Waste or Waist

Two different mindsets :) It took me a while to get to a point where I don't need to clear my plate - I can just stop eating when I'm full. No need to make myself uncomfortable for the arbitrary reason of finishing what will no longer be enjoyable due to the quantity. You can save for later but if it's later and nobody has eaten it, maybe it's time to set it out to greener pastures. 

The joke is that "waste" (to throw out) and "waist" (your gut/belly/hips) sound the same. And if you eat something instead of throwing it out, you are not wasting it (throwing it out) but you are waisting it (adding it to your belly).   

A, holding food: I'm not really hungry, but I don't want to waste it.
B: So you're going to waist it?
