Finally, the Photos..

Having promised photos of the improved me for the last three months, we finally had a breakthrough today..

a. We just came back from class at 10
b. It was hot outside and we were still flexible after the class
c. MIL decided to help me with the photographing considering San has been against this post and idea from the get go..

Again, you have to realize that there are two ordinary people in the photos, but we looked a lot worse before starting yoga! MIL has lost 30+ lbs, I have lost 15 lbs in the last 100 days. We have both reduced a lot of weight in the tummy, thigh area and our shoulders, arms and calves have become a lot stronger!










There was a big big tummy that spread out like North America on the world map.. it has now gone. There is now a dimple(?!) in its place on either side of the stomach... Just wish it would stay here and not expand again..










This is why it was so difficult to get the pictures with a self timer. . you want good focus, with a zoom lens and sometimes.. you just miss your suject and get a nice picture of the fence!

But you get the idea!




It was not a good idea to put the mat on the grass and take pictures because we were not on firm ground, but there had to be come optimization between posing and good photos..




If my waistline improves any further or my muscle tone gets better over time, will post photos in another three months..

The real achiever here is the MIL. She has been tenacious and in her third week she still could not sit down with her knees bent and her butt on the floor between her knees... Now she just eases into it!

I remember the ballroom dancing pic. You look amazing. I have seen MIL's photo too and she has reduced quite a lot and looks so much in shape. Kudos to both of you.

Kavi, Sriram, thank you.

Sudhar, romba pugazhadeenga Sir. If you see some of the other folks in my class you will go speechless. Women who have had triplets, 70+ year old men, cancer survivors, people with plates in screws in multiple parts in their body, etc. etc. all giving it their very best and showing a lot more improvement in the last 100 days that we have.. you should watch that .. truly inspiring.. almost every alternate person there has a story to tell

uncle we are a bunch of youngsters in Mylapore (from P.S Senior area) who are interested in Bikram Yoga. there are no classes nearby. but few of us already have yoga training at a local yoga center. can we do the postures given the 26 posture cycle withought the heat..? i mean chennai heat and humidity should do in some way..?
