In the weight loss world, every day is a struggle. Between life and triggers, losing each pound seems like pulling teeth. And it feels like an eternity for some.
In a recent post on a social media group – which is run and monitored by administrators – I asked about mukbang, and if anyone has had success with appetite suppression via watching mukbang videos. An hour or so ago, my post was approved, and someone commented. But I didn’t get to see the comment because I was busy. However, it was in my notifications.
Any regular social media user knows how notifications work.
To my surprise, my post was removed within minutes of being approved. While I have not questioned the administrator of the group, I can only imagine what the comment was on my post, and the reason why the post was removed.
I can understand that videos about eating can be triggering, but don’t the rules of the internet state that if you don’t like something, keep scrolling? I wasn’t trying to trigger anyone. I was simply trying to suggest that maybe watching eating videos can help curb the appetite. But I guess I’m more wrong than right, since my post was removed. But that’s fine. No big deal.
Meanwhile, I’ll continue to eat vicariously through mukbang videos, without actually eating … because I’m not easily triggered by food, and have self control… not that I’m criticizing anyone. I’m just saying.
