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*

  32. Just goes to show, it's all in how you see it. I linked to it on my blog:

  33. I'm speechless. If that doesn't get you your own television show, I don't know what will.

    Get the hell off my TV, Dr. Phil. I want some Jack Sh*t!!

  34. How do you do it?? You must be the blogging God predicted by ancient prophets. I bow to you!

    This post rocked!

  35. I've been saying GENIUS for a while...

    new heights though, seriously... *claps*

  36. Yeah, I don't understand why I keep getting awards. People must not have anything better to do because my blog is nothing special. But please, take the ones you want!

  37. This is absolutely increditble. It really made my day. It's one of the best entries I've read in years!

  38. You're just the teensiest bit brilliant.
