Reversing It

I will always be fat
And I refuse to believe that
I can lose this weight
I do
I realize that isn’t the way most people think but
“Eating to live instead of living to eat”
That’s just not working out, and I truly believe
Eating what I want will make me happier in the end
It’s just a big fat lie, thinking
Being fit is the most important thing in my life
Now I understand that
Making myself happy with food
Is more important than
Making myself healthy with food
And this much is true:
People are succeeding at losing weight every day
But I know in my heart this will not be the case for me
This could wind up killing me
Doctors tell me
I will shorten my life and steal time away from my family
Right now it doesn’t seem possible that
I can change my ways and be fit for the rest of my life
This is what I believe:
This journey is just too tough for me
I don’t want to even consider the fact that
I can control the causes of my shortcomings and my failings
It’s just a fact of life that
People like me are weak-willed and lazy
And it’s ridiculous to believe that
I will lose weight and be healthy

That’s how I used to think; then I chose to reverse it (read from the bottom up).

  23. At first, I thought this was another Beatle's parody and I was racking my brain trying to think of what song it was supposed to be.

    Then I read it backwards and realized Paul is dead.

  31. Beautiful post. :o)

    I stumbled across your blog a few days ago via a link-skip-and-a-jump, that days entry made me laugh out loud and so I hit 'older posts', and now I've just finished reading through your archive. *laughs*

    I've read a f*ck of a lot of weight loss & health blogs in the last year and yours is one of the best I've seen; clever writing, emotional honesty, and humour. Most awesome. Thank you for sharing your sh*t jack.

    Since 01 June 08 I've lost 51 kilos, I'm 6 kilos off goal now and it's still hard, but it's easier than it was. I wanted to let you know that, because I can tell that you, like me, are soooo going to make it.

    *anonymous hugs*
