I am a compulsive eater.

A daily challenge, for a life repeater.

Constantly dieting, and trying things new.

Realizing the problem, must be conquered by you!

A constant battle to eat what is good.

While fighting the “battle of the bulge”, as we should.

Exercise, water, diary sheets.

The healthy way of life, we know we can beat.

Don’t worry about finishing the food on your plate.

The child inside, is full; appreciate!!

Tomorrow is better, a new dawn is here.

Let health be your reason, slim down and You’ll cheer!!!!!!!
