The Lyrics

A lament for all women (and probably even a lot of men these days) who haven't quite achieved that Hollywood movie star body just yet(!)

And here's a link to the guilty pleasure that is the original song.
My fat photo’s stuck on our refrigerator door
So I won’t slip up but it’s not working anymore
Jenny Craig love, has it ever crossed your mind
Your weight-loss plan is quite unkind?

It’s Day Seven of my diet, whole house is quiet and I need food now
I should say no thanks or I’ll burst out’ my Spanx* but I need some chow
I’m not used to trying to do without… I just need food now!

So now I’m on the Atkins, sounded like a dieter’s dream
But it’s not so easy pigging out on meat and cream
All that protein’s really put me in a bind
My movements are a bit behind…

And it seems like all I pass is a lot of gas when I eat food now
Have to ease the pain chucking out more methane than a dairy cow
And that’s something that I could do without… friends won’t visit now!

Oh no…

Screw diet shakes, I’d rather eat nothing at all…

Well the F-Plan can f-off, I’ve had enough I need junk food now!
And size zero I believe I simply can’t achieve, I’m a plump hausfrau
And I don’t see why I should do without… I need sweet food now!
Stuff my ‘Get Slim’ vow…
Guess I’m just a greedy cow..!

* - special, fat-squishing pants - a celeb wardrobe essential, apparently...

Wendy - Well said! I don't use any food programs, but as my hair is starting to turn gray I have my own special "dye-it". ;D

It's the second coming of SlimFast® Shady! Tasty lyrics, Wendy; I'll put it on my playlist along with Weird Al's 'Grapefruit Diet'!

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone - much appreciated. I have since baked a ton of cakes at the request of my six-year-old, so this parody is now mocking me as I watch them cooling on their racks... I might go and lick some pages from my recipe book..!
