trying to help those that are feeling the strain today

Hi all.

Just been reading all the posts today, don’t really like to post myself cause I am sure I come across as dull or sometimes patronising but felt I need to post today. Hopefully this comes across the way I mean it and doesn’t make me sounds like a nut.

I can feel some of you out there are finding it very hard and will power is crumbling so wrote this for you.

When times are hard and your willpower goes amiss

Remember why your doing this
You want to be a smaller size, want a smaller tum and smaller thighs

For some that is 10 stone away
for others it is only a day away

Just remember the times you hated your size
and looked in mirrors and wanted to hide
Maybe remember cruel things that were said to you
And how you were addicted to food
You might be on day one or ninety nine
But this is now your time to shine
Your doing so so well so far
Don’t reach for that chocci bar
Keep on going cambridge minimins
It’s your time!! your going to be thin!!!!!

Thank you Kammeg, your whole poem hit the spot today, but these two line jumped out at me!

Just remember the times you hated your size
and looked in mirrors and wanted to hide



Hopeful for the future
Such a nice - and fun - way to give us a gee up, Thanks a lot!!

Please do post as there are so many people here that you'll always gel with someone. The fact that you 'think' you might appear 'patronising' probably means you're far from it ....
So welcome to posting - i do it all the time and witter on about things whether they're relevant or not. No one's been mean enough to delusion me yet thankfully :eek:
Oh Thank you so so much, I hate my size, and when I look in the Mirror, I wanna scream at the moster that stares back, I will let your words reign on my head thru out the weekend, am headed home from work in a minute and I know it's been tough for me to keep off nibbling whilst cooking for my kids, keep posting, you inspire alot of people, today I promise myself not to nibble, however tempting, so help me God, for i cannoit do it by my might.

Thanks kammeg so much for that have been back ss for 4 days and am struggling a little today!!!!!!! your poem has just reminded me why i am doing this THANKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

That's so true, thank you for posting it. And you don't sound like a nut at all :)
Glad that you liked it i know that times can be really hard on this diet and on many diets as you try to get to the size you want to be.

Sometimes get a little shy about psots and stuff and realise now that everyone here is in the same boat and we all want to help each other out - especially those that don't have a very strong support network, are going it alone or have temptation thrown at them daily!

I am here to help anyone that needs it and i think its past experiences and maybe weight confidence issues that make me think sometimes am dull, patronising a nutter! he he

have a great day!!! xxxx


Hopeful for the future
Hi Kanmeg,
Sometimes being a nutter is a good thing!! And thanks for the offer of help and support, but we're here for you too - and please pop in when your day isn't the best either. At the moment I'm ticking along and reading posts like your poem help gee me on ...
