Weight loss, weight gain....

Weight loss, weight gain
Can you believe my weight’s up again?
You cannot say I do not try enough
But this is one struggle, I’m getting tired of

It’s so easy to pile on the pounds
The fried food, the burgers, the delicious doughnut rounds
It takes a lot of willpower to say no to good cuisine
So here's what I do, less ‘white’ and more ‘green’.

I try to eat right and make the right choices
All my flavour comes from organic food and natural spices
The salt is out, because of water retention
Yet all I see on the scales are numbers rising, what tension!

Just a week ago, I lost 6 pounds
When I was told, my joy knew no bounds,
But it’s got to be back, how do I know?
I feel so bloated and all my bulges are on show!

My tops are tighter, my shorts a lot more snug
Every single item of clothing, clinging like a bear hug
My skinny jeans, are no longer that,
They fit me like leggings and make me look fat!

But I’m not quite ready to buy into the latest fads
Cos I think most of those fads, are made up for the ads
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not out to criticise
But logic tells me, weight can be controlled with exercise!

So off I go again, trainers on my feet
Heading out the door, ignoring the heat
If it’s the last thing I do, I will climb that hill
And then come back home to massage my sore and achy heels!


  1. This is hilarious! I know how you feel sister! It's time for the linen again, and oops got that muffin top again!! comes in various colours!! ha ha!

  2. Seriously, it crept up on me while I was asleep!

  3. Oh! Don't get me started on the yoyoing of my weight!
    I find myself obsessing about it to the point of driving myself mad then I stop and remind myself to be thankful for life, health, good friends and family. That calms me down...that is until the next time I try on an outfit that fit previously and now feels a bit snug! Oh the joys!

  4. Glad you like it! I think shedding the winter coats for spring wear, brought this disaster to light! Oh well...I do have a lot to be thankful for!

  5. hahaha!!! as some wise women told me.....'a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips'!!!

    Nice one!!!!

  6. Love this!!! Tooo funny!!!!

  7. In my opinion, clothes shrink. That's all!

  8. I hate that I can't just "fix" my weight issues once and be done with it. I am over it but I am also over being chunky- so yes sneakers are on my feet as well.
