    I Eat Constantly!

    I eat constantly. When I'm bored, I eat. When I'm in public with food, I eat. I think about food, and food is in my mouth. I weigh probably around 120lb I'm skinny and have two kids. I know when to stop eating and when I do get to my limit, I eat constantly again! What is wrong with me?
