Why ‘Maintaining the Balance’?

First of all, I think balance is an important part of any healthy lifestyle. It can also be something tricky to figure out. How do you stick to healthy eating habits when you’ve got a mad sweet tooth (hello, chocolate)? How do you balance academics and part-time work with the desire to be active every day?

These are questions I’ve struggled with, though I’ve finally managed to keep some semblance of balance in my life, hence ‘maintaining’.

Maintaining also references my weight loss of 40 pounds since June 2008! I reached my goal weight in May 2009 and have been maintaining the loss ever since. I think balance plays a crucial role in both weight loss and maintenance, which is why I hope to continue Maintaining the Balance.
