a couple of possible problems. when you swing around to form teh D loop keep teh rod canted at an angle - if it is almost vertical at teh end of teh D loop formation, you will pull the line in close to your body.
If you are trunking - pushing out the bottom hand too much and maybe breaking the upper hand wrist you may be swinging the tip around behind you (a lot of folks can do the same thing with a single handed rod back cast by rotating the hand so the rod tip rotates so it is positioned behind your head - this will bring the forward cast right over your head. Concentrate on keeping the rod path flat and straight back and out a bit to the side - if you break your wrist to rod tip will rotatebehind you.
