Try telling that to my thighs.
At 51, I was trim and lean.
At 52, a lettuce snack
Will add 5 pounds to my view ‘round back.
The biggest ‘gift’ mid-life doth bring
Are calories that seem to cling
To waist and tummy and hips and chin.
You will not win.
My new regimen has now kicked off.
I’m 52, but I’m not soft!
A two mile walk will start my day.
And, sugar’s out.. but veggies stay.
