Dating and Weight Gain: Why We Pack on the Pounds

For me, my weight has always been a bit of a challenge. Having a childhood nickname of “Buddha Baby” should kind of explain it it all, but, in essence, I’ve always loved food…and struggled with keeping a trim figure as a result.

It was Mother's Day brunch. I was 12 and my sister was 10. My family was notorious for going to brunches. As a child I remember waiting up to an hour just to get into a good Sunday brunch. This day we had already gotten up for seconds. Then thirds. After all, brunch is a time to splurge! I was half way through my third round of little desert cakes, bacon and scrambled eggs when I looked over and noticed that my sister had stopped eating. "What's wrong?" I inquired dumbfounded. We were at brunch after all; you are supposed to stuff yourself silly.
