Murdo Girl…Unintended consequences

I woke up early Friday morning knowing what I had to do. 

I was released from isolation. I could go where I wanted to.

While I planned the day ahead, there is something I’ll confess.

I was free to go somewhere and it caused me some distress.

Maybe I should go shopping and buy myself some bigger clothes.

I haven’t felt hungry in weeks. I ate before hunger arose.

It was my intent to drop a few, but it was to no avail.

I tried so hard, I really thought that somehow I could never fail. People Who Love To Eat Are Always The Best People ...

I tried eating cabbage soup…(for me cabbage has no appeal.)

It wasn’t bad with ham and cornbread. A little honey sealed the deal. 

I found a promising thirty day diet. I finished all the meals in ten.

I didn’t know what to do next, so I ate them twice again.

Then I tried drinking SlimFast. I had a can four times a day.

I drank it with my cabbage soup. I really couldn’t wait to weigh. 

This morning I stepped on the scales. It has never told me lies.


Now I’m back in isolation. Still craving a good burger and fries.

    That’s what my dad did when we all went on the Metrecal diet. He just drank it along with his regular meals! And therefore consumed twice the calories. He thought he’d lose just by drinking it.
