There comes a time in some of our lives
due to the things we ate,
our expanded girth tells us that now is the time
to lay aside some weight.
I’ll be cutting back on food drastically
at the crack of dawn tomorrow.
I’d sure appreciate your prayers
in this, my time of sorrow.
It’s grapefruit and toast for breakfast;
and tuna and toast at noon,
if I stick to my guns and this diet
you’ll be seeing less of me soon.
With varied fruits and vegetables
and 3 ounces of meat at dinner,
and 64 ounces of water a day
how could I not get thinner?
So, I’m laying aside all my junk food.
Yes, I will be an absolute saint.
But please, could you send up some prayer for me?
I’m beginning to feel quite faint!
This is for real. Monday is the big day. My husband and I are going on a diet! Aren’t you just excited for us? Thursday night after Bible study, some friends of ours shared with us a diet that they have been trying that a friend of theirs got from her doctor. You do the diet for 3 days a week and eat normally for the other 4 days. This is what we get to eat the first day.
Breakfast – 1/2 grapefruit, 1 slice toast, 2 tbsp. peanut butter
Lunch – 1/2 can tuna, l slice toast
Dinner – 3 oz. any meat (we’re going to have steak, seasoned with salt and pepper only), 1 cup steamed string beans, 1 cup beets, 1 small apple, 1 cup vanilla icecream. (the reward for eating beets)
Of course, you’re supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day too. Diet sodas are not allowed and you can only drink decaffienated coffee with sugar substitute while on the diet. Diets aren’t really something incredibly enjoyable, but I really want to try and make this fun. Thus, the silly poem and this post. (and hopefully I’ll feel more accountable now that I’ve announced it to the blogging world)
You all pray our strength in the Lord. 🙂
