Remind Myself To Eat Slow


Tuesday, August 20, 2013


After reading a blog. LETHA wrote made my stop and think of how I eat. At 4:30 am eating slow is no problem. The rest of the day is a question.

Do I really know what I am eating?
What did it taste like?
Was it in my calorie range?
How many things do I have to take off my menu for today to make up for it?
Was it worth it?

Point is I need to slow down, and take time to enjoy what I am eating.

Funny story
When our youngest grandson was 3 he would stop eating and come over to me when we were eating. He would put his hands on my cheeks when I hand food in my mouth and push my cheeks. Then he would say "CHEW, CHEW, CHEW ,SWALLOW"
His mother would yell at him. I said he was ok, but didn't under stand until now why he did it.
Every time I sit down to eat I will remind myself what my grandson told me.

    He is right. I do that chew,chew but don't you notice half way through the food gets cold

So it is something we have to learn eat slower and not eat fast and Nook it when it gets cold.. .

    Oh wow. That was so insightful for such a young child huh? Lol. I understand. I find now that I mostly eat at the table instead of the TV that I take my time and enjoy my food more. :)
