There once was a girl named Michelle,
A fascinating young mademoiselle.
She did an “Exposed,”
Without many clothes,
And bid body image issues farewell.
Then it dawned on me: have I really gone a year-and-a-half in this space and not force-fed you some ridiculous limericks?
That all changes today. I enjoy making stuff rhyme and I like promoting other people's fantastic blogs, so every so often I plan on providing more "Linkmericks".
Meet Live Smile Run’s beauty, Syl.
If you need someone to inspire, she will.
Decked out all in pink,
We’ve watched this chick shrink.
Her story’s anything but run-of-the-mill.
There once was a lady called Bitch Cakes,
Who was all retro dresses and kitsch takes.
Now she’s less “broad” of a broad.
Check her out, you’ll be awed,
Cuz few make a better blog than this bitch makes.
Who doesn’t love Healthy Loser Gal?
She helps us all maintain good morale.
When motivation’s required,
You’ll find yourself inspired.
She’s our healthy, weight-losing pal.
There was an Anonymous Fat Girl named Bobbie,
Who was trying to live life less blobby.
Now she’s exercising,
And her blog’s energizing,
And now fitness is more than a hobby.
There’s TJ from TJ’s Test Kitchen.
Whose food shots are often bewitchin’.
She’s the queen of the pool,
Our weight-losin’ jewel
(but Pisa says “Don’t eat so much chicken!”).
Then there’s Escape from Obesity’s Lyn,
Who has found the strong person within.
She may not show her face,
But she shows grit and grace.
That’s why I return again and again.
How about Truth2BeingFit’s Jody?
She’s anything but an old fogey.
By controlling actions and hunger,
She looks fifteen years younger.
Be like her and live life more boldly.
And then there’s Carb Tripper’s Anne,
Who has reworked her grand master plan.
Bad habits have been dumped,
And now this lady’s jumped
From the fire and the frying pan.
There was a lass named Gen who got banded.
Due to the fact that her waistline expanded.
But she had too much to drink,
Got her feet out of sync,
Now she’s typing her blog out one-handed.
Have you met Tony, the ol’ Anti-Jared?
A blogging and working out zealot.
He’s got plenty to say,
He’s lost more than you weigh.
Favorite vegetable... broccoli or carrot?
