The pounds just seem to pile
When you don't careful, be.
You look into the mirror
And fat is all you see.
Then one day you get so mad,
You decide that you'll fight back.
And win the battle of the bulge,
Get yourself back on track.
You work out hard at aerobics,
A glider you start using,
You lift those weights until,
Your aching body say "Stop Abusing"!
The pay comes, when one glad
You've misplaced those panty hose, size Q
Desperation makes you try the B
That for so long hasn't fit you.
Low and behold, they slide
Don't even break a sweat!
You know you're on your way again,
To energy and good health yet, You bet!
