No carbs, no fats
No juice with that
No  chips, no dips
No creams or snacks.

What’s all this?
No fun for me
No cakes, no pie
No sweet candy?

Tired of waiting
So few results
Been at this now
For months and months.

Five pounds up
Five pounds down
Enough to cause
A full breakdown.

What to do?
What to say?
The weight I carry
Won’t fade away.

It’s stuck on me
Like glue, like paste
What’s left to do
What will it take?

Guess …. I’ll keep trying
That’s what I’ll do.
