For those who have made a New Years resolution to lose weight.

No Pain No Gain

I think that I will diet
I really must lose weight
Cut out all the goodies
A new figure to create

I need to lose a good few pounds
Well in truth a good few stone
It's not going to be easy
For overweight I have grown

I put it down to Christmas
And all that excessive food
Yes I suppose the odd bottle
In the end did me no good

Yes all that pigging out
Has left me feeling less than great
If I don't start that diet
What will be my fate?

I'll cut out all the sweet things
Restrict the calories that I eat
Exercising a bit every day
At last I'll be able to see my feet

Footnote: For those using the metric system of weight: 2.2 pounds equals 1 kilogram. 1 Stone equals 6.35 kilograms.

I agree with Teala, it has humor but at the same time its very serious, it talks about a very serious issue. I was smiling the whole time I read it!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Very good, I love the humour behind this, as well as being serious--I am currently having my own "battle of the bulge"!!
