A life of Balance and Moderation.....

Balance and moderation are not synonymous but they are harmonious.

Balance is defined:
: the state of having your weight spread equally so that you do not fall

: the ability to move or to remain in a position without losing control or falling

: a state in which different things occur in equal or proper amounts or have an equal or proper amount of importance

Moderation is defined:
: average in size or amount : neither too much nor too little

: neither very good nor very bad

: not expensive : not too high in price
(Miriam Webster)

I see balance and moderation as going hand in hand. They compliment and complete each other. I truly see that balance is a constant changing force. It is perpetuated by external forces but to feel balanced I have to feel right inside. The Yin and Yang of life. Moderation is something that I have worked hard to be at peace with in my life. Coming from a background of fairly extreme restriction BOTH in calories AND in food types, moderation has been a continuing work in progress. I worked very hard to find peace with food and being able to eat ALL kinds of foods making the emotional connotation the same with all kids of foods. I can now eat a wide variety of foods and have zero guilt and zero remorse for anything that passes my lips.
