Twas the month after Christmas........

Twas the month after christmas, and all through the house,
nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I`d nibbled, the eggnog I`d taste....
All the holiday festivities 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 slumber)
I`d remember the fabulous meals I`d eaten
The gravies and sauces and mashed potatoes, well beaten.
The wine, the bread and the cheese,
And the way I`d never said, "no thank you, please"!
As I dressed myself in my baggy ole shirt,
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt.
I said to myself, as only I can
"you can`t spend winter the size of a man!"
So away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the cheese, every cracker and chip.
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished,
Til all the additional ounces have vanished.
I wont have a cookie, not even a lick
I`ll want only to chew on a celery stick.
I won`t have hot pizza or pie,
I`ll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I`m hungry and would like to eat more
But isn`t that what January is for!
Happy new year to all and to all a good diet!!~
