Daily Prompts- Hunger game

With my belly totally empty

Combating hunger, being pious

Laying off the good stuff

Filling myself up with liquids

Day after day of dieting turns

Even the best of us into a devil

An obnoxious prickly pear

Bristling at the slightest provocation

Is all this pain and torture worth it

Just to hear people say,” you’re looking awesome!”

In response to the following prompts;




Belly, Liquid, Hunger





Word of the day challenge;

  1. “Dieting” never really works anyway. I love how you used the prompts.
    I’m all for losing or gaining weight for health or mobility reasons. But to fit some “image of beauty”… forget it! You nailed that!

    Sensible eating and exercise are the way to do it.

  2. I hate how people are made to feel “less than” due to weight or a too long nose, or whatever. I do not believe in dieting. Never have. Never will. But this is an excellent response to the prompt. And in answer to your question, NO, it’s not worth it. Being happy within your self, no matter what, is a better goal.
