'Twas the Week After Xmas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

'Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house

Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I'd nibble, the eggnog I'd taste

All the holiday parties had 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'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;

The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared...

The wine and the rumballs, the bread and the cheese

And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt

And prepared once again to battle the dirt...

I said to myself, as I only can

"You can't spend a winter dressed like a man!"

So...away with the last of the sour cream dip,

Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip.

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished

'Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie, not even a lick,

I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have hot biscuits, or cornbread, or pie,

I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore...

But isn't that what January is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot

Happy New Years to All and to All a Good Diet

Cheryl, I love that poem!

I came home from the cruise with a one-pound loss because of all the extra walking I did, but with Christmas and New Year's, I have definitely gained a few. It's definitely time to get back on the diet! lol
