Great suggestions already. New supportive shoes are a MUST. Also, start getting some walking in now and it won't be such a shock once you're working. I find that standing in one place is harder than walking so ty to keep moving while working. Congratulations on your new job!

I think walking would be your best bet to build up endurance and strength. I also agree with the suggestion on getting a good pair of walking shoes.
Congrats on your new job and best of luck!

Blessings,

Get a good pair of supportive shoes. Your legs will thank you.

The best advice I can give is to walk and use the nutrition tracker. Those two things will help you lose the weight that is holding you back and strengthen your legs for the stress ahead. Good luck!

I may be starting a second job soon. I am a caregiver for my mom now and I'm lightly active but I'm able to sit down too. With the second job, i will have to be very active and on my feet for 11 hours a day. Being very obese, I know it will be challenging but I know it will help too.
My question is, what can I do for the next week to help get me ready for it?
Also, what foods would boost my energy for that whole time when I start the job?
Any advice or tips would help and are appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
