Day 7

Has anyone see the new movie CONSTIPATION? Just kidding, it's not out yet... and Ohhh Boy! I think I have it. Usually the only thing I take to the bathroom with me is a good book, but me thinks there will be fiber in my life soon as I am feeling a little sluggish. I was too tired to go to Wal-Mart and I didn't have my check book and you already know about my ATM card, so I thought I would look online for some brands to pick up tomorrow. It is bad enough you are feeling a little bloated and "off center" but there are way too many choices.

I found over 10 brands and the packaging was crazy. They show people "chatting" happily and laughing like THEY AREN'T CONSTIPATED! I think everybody knows if you aren't "going" you aren't HAPPY and don't feel like CHATTING. Then there so many types to choose from and I am supposed to be on a "decision-free" diet. There is sugar-free, smooth singles, cinnamon spice wafers and my favorite pink lemonade. If I took a pink lemonade fiber product to make me "go," I don't think I could ever have a shakeup at the fair again...oh yeah, I will still be on this diet when the fair comes no big deal (for my daughter Emily, what the heck give me the lemonade).

Also, there were testimonials, "I was constipated for years before I tried this natural supplement,” one of them stated. I want to meet this person because they have stamina.

Okay, other than things being a little sluggish, I am fine. I got in all the requirements today, but I did not get around to a calorie-burning walk. We were very busy at work and I figured I burned off a lot of calories and I have already met my 2000-calorie burn for the week.

Tomorrow is weigh-in. Since I am a stress eater, the stress of thinking about weighing in makes one of those cinnamon spice wafers sound good. I hope I don't find out that in the seven days I have been on the plan I only loose a week.
