TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

The Potty Dilhema

Let me preface this by saying....if you don't want to learn about my business (that is bathroom business) you might want to stop reading now.

Before band I had a tendacy to be a little on the constipated side.  What made me think after band would be so different?

2 days ago my belly was poking out like a small child in a third world country.  I flopped down on the couch moaning and holding my stomach (yes, I am a bit of a drama queen).  My husband didn't even look up from the paper.  So.....I moaned louder, Louder, LOUDER...until....

"What the hell is wrong with you?", he asked (but he really wasn't interested).  "I need to go to the bathroom.  I am stopped up", I complained.  All he said was, "huh".

So.......I took two laxitives.....and waited.

And waited.

And waited.

I read the back of the box.  It said it should work within 6-12 hours.  WTH?  I thought I got a bad box.  So......

I took 3 more..........


I spent the next 8 hours on and off the toilet.  To which my husband replied, "I guess you aren't having any problems now...Einstein". GRRRRRR!

Today, I went and bought fiber gummies and Miralax.

So...my new morning routine....

Fiber gummies, Miralax and 20 oz. of water.  I feel like an 80 year old.


  1. OMG! That was hilarios! I am sorry you had such a bad time with it-but all those laxatives?!! lol What are the names of the gummy laxatives-I need to pick some up!
    You definitely have a gift for writing!
