Yesterday, I had another customer at my register notice I had lost weight.
It was somebody I used to see all the time over at Panera Bread which is right near the Walmart where I work.
She said how they missed me over there,
I told her it wasn't their fault they lost a frequent customer,
it was mine.
I know they serve healthy food there,
But to get there, I have to go past the pastry display which is right in front of me,
And a compulsive eater like myself
just can't resist it.
Especially those cinnamon crunch bagels,
which are stuffed with enough calories,
without the cream cheese that goes with it.
So, I have to stay away from that place. It's too much temptation.
It's not really their fault, it is mine. I hold the fork.
So I had to say goodbye.
I'll never forget you. I'll miss you,
But I can never go there again. That food made me fat.
I wish you luck, and a fond farewell.
I found a new love.
A new hope.
And I wouldn't give this up for all the cinnamon crunch bagels in all the world.
I'm so happy. And I want to share the happiness.
Wish the same for me and you.
