It was the month after Christmas

It was the month after Christmas and all through the house
nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I’d nibbled, the eggnog I’d taste,
at the holiday parties had gone to my waist. 

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I’d remember the marvelous meals I’d prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
the wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
and the way I’d never said, “No Thank you, please.” 

As I dressed myself in my husband’s old shirt
and prepared once again to do battle with dirt.
I said to myself, as I only can
“you can’t spend a winter disguised as a man!” 

So—away with the last of the sour cream dip,
get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
every last bit of food that I like must be banished
till all the additional ounces have vanished. 

I won’t have a cookie—-not even a lick.
I’ll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won’t have hot biscuits, or corn bread or pie,
I’ll munch on a carrot and quietly cry. 

I’m hungry, I’m lonesome and life is a bore,
but isn’t that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A very clever and pointed truth to keep us moving forward. I don't know how I was able to avoid all the holiday treats but somehow I did it...and I don't mind saying it will be great to see all those temptations gone from view. (It was getting very hard to resist). Thanks for the clever poem.

Love that! Yep, back to normal life. (Well, I still have a week off - the joys of being a teacher!) I don't really consider the holidays over until I go back to work, so I'll be eating at maintenance.

This is great! Your story is an inspiration, thank you for sharing! Funny thing is this morning I wrote in my journal "You do not want to keep loosing and gaining the same weight every year... be careful over the holidays!" Now it might seem weird to write it now as the holidays are so far off but I then wrote it down in my Future Planning section of my journal so I can remember to write it down in October.
