Slowing down while eating really does stop you from over eating and eliminates a good bit of calories. This was a hard one for me because I always ate as fast as i could to finish before my babies were done. Now I take a bite and spoon feed my youngest a couple of bites which is training me to slow down. Plus, I find dinner a little less stressful and I enjoy my food more.

Streamlining My Friend Feed's activities and blogs
I have a large and active Spark friends list and a slow connection -bad combo. So I handle my huge friend feed lists this way. First I read all my Spark articles e-mails, earning my points for each one, which gives me six new windows, I click on friend feed on each window, and then go back to the first, click all my likes and comments, then click on blogs on each feed, reading and commenting on one while the others are still loading.
I am able to get around to more blogs this way with my slow connection in a shorter time. Also, in huddling, when you click on a blog, you get a new window as well, so when I do all my huddles, I use those extra windows to tackle my friend feed too
Slow down - eat slower. It takes your brain time to catch up with what you're eating. Put down your fork or spoon in between every single bite - you'll be amazed at how slowing down and taking time to enjoy/savor your food helps!4
