Default Wishing days away

So I find myself doing something I abhor - wishing days away. I only have a small amount of time with my children who will be leaving home too soon. I just started my new dream job yesterday, and it only lasts one year. I have every reason to savor each day. But I find myself wishing days away because weight loss takes time. Do other people have this tendency? And any thoughts on avoiding it?

i recently read "the years are short, but the days are long".

savour each day- rejoice when you're happy, and do things to make yourself happy on harder days. the weight fill figure itself out!

Oh yeah I feel like this all the time. It's probably pretty normal to feel that way with weight loss. It's probably just like wishing a trip you have planned months away will get here today.

I do feel guilty somewhat sometimes feeling like that as I have a son too and think I should enjoy the time I have with him.

I feel like this too, I think it's only natural when you are looking forward to getting to goal. And quite rightly so, it's an exciting prospect!

I have definitely felt this way. I want to get to my goal weight so badly that I can't wait for weeks and months to be over. Which is silly because then I will be older!

I am not a patient person, I guess.
