Sugar-coated

A tug of the zipper,
stretch of the button.
My favorite pants,
apparently mauled
by the dryer.
Puzzled, I open the closet,
wipe away the dust,
and step on the scale.
There.
There it is;
proof.
The numbers do not lie.

A cookie here,
a pastry there,
many chocolates in between.
The baking craze long over,
my hips now hang
as wide as my shoulders,
begging my pants
for forgiveness.
It is a definite ‘no.’

Today
is a new day.
A new start.
Another beginning.
Retraining my palate and
resetting bad habits,
to reclaim
my wardrobe,
and eat
like a rabbit.

    1. 😁That last line is funny because 1) we have a house rabbit (her mate crossed the bunny bridge this past June) and 2) I was mostly a vegetarian for my entire adult life until about a year ago. Anyway, …enough with the sweets already!! Lol!
