Diet Riot

You're not doing well, Ya gotta lose weight; Keep track of every particle Of food on your plate. Count calories obsessively, Go on diets galore; Don't even eat jello, 'Cuz "there's always room for more." Drink water constantly Eight bottles a day; That'll surely take Your appetite away. Yet at the end of the day, When all's said and done; You lost one whole ounce, Was that any fun?

Love this - I'm happier now than when I was a size 8 - but you read my narrative "Seven Years" so you know why - take care-

Funny poem. Ends on a high note with that last witty line.

Thanks!! Btw, it was written for that Doctor, James Clancy, whom I mentioned in my reply to you on "Have a Nice Day." He's really helped lose "hundreds of ounces" over the past 18 months. Best wishes, Gershon
