those are powerful words.............thanks for sharing............
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Having worked in a state psychiatric hospital I can most DEFINATELY vouch for the need for antipsychotic, anti-depressant and mood-stabilizing medications for those with serious mental illnesses.
However one has to wonder about the widespread, rampant use of some of these medications as a "cure" for life's trials and tribulations...!
Especially those of us who have been working on reclaiming and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle! It's wonderful that studies are actually coming out these days showing that physical activity beats anti-depressants for improving one's moods!
How many of us have proven THAT to be true...?! :-)
