Gobbling down truth
Thursday, August 04, 2011
Tonight I made some veggie buffalo wings.
I didn't gobble each one down.
I didn't shove them in my mouth consecutively.
I didn't practically swallow each one whole in a mad race.
I ate slowly, chewed every bite and slowly swallowed my food.
I didn't eat the whole box.
I ate one serving, of 5.
I enjoyed my food.
I savored the taste.
I stopped at 5. Not the whole box. Not even 6 or 7. Telling myself no one would know if I had an extra one.
Truth is, someone would know. Someone would care. Someone who hasn't cared in a long time.
That person is me.
