Fail to Resolve

I want to lose weight
same resolution as last year
and the year before
why can’t I think of an original idea
or follow through on my promise to myself
friends I know can do it
my sister can do it
I fail every time 
I think my resolution should probably be
to make a new resolution

    GREAT ending on this one. THat is what made the poem!! Yeah, I know the feeling and people always told me that if you did not focus on weight loss it could happen more naturally, that is a laugh!!! But I think if you try not to focus on it, and just eat normally, at least you won't gain more. Sure wish I knew the secret to the weight loss part though. I know what it is (GO BACK in time and DON"T be over 50 any more!!)
