Diet Poem

Black and Taupe Squiggles
Scale with bow


It may taste sweet upon your lips
But it won't look pretty when it's hugging your hips

So when temptation lurks and tempts you to stray
Run from it quickly and Pray, Pray, Pray

Then on the scale, you will proudly see
The pounds drop off miraculously

And when they ask "How did you do it?"
Confidently say "God got me through it"


I wrote this poem in 2008. Weight was never a problem when I was younger but after I had a hysterectomy in my forties everything changed and weight became a struggle.

We think when we are young that things will be okay but honestly, we need to care for our bodies at a young age and make decisions that will keep our bodies from future illnesses ,high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high sugar levels, just to name a few. Those little fat cells are making their plans and will creep up on you if you don't take control.

Take special care of your bodies because it is one thing that you will never be able to replace. Remember to excercise, eat healthy, drink water and give yourself a Celebration day when you have reached your next goal.

Losing weight can be fun. Do what makes you happy to get healthy. I love to wear cute workout outfits and makeup. I workout three times a week on my wonderful Total Gym (this sat in my closet as an extra hanger for years.)
I don't go to a gym because I DON'T like to sweat and I don't like anyone elses sweat. My husband says that the people that use the equipment ALWAYS wipe down the equipment when they are done but I know better. I have been to a gym (many years ago) and yes they are supposed to do it but NO many do NOT do it.

I also have a little trampoline that I use two days a week, ten minutes each time, boy does that give me a workout. I turn on some disco music and jump away.

I also recommend hanging one of your favorite outfits (either old or new) in your closet that you can see everyday and picture yourself wearing it out to celebrate! I have a fancy dress that I continue to guide my weight by, but unfortunately have not had the occassion to wear it, I may have to wear it to the grocery store.

I wish you luck on your journey and remember you need to do this for you to stay healthy and enjoy life.
