Back To The Old Me

 Back in the day I had a bangin' body
Couldn't tell me nothing, I was hot toddy
Breasts sitting pretty, booty on swole
Sad thing is I was only 11 years old

 Daddy hated how I looked, so he made plan
Cooking fattening food in his favorite pan
Of course I eat it all, out of respect
But now I sit here with deep regret
 I gained more and more weight, and it didn't look good
No longer do I turn the heads of the boys in the hood
I used to be able to dance for hours without taking a break
Now it's hard just to make my hips shake
 I've got to make a change before it's too late
It's not just for vanity, my health is at stake
I run a huge risk continuing on this track
I could lose my daily functions, or never even get my life back
I am ending this cycle, it's starting now
I have the tools and of course the know-how
I can't take this anymore, I need to be free
I am finally ready to get back to the old me

Back To The Old Me by Sarah Jane R. Copyright 2011

Wearing a Rainbow dark denim vest, Old Navy black and white striped tank, Max Rave fuchsia skinny jeans, GoJane black platform strappy sandals, Alloy leopard print tote, vintage brown sunglasses, thrifted gold clip on shell earrings, and Ebay gold watch.

This poem is inspired by my new blog, Back To The Old Me. I don't want to give too much away, but basically, it is my new blog to showcase my weight loss journey. I am currently 215lbs and I am not feeling healthy anymore.

Thanks so much for the comments on my last post, as well as a shout out to the new followers. I am not asking for a bunch of followers on my new blog. I am doing it for me mainly, just like this blog. I am really insecure about my weight and it's time for me to get healthy and feel better about myself. If you want to come along for the ride, feel free to do so.

I hope you all have an amazing Sunday!

Peace, Love, and Happiness!
