I eat most meals along also, but I have been single my whole life, (I'm 49 now) and I am use to it. It does not bother me. I eat in front of the TV; I actually slow down and eat slower that way. If I were to eat in a completely quiet house I would just end up eating too quickly and probably eat more than I should. My only exception is when I eat outdoors; sometimes when the weather is nice, I take my meal out on my porch and sit at my table out there; not sure why, but I don't mind eating in the quiet then.

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

three kids and a hubby but by the time I make their plates and drinks, I'm usually the last at the table, but I kinda prefer to eat alone.

Since my wife works at home, I eat alone often. I'm used to it.

I eat alone most nights, sorry but I have the TV on and I stand up at the kitchen counter to eat. I know this is not recommended but it works for me.

I am trying to eat mindfully; so I actually look forward to some meals by myself so I can really practice it.
