Death of a Diet

I faced the truth a year ago:
  my gut was supersize.
I vowed to cut my calories.
  Events proved otherwise.
You see, a perk of office work
  is daily celebrations
Requiring cookies, chips with dips,
  and similar temptations.
There’s homemade cake and store-bought too
  in every leading brand.
There’s someone hawking chocolate bars
  to help the high school band.
There’s pizza, popcorn, party mix,
  a tray of fancy cheeses.
What happened to my firm resolve?
  It went to live with Jesus!
