"These are the times that try men's souls," were the words spoken by Thomas Paine rousing exhausted troops to continue fighting in 1776, and for whatever reason - it worked. Now I know that my dealing with a bit of extra weight is not in the same category at all, but the words somehow are exactly what I wish to express.-)
Somebody (who will not be named) is busy complaining today.
The new scale (damned be its truth telling ways!) informed me this morning that I had GAINED .6 pounds! Oh sure, I've been through this before, but it's still hard to take, ya know? That I have come to a plateau after being sooooo diligent is the thing that grates on my nerves. Yes it's true I am a child of the age of speed-in-all-things. I want what I want, and I want it yesterday!
The question now: is what I learned this morning, a time that literally tries my manly soul? Well, I guess not, but let's just say that these are the times that try my astoundingly stellar patience. And, there's that word again.-p
