Exercise Become Me

I once knew a poet named Cecile
Call her skinny and hear her spiel
   I'm petite with small bones
  I have fat and rolls she groans
If I called you names how'd you feel   

So she decided things had to change
 Lifting weights at first felt strange
      Her trainer pushed gently
         Encouraged intently
  Her life she happily rearranged

Now building bone density and power
 Her muscles sprouting like a flower
        Strength is now her friend
      Workouts are now her trend
  It takes discipline and willpower

No longer thin rather lean and fit
Liking the changes she does admit
         Active body and mind
        Healthy diet combined
   This lifestyle she'll never quit

    Good for you Cecilia - you are an inspiration - I've been quite slack for too long - need to get back in shape. A well written limerick. T.J

    Hey good for you. I've been fairly active all my life, though not a zealot. Eat right, move the body, get enough sleep. Simple yet effective

    Hi Cecilia, exercise and meditation have always been part of my life, And now at seventy four I feel so good within, so I believe that you are doing the right thing, my friend. 'Good on ya' for your new outlook on life, and for your poem....peter

    Hi Cecilia! A new lifestyle is usually brought about by a fresh outlook on life. Surmounting problems and hard times could be one of the main positive factors. Enjoyed this set of lovely limericks. Pleased to see you posting again. Regards // paul

    I love weight lifting. Sadly, for me it puts ON weight, which I do not need but at least I am more fit and the weight is from muscle not fat. Congrats to you for taking up this GREAT way to increase your health.
