Yoga

Friday, July 08, 2016

so....another humbling moment...
I work in a café, that has different kinds of functions all the time, and one of them is a yoga class. I happened to be working when it was happening, and nobody was coming in, so I decided I would join the class. I used to take yoga quite a bit. At the time, I didn't consider it much of a workout.
60 pounds later....(and don't think it doesn't break my heart to say that)...
I can hardly bend over and still breathe. My stomach is so big I can't do a lot of things I did before with absolutely no problem. The only thing bigger than my stomach is my chest, and if I don't pass out by bending over I am suffocated by my chest.
So yes, this is the reality right now. I don't feel shame. Which is good. But I do feel like what is it going to take?....You know? I am so confounded and eternally dogged by this thing. It's going to take some kind of change, focus, reconfiguration. I do not want to be this fat. What's it gonna take?!!!!

    I know exactly how you felt when you wrote this blog. I think weight loss has more to do with our mindset than anything and it sounds to me like you're ready. I recently joined the intuitive eating group and found your blog through there. Are you still trying to eat intuitively? The group seems to be non-active right now. I was just wondering how you're working on your weight loss right now? If you are still doing IE, maybe we can help each other out. Thanks!

    That's great that you jumped into the class. Yoga is so beneficial for stress, balance and posture. I don't do every pose perfect and I modify what I can't do... when my chest and stomach meet and cut off my breathing emoticon

    I used to ask myself 'what's it gonna take' to stop yo-yoing, stop needed to start over AGAIN. It will come to you, the day you decide I'm starting right now and I'll keep at it tomorrow and the next day.

    I haven't been to my yoga class in while. Yesterday I pulled up Yoga With Adriene 30-day camp videos on youtube. Day one's mantra was "accept". Accept where I am today.

    Accept where you are at and keep the vision of where you can be with healthy baby steps each day.

    Don't give up on yourself.
