I can't 194

 Just because I 
Haven't
Doesn't mean I
Can't

Every morning for thousands of days 
I would start on my new diet
I'm just not going to eat so much today
And quite often it would work as planned
Until the out of control eating started 
Up and down up and down 
I probably lost 300 pounds of fat 
Over the years
And now at age 77
I have learned how to control it
Within 5 pounds of what I consider optimum
I threw away many perfectly good
Packs of cigarettes
Till that final one in 1987
It's only two late when you stop trying

 Just because I 
Haven't
Doesn't mean I
Can't
day 28,280
