Crikey the shock as I got on the scales
I seem to have absorbed everything Christmas entails
The food has engulfed my body as a whole
I now have a new resolution surely an achievable goal
I thought they would blow up to be absolutely fair
I got on so slowly, carefully, taking so much care
We all know if you jump on too fast
the numbers go higher our faces aghast
I've tried standing on one leg and even having a poo
but the numbers they rise, my weight stuck on like glue
So I have got to eat less and exercise more
just at this moment though that seems a bit of a chore
I have to say goodbye to all the sugary treats
lattes and cakes with my friends on our meets
My coffee now is black and sugar free
I'm drinking so much water I'm always needing a wee
Ah it will be worth it when I'm a stone or two down
and not looking like a big bloated clown
My pants will be tight no more my friend
and the numbers on those scales will finally descend
Thank you for reading today.
