Patience send your sister!

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I know why the sage said “Patience is a virtue”: it’s because so little of it exists today. In our society, in business and in my head, it’s rare and beautiful and I’d like more please.
In my mind, this especially applies to weight loss. Historically, fat just jumped on me as soon as I turned my back on any of the hundreds of diet and “plans” I attempted to follow. Now, for the first time in my life, I have moved the dial down and it consistently moves in that direction, but lordy, it seems slow. When I break it down its 16 weeks today, and I’ve lost 60 pounds. I’m halfway to the goal. That’s a frigging miracle. But its 3.75 pounds a week and things are slower than in the beginning. I’m praying for fortitude (patience’s younger and spryer sister) to come and live with me for the second half if this mountain climb.

    Oh I understand, and remember!!! It took me exactly 1 year to lose 137 lbs, then later dropped another 15! At first, it dropped so fast, then there were weeks just 1 pound,, but thank goodness, it all came off,,, never to be found again : )! Have a wonderful week!!
