Default Must be an Alternachick.....

Having read the Bios of some of you, I felt the sisterly vibes best on this board. OK if I join? Too tired tonight to come up with a good bio (forgot who I am), but sometime in the future.....

You all sound like great-thinking women and I have lurked a couple of times and decided I liked it here.

I need to lose about 60#. I am walking one to one-and-a-half hours a day and practicing yoga about 1 hr/day.

At 49, these are, for me, the 'acceptable' ways for me to exercise, hyaving tried all else.

Welcome Chervata

Sounds like you are off to a good start. I walk about 50 minutes per day and I have started doing yoga too

Talking Hey, Chervata!

Your avatar reminds me of that one pose (besides the bloody Downward Dog) that I HATE.

Wait, I can't even DO that pose, so how do I know if I hate it? Grrrrr.

Welcome, Chervata! We're glad to have you here!
My gosh... I'm so glad you reminded me about yoga. I'm starting classes again tomorrow night with my DD. Can't wait!
That pose... I CAN'T do that!! I hate it!! I can only grab one foot at a time. Very embarrassing. I'm so surprised at things like that... I keep forgetting that I'm no longer 18 and fit.

Thanks, everybody! Yes, I put that pose on there (called Bow pose) specifically because I can't do it, and I USED to be able to....before all this weight came on (again). It was a very heart-opening, back stretching pose and I loved it. I am the only one in yoga class who can't get into it.....and I am the youngest person in that class-- ---sigh. But, one day!!! So, the fat guy in the bow pose stays in front of my face till I can do it again! I say this in a very self-loving way...

Thanks again for the hearty welcome!

Would you believe I can do that pose? Yes, really! I think it's because I have a long body and short legs.
Welcome, Chervata, and just ignore me! Most people do.

Ruth---that's great! I could at one time, and then didn't do it for awhile, then there was just too much fat in the way. I am short and have short legs. Someday.......
