A few things you don't mention are: actual temps, age or sex of snake, how often the actual schedule of feeding was, etc.

On the opposite end of the scale, my 1.0 Taiwanese Beauty is a voracious feeder...all of the time.

Sorry about the lack of details. It's a male VBB that is 3.5 years old, and feeding day has been every Tuesday since he was a month old. It's about 75f on the cooler side, and almost 90f under the heat lamp, which is obviously off at night. The snake is not overweight at all, and strikes defensively at the food with a loud hiss. If he actually gets a solid bite, it will trigger feeding, but that is rare.
