Poetry # 180 Not Much

I don't know why I can't lose weight ,
I really don't eat that much;
Just my fruits and veggies
And eggs and meats and such.

Sometimes (but not too often)
I'll have a piece of cake
Or perhaps a hot fudge sundae
Or some cookies that I bake.

I don't know why I can't lose weight;
I really don't eat that much.
Just cheese and breads and cereals
And hamburgers and such.

If I buy a hot dog,
I'll have a plate of fries
And if they come with gravy,
I'm pleasantly surprised.

I don't know why I can't lose weight;
I really don't eat that much.
Just three square meals every day;
Desserts and snacks and such.

I eat a little sandwich
With my mayonnaise
And cold potato salad
On long, hot, summer days.

I don't know why I can't lose weight;
I really don't eat that much.
Just fudgicles and ice cream
And chocolate bars and such

A Thousand Island salad
Is really nice for lunch,
With crispy, crumbled bacon
To give it added crunch.

I don't know why I can't lose weight;
I really don't eat that much.
Just cheesies, nuts and pretzels
And potato chips and such.

I love a creamy milk shake,
Or an ice cream soda pop,
Or a cup of rich hot chocolate,
With marshmallows on the top.

I don't know why I can't lose weight;
I really don't eat that much.
It must be all that diet coke
And tomato juice and such.

stop eating full stop

No full stop.

I love it. I just heard my sister say something to that affect but she wasn't as honest or poetic..lol

Thanks. You read it to her.

I like that, it has made me so laugh!!<br />
I was on the phone yesterday to my friend and we were moaning on about our weights. I was telling her how I only eat like a bird and have no idea how I stay this fat! When later I was doing my nice 'healthy salad' when I realised I was heaping on huge dollops of garlic mayo and cheese!! LOL

That'll do it.

That was so very cute. Now I'm hungry!

Well, eat. Just don't eat it all.

Nice food, I love it too........

Thanks, and do you manage to lose weight on it? Well, looking at your avatar, you probably are just the perfect weight. So cute. Just look at that expression.

This is the cutest thing I have ever read in my entire life.

Thank you, you must have lead a very sheltered life. LOL Try reading Ogden Nash. Now, there was a TALENT. But I appreciate your kind words. They did give me a warm glow of pleasure upon reading them and a smile too.

This was sooo adorable and true in some cases!! :)

Definitely true in my case.
