Seeing myself in the mirror I thought,
A diet wouldn't do me any harm,
Losing a few kilos should be helpful,
Overweight could cause some alarm.
First I tried a weight watcher's diet,
Consisting of points I must count,
Many foods allowed, even chocolate,
Though trying, I over-did the amount.
Another said drink lots of water,
Which helps to flush toxins away,
I soon gave up doing that diet,
For I sat on the loo half the day!
Then I read about eating low carb,
High protein, no bread, allowed cream,
Well I liked the sound of this one,
The food list to me was a dream.
But after a few weeks on low carb,
Things didn't work out the right way,
Was the opposite of the water diet,
For it clogged up the works every day.
Maybe a high carb one would be better,
Though no sugar or sweets like before,
Bread and cream were back on the menu,
But my sweet tooth took over once more.
I'm finished with all fad diets,
Found a balanced one holds the key,
For a bar of chocolate in both hands,
Is a well balanced diet for me!
Thank you for your encouraging words and your wonderful style for you make me laugh and you make me smile! Keep doing what you're doing and don't give up for you're worth every effort, here's a big thumbs up!! Have a FANTASTIC DAY, Dear Friend!!

"I'm not old enough to play baseball or football. I'm not eight yet. My mom told me when you start baseball, you aren't going to be able to run that fast because you had an operation. I told Mom I wouldn't need to run that fast. When I play baseball, I'll just hit them out of the park. Then I'll be able to walk."

Thanks a bunch for commenting on my blog, "Friday Temptations, & Reward For Staying On Track." Have a healthy weekend!
"You've heard the old procrastinator's turn of phrase, "Don't do today what you can put off until tomorrow." Well, the same goes for procrastination itself. Put if off until tomorrow. Seize the future you want by seizing the present you have. Get started now â€“ not tomorrow, next week or when you get around to it. "Around to it" never seems to get here."
