in this poem i am taking a lighhearted pop at myself and my inability to diet or accept me as i am. maybe one day......

Another Diet?
 
Weight Watchers, Atkins
I’ve tried them all
At 5Foot 2inches
I’m not very tall
 
I try not to eat
Too much each day
Why won’t the weight come off
To the scales I say
 
A bar of chocolate
I’ll just have one
No lunch today
I’ll have to starve
 
It still won’t shift
I’ll try something new
The latest fad diet
That’s what I’ll do!
 
Breakfast a Shake
Lots of water
By Eleven I’m hungry
A lamb to the slaughter
 
I see the chocolate
And again I’m lost
I’ll start tomorrow
Some more toast?
 
Just one slice with butter
That’s all I’ll have
No dinner for me
I’ll have to starve!
 
I know the answer
I’ll just stop dieting
This is me
The way I am
 
Like me or hate me
I just don’t care
I cannot diet
It’s really not fair
 
I want to be thin
I want to be fit
But I’m just me

So that is it!

Oh boy, Snow... have you opened a can of worms!!!! Maybe we should come up with a "Booksie Diet" poem so that all of us that want to can lose some weight!! A humorous, 'poke fun at yourself' piece that works!.....Jerry

thanks for your comments jerry. the booksie diet poem sounds like fun. i think i will be ieting for the rest of my life to find the 'perfect' diet. i may even have fun(!) finding it. pity there isn't a chocolate diet that made you lose weight. that would be a real winner.
be well

thanks kb. i hate the word too. i believe too much time is spent worrying about what we look like and what we should look like. at some point we have to learn to like what we are. this comes from the person who has spent the last 20 years on some kind of diet or another!!!! lol
take care
