Ode to My Indiscretion (and slimmers everywhere)

Reblog, as I’ve temporarily resigned from Slimming World until we get sorted and I can join a new group locally

 

Shock and dismay at my indiscretion,
The scales have moved in the wrong direction,
Wiping the smile off my happy face,
I hang my head and sit down in disgrace.
Looking back, I see where I went wrong,
Crisps were my weakness, my will power gone,
The biscuits were rationed, but helped in my demise
And the joy of meringues I just couldn’t disguise.
There were also three days when some meals I skipped
To cover when I simply should have kept my mouth zipped.
slimming world quoteSo I’ve put it behind me, planning menus each day,
No cheating or lapses, I now cannot delay:
Weighed As and Bs, made a note of my ‘eats’,
All biscuits and goodies now just memory treats.
Everything counts, be it green, good or bad,
Never again do I want a weigh-in so sad.
To put right the wrong plus a pound or two,
I know exactly what I have to do :-
Increase the exercise, walk the dog more,
Keep detailed notes, just more than before.
And be aware of the Syns that can lurk
Where you don’t realise, and refer to The Book!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
