As I type, my fingers are literally sweating (and shaking, along with the rest of my body). Someone with my massive weight does not need to try yoga. Holy cow. Bob keeps telling me to breathe, but how can I breathe properly if I'm shaking and have sweat dripping into my eyes?
The Bob I reference is Bob Harper from The Biggest Loser. I did The Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga today. The DVD contains a warmup and 3 levels of itnensity. You can program it to play whatever you want. Today I did the warmup and level 1. I think I'll be stuck on level 1 for a looooong time!
That being said, I really liked it. Good ‘ol Bernie was there doing the beginner moves with me. I couldn't do everything smoothly, but I tried my best and feel good that I took the leap. Here comes the old cliche: “If I can do it, you can do it.” Seriously. At this point, fat Emmie weighs more than I'm sure any reader out there (I'm not giving numbers right now, but if you want to start a dialogue with me I will share my personal story), and if I can do a modified plank without breaking something, anyone else can do it too. *Insert cheese factor here*
