If at first you don't succeed,
Don't feel bad and start to eat.
Play some music, get on your feet
Dance away from the kitchen,
The food you won't see.
Out of sight, out of mind,
Don't you agree?

A Christmas Poem
'Tis the Season
I love my chocolates,
I love my sweets....
I also want to be slimmer,
So these I will not eat.
Maybe just one, just a taste.
Portion control won't go to my waist.
Family and friends make the season bright.

Boredom sometimes makes me want to write a dumb poem. Gets my thoughts down and keeps me from eating:

However, I will never ... Read more
What if I don't want to walk?
What if I don't want to dance?
Instead I just sit here, I take a chance.

Soon I'm not sitting, I'm on my fee... Read more
Oh Woe is Me!
The scale is waiting to make me cry,

Now I must work to get it off my hips!
I will never fail, I'm back on track!
Please don't judge me, I am back!
I went... Read more

It's Not the Only Way!
Stepping on the scale sometimes isn't good.
It doesn't reward me like I think it should.
I've done my best, I've really tried.
Or so I thought, then I decide,
Scale, you're just a piece of iron,
You have no brain
I won... Read more
Why Doesn't it Go Faster?
It is hard for me to be satisfied with only a 1/2 lb. loss this week but I have to accept it. I am told it is two sticks of butter ....... When I look at two sticks of butter, it is quite a mass of fat (and there were times I could have ea... Read more

I find that blogging and writing dumb poetry helps to keep me motivated on this journey. I can now say I have lost 32 lbs. which equals 128 sticks of butter!

If wishing was all it took, I would be so thin.
It doesn't work that way, so how can I win?
If I were six feet tall I wouldn't be fat.
So I'm gonna get stretched and take care of that!
If You Can't Say Something Nice....
Losing weight isn't easy. I think we all know that. I have decided maybe I shouldn't say I am on a diet although I know I am not on a diet; I am on a lifestyle change. However, when you are trying to lose weight everyone becomes your judge... Read more

No matter how hard I try,... Read more
Rocky Road (and I don't mean ice cream)
The journey to lose weight and reach goal is a rocky one. I am always stumbling on a rock in my path; I teeter and I totter and try to avoid those stumbling blocks, but sometimes I don't. Those rocks come in many forms; water retention, bi... Read more
