to 12, and I don't mean noon,
My body looked like a hot air balloon.
How did it happen, I really don't know
But when I needed clothes, to the plus section I'd go.
wore stretch jeans, till the stretch was all gone,
I'd look in the mirror and feel sad and alone.
When the pity party ended, reality came to light
I knew I was in for long struggle and fight.
battle of the bulge, I'd fight and I'd win.
I'd buy a size 12, and I'd fit right in.
The day finally came, I went to the store
I didn't even know my size any more.
12 was my goal and I could just see
Me, the same size that I used to be.
My heart started pounding as I tried on those jeans
They slid right up, over a body fit and lean!
From 20 to 12, It feels really great
It took a
long time but was well worth the wait.
I knew I could do it, I fought hard to win.
God in your mercy, help me to NEVER gain weight again!
