a *weight-loss* loser's christmas

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the kitchen,
The Losers were hung up -
Complaining and bitchin'

The pictures were placed 
On the ice-box with care,
In hopes for some memory
Or Challenge to share!

The Losers were "finished,"
They had hit a "stall,"
And visions of Sugar Bums
Beguiled them all.

When what, to their hungry eyes should appear
But an oversized pizza and cold, frosty beer!

"We know that we shouldn't
We know that we can't
Try eating 'just one treat'....
We'll end up in a rant!

From the back of the shelf
To the top of the scale,
"I just bought this junk food,
Cuz it was ON SALE!"

"Out Cookies! Out Chocolate!
Out Cupcakes and Candy!
Out Munchies, McDonald's
And Sugar, and Brandy!"

So they threw them all out,
And with new-found persistance,
They pondered such theories
As Insulin Resistance...

But I heard them exclaim
As they took out the trash
Happy Holidays to all
And to all a good weigh-in!


Hope your day is Merry and Bright!

With many thinks to the ever kind Loretta
for letting me play along on Toon Tuesday!
