Regarding Slimming – wordle 136



Regarding slimming

You have a choice:
undoing your belt
or suffering its stricture.
you could change
your habits,
lessen your consumption
of chocolate,
fill the gap with fruit.
Gather sweet things
to jettison in virtue.
Cycle to work,
create a new you,
sleek and healthy.

  1. Love this, Viv. I also went back to butter several years ago.

    “Could” is the key word in this one; nice poem…


  3. Veronica Roth says:

    Ack! How to do it and keep the chocolate though! Nicely done Viv. 🙂

    Nicely penned Viv…I realize it’s not chiselled in stone, nor should it be. I have a theory that doing all these “correct” or “healthy” things doesn’t necessarily help you live longer, it’s just so miserable, it feels longer…

    Somehow you should choose one day of the week that is gluttony day but keep a strict diet for the rest of the week. Let me know how you get on then perhaps I will try it!


  6. Eat all these BUT exercise! And exercise!

  9. perfectly timed for the Thanksgiving holiday


  10. Or, maybe just stop wearing a belt? I”ll try to remember this tonight when looking through the kitchen for dessert!

    I have a friend who struggles with her weight. She could change her habits, as you suggest, but after years of watching her struggle, it’s apparent that she probably won’t.

    Gosh, I forgot that this poem was based on a wordle! Well done, Viv.

    LOL. Succinctly put!

    My belt needs undoing but chocolate, cake and biscuits are my vices. I need more of your will power. I have given up butter but then my sandwiches fall apart on their journey to work. Sally
