    Bad Posture

    I have bad posture...I can sit the wrong way, pick up bags the wrong way, etc ... I'm trying getting a better posture and then I go back to the old routine until I notice and do it right again.  I guess it takes a few times before we get it right.  ;)

    Terrible.

    I have shocking posture. I don't know where it came from, I just started hunching somewhere along the way and it's kinda stuck with me. My dad gets on my case about it. Sometime he'll walk past and actually pull my shoulders back - I HATE it when he does that. I know I...

    Erg

    I have awful, awful posture.  I sometimes catch myself and try to sit up, but it hurts.  I carry around DDD breasts, so I hold alot of weight.  I have a small frame, so to carry that weight can be quite painful. I swear, I'll be a hunchback if I'm not careful...

    I Dont Think That Slouching Is Bad. I Slouch All The Time And My Back Doesnt Hurt.

    I slouch because it is more comfortable than sitting up straight. Here is a picture of me slouching. https://twitter.com/paultheuglydog/status/357950056239865856/photo/1 Does slouching make me look ugly?

    Asymmetric Man

    My gait’s long one, I’m a crooked man salved with voltarol.  My pelvis is deader than elvis (but oddly, not as dead as elvis’s pelvis), my shoulders hold boulders; I’m a lock-kneed monster with a centre of gravity just off kilter. My physical priorities are all wrong and...

    Slouching Constantly

    My posture is horrible as well, mainly because as a child I got into the strange habit of sitting too close to the TV screen and occasionally sleeping sitting up as a toddler. :( As a result, I often hunch over things and feel like I need to be closer to things like screens...

    Bad Posture?

    Maybe it is. For me it is comfort. I am a laid back kind-a guy, Good ol country boy. I don't care to sit up straight and proper because that isn't me. I'm the guy slouched back on the couch or in a chair. I may slide back in a booth at a resturant and cross my feet on my seat...
