There is a woman I know
who continues to grow.
She became a diet quitter,
so her clothes don’t fit her
and now she’s become bitter.
She failed her diet
after she tried it,
and failed her diet
after she tried it,
Then began to feel no good
so she ate what she could
and continued to feel no good.
She became very disgusted with herself again,
after seeing and realizing she had gained back ten
and wondered how much more she will gain and when.
She saw a picture of herself the other day
and there was nothing else she could say,
but seeing that picture was the very best way
for her to learn the truth about how terribly awful she looked
from eating the many different foods she bought and cooked.
So today she found renewed hope,
determination and ways to cope
with the fact that her weight loss must start now,
today right now, not later, she must learn how.
Exercise is going to be a big part of the plan,
doing it consistently, trying as hard as she can.
Of course the woman I am talking about is me,
that she happens to be me, who else could it be.
In September my son is getting married
my beautiful baby boy, the one I carried.
I do not want to be the mother of the groom
that has to wear ugly clothes with no room
to fit my body in
cloth up to my chin,
hiding my fat within.
Taking pictures, I do not want to have to hide
behind others, because I am too fat and wide.
I want to look beautiful and good
the way I know I could and should,
being a beautiful hottie
with a brand new body.
They will barely recognize me
when they see me full of glee,
as I am not a quitter
and I will not be bitter.
It is time to start
with all my heart.
I must have hope, and a dream
of something other than ice cream.
