    Ode To Losing Weight


    I look in the mirror
    And what do I see?
    A strange woman who
    Looks a little like me.

    I guess I really shouldn't
    Be all that surprised,
    Between old age and desserts
    I have cottage cheese thighs.

    Remembering back when
    I was svelte and thin,
    Wearing scanty clothing
    That were fashionably in.

    Yes, my once hour glass figure
    Is now in dire distress,
    All the sand has reached the bottom,
    I can no longer wear that size eight dress!

    Now as I struggle
    To put on my jeans,
    To fit in my clothing
    Is going to take other means.

    First, a visit to the doctor's
    Is something strongly advised,
    But can her scale handle
    Someone my size?

    I know she will tell me,
    I must count calories and exercise,
    Which means I'll have to eat
    Foods I totally despise.

    Time to go down to the gym,
    Do the Life Cycle and the Nordic Track,
    I'll even give the rowing machine a go,
    But once I row out, how will I get back?

    I'll go out with a friend
    On a long power walk,
    But, with all this puffing and panting,
    I won't be able to talk.

    A diet is on my mind while doing Pilates,
    (While going through unimaginable contortions)
    How in the world can I survive,
    By eating cheesecake in smaller portions?

    I'll be chewing on carrots and celery stalks,
    Me eating salads is going to be amazing,
    Still, I will have to ponder and wonder,
    Won't I look like an old cow grazing?

    I know it may take months,
    And maybe even a year,
    But life will be wonderful,
    Without this big rear.
