Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,
You’re not hungry, you’re just bored
Fasted for 16 hours (a new personal record!)
Cut out carbs and don’t touch fats
or even glance at fizzy drinks
or else see the life you worked for wash down the sink.
Because iced water on an empty stomach
and the fifth chewing gum of the day
will inch you ever closer to being happy with what you weigh.
Never bothered by your weight before?
Come see what all this fuss is about
You’ll soon join us. We’re sure.
