    Hi all

    I was just doing some planning for the new year for school and I came across this poem and I just had to share it!

    The Slimming Poem
    By Pam Ayres

    I'm a slimmer by trade, Im frequently weighed
    I'm slim as a reed in the river.
    I'm slender and lean, and hungry and mean,
    Have some water, its good for your liver.

    Don't give me cheese rolls or profiteroles
    Don't show me that jelly a-shakin',
    Don't give me cream crackers, you picnic and snackers
    Or great big ice-creams with a flake in.

    Don't give me swiss roll or toad in the hole,
    Don't show me that black Forest gateau.
    You sit and go mouldy, you old garibaldi
    Your pastry all riddled with fat.Oh!

    When i'm fat I feel weary and tubby and dreary,
    The stairs make me struggle and grunt,
    And yet I'm so happy and punchy and snappy
    When me hip-bones are stuck out the front.

    No, it's white fish for me, no milk in me tea,
    And if we don't like it we lump it.
    No figs or sultanas, no mashed up bananas
    No pleasure and no buttered crumpet.

    So don't get any bigger, me old pear shaped figure
    i can and I will become thinner.
    So cheer up and take heart, pass the calorie chart,
    let's see what we're having for dinner!

    Just thought it might give someone a giggle!

    Hope all is well in LT land! Im on my own at the mo and have a weigh in tomorrow so hopefully I havent gained anything. Been v lazy with exercise this week I have!
