Am the only one who keeps eating the same foods even though I get stuck on them?

Speaking of getting stuck (my post on eggs yesterday), am I the only one who just keeps on eating the same foods even though I get stuck (a bit) on them when I eat them?

Mostly, it's breads.  But since I just sit up straight and give it a minute and it usually passes, I haven't given up those foods altogether.

Am I the only one?

I was thinking back on some past comments suggesting that perhaps I wasn't getting more fills because that would mean I couldn't keep eating the foods I wanted to.  I took that comment in the spirit it was intended, as helpful and supportive.  At the time, I don't think that was true.  I was just appropriately full.  However, now, that might just be the case.  I like that I'm "normal" when I go out to eat with people and it's not all that obvious that I'm "different."  I may eat less than others but I don't feel like an outcast or anything!

But the compromise there is that I'm giving up potential weight loss in order to keep eating, bottom line.  Time to challenge myself a bit more!


  1. I sometimes have a problem with bread but I always take the gamble. I just have to eat very teeny bites and very very slow.

    I think challenging yourself a bit more is an excellent idea!

  2. Sorry we ordered that bread basket at brunch! I wasn't even thinking! ;O

  3. Oh Nora, I would have ordered it even if I was by myself! "Special occasions" definitely aren't the problem! I was okay with that however, as I cut 1/3 of two of them and stopped at that. Those didn't stick. Too buttery I'm sure!

  4. If I get stuck on a food I am just normally more careful on it next time - smaller bites and chew chew chew hehe
