    SLIMMING WORLD


    Chocolates, crisps and biscuits
    Never stretched my tum
    I'd eat all put infront of me
    ‘Till I became a mum

    But as family expanded
    My clothes kept getting bigger
    Baggy jumpers were my friends
    They hid my wobbly figure

    I wasn’t happy with my size
    But found it hard to diet
    With goodies always in the house
    You really ought to try it

    Several times I’d tried to slim
    Much to everyone’s dismay
    I was miserable and grumpy
    People kept out of my way

    No diet seemed to suit me
    As I found out to my cost
    I’d lose some pounds, give it up
    Put back more than I’d lost

    A question from my daughter
    Became the final straw
    “When is the baby coming?”
    My fat could stay no more

    Feeling nervous and embarrassed
    I sought out Slimming World
    And straight away was put at ease
    A new life had unfurled

    I discovered two new eating plans
    Labelled red and green
    So many different choices
    To help me become lean

    It really was amazing
    Such a lot to eat
    Whole family joined the eating plan
    There was no need to cheat

    The weight began to fall off
    I really was impressed
    And with friends' encouragement
    I never got depressed

    With my dress size getting smaller
    And my confidence increasing
    I found myself looking forward
    To my weigh in at each meeting

    Now the compliments keep coming
    I really do feel great
    All you need is Slimming World
    To help you lose that weight!

    Thank you both.

    I should say that the author of the above poem is Unknown I'm afraid.
