The Retired Bloke

Time to Diet

So today the diet begins

Time to reduce the double chins

No more raiding the biscuit tin

Time to resort to getting thin

Cutting back on the boozy beer

Time for my pounds to disappear

Fish and chips they’ll be no more

Time to become a dieting bore

More intense running and training 

Time to obsess about weight gaining 

It wont be much fun to be around me

Watching me count every calorie.

    Good fun. I wish you every success with your weight loss/fighting the flab.
    I can strongly recommend a ketogenic diet (google it). You can stuff yourself with correct foods and so long as you dont eat any of the 'no-no's' you will not feel hungry at all..... i lost 7 stone.
