In the ongoing tale of my waistline, I have dropped another inch, bringing me down to 36 inches. I’ve had to go out and buy three new belts because the old ones looked awful with the extra holes punched in. I started tracking my waist measurement in December when I went down to 38 inches. I know at the start of 2006, I was closer to 40 inches. I hate to think of what I was before I began to practice yoga seriously. I still have a long way to go before my core strength is sufficient to sustain my practice.
However, I am still pegged at 193-195 pounds as my fighting weight. I still find it hard to cut out the sweets in my diet, ice cream and chocolate, especially, and too many snacks before bedtime. That’s a formula for continued weight problems.
