Exactly!!! That's my problem. It seems I try to use my back hand to keep balance. Now I know it's inefficient for turning and looks awful. Thanks so much!

Keep your core strong!! Make sure your back hand is behind your bum, not reaching out infront of your body.

This image will help you see the difference:
