THE 2016 A TO Z CHALLENGE: O IS FOR.........

 WELCOME TO THE 15TH. LETTER
OF THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2016:
MY THEME IS HOW TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BODY
AND MIND:
 THE PAUL MCKENNA PHD. WAY

O IS FOR
When I got wed many moons ago,
Seven stone was my weight.
I know I looked skinny,
But I didn't know any difference I can state.

After I completed having my children,
The pounds gradually crept on.
I never saw seven stone again.
By middle age I felt and looked a ton.

Before I went to reside in Spain,
I bought Paul's book "I Can Make You Thin".
I took it with me to read in Spain,
And the results were astonishing.

On my return to the UK.
The pounds began to creep on again.
Perhaps the reason was,
I did more walking in Spain.

I reached an all time high three years ago.
No! I won't tell you the weight.
But I felt most uncomfortable.
This weight problem I really did hate.

When I had personal problems two years ago,
My weight  very graually did wane.
I re-read Paul's book.
Now I look almost human again.

I have lost weight in my arms and legs,
And walking don't make me tire.
But why Oh why is it so difficult.
To get rid of my tummy's spare tyre.?

  2. I always say, easier to keep it off than to get it off.

  3. Being overweight or plumb is quite ok as long as one is aware. A spot of walking is the most convenient. Walk without pain as was done in Spain! Rightly so Yvonne!

  4. I've been under weight since I turned twenty. I'm not sure why, but that's just the way I am. Guess I have to accept that.
