In my time practicing yoga, I often find myself frustrated with my body and myself because regardless of how flexible I may be, my fat simply gets in the way of some of my favorite poses. And while searching for yoga videos on youtube, I became frustrated by watching these thin, svelte ladies do these same poses that I struggle with, but with little to no difficulty! Does that mean they’re “better” than I am at yoga? No, my body is just bigger and has different capabilities. So, I did some more digging around and was able to find a few good sources for people with bodies like mine (fat people) do comfortably practice yoga!
I hope this helps if there are any other fat girls or guys out there having the same issues I was having.

YOU CAN NOT TARGET FAT BECAUSE YOU CAN NOT SPOT REDUCE FAT FROM A CERTAIN AREA ON YOUR BODY. CARDIO AND EATING HEALTHY LOWERS YOUR OVERALL BODY FAT.
Repeat after me
YOU CAN NOT SPOT REDUCE
This week, I’ve been focusing less on calories and more on eating healthy. I’ve stopped drinking sodas and I’ve been making my own fresh fruit and vegetable juice.
And I’ve lost a pound and a half! I’m back down to my lowest weight since I’ve started my weight loss journey, and I feel really great. I don’t feel hungry or deprived, I feel healthy and strong. Really excited about my progress.
