Pre-occupation with food (text-only)

A girl speaking towards a camera.

When I was dieting, I was SO preoccupied with food. I was constantly thinking about what I was going to have to eat next, what I had eaten before that I shouldn't have eaten, or what I had eaten before that it was great that I ate. Friends would call me and ask if I wanted to go see a movie, and I didn't want to go, because it would mess up my exercise schedule, or something weird like that. Now that I look back on it, it was the most unhappy time of my life.
