Does anyone else take notes by observing the habits of thin people? : loseit
I work in an office with people who have managed to stay thin through years of sitting at a desk. I couldn't even get thin at a job where I walked all day because my eating habits were so bad. Something I notice about the thin people in my office are that they really only eat when they feel like they need to. A girl a few desks over from me had a package of cinnamon sugar pecans one day. She ate a few, then closed them and sat them back on her desk until the next day. Before I started my lifestyle change, I would have devoured the entire package of those things if I had some. I was getting coffee one morning and someone brought a couple boxes of donuts. As I'm getting my coffee, I see a guy (a thin guy) walk past the donuts without even taking a look, almost as if he knew he didn't actually need to eat that donut if he wasn't hungry for one. When eating out with friends, my thinner friends will only eat until they are full, they won't eat an entire meal plus appetizers. These are all things I took note of when I decided to change my eating habits and it has helped a ton. Just curious if anyone else has also done this also!

The Measure of Things
"The Measure Of Things is a search engine for finding comparative or relative measurements of physical quantities.

Want to know how much, how long, how many, how far, how large, how tall, how high, or how heavy something is? Want to figure what weighs 5; 500; or 5,000 tons? The Measure Of Things can tell you what you need to know.

With the Measure Of Things tool, you can take a physical quantity - like 84 kilograms or 23 cubic meters - and see how it compares to a list of famous or well-known objects. For example, 84 kilograms is the weight of about 17 gallons of paint, while 23 cubic meters is about twice the volume of a cement mixer truck."
