You start position is fine - what you need to do is move everything back, not just the bar, as you separate it from the floor - bar, knees, hips and shoulders. Think of sitting back slightly as you stand. This will move the bar and your weight back over your heels and not affect your posture. You really don't need much - an inch or two.
