What's the fear?
Fear of getting too full 

What is Self-forgiveness?
It is the process by which an individual forgives oneself for accepting and allowing self to separate from objective reality, releasing positive and negative value judgments such as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative - as subjective interpretations of reality regarding something or someone that leads to stability as breath. 

Writing Self-forgiveness Statements:

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to fear eating too much - being too full, where I am satisfied but at the same time feeling uncomfortable or feeling my stomach is in pain when full- so desiring to have an extra stomach where i can fit everything in so I can eat more of the tasty foods available in the food court, believing that food is to be enjoyed and that it is here to give me pleasure and as such, i have to partake food from the best restaurants prepared by famous chefs in the planet - where I blame the physical universe for not giving me a lot of money to make that a reality and blame my body for not creating a bigger stomach so i can enjoy more food and be entertained by food - where my desire is directing me rather than see what food is- a substance that is used to nourish the body and not a substance that will entertain me. I realized enjoying its taste expression is okay, but not to abuse it to the point where food is being prepared to taste according to my desires - manipulating its taste, smell and texture for me to be entertained, forgetting what food really is in the process. Through this, I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not even be aware of how much sugar is in one fruit, and therefore not aware of how much sugar is in all the fruits I ate combined when i was fruitarian - which was a lot, and I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to fear being unaware of whether the fruits will spike my blood sugar because I did not care about the body, I only cared about me feeling good about my diet rather than seeing through the veil and questioning why I am judging vegetables and animals as less than fruits instead of seeing that Life is about standing for what is best for all.

Commitment To Correct Myself

I commit myself to when and as I see myself fear being full, bloated and uncomfortable - I stop and breathe. I bring myself back here in physical reality, look at the foods i eat, log it, and see the changes in my log, my weight, my blood sugar, test the portions of food items I eat, work with the body and re-learn how to eat from a starting point of nutrition.

I commit myself to when I see myself unaware of the nutrition in the food I eat - I investigate what food is about, look up the nutrition information of the food item I eat and educate myself realizing that fruits and all food items are not my slave but my equal, so in gratefulness, come to know them through the nutrition that is in them, without judging one as better than others and during my free time(1 once a week), come to know their origin and how they arrive on my table.

I commit myself to assist in creating a life where all can afford to buy food to nourish the body.

I commit myself to expand and redefine the word 'full' as equal to how I change in my starting point when eating

Why am I expanding or redefining words?

Words are like microchips that has in it for example, thoughts, imaginations etc. that is an interpretation of reality in our mind. It is defined within what is best for us, as individuals, which is based on competition within survival of the fittest . So, in expanding or redefining a word our goal is to align its meaning to what the word is in physical reality - which is mutually beneficial for all of us, humans, plants, animals etc. as it is what the word is, realizing that we can forgive ourselves for the meaning we gave it and correct ourselves - giving it a meaning we can live and express ourselves as, in physical reality that aligns to what is best for all -  as Living Words.

Word Web
Filled to satisfaction with food or drink

My Expanded Definition:
Filled to satisfaction with food and drink
Here the satisfaction is a mind satisfaction based on how much entertainment I had while eating the food or while drinking instead of nutrition satisfaction where the body is physically satisfied that it got the nutrition it needs to survive.
