Seven Days To Go

Sunday, October 23, 2011

emoticon
The piece of cake I saved is near
One big slice........ I have no fear
Beside no pound will even show
I've got seven days to go !

A day of shopping to the mall we go
For a burger special, it's cheaper you know. emoticon
I'll walk it off I have no fear.
Six days to go no weigh-in is near!

I think I'll skip my tuna sandwich lunch
A ham sandwich is what I'll munch! emoticon
Tuna's getting expensive you know,
Besides, I've got five days to go.

For breakfast one egg, toast and juice. emoticon
Kids left their pancakes! Oh, what's the use?
With inflation, to waste is a sin.
Besides, it's four days till weigh -in!!

Breakfast I'll just have coffee today.
Maybe I'll lose more that way.
Supper a little extra I'll eat.
Three days before those scales, I'll meet!

Boy, this weekend is rough,
Restaurant menus are really tough!
I'll work this steak off have no fear! emoticon

In just two days, I'll be clear!!

Now my nerves are really a wreck.
I might as well eat what the heck!
I'll take two Exlax late tonight.
One day to go, I'll be all right!!

I can't afford to eat-- no way!!
Six trips to the john might save my day.
I gained six pounds, wouldn't you know?
Guess I don't have seven days to go !!!

This was shared at a Weight Watchers meeting
