Constanza

Casting My Weight Away

Once me I was so filled with greed
I’d eat, and eat and never stop
 I'd sit and eat a giant crop

Even when I did have no need
I’d chomp away at everything
Eat everything my mum would bring

I was a pig I was indeed
Got so fat I could hardy move
My mouth was always in the groove

Five times a day I’d have a feed
And bloat myself I really did
My fat belly could not be hid

And then one day I took some heed
I pushed aside all of my meat
I changed it all the food I’d eat

I’d only feed on bread, and seed
Egg’s, and vege’s, and heathy stuff                      
These things would, fill me just enough

I now I look like another breed
The fat is gone and I confess
This food has freed me from my mess

I’m healthy looking like some steed
I Feel so proud I really do
I’m feeling like a man brand new

Once me I was so filled with greed
Even when I did have no need
I was a pig, I was indeed
 Five times a day I’d have a feed
And then one day I took some heed
I’d only feed on bread with seed
I look like I’m another breed
I’m looking healthy like some steed

I think this deserves a gold medal, so I am giving you an honorary gold medal. I want to do this too, and so I shall. It is just a matter of doing it. I have done it before and I think this poem is the push I needed. Trading in my oinks for brays!

Hi Caren 2 years ago I was 40 pound over what I am now, after all those years of being fat it was great. I hope you succeed, my friend. Keep smiling, my friend...Peter

HOw and what one eats truly makes such a difference. I am astounded that doctors in the states seem to understand nothing about this very important element of our lives. We are what we eat!! I was a real piglet in my day, Peter. Maybe I could have eaten YOU under the table. I lost 40 pounds these past 4 years, and the last two years not even trying. I just consume more veggies than ever before!! sure enjoyed this.

Then I changed my diet completely and I m now The meat went flying away, and my illness is completely Gone. along with the booze and the Cannabis. Life is so great now. I hope you are having a great weekend, my friend.....peter
