Twas the Night Before Weigh In

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Twas the night before weigh in, when all through my house...
Not a calorie uncounted for, not even a ounce!

My workout clothes were washed and hung in the bathroom with care...
In hopes for weight loss that would soon be there!

My boys were all in their special place....
While visions of success danced across my face!

And me in my doo-rag and hubby in his hat....
The family settled down, but Oh My, we forgot the cat!

When out in my kitchen there arose such a clatter...
The cookies in the pantry fibbing and saying we won't you fatter!

So I rushed to the dinning room and peeked at the pantry...
Realizing better choices are the way for me!

When what to my wandering mind should appear.....
The weight loss God and his community near!

With a little thought so lively, not dull....
I knew in a moment it must be SparkPeople!

More rapid than weight loss along with exercise
He whistled and shouted for he told me no lies!

Now weight loss, Now life so happy and real....
On water, on blogs, and communities, that's the deal!

To the top of the kitchen, to the top of the wall....
Now pounds, dash away, dash away, dash away all!

Such is this SparkPeople life I've chosen.....
No time to waste, I can't be frozen!

SparkPeople has taught me my choice is a healthy life....
To lose weight, be active, to live without strife!

A change is mine certainly to make....
So tomorrow's weigh in will be a piece of cake!

This night before weigh in doesn't have to be live or die....
Given the right tools, I am able to fly!

So with a wink of his eye and a turn of his head....
I realize the scale I should no longer dread!

He spoke not a word, but gave a wink like a lark....
That's when I knew I was right to Spark!

The weight God sprang out of sight, as he sang such a song.....
I knew right then to be a Sparker was not wrong!

As he flew away deep into the night....
Tomorrow's weigh in would be alright!

Keep Sparking and remember to Believe,
