I eat way too fast! Any ideas how to slow down?
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
--Okay, so I have always eaten fast since I can remember. When I was young my sister would eat everything up if I didn't eat quickly. I can remember leaving my pudding in the refrigerator to eat later and it would mysteriously disappear. Then I joined the military and anyone who has been in knows you have to eat quick there. Well, now I find I am still eating like I only have a few minutes to eat. My husband (bless his skinny butt) eats slowly and I end up staying at the table and eating more and before I know it I'm all swelled up like a tick!
--Anyhow, has anyone any good ideas on how I can slow down? I have tried to count between bites and sometimes my husband can remember to prompt me with "Hun, nobody's gonna steal that from you!" but often I've sucked it down before I remember to slow down!
