I don't like breakfast. But it's supposed to be so good for me...

I have never been big on breakfast first thing. My ideal breakfast time would be, normally, 2-3 hours after I get up. But I've heard you should eat within 45 minutes of waking. The problem is that if I eat right after I get up, I feel hungry all day long. When I don't eat right away, I eat much smaller portions all day. Even when I eat breakfast regularly -- and yes, I've gone through periods of my life where I did -- this happens, I eat more than I should, and hit the cycle of feeling bad about myself for eating too much.
I really think my body does fine not eating for a few hours after I get up. I feel like it's better for me overall and I feel like my energy level is not affected. So why don't I feel like I fit in to this truism that I NEED to eat breakfast?
