Falling Off The Wagon-The worst part is, you swear you won't. You swear you won't, and then you do, and then the evening is lost. ~Ben No

What is it about stress that makes a person eat? The stress level here at Casa Dargen is through the roof. Sean is flying out of town for an interview on Tuesday. If he accepts the job we will be moving to Arkansas. Talk about stress!

Today, my mom and I went out for shopping and lunch. We had gyros and falafels for lunch. Then tonight for dinner I made my version of Maggiano’s House salad, bowtie pasta, and chicken parmigiana. It was fattening and absolutely delicious. But did I stop there? No. After dinner I hate 4 huge pieces of English toffee.

Seriously, what is wrong with me? We have been eating so crappy the past week and half. I have had no motivation to cook dinners each night, which means take out. I feel like I am getting fatter not skinnier. My trainer is going to kill me when I tell her of my recent eating habits. It is like I have fallen part way off the wagon and am holding on with one hand.

How do I pull myself up? I want to be the one driving the wagon not just hanging on. I think once Sean finds a new job everything will get back to normal. I wish I were the type of person that doesn’t eat when they are stressed or depressed. Hmmm, I wonder if I can change my way of thinking…

I have found the miracle pill and I’m not kidding! I didn’t know anything about it until I started working for a Public Relations company a few weeks ago. A reporter told us about this all-natural dietary fiber that is able to bind to dietary fat and make you lose weight. The fiber pill is called FBCX and pronounced f-bex. We followed the directions and took it with our 3 meals a day, without changing our diet, and we started loosing weight. I couldn’t believe it since I was afraid to try anything else for fear it would make me jittery or nauseous. Since FBCx is an all-natural dietary fiber, I didn’t have to worry about any of this. The website we did research on is www.fbcx.com if you want to learn more or join in on our success.
