What is it about society
That we feel the need to be
Instantly gratified in all we do
The diet that says lose 30 in 30
The language course that says learn a
Language in 90 days,
The house that gets totally renovated
in a weekend.
We live in a super fast world.
My journey will take months,
And months of conscious choice
To rewire my brain and
Slenderize my waist,
To strengthen my legs and
Eradicate my bat wings.
What shape would I be in
If I didn’t participate in weight loss now?
Sometimes, it’s the journey that is most
Exciting, not the destination.
This time, I vow to drop the weight and flab
Slowly, very slowly, simply, healthily, stealily,
And entirely free from pressure.
This time, I will do it for me.
I consider it a gift to myself
To lose the weight I hate.
