YOU GOT THIS


Watch the scale
Watch your weight
Get started now
It’s not too late.

Read the labels
Check the charts
Don’t give up
Before you start.

Counting grams
No sugar treats
Cutting back
On calories.

No rice or pasta
Potatoes or bread
No snacking at night
Before going to bed.

Drink lots of water
Avoid caffeine
Enjoy a salad
Eat lots of greens.

Consistency
Your best friend
Being skinny
The new trend.

Like the tortoise 
And the hare
At times the race
Does not seem fair.

Some can eat
Ice Cream and cake
They still lose weight
For heaven’s sake.

Looking atย 
A piece of fudge
Can guarantee
That scale wonโ€™t budge.

It takes time
To lose that weight
But, you’ll look better
Youโ€™ll feel great.

Stay away from
Pies and chips
You can do it
You got this.
