This transformation of mine starts now. Today. November 14,
2013. Okay, the truth be told - I have attempted to make myself over and have
achieved some great results in the past. (Patting myself on the back)
Back in my early twenties, I had gained weight due
to retinal detachment surgery on my right eye. (About 25 lbs) This dampened my
active lifestyle. Then I had an opportunity to travel to Japan and while there
I read a book called, Fit for Life. It was about proper food combining for
great digestion. I did this while incorporating an active lifestyle once again.
It worked. To complete the make over, I had my hair cut short and was able to
maintain this look and weight for over a year back in 1993 / 94.
Now I am going to do the proper food combining
once again and eliminate the wheat and dairy products. But most importantly I
am going to incorporate deep yogic breathing techniques into my life. The first
one I wish to start with is called Furnace. This is the breath that helped Alan Finger lose 100 lbs. You
can find his story written about in the book Breathing
Space: Twelve Lessons for the Modern Woman. ~ By Katrina Repka and Alan Finger. (See book links below)
I suppose in the coming days I ought to post a
picture of myself in the present time. 70 lbs overweight. ahhh.... Magical
breathing here I come!!!
Love the way this breath is discussed in the
book. Alan Finger says a furnace needs continual stoking so it can do its job
properly. With this breath, you are burning away all the old addictions.
"...the internal blaze should be maintained day and night until the job is
done." (pg. 187)
Okay so here I go. 27 deep breaths. I am to aim
for four rounds of this. In numerology, 27 equals 9. The number 9 in yogic
philosophy is about truth.
To learn more, get the book for the details. I
am not able to divulge this information here due to copyright laws. However, I
did manage to find a YouTube video with Katrina Repka talking about depression
and balancing the left and right side. To see this video & picture of me at my ideal weight, visit original blog
