Elsie: The Amazing Grazing Machine

"Moo"

yes, that's right, I said..."Moo"
Grazing will do that to a gal...


Grazing will make you eat things that you normally wouldn't...
or couldn't, or shouldn't...

After spending the day eating only when I was hungry,
and then only eating within my points (Weight Watchers),
we came home from church, and the grazing started...
is that a tail back there? mooooo

everyone else went to bed,
there was nothing on television,
(except some bizarre show about toddler beauty queens,
did anyone else see that?)
I couldn't concentrate on a book,
and I "thought" I was hungry...
where did these horns come from? mooooo

but instead of reaching for my WW ice cream sandwich,
only 2 points, I started out in the pantry...
hey...how'd this big brown bell get tied around my neck? mooooo

after eating a cup of cinnamon raisin granola (its healthy, right?)
with fat free milk (well, uh, that makes it alright, right?)
I then moved to the refrigerator...
oh baby, a vast field in which to graze...
okay...when did I get a cud? mooooo

is that crab meat? okay so its the fake stuff,
but wouldn't that be yummy... maybe with some cocktail sauce...
yeah, that didn't taste so good together,
you'd think it would, crab being seafood and all,
but no, not a good combination...
what's with this brown and white coat? mooooo

now I need something a little salty...
how about a bowl of those purple hulls from lunch
(all those folks not from the South, those are peas),
I'll just pop them in the microwave...
when did these the hay bales get here? mooooo

Yeah, grazing will make you eat things that you usually wouldn't,
couldn't and really shouldn't...
but thankfully I can start again tomorrow morning...

are those hoofs? moooo

Deb....call me when the grazing urge begins and we'll laugh together instead! Or we can share WW ice cream over the phone together while singing stupid disco songs!!! Hang in there sister...each day is a new oportunity to prove to yourself that you can whip the urges to graze.
I love you dearly!
