Mimi,
This is a great area for reflection. I have thought of these things often. In fact, quite some time ago a found myself glued to an article on this very topic.
There is a fine line between obsessive and healthy exercising. Sometimes, it is a mindset, but when it becomes action it is a time to really look at our behaviors.
In my case, I will admit to coming extremely close to crossing that line. In fact, I had others mention the possibility. I use activity for so many things such as ridding myself of frustration, and dealing with life's curve balls. Even those times I felt I wasn't eating properly. If I am not careful I still do. It is an addiction of sorts now, and I must learn other options and back away.
Sometimes I even go through withdrawals. Having worked with addicts you would think I would see it coming. emoticon
Even too much of a positive thing is not healthy.

Teresa

1. Are You Obsessed with Exercise?

2. Do you exercise more than what is recommended?

3. Do you do it because you like to exercise so much or because you like to eat much more than your plan let you...smile...

4. How much time do you exercise per day/weekly?

5. Do you think that your exercise help you to lose weight faster, or that it is just good for your health?
