For years, I was in denial about my weight and what it was doing to me. As the Beatles once said, living is easy with eyes closed.
When I was at the doctor, I closed my eyes when I weighed in. I didn't want to see it.
And the constantly gaining weight wasn't there. I couldn't see it.
I never took my blood sugar,
What you can't see can't hurt you, right?
It continued with what I was eating, the calories I was taking in.
I'd go to the local fast food place,
order a supersized meal,
with a Diet Coke.
That canceled out the calories, right??
Please don't laugh.
I'd do the same at the buffet restaurant.
get seconds and thirds,
and make up for it by going to the salad bar.
even if it was drenched in high-fat dressing and other stuff.
It's green, so I was eating healthy, right?
Please stop laughing.
It'd be funny if it wasn't tragic.
I'm surprised my pants didn't catch fire,
with all the lies I was living in.
I'm really glad I finally opened my eyes,
And saw the truth of what I was doing to myself.
And I'm free.
I took the path to happiness
which I'm on now.
The past, it is in the past.
I've learned from it, and can now laugh at it. Back then, I was crying.
I'm living in the light, and liking it!
No longer hiding in the sand.
Have a great day!
