    'Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house
    Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
    The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
    At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

    When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
    When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
    I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
    The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
    The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
    And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

    As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
    And prepared once again to do battle with dirt
    I said to myself, as I only can
    "You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"

    So away with the last of the sour cream dip,
    Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
    Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
    "Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

    I won't have a cookie - not even a lick.
    I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
    I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
    I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
    I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore
    But isn't that what January is for?

    Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
    Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
