It's the Most Fattening Time of the Year

I found this today while skimming the WW message boards and thought it would make you guys chuckle:

"It's the most fattening time of the year
With that pumpkin pie filling
and everyone swilling down eggnog and beer
It's the most fattening time of the year

It's the lip smackingest season of all
while your shopping you're cheating
impulsively eating that junk at the mall

It's the heav-heaviest season of all

There'll be turkeys for basting
and stuffing for tasting
and giblets and gravy will flow
there'll be cookies that mom baked
and leftover fruit cake from a christmas a long time ago

it's the scale flattening time of the year
while your diet you're blowing
there's calories going straight down to your rear
it's the scale flattening time of the year

There'll be after meal dosing
and arteries closing
cholesterol levels will grow
it's too cold to go jogging
too brisk for tobogganing
so pass me a hot buttered roll

It's the most fattening time of the year

All those gingerbread shingles and
chocolate Chris Kringle's will tremble in fear

It's the most fattening time,
it's the belt loosening time,
it's the most fattening time of the year"

I'm actually not overly worried this year about all the sweets...which is funny considering how fun (and delicious!) baking is. I know what treats to enjoy and which ones to pass on. I usually find with baking that as long as there's a place it can go away to (the office), I won't be driven to stuff as much of it into me as I can. I'll have my taste to make sure they're suitable for others to eat and move on. The only way to get over the sugar craze is to become a pastry snob, selecting only the best.

So no more store-bought baked goods! Unless...they're from Pistacia Vera where I have a Groupon. Handcrafted and home baked goodies only! And even then, I'll have to choose what's really necessary to enjoy.

Yes, necessary. LOL. Because sometimes it just is.

  1. Funny Yule poem! Thanks for sharing. Good strategy to pass the unworthy carbs on to the office staff. They tend to eat anything! ;)

    Hope you have a lovely holiday and New Year.
