I used to believe that if I ate a lot of junk food in a week, I'd get so fat that my belly would be too big for my clothes and I'd have to roll around!

I used to think that I could eat a lot of food at Thanksgiving, but my stomach size would show my limit. I thought that if I got too full, my belly would reach the table and my belly button would pop out!

When I was about 6 I was told you can't go swimming after eating a meal because you'll get a cramp and drown. This didn't scare me. Instead I wondered how anyone could drown when all they had to do was just keep swallowing the water until they could stand again.

When I was about 11 I told my 9 year old step sister at the time that if she ate enough otter pop Popsicles that her vocal chords would freeze and shed lose her voice and not have to go to school the next day. My sister then proceeded to eat a good 15-20 before my mom found out what I had said.

When I was about 3 or 4 years old I used to think that grilled cheese sandwiches were called "Girl cheese sandwiches" Because of this I thought it was against the law to eat one if you were a boy. I knew i was able to eat them but i got kinda freaked out when my brother ordered one in a restaurant one time.

I used to believe that when you ate food it filled you up starting at your toes and feet, all the way up until you felt it in your belly, and that meant you were full.

When I was little, my mother would cook pasta quite frequently and I would dread it because I had somehow been convinced that the noodles had once been a living animal. I remember crying into my plate and apologizing after every bite when I was alone.

top belief!

When I was younger I was convinced that my stomach was divided into different sections and that I had to chew my food on different sides of my mouth to direct it to the right spots. I would separate the crunchy bits from the marshmallows in my Lucky Charms and only chew the crunchy bits on the left and the marshmallows on the right. I thought if they got mixed up my stomach would explode.

When I was about six, my friend told me that I wasn't swallowing properly. She said you have to swallow on the left side of your throat, and I was swallowing in the middle... I became very paranoid about my eating habits for a while.
