“Sit not morose on account of the turns of time; for patience, although bitter, nevertheless possesses a sweet fruit.” The Gulistan of Sa’di : Story 16
It’s hard being patient. I know its a virtue but I’m eager to shed this weight and I don’t want it to take any longer than it must.
However, conventional wisdom says that a good, safe, practical rate of weight-loss should be about 0.5 – 1kg per week. That’s only 0.1 per day on average.
But it seems so, so frustratingly slow. And it’s never a steady 0.1 per day anyway.
Some weeks the net result is nothing or even up. Other weeks it’s more than the requisite 1kg down.
Heck. Even donating plasma every 2 weeks has a temporary yet significant impact.
I guess I just need to remember that most of the changes I’ve made are permanent and stop thinking of it as only 100 days.
So, I would like the LORD to grant me patience – now!
