Hungry Tummy Growling Loudly

We need nourishment and oxygen or our body dies. My tummy is always telling me he’s hungry by growling at me no matter if I ate or not. Sometimes he is so loud he embarrasses me around people, they'll stop and stare. When is this madness going to ever stop? I don't really eat that much. I eat like a bird. The scales constantly keep lying to me and my clothes keep shrinking in the wash. I’m tired of wearing a girdle to keep my tummy in it just overflows over the top. I want to live a happy life without having to worry what I eat and belly dance. anything that eats breath has one thing in common expelling of waste © 7/26/2015

Hi Eve, I think I agree with Andrea first thing that occurred to me was entry in pooh contest. I have never read this form before but to me it looks a perfect travelogue to your lower intestines. I love it you are one clever lady. Stay safe love Shane xxxx
