Not bad for a fat girl

Daily Prompt: Imitation/Flattery (homage to Dr. Seuss)


cat-in-the-hatI love sweets and treats and sodas and pop

I eat them up and don’t want to stop

They bulge my belly and give my teeth soft spots

But they taste so good they are hard to top.

Red sweets are good,

full of their dye

cinnamon bears, twizzlers, hot tamales, cherry pie.

Chocolate is best

creamy and rich,

but if you get hives

try not to itch.

Candies and sweets

Pie, cake, and treats

all of them tasty

but too many make you pasty.

Try real food instead,

and get out of your bed.

Get off of the couch

and go work off that pouch.

Walk, ride, or run,

soon you’ll find that it’s fun

you’ll work up a sweat

and get healthier yet!

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.
