Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words
(or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.
Our words were:
add, all, basic, being, bit, determined, hidden, knew, lean, lurking, measured, more, show, sneer, started, there, tin, tired, treat, wobble, work.
She knew week one would be the worst,
The diet started on January 1st.
No more chocolate or biscuit treats,
Basic meals of veg and lean meats.
Everything measured and added up
Syns, or calories, by measuring cup.
The scales were lurking to laugh and sneer
But determined, she showed no fear,
Getting on, they wobbled a bit
But standing there in her birthday kit
They finally stopped and she looked down,
Hurrah! It’s worked, she’d lost a pound!
Only twenty more to go
She could do it, it wasn’t for show,
She was so tired of being fat
DIET stood for Did I Eat That?
She’d show them all when she was slim,
Thank god she’d hidden the biscuit tin.
