Draz, Just Look Away

What is it about this surgery that has made me lose all sense of privacy? I post pictures of myself in swimsuits, yell my weight out loud, and now, lovely BOOBS, I'm going to talk about poop.

Yep, I am.

I have unfortunately experienced my first full-fledge case of constipation. It got so bad that on Sunday I had to do things to myself that no one should ever have to do, and when it was over, I weighed 4 lbs less than I had at the start of the day.

Now, I'm paranoid because I do not want to ever go through that again. I am now adding benefiber to my coffee and water and also taking a probiotic every day for "colon health". My husband said I seem to be completing my transition to a 70-year-old woman quite nicely (ass!). But he's right, because now in addition to my haggard boobies, I have a counter full of products to help me poop.

If I log on to tell you I've fallen and can't get up next week, don't say I didn't warn you.


  1. i hate poop problems.
    I like the weight loss that shows when there over tho :)

  2. I swear I burst out laughing at the addition to my haggard boobies, I have a counter full of products to help me poop...

    I take a gummy vitamin that my kids take...that has added fiber in it...and I go daily...sometimes twice daily. I also try to take a cup of milk of magnesia once a week (when I remember) to clean me out.

    I'm sorry you had to go through that.

  3. Hehe, this made me giggle. I feel ya, that's all I'm gonna say. LOL

  4. For real - I read the title and nothing else. I can only assume this was about the P word and I cannot deal. I love you for warning me.

  5. I swear I'm laughing WITH you and not AT you!

  6. Oh hun I'm sorry to be laughing but it's really just the way you said it. I'm glad things are "moving in the right direction" now. LOL

  7. oh, you just crack my shit up! haha, i'm funny.

    but really, i'm sorry you have to go thru that.

    (still kinda giggling about it) But all because i luv you!

  8. hahahahaha!! Don't worry about the 70 year old thing, I'm right there along with you!! And.. there's about a dozen cats around here that are lookin' like they need a good home...........

    Enjoy your weekend!

  9. I hear you...after my thyroid removal in December, I took Percoet...I had the most horrific constipation of my life. It was harder than having a C-section...I never knew constipation could be so horrific...since then I've been a probiotic yoghurt addict. Glad you feel better...It must have been quite a reief 4 lbs? Sheesh...I'm glad you are no longer suffering!

  10. it. Sounds like you are doing fine with fixing the issue.

  11. Holy crap that is funny!!!! :)
