Am I the only one appalled by how long it takes to get a sofa made? I know they are making it especially for me, but I still find it hard to believe it takes 3 months.
As with most things these days, we have abandoned all patience. We want everything now. And while, for most things we are able to indulge our speed complex, as we all know, getting things quickly is not always the best thing. A good example is food. A meal that is lovingly and patiently prepared is generally going to be better than something you heated up in a microwave.
But weight loss is another area where speed is a big problem. Most people want to lose weight quickly. Most weight loss programmes feel the need to offer a quick fix. But this need for speed comes at a cost:
1. You take drastic steps to get the results quickly.
2. You are impatient with natural plateaus in your weight loss and think there is something wrong with you or the weight loss programme.
3. You interpret days when you go off path as disasters and give up
The faster you want to lose weight, the harder it is to make sensible decisions about your programme.
