Today my mom, her boyfriend and I went shopping and then to a lovely Chinese buffet. I was not feeling extraordinarily hungry, but I still ate something and sort of wish I had more of an appetite because the food was wonderful. Anyway, as soon as I finished what was on my plate, I sat back to relax and let the food settle. My mom's boyfriend, who was paying for the dinners, told me for about ten minutes straight to go back up and get more to eat. Not in a mean way, mind you...just telling me. I explained each time that I was very full from what I had eaten and that I did not want to overeat, but it still did not sink in. Eventually I went back up and grabbed some tiny pastry to shut him up, and after I ate it I felt even more sick because I was already feeling bloated.
I really did appreciate him treating us to dinner and I'm sure it was not entirely cheap for us all to eat, but is there any way I can politely remind him and anyone else who ever gives me a hard time that I'm full? Buffets are all you can eat - is it so horrible that all I can eat is a plateful?
