12 days Of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas 
My true love sent to me
Twelve extra pounds
Eleven lots of will power
Ten ways to cook tofu
Nine work out cd’s
Eight health warnings
Seven ryvita biscuits
Six types of muesli
My five a day
Four calorie counters
Three sets of scales
Two low fat yoghurts
And one new diet for me

Owen Yeates

    by the way, you were sweet to hope the best for my grandma in that night before Christmas poem. That story is very loosely based on a typical american holiday dinner and the plot with grandma was all made up!

    hahaha, I can see where YOUR head is at this christmas. I did one about my hubbie and it's not nearly as good as this one is. in other words, I am really talking down my husband's bad habits!!! this one looks saintly by comparison to mine.
