Remove the toilet, pull the old wax ring and check to see that the flange which holds the toilet bolts is not broken. Install a new wax ring and reset the toilet. Don't over-tighten the nuts. Add more fiber to your diet.

In addition, there are plastic wedges to stabalize the toilet if it does not sit securely on the floor. TB

Only one person is supposed to be on the toilet.
