Slow Dance - The Key to Eating Less

The following is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. She wants to see how many people will get her poem.

"Slow Dance"

Have you ever watched kids on a merry go-round,

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight,

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

Do you run through each day on the fly,

When you ask how are you, do you hear the reply?

When the day is done do you lie in your bed,

With the next hundred chores running through your head?

You better slow down, don't dance so fast.

Time is short, the music won't last.

Ever told your child, we'll do it tomorrow,

And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die,

Cause you never had time to call and say, "Hi"?

You better slow down, don't dance so fast.

Time is short, the music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere,

you miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

it's like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life is not a race, do take it slower,

hear the music, before the song is over.


I decided to do a little research after this poem was forwarded to me for the 237th time and find out who this teenager with cancer actually is. It turns out this poem wasn't written by a teenager with cancer!

However, I still like it.

It reminds me to slow down. And that's the name of the game with eating. So think about slowing down today and this weekend!

You better slow down; don't eat so fast,

amazing how your food will last!

And if you do, you'll eat much less,

your MBT will be impressed!

So please slow down; be in pursuit,

of wearing that hot bathing suit!
