Working For A Healthier Tomorrow

I plan to get to 120 lbs by Oct. 1, 2015.

I haven't really been here in years, but since I left I gained almost everything I had lost. There is a silver lining. I lost a good bit of it. I was close to 140 lbs., but I let old habits come back.

I had to read this poem for English 102, but it kinda made me think. So I thought I would add it to my page.

"Barbie Doll"

This girl child was born as usual
and presented dolls that did pee-pee
and minature GE stoves and irons
and wee lipsticks the color of cherry candy.
Then in the magic of puberty, a classmate said:
You have a great big nose and fat legs.

She was healthy, tested intelligent,
possessed strong arms and back,
abundant sexual drive and manual dexterity.
She went to and fro apologizing.
Everyone saw a fat nose on thick legs.

She was advised to play coy,
exhorted to come on hearty,
exercise, diet, smile and wheedle.
Her good nature wore out
like a fan belt.
So she cut off her nose and her legs
and offered them up.

In the casket displayed on satin she lay
with the undertaker's cosmetics painted on,
a turned-up putty nose,
dressed in a pink and white nightie.
Doesn't she look pretty? everyone said.
Consummation at last.
To every woman a happy ending.

-Marge Piercy

Hi there. I've been tooling around Spark checking in on B'ham folks, and I stopped by your page. I went to your page at FanFiction.net, and wow! That's impressive! I really liked how you provided links to the artwork illustrating your characters and important aspects of the stories. Good job!
I also tried to find you work on FictionPress.com, but you're not listed as a user anymore.
