Mike - Ha! #4 (eating small bites & putting fork down between bites) is hardest. It seems like it should be easiest as it doesn't involve any deprivation, but it's really hard to remember to do it. Maybe I could invent a fork that delivers an electric shock if held for longer than 10 seconds. When I concentrate on the taste of the food, I've found that I get just as much flavor from a small bite as from a large one for pretty much everything. So taking small bites is a way to extend eating pleasure (if it's something good). But I've eaten quickly for so many years, it's a hard habit to break.
Jenn - way to go on the vegetables.
Hope - *** I am eating my fatigue.**** That sentence really resonated with me. I think that's what I did - I'm going to think about that for a bit.
Mern - yes, you CAN do it!
