Balancing Act

Look! I was "perfectly centered!" I only got this result once in over three months of taking the balance test on my Wii Fit Plus. I'm usually hanging back, slightly to the left.

There is no doubt in my mind that losing weight is a balancing act. Up/down, give/take, yin/yang, black/white, thin/fat, tall/short, rich/poor, high/low ... you know, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
I'm learning that I don't need to go to the extreme of being "ON" or "OFF" plan to lose weight. I just need to make sure my actions are the right ones to give me the reaction I want. Eating healthy and working out will result in weight loss if I'm consistent. If I eat right and work out five days a week and go hog wild on the weekend I'm just making things harder on myself.
I've got it pretty easy right now since I'm not spending over 8 hours a day at a desk job but I'm going to have to learn how to balance work and a healthy lifestyle (unless I hit the lottery before my unemployment benefits run out).
How do you find balance in your life?


  1. OMG congrats on the perfect balance. I freaked when that happened to me - I emailed the pic to all my friends lol *lame*

    You are totally right, it's all about being consistent. I honestly don't know how I do it - I just keep thinking about how far I've come, how far I need to go, and how damn bad I want to feel good about myself. Self-competition is my motivation.



  2. I have not found it yet. When I feel *most* balanced is when I'm doing the things I think I *should* be doing as opposed to the things I want to do.
    Bummer how that works.

  3. Great job on the Wii balance!
    I find that writing about my feelings is a great way to find balance. Keep it up.

  4. I do not have Wii yet :( but I know enough to know that balance is WOW! You have a good reason to be proud.

  5. Well done on the balance!

    I'm fortunate in that if I veer away from balance in my life, someone close to me will let me know about it, usually kindly. :)
