It Works! Wednesday: Week 6

Let’s talk about poop!

Feel free to run away at any point in this post because I will, in fact, be talking about poop.  Having 2 little kids, a husband and being a nurse has made me totally numb to being grossed out by that bodily function.

You have been warned.

Before I had kids, I never really thought too much about my bowel habits.  I pooped when I needed to and that was it.  Sometimes it would be a daily event, sometimes it would be less frequent than that.

When I got pregnant with Brock, my GI system slowed down and I began to take books into the bathroom with me to help pass the time.  After he was born, I was afraid that I would never be the same.

Honestly?  Post-partum poops were like shitting razor blades and no amount of Colace or FiberCon was going to help me.  I prayed for relief and would hold it until I thought I was going to explode just so I wouldn’t have to face the pain.

Then, after about a year, it got a little better.

And by a little better, I mean it still hurt but I got to the point where the tears eventually stopped.

Then I got pregnant with Adrianna and I repeated the constipation during pregnancy then wishing I could poop like a normal person and not have to hold onto the tub and bite my lip after she was born.

Have I crossed a line yet?

Did I lose anybody?

I hope not because what I’m about to tell you has honestly changed my life.

When I first heard about It Works over 6 months ago, I was skeptical of all of the products.  Even after becoming a distributor, I was hesitant to try the Regular.  I was afraid that it was a laxative (even though they stress in the training that it is not) and that it would make my situation worse.

After I became eligible for $100 in free product, I decided that it was now or never.  I didn’t want to pay for a product that was going to make me miserable so I figured the better situation was that I would get it for free.

I took the plunge and bought a bottle of Regular.  It sat on my counter for another week before I was brave enough to try it.

Other than the fear of a laxative, I was afraid that it would make me gassy & bloated during the day while I was at work.

When I finally worked up the nerve to take the pill, I waited.

I waited for the stomach cramps.

I waited for the uncontrollable gas.

I waited to cry when I finally did go to the bathroom.

Guess what?  I did cry.  But they were tears of happiness.

I couldn’t believe that I could finally go to the bathroom and not wish for death.

Now I take my Regular once/day.  One the rare occasion that I do miss a pill, I can definitely tell.  It’s not as bad as before, but it’s definitely noticeable.
