Maybe Because I'm Skinny Now



Sure feel the cold a whole lot more Since losing a bunch of pounds Never considered there'd be side effects And there's surely others I've found Actually need a whole new wardrobe Costly to lose so much weight One good thing I can fit my old clothes I wore on my very first date Another thing is I can ask for a booth At my favourite eatery again Instead of sitting conspicuously at a table Embarrassing me and my friends Even can be seen in my Speedo once more Showing off my skinny physique Haven't done that for a very long while It's been almost fifty-two weeks For those of you thinking of maybe a diet Be aware of the side effects But all in all you'll feel real fantastic And regain your self respect © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack, I think diets are more dramatic for men because many men are not constantly trying them as we women are. My husband lost a whopping 40 pounds since last year when he was diagnosed borderline diabetic. It's so much nicer that he is "skinny" now. And he nearly lost his double chin!

    I'm not sure self respect and speedo go together... Snicker... (Couldn't help myself). Dragon says he wants a speedo... RIGHT!... No dragon it's not a fast car... Silly Dragon!
