Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house,
Nothing would fit me - not even a blouse!
The cookies I'd nibbled, the cake that I'd taste,
food at parties have gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber),
I remembered the marvelous meals I'd prepared.
The gravies, the sauces and beef nicely rared.
The wine and the rum-balls; the bread and the cheese,
The way I never said "No thanks BUT yes please".

As I dressed myself in my husband’s old shirt,
I prepared once again to fit in my skirt.
I said to myself, as only I can:"You can't spend the winter, dressed as a man!"

SO------------away with the last of the favorite dips,
get rid of the fruit cake, crackers and chips.
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished,
'till all the additional pounds have all vanished.

I won't have a cookie-------not even a lick,
I'll smile and chew a celery stick!
I won't have hot puddings, bread or pie;
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry....
"I'm hungry, I'm lonesome and this diet's a bore!"
But isn't that what January is put there for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot,
"Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!"

    Love this! As I just ate a piece of homemade fudge, I realized that I've got to break my sugar habit AGAIN! Thankfully, BLC 24 is right around the corner!

    Love it! So cute and alas maybe a little too true. Thanks for sharing it and January, here we come, although I'm not waiting until then to get things back under control.

    Thanks for sharing this. Very clever and oh, so true. I'm taking this as a warning because I am not quite ready to commit myself to your last three paragraphs. Hoping to avert now and up my exercise!
