What a cute peek at the Weight Watcher's diary, Jomo17! I've been there and done that, but maybe not with your sense of humor. This reads well and is very entertaining (and true.) Mary

Hi Jomo, sounds like a plan to me. I try to keep a veggie platter in my fridge, but don't always stick to it. I like to bake and if I bake, well, you know... Your poem is very well presented with an excellent rhyme scheme. This is a great entry for the contest.

My mother is a charter member of Weight Watchers. I understand the program is very successful for those who can count. I lose track after my third martini.

This is a very good entry for the contest. Good luck with your diet and the contest. Zee

I enjoyed this as I have been a member of weight watchers, and know how hard it is to have enough will power to stay on the diet. Especially in social situations... Good luck with the contest and with your diet too! Sarabran

I enjoyed your clever interpretation of the contest prompt and your use of the day by day format. Some of your laments were poignant and others quite funny. I especially admired your using strong rhymes throughout.

I like this very much - the ups and downs of weight watchers. Does it really work? I like how you have incorporated the whole week. Good luck in the contest and keep it up with the weight watchers!!! luv Jenny x

Fun and true... counting points will make your mirror your friend.
I love the light, fanciful feeling to this poem about the way we look at food and how we have to do many things to overcome this love.
Well done.

Jomo17:

I'm on Weight Watchers program too. Started a few months ago and find it pretty easy to stay on it. I don't look at it as that four letter word (D-I-E-T) anymore but as making smart choices for the rest of my life.
I find it especially funny when you write "Barbeque has met its match...Munched on crispy veggie sticks and didn't even frown"....That is a laugh; I do hate giving up bbq sauce.
But I won't miss the pounds.
Well done !

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review my poem, and for your encouraging words. I love the WW program. It really works for me. You are right, it isn't really a diet, but rather a way of life. I am glad the poem made you laugh. Thanks again, Lisa

Know several "Weight Watchers", and your poem captures the see-saw nature of their dieting experience. Well-written, liked the daily journal format and happy ending. Good luck in the contest!
