Bryan never misses an opportunity for a laugh, even when it involves a grocery store scooter.

Day 18

Would kill for something sweet! I mean, I might actually KILL someone -- not really, but this has been such a struggle to rid myself of sugar. I know Jackie says it is the devil, and I know that she is right, but it is still incredibly taxing and irritating. When does it get easier? Can someone wave a magic wand and make the craving go away? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Day 19

Grocery shopping today was super fun. I took the easy and fun way to shop...by electric scooter. They had offered the cart to Joe who turned it down, so I saw the comedy gold and went for it...and never looked back. Nikki and I kept trying to sneak bad food into each other's carts while no one was looking...Very funny. Although being in a regular supermarket was very difficult. So many temptations everywhere! Get me out!!

Day 20

Things are slowly taking a turn for the better. I can finally button a pair of pants that I was unable to button for years. It was a very good feeling. Starting to see a slight ray of light at the end of the tunnel. Feeling better about myself and thankful to Jackie and Craig for helping me get through this.

Bryan-

I usually find you to be quite amusing and charming and I know that you meant no disrespect but that is how I feel after your escapade in the grocery market - disrespected.

For far too many people motorised scooters and wheelchairs are the ONLY way that we can get about. When people fool around in them in public places it leaves a negative impression that lingers. It makes it appear that the mobility devices are not truly necessary and indeed, it appears that they are only a nuisance.

I ask that you take my message to heart as there are real people in those "fun" motorised scooters/chairs- real people with real pain.

Thank you.
