My Next Career will be Competitive Eating

So it seems that I may be eating too fast. I've recently had suspicions of this when I started noticing that I finish dinner before Max (sometimes WAY before) and he doesn't take much more food than I do.

I've attributed this to the fact that I have short lunches at school and must finish all of my food within a certain time frame. Because there are copies to run, phone calls to be made, emails to write, and kids to teach! Who has time to chew?

I guess this carries over to dinner time. Tonight, I ate an entire plate of food (spaghetti, green beans, and two pieces of garlic bread) in four minutes flat. I was really hungry, and also, there is Internet that must be searched, and TV that must be watched! I was aware that I was eating too fast because at one point, I flung spaghetti onto the floor and all over my pajamas. I told myself: "Sarah, slow down". But my body wouldn't listen. Just kept shoveling it in.

I guess I'll have to wait until school is out to be civilized...

It's worse if you eat so fast that you miss your mouth and poke your face with the fork...

Me too! I think it's because we eat less than our dinner companions:) BB

This post cracked me up b/c I can relate! And Rebekah, I laughed out loud at your comment. :) All tell-tale signs of eating too fast. Sarah, I do the same thing at work, scarf down in like 3 min, then move on due to no time...for dinner, getting food to my body before my hunger peaks is vital for slower eating!
