Ready for the gym!
A little nervous and
self conscious of my new
challenge and goal,
but determined to see it through.
The choices I have made are bad for my health.
I see it everyday on my waist, my chin, my feet
My pots and pans are arranged just so,
granite counters, black fancy appliances
and gorgeous they are.
They are not my friends
because I have misused their trust--
as doctors plainly report.
I need to loose weight,
I need to loose weight
is what they all say.
I hear them loud and clear
thru their stethoscopes and
I need to make better choices
Choose greener greens,
more fruity fruit.
Stay away from those sweeties
on my shiny granite counters
that has put on all this extra weight.
I don’t know how I’m not ashamed to say.
But learn I will.
To sauté and use only a pinch of this.
To blend and add a dash of that.
And, use portions and be conscious of them!
Oh, yes I will if I want to get rid of this
on my hips.
Despite it all, I know Jesus loves me
What matters is inside and
not what size blouse I use.
But I need this body to carry out His
work, so better choices I need
My cherry wood cabinet, rounded corners
And ceramic tile floor
will become my friend and
not my enemy,
and my Lord as always,
because better choices
I will make.
