The Choice Is Mine

This is a poem I wrote several years ago when I was a member of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly).

Do not wait until tomorrow
When today could be your start;
If your desire is to be lighter
You must take your plan to heart.

When you get up in the morning,
Carefully consider your day.
You know you must get moving
Or the pounds are here to stay.

To become lighter is my goal.
Eating wisely helps get me there.
Planning, choosing, and recording -
But first I must get out of my chair.

Now is the time and today is the day.
My desire to reach goal is here to stay.
Facing the scale will not cause dismay
Cause I'm doing what I must to make headway.

- Judy Allen, December 2009
