I know what you mean, Dee. Her website is awesome. Nia Shanks is pretty awesome herself, though. She writes a lot of great things!

I think this article makes a lot of great points and is especially useful for those of us who are or have been prone to overdoing it. I've seen, even among the most seemingly successful maintainers, people literally become unhinged chasing a continually lower number on the scale, faster running times or many other "better" stats--the scale isn't the only place where people can sometimes become obsessed with chasing a perpetually moving carrot.

I don't think seeking general balance and moderation means we can't challenge ourselves or push a little harder from time to time, but I do think we have to be careful about always feeling like we need to do more, be better, smaller or more muscular. At a certain point, we are enough and working towards these goals should be something that's part of our lives, not something that totally eclipses every other part of it.

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since. Had a baby at the end of April 2016 and am working to get back to my pre baby form, or at least as close to it as I realistically can!
