Does this kind of job keep you fit? I've noticed I'm getting pretty weak lately. Yesterday I tried doing some pushups and did like 15 before it burned too much and I had to stop. I had no idea I was that bad. I used to be able to do 50 without a problem.

Nope it just wears out your feet. Someone who stands all day (cashier, retail sales, etc) would still need to exercise after work.

You would sure burn more calories than sitting all day. If you can eat clean while on your feet all day and the job actually requires you to move, you should be able to get in better shape. Download an app to track your steps. As soon as I took a deskjob, I gained alot of weight...granted I did go to a higher paying job..if ai could have the best of both worlds I would!

I am 350 lbs and am on my feet all day at work as a nurse (12 hour shifts).
So while I do burn a lot of calories at work, I am in no way in any shape except round.

I need to get some actual cardio in, as well as some conditioning.
When I do that I loose weight.

in short...no...
I've been working in just such a job for the last 20 years. on my feet 8hrs a day, running a cash register.
in said time, I've gone from about 200lbs, to about 350lbs.

that being said, most people don't believe that I weigh as much as I do... there's No Hiding that I'm Over Weight, but...I apparently don't Look 350...

A personal trainer I knew said it took the most strength to push yourself away from the table.

Some people are able to keep skinny better than others...

I'm on my feet 9 hours a day 5 days a week at the shop. Very little cardio but a decent amount of muscle work and steady movement. 5'10 160 lbs give or take a full belly. I've been the same size since high school.

That being said, I'm not in particularly "good" health. My cholesterol is a bit high, as is my BP. I'm 29 years old. Smoking, drinking, and a generally [censored] poor diet do wonders. My saving grace is that I don't have a huge appetite and can be comfortable on one meal a day, plus a light snack in the evening. Portion control is as much a factor as what's in those portions.

My father: he's been a radio talent for 35 years. Talk about a desk job. Entertaining yes, active no. However, he plays intramural soccer twice a week and does cardio when he can. Eats well, doesn't smoke rarely drinks more than a glass of wine. 65 going on 30.

Getting fit and losing weight are two different things. Both take discipline and work.

The key to being on your feet is having good/quality work shoes. If your feet hurt -- your whole body hurts. Exercise as we get older is crucial. Accepting that were not as strong as we used to be is just being honest. Lifter lighter weights, do less pushups, etc... Just make sure your staying active is important. Mentally not just physically you have to want it.

^^^this^^^

As someone who has recently dropped more weight than an average adult weighs in total, I can unequivocally say that you cannot and will not out exercise what you eat. I typically do 10km per day (usually more) and while it helps me maintain my weight, it was not what caused me to lose the weight and yes, you can lose the weight--NEVER think that you cannot.
