Buttons and Calories

A button on my shirt will not stay if I keep on eating away. Everybody agrees that it doesn’t look right if a shirt I wear appears too tight. I have to give my eating habits a rest if I want to stop the burgeoning of my chest. What an embarrassing predicament when I can’t find any clothes that will fit. If I don’t want anymore buttons to pop, my eating habits are what I have to stop.
