New Yoga Pose -- LOL

If you are familiar with yoga, no doubt you have heard of the pose called "downward-facing dog," which is pictured at the left.
Well, I have been doing simple stretches for 6 weeks so thought I'd try some actual poses today. Note to self --- when you still weigh about 300-plus or minus, do not allow your mind to write checks that your body cannot cash --- lest you catapult yourself across the living room, landing on your glass coffee table-- which miraculously doesn't break, but your back nearly does.
So, I invented a new yoga pose today called "downward-facing whale." I don't suggest you try it unless, A) you are at goal weight and B) your parents were circus performers and you are accustomed to being launched about the room.
Oh well, I am still on track with the food and exercise, although I won't be trying any other new things in the near future.


  1. I just about fell off my chair reading that post...that was unbelievable!

    I know I have told you this before, but I am VERY VERY proud of you and very happy about all of this. I LOVE you so much, and when I see your dedication and determination in this new you it reminds me how blessed I am to have you in my life...

    YOU GO GIRL!Your Bear is in your corner...and we WILL walk up Bear Butte!!!

  2. When I read "downward-facing whale," I pissed myself.
