Everybody needs a little patience…

and everybody needs a little gratuitous Guns N’ F’n Roses, I says :D

But I’m realizing that I have none.

Not G N’ R, but patience.

Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Niente. Rien.

You get the picture.

But this comes into play in just about every facet of my life, from eating to dating to work to family to weight loss.

You see, I spent most of the week with Tara, who was in town getting geekified, and we hung out, got our grub on, went in search of delicious cheeses and caused some trouble at the AGO.

I noticed one night while we were out eating that I had definitely ordered more than I needed. It was one of those eyes bigger than your stomach moments. But I think, in times like those, it’s more like a eat it while you can because you’re never going to see it again type deal. Why is it that I can’t accept that that these things will be around forever and I can come back again in a week, a month, a year and enjoy them again? Why do I think I have to have an extra side right then and there in order to feel satisfied? Why isn’t patience available on the menu or $2.95 instead of more chap chae?

But thankfully I haven’t been completely out of control. POINTS have been tracked. Everything tallies up. Everything still looks positive and the digital devil isn’t being a complete douchebag. Yet.

But this is where the patience thing comes back into play.

I want it all. NOW.

But do I even have a right to jump on it every day and expect to see a lower number? Hells no. Considering my activity has been limited to walking to and from work and ducking AGO security, I don’t deserve any pats on the pack nor should I be doing any happy dances next to the scale every morning.

Good things come to those who wait.

So I’ll just have to wait.

Or maybe find a time machine or something.

Craigslist might have one, right?

I feel your pain. I can remember when I first started running and it started to feel really good, I'd come home from a run feeling like a million bucks and look in the mirror and expect to see Cindy Crawford. And there I was. Just me. Still fat. Sometimes I think should look thinner simply because I have DECIDED to lose weight. Silliness. Must stop the silliness.

Even if you have no patience I still gave you a Beautiful Blogger award.

Love that song! But yes, when it comes to weight loss especially, patience is hard.

You've done this before though, so you know if you work at it, it will come.
