I’m trying to get fit, healthy, and trim,
But I’m the victim of a gargantuan appetite.
It makes me seem to want to eat all day,
And won’t leave me alone through the night.
When I’m on the brink of reaching success,
I feel my cravings taking full control.
I find myself overeating again,
And on weigh-in day, I miss the goal.
I would impugn the belief that willpower
Is lacking for those who fail miserably.
But, the truth of my failure to shed these pounds
Is that my worst enemy turns out to be me.

Too often the case. Same with me. I can do it for some time but not all the time.
