It started in eighth grade. I was the perfect weight for my body – 108. Then my dad died and it began.
Year after year after year I gained more and more weight. I ballooned into well, a hot air balloon.
Well, I don’t want to be a hot air balloon anymore. To begin the deflating, this book said I should eat chia seeds because it speeds up my digestion.
They look like beetle carcasses to me. I feel like I’m in that movie The Mummy when I eat them. I wondered if I would have an allergic reaction but I didn’t. They just taste tangy.
Since no rash appeared on my skin and they didn’t taste horrible, I put them in a jar. Then I commissioned my brother in law to make me a spoon, which he did out of olive wood.
Now it’s easier for me to eat beetle carcasses, um I mean chia seeds. And I’ve lost two pounds so they work!
