I tend to change clothes throughout the day (for the gym, at home, play clothes, work clothes, etc). Seems like every time I do, I get those lovely white marks on my shirt from my deodorant, especially on tighter fitting tanks and workout clothes. I have found that rubbing a slightly damp towel (maybe one from your recent shower) takes the marks right off and does not leave a wet spot on your clothes. Just rub and go.

An easy way that I have found to add a little more movement to my life is during recess. Two of us are on duty, so I join in on that game of 299 or 131 while my partner supervises the jungle gym. The kids LOVE it, are less likely to mess around, and I get a mini workout in. I have even started just going to recess to play a quick game when my head is all cloudy and I need to refocus for the afternoon.
Just make sure you have a good pair of tennis shoes on those days...and deodorant in your desk. 20
When you lose weight, especially if you lose weight quickly, you risk getting saggy skin (just watch a finale of the Biggest Loser.. sad but true).
Instead of risking never being able to wear a sleeveless top (let alone a bikini) because of the excess skin, treat your skin right as you lose. Apply a good lotion (cocoa butter or shea butter is best) at least once a day (twice is better).
While you can't change nature (skin will obviously sag as you age), moisturized skin is pliable skin!
This works the same way that pregnant women apply cocoa butter to prevent stretch marks...
