I subscribe to Harlan and Sara’s Build Your Yoga Business ezine. In a previous “zine”, a craiglist ad was provided to us for the subscribers to use, to help solict private yoga clients. My beef was, that I’m not swimsuit material, and that for those who want to have swimsuit bodies, and they look at me (I’m a size 14), that I’m not exactly what they want to become……
So I basically post that type of information on their forum at
The “Elephant in the room” title I took from the same titled modern dance piece from a professor from the University of Iowa. In that piece a couple becomes pregnant, but they are unwed, and so the pregnant lady becomes the “elephant in the room”. You see it but you don’t necessarily acknowledge it presence.
Yeah, I’m not swimsuit “ready”, but I’m happy where I’m at…..I could lose a couple of pounds, maybe get down to a size 12/10, but then I’d need to whip out my sewing machine and do a few alterations. I’ve allready had to safety pin several of my church skirts/pants since the birth of baby Grace (27 months)….so I am a work in progress.
Enjoy the forum, pipe in if you want.
