Oh, I’m sick of this dieting
In my quest to be all lithe and slim
Some food is so difficult to give up on
And, I am not really keen on the gym!
This spare tyre that I carry round my middle
Spills over the top of my jeans
I need to ditch the roasts and the curries
And eat more salads and greens!
I’m fed up with looking so chunky
And hate to see myself in the nude
I really must get some willpower
And take control of my food!
I know my lifestyle is unhealthy
That’s why I have diabetes type 2
I have given up smoking and drinking
And there is just this one thing to do
I have to become more assertive
If I am going to succeed
And stick to what’s healthy and nutritious
Instead of giving in to my greed!
