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. Even too much of a positive thing is not healthy.
