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
Down and lost
You feel like quitting.
I see your pain, though you hide it.
Yet even in moments when everyone lost hope on you
Every moment of sadness
You reach for that glimpse of glory.
You are the best when you are defeated
Because it is in those moments, you show that you can still shine.
Shed those extra pounds
Let’s do it all again
You did it before
You can do it once more
Move your butt and feet
Get going and never admit defeat!
Go on, just lose it
The pounds, the kilos
The numbers show me and they do not lie
When I saw the numbers, I could almost die.
The scale it taunts me
Told me of the truth and of my fault
So my guilt starts to rise
I could either change fate or meet my demise.
Will I ever lose the pounds I gained?
I’m drifting to isolation again
Confidence gained is now confidence lost
And I have but myself to blame the most
Spare me the sweet talk and tell me straight
That I’ve once again gained weight
Still haunts me to this day when I think about the time
When I was so afraid to lose you,
You were my poetry, my rhyme
But we’d just lose it all, who knew?
No one told me it was fleeting and I got caught up
Too afraid, so I didn’t move
I looked around and I stopped
I was afraid of losing you but I lost you all the same
Shed those extra weight
Remove all self hate
Driving oneself to the distance
It takes a lot of hard work, give yourself a chance
Don’t give up now, you’ve come a long way
Show them what you’re made of now insead of waiting for someday
Sweat it out and enjoy yourself
I go on and tell this to myself
No one will do it for me
And so I go at it, in the end we shall see
I count the calories
I weigh the scale
I am becoming more and more obsess
I know I have to control this
I know there is a limit
But to achieve what has never been, I have to do this
I fall into the pit
The one I did not want to fall into
It is a decision I made
No backimg out now
No end, not until the goal is met
I think too much of slimming down
I’m close to obsession
I just want to be physically healthy
But does that mean I have to be mentally ill?
I do not know anymore
I feel helpless
They do not lie
They reveal more than you can tell
And it’s clear
Very clear to see
You have lost it
You’ve been losing sleep
