Sounded Good At The Time

In the New Year I resolved to lose weight 
I thought I'd start by using a small plate
But with a big sigh
I piled it up high
Dang, once more the idea not so great...

For the New Years Resolution contest.

    Hmm most of us would relate well to this..ha!I went to the clothing shop and tried on a new pair of jeans, the size I thought they should be and got them stuck around my ankles. What does one do in this situation... call for help? Keep up the good work.GB
