keep those cards and letters coming

Saturday, June 30th 2007

i just want to thank everyone for reading and enjoying my blog. it is just so satisfying to me. This weight loss journey is so important to me. i believe that keeping and sharing this blog is making all the difference to my success and just may be the missing link i never had on previous attempts to shed these pounds.

i have always expressed myself best by writing my feelings into a poem or an essay. When I was younger and upset with someone i would often write a letter and never se...

it never gets old

Friday, June 29th 2007

every voice
needs to be heard
every piece of advice
needs to be shared
because this journey
comes in all shapes
and sizes
and is different
for each and every one of us

my advice
may not mean much
to most people
but there is someone
out there
who may try a little harder
because of something
i say today
and that’s all I need
to make it worthwhile

my suggestions
may fall on deaf ears
most of the time
but that one time,
that one time
when some...

today I am presenting my modest attempt at a haiku. a haiku is a form of japanese poetry with 17 syllables in three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. traditionally a haiku is used to describe nature or a point in time. it is also often used to describe a season. so i tried to use it to describe what i call my season of change. the result is a series of haikus that describe my weight loss journey, i think. i have never been one to follow rules, so this was difficult for me....

today's inspiration came from a huge thunderstorm that passed through westchester county, new york late this afternoon. it was a violent storm with hail and incredible lightning. it should have cooled the air, but it really didn't. but it did make me think about my life and all the storms i have weathered especially when it comes to my weight. i had so many opportunities to fix myself through the years, but i never did.

falling down

Tuesday, June 26th 2007

when I was small
and skinned a knee
my hero would come
and rescue me

she’d hug me
and hold me
and dry all my tears
she’d feed me
and bathe me
and calm all my fears

she made me feel
like the queen of france
she listen to my music
and at night,
we would dance

she was there
to pick me up
whenever I’d fall
she loved her kids
nothing else mattered
at all

delusions of a childhood
a picture that i paint
my mom wasn’t an angel
