The pain in my heart
I thought I was dead
before long I’m all wired up
all for a plate full of bread
you gotta lose weight
the consultant looked down and said.

The yoyo-ing started
making me spin
ten years of losing
but just couldn’t win
I’m doomed to fail
before I begin.

The plans were all fake
my mind told me lies
said I could go back
to eating pudding and pies
Then I joined Slimming World
Louise opened my eyes.

The sign said, SW this way
so I walked through the door
life was about to change
a world not seen before
I’m in a secure place
where pounds roll off on the floor.

A consultant as wise as an owl
SW was my new club
and to top it all
it’s inside a pub
the bar may be closed
but the menu has succulent grub.

I was finally home
the pounds started to shed
understanding and knowledge
now secure in my head
good friends giving support
Wonderful folk it must be said.
