No one ever hated themselves skinny. Love and appreciate the body you have, dimples and rolls and cellulite and jiggle and all. You have a good body. It is worthwhile. Own your space. Love it before you get healthy. Love it while you're getting healthy. And accept it in all stages. Everything else gets so much easier if you can.

I am fortunate to have a large kitchen space with no island. However,I am on my feet ALOT between putting all the dishes away, making dinner, cleaning up the counter space & table and taking out food from the fridge & later putting it back after a meal! My legs can become so HEAVY from standing & moving so much.My solution: a chair that can be easily moved[with wheels or lightweight but sturdy] that I can SIT IN when I am peeling the potatoes over the counter or putting the silverware away ...
from the dishwasher. Just SITTING for EVEN A SMALL AMT. OF TIME REDUCES STRESS on my legs and weary body. Now I just have to keep my preschooler from climbing all over it!
Parking spaces that are close to the building are the most convenient, but they are not the best spaces. The best parking spaces are those that are located furthest away from the entrance to the building. 3 things make them best: (1) they promote better health as they increase our mobility, (2) you seldom have to worry about stray carts or other damaging agents to your vehicle, and (3) you almost never have to go searching for an empty space as they are reserved for people like us.
