Well, I'm going to let you in on a little secret she doesn't eat like that all of the time, or spend all of her time on the couch... because if she did, she wouldn't be the skinny girl shoveling food at the party, but the chubby pretending like she always only drinks water and eats a salad.

What sparks this? Check out this post from Lap Band Gal and all the awesome comments: Am I full of Sh*t? This post really got me thinking and analyzing how sometimes I bet my words don't match what people see.
The truth is 90% of the time I'm on track, counting calories, watching protein, staying away from desserts. When am I most likely to break these rules? When I'm out with friends at a party or some sort of celebration.
Examples: 1. 90%- I always drink water. I love it, and it is actually my beverage of choice.
10%- I will have a hot chocolate, or a glass of lemonade. (I'd actually say this is more like 2%-really, I love water)
2. 90%- Protein first then veggies.
10%- Pizza then cake
3. 90%- Running-biking-some kind of drench my fat in sweat kinda activity.
10%- Couch, movie, sweats!
4. 90% no dessert.
10% dessert the size of my head, or butt, depending on what is available.
I remember watching that skinny girl and envying her. Cursing my bad genetics and knowing that she got all the luck because she could eat like a pig. The truth is, that is a lie. There is work to be done to be healthy and there isn't anyway around it. Now when I see the slim girl enjoying herself at a party I know that Saturday morning she will be pounding the pavement, making her body hurt!
Moral of the story- don't justify your food choices by some other persons. You never know what their "actual" day looks like.
