, they were 25 cents a bag (like I said, this was many years ago). I was so overjoyed that I used all the money I had in my pocket, all $16 and bought 64 bags of Gummy Bears. I took them to my room and dumped them in my fridge and only ate Gummy Bears for breakfast and dinner (lunch was free at the chow hall) until I got paid again (about 10 days later)!

Nope. And I eventually ate them all. Did not waste a single little, sweet bear.
They are lovely treats (I prefer wine gums myself) but I could never eat so many. I'd be as sick as a dog from so much sugar.
I guess that is why I prefer savoury type snacks ..... chips, popcorn, etc. I can easily eat my weight in those.

McDonald's hash browns are to die for. :)

Agreed, all of the above. Guess what somebody had as a late night snack?

I couldn't decide between syrup and ice cream. I had two with ice cream, and two with syrup. Oh, yes I had bacon and eggs too.
