You should see me when I weigh in each week. I weigh early in the morning so I'll be at my lightest. I very gingerly step on my scale, spreading my toes yoga-style, holding my breath until I see the marker stop at 110, my goal weight. Then I breathe a sigh of relief and step off the scale, thanking Sparkpeople for another week of maintaining that delicate balance between calories in and calories out. I've developed many new habits that have kept me healthy, fit and happy for the last three and a half years. Among them are yoga each morning for 30 min., Jazzercise 3 times a week, an hour each time, a brisk 30 min. walk three times a week and
choosing wisely when grocery-shopping and also when eating out. I weigh and measure my portions when I prepare meals at home and ask for small portions at restaurants or often ask for a "carry-out container" and take half the entree home for another day. It's been fun finding ways to keep that delicate balance that keeps that number on the scale each week right where I want it. I think it has finally become a way of life for me and I love it.
