I went to my first yoga class last night, and it was good!  My worst fears were not realized.  I was not the only overweight woman there.  I wasn't even the biggest woman there.  I never felt judged or pitied.  Nobody looked at me like they were thinking, "You can't do yoga.  What are you doing here?"  It seems silly, in retrospect, that I entertained any of those "what if," thoughts and fears because my experience was so far from being like my fears and very much what I had hoped it would be.

I'm also eating a different way, trying a new plan, but I don't want to say too much about it until I find out if it's going to be sustainable as a lifestyle or if it's just another wild hair that isn't going to last and will leave me feeling like a failure.  So far, it has promise.

That's all.


  1. Super yay! I am so glad. I hope it continues to be a positive experience for you. :)

  2. Lovely to hear you found a nice yoga class. To be honest, I've been to some classes (normally in big cities and posh studios), where there were a lot of pretty young things looking smug. For the rest, though, yoga really does reach all kinds of people :)
