How to lose weight without dieting!

by Val Reynolds

Dieting has never been our strong point and we were so touched by this rhyme sent in by a reader that we immediately sent her a copy of the new book Colour me slimmer that we find so inspiring.

I made this rhyme up in a fit of alcoholically fuelled despair walking behind two girls with lovely figures.  It tells you as much about myself as I want you to know and more about how my mother dealt with my deep despair. Lucy Reckett

Fatty watty watty
That’s what they say
Fatty watty watty
It really makes my day

Fatty watty fatty
That’s what they say
Not matter what the day
I’m fatty watty watty

So I’m so fat
That is that
No matter what I say
It only means I weigh
More than you
More than you
Oh it’s true
I’m fatter than you

Fatty watty watty
What do I care
There, there, there,
My mum says fatty watty watty doesn’t
matty matty moo!
