Ode To A Little Weight Loss!

I took myself around the block
It's only a short 1 mile walk
But at a really rapid pace
My long legs quickly covered space
Thinking of that measuring tape
I pledge to try and get in shape
I weighed myself - I'm not TOO bad
But truth be told, I'm up a tad
My pants feel just a wee bit tight
And zipping up does not feel right
My belly overhangs a bit
When I crouch or when I sit
A simple thing to cut back food?
Not when in a craving mood!
NO MORE to see a scale that tips!
(If only I could give up chips!)
Mother of Invention, wishing I could just lose that few extra pounds...without dieting!!!

Oof. And I just finished up Yank Thanksgiving Dinner.

My pants are more than just a little tight right now...

I find the more I deprive myself of the pleasures of life, life is less pleasurable.

Cheers!

Diana: I know that feeling too well, even if I haven't just had a huge meal!

Kilroy: Hmm...why does that sound so profound?! You still on that Turkey high?!!

Have an enjoyable Thanksgiving!

I do hate that little roll that hangs out above my pant waist. I'm convinced that exercise and smaller portions are the answer. You can still reward yourself with some small treat each day!

I find lately that it helps to lean against a wall when putting on my underwear... I look like an Orangutan!

Fennymun:It's difficult for me anytime!

Maggie: And I haven't even had kids let alone twins so I have NO excuse!

Barbara: It is annoying and uncomfortable even though it's not many pounds!

Steve: You break me up! I found myself doing that in the changeroom at swimming!

Laying down on the bed helps as well!

I get you completely. It would be great for extra pounds to just disappear without the work involved.

lol! :-D

This was definately worth coming by for!

I was going to suggest the lying on the bed thing (oh, how often did I do that with drainpipes that I'd taken-in down the legs so they were sooooo tight I walked like a robot!!! :-D)

I know this feeling sooOOOoooo well!

But, MOI, you do have a damned good excuse for putting on those extra pounds - your illness, which can sometimes make moving around difficult (you're not going to lose a lot of weight sitting on your backside! ) and the tablets to counter-act the pain etc... two very good excuses!!!

Give up chips!!???!! Never!

Old Lady:
Yeah, I used to do that with freshly washed, very shrunk and tight blue jeans before high school dances!

Brooksba: I'm not into that much work! I'm sure it takes more work to take of just a few pounds!

Annelisa: Oh, well, if you're handing out excuses freely, lame as they are, I'll gladly take one and release myself from the guilt of over-indulging! I was weaned on ripple chips and dip!


Meno: Yes, it could be my poem for every day! Glad you all know the feeling so well. I'd hate to be alone in this one!

Truly ingenious rhyming. ^_^ Downright entertaining, too. (I keep a stash of chips in my room. I'm sizing it up now. *grin*)

So glad I chanced upon your poetry. Scrolled down to view "Wish I Weren't Such A Pain!" and also thoroughly enjoyed the read. I hope to see more.

Be blessed.
