I finally got around to trying sun salutations today. I just found a quick little video on Youtube and gave it a go. I felt a bit like a beached whale trying to move from pose to pose, but it is my goal to memorize and practice these few poses each morning until I master them.
Also, I had a moment of bravery today and hopped on the scale. Ack! I weigh 5 pounds more than my all time high, but it's 5 or 10 pounds less than I had feared, so overall it's good news for me today. I'm glad I finally faced that monster (the number on the scale) that has been lurking and keeping me scared.
I'm trying really hard not to hate myself for gaining back all of the weight, plus 5 pounds more, that I had previously lost. Water under the bridge, right? No use crying over spilled milk, and all that rot, yeah? Yeah! Okay, 30 second pity party over.
In honor of my new goal and having a number to measure my progress I'm posting a new "before" picture:
