Unless ordered by a Dr. one should eat while eating sitting up straight. Our son-in-law has heart problems and over weight. He would eat while lying on his side on the couch. The Dr told him that is worst thing he could do. We are so proud of him and he has made headway on his issues.

Straight up military style calisthenics and drills will help you shed pounds and tone up without a gym or ANY equipment whatsoever aside from shoes. I'm talking Jumping Jacks, Sit-Ups, Push-Ups, High Knees, Mountain Climbers, Steam Engines, Up Downs, Military Press, Lunges and Squats. It's hard work but it pays off. Google search for military physical fitness requirements, and find your age group. It'll give you the standards and in turn something to shoot for.
Pick a date on a calendar a couple months into the future and have that be your "TEST" day -- see what level of fitness you're at and then work on getting your score higher a couple months later.
Each song is avg 4 minutes so for each song do 10 sit ups and after the 10 sit ups breathe until the song ends and do it again for 3 more songs :) in less than 20 minutes you will do 40 sit ups and have no breathing issues
