Mirror, Mirror


My Mom sent me this and I thought it was cute!

It also inspired me to write one of my own!!!

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Do you have to tell it all?
Where do you get the glaring right
To make my clothes all look too tight?
I think I'm fine but I can see
You won't cooperate with me;
The way you let the shadows play
You'd think my hair was getting gray.
What's that, you say? A double chin?
No, that's the way the light comes in.
If you persist in peering so
You'll confiscate my facial glow,
And then if you're not hanging straight
You'll tell me next I'm gaining weight!
I'm really quite upset with you
For giving this distorted view;
I hate you being smug and wise -
O, look what's happened to my thighs!
I warn you now, O mirrored wall,
Since we're not on speaking terms at all,
If I look like this in my new jeans
You'll find yourself in smithereens!!!

Ode to my Scale

Oh Scale as you sit upon my floor

And taunt me from my bathroom door

You make me nervous just sitting there

As I try to stay blissfully unaware

Of the pounds I really weigh

and not the ones my license say

I know that I can’t ignore you long

To do so would just be wrong

Because I know that you never lie

Even though I have made you try

By shifting and moving you around

The perfect place has never been found

So please my scale give me some good news

As I have been good and exercised too

It is time to see that needle go down

And maybe just maybe I’ll keep you around!


I seriously can’t believe I sacrificed sleep for this….

Have a great Day!

Never say Never


If there is one piece of advice I can ever give it is these three little words!

The next piece of advice might be never give advice :)

They can both come back to haunt you!

In my younger days I learned to never say never…

My child will never do that….

I would never wear that….

I will never own one of those…

You get the point right?

After numerous times of me doing something I would never do I learned ( most of the time ) to keep my mouth shut.

After I lost all my weight I have never said that I won’t gain any back.

I kind have thought that would guarantee that I would…especially with my track record of foot in the mouth syndrome.

So even though I don’t have to admit I was wrong  about never saying I will never gain any weight back…

I still have to admit that I have put back on a little weight. Which in weight loss world appears to be the circle of life.

Now I have 20 lbs to get off.

It doesn’t want to leave.

I must be a great host.

So  I stepped on my scale yesterday after not weighing for 2 weeks to only find out that the 5 lbs I had dropped just a few weeks ago had moved back in.

What to do?
Back to square one…

One day at a time…

Never give up!

Exercise!! Eat smart and Kick those pounds right off!

They ain’t welcome here anymore! ( I know not proper English, I am trying to sound tough!!!)

So who is with me??

Warm weather is just around the corner….

and you know what that means…

Goodbye baggy sweaters and sweatshirts…

Hello short sleeves and swimsuits!

Scary HUH?

Enough Said!

Just a short one!


I came across this verse lately….

If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.
2 Corinthians 11:30 (NIV)

So Here goes…ME Boasting….

I am a great eater!!

Have an awesome day!



PS ~About that last post, I did partly remember some of it. I say partly because it didn’t seem nearly as interesting what I am remembering so I figure I must not be remembering it all! :)
