Scales

I stepped on the weighting scale and I looked up

Afraid of what I’ll see when I look down as the weight may not have dropped.

I crossed my fingers and even my toes

Hoping to end a bit of my woes.

Slowly I looked down, praying the scale would be good to me

And then!

Fudge!

I ate the chocolate fudge

And I did not even budge

Not even once

 

I drank the tea

And what do I see

Healthier, fitter, better me

 

They said I couldn’t

I said I can

They told me I shouldn’t

I told them I am

 

To meet the goal at hand

I didn’t just sit and stand

I took action and took time

Losing weight, is never a crime

Gain

To gain something is good

To gain weight isn’t

Unless skin and bones and bones and skin

You take control and lose it all

Only to gain it all back in a matter of seconds

Sometimes you gain more

Such trouble it has caused

 

But I take control

I refuse to gain it all back

I lost them and lost they shall remain

To gain confidence is the goal

And it shall be
