It dawned on me today that patience is all i need for me to succeed. no matter how much i know i can do this, how hard i work at the gym, how good i am with the diet, i NEED to be patient in order for me to see real results - not imagined ones. i always made that mistake of wanting to see results in a week or two and if i dont, i get so discouraged and slip. i knew all about it being a lifestyle not short term solution but i couldnt help but expect results fast. i read a lot of stories of people who successfully lost and maintained the loss and ALL of them took MONTHS before they saw real results.i would sit there and be like "what?!! a year?!, i think i can do it faster..."
yes i did lose weight before quickly but then, i was much younger, went to the gym twice a day and enjoyed it so much and the weight loss was a bonus!!! things are different now and my body has changed, my metabolism has slowed down. i accept that.
Now i need to focus on reminding myself everytime that i HAVE to be PATIENT with myself and it WILL pay off eventually in its own good time!!!
