What then?

Post  Lucie on Mon Apr 09 2012, 04:05

If I gave up bread and biscuits
And butter, milk and cheese
Oh-sure, I'd loose a few pounds
But what foods would ever please?

If I gave up drink and chocolate
And confectionery treats
What would I buy out shopping?
What's left for me to eat?

If I leave out lamb and roasties
And stuffing with yorkshire puds
I'm left with a plate o'broccoli
Now, that can't be right nor good.

Pasta, rice and potato
Are off the list as well
Tuna and cucumber salad
Washed down with water (Oh swell!)

There's no nourishment in salad
And I don't like veg or fruit
I'm having so much trouble
Making a list of foods to suit!


.....

At the start of every week
With good intentions at the ready
The first few hours of the day
Go well, I seem to keep quite steady

But soon i find that dreadful fridge
And for all the best laid plans
Are lost in nano-seconds
I am no longer counting grams!

The hunger pains were stronger
Mr Willpower..up and went,
And so I start tomorrow
With another day of lent!

You see,I am not serious
For as i write these silly ditties
I tap with coffee in my hand
Whilst munching chocolate bickies!

L-O-L! Well, weight is the least of my issues (though I need to lose tons:-) but changing how I FEEL is my most valid reason for sticking with it. Seems all my cravings are gone too:-) I survived the family eating carrot cupcakes and Flan yesterday!

Love this poem Lucie! sunny
