patience

“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 0.51kg 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.

I’m sure a lot of it has to do with water consumption & water retention combined with my level of exercise.

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!
