    Is there anyone else who cannot push one?
    It's an impossible task for me, so my hubby does all the shopping. If I even attempt to push one I end up weak, with terrible burning chest pain & trouble breathing. Sometimes I feel close to passing out.
    My chest muscles end up hurting so much that it sometimes takes me days to recover, & I end up utterly physically exhausted.
    I am 26, & normal build, so it's not to do with my physique *sigh*
    Same for pushing the pram, our pram for our last child barely got any use because I just can't physically push them.

    I use it primarily for balance. And I only put a few things in it. Like you I can't push it if it's full. Boy I get some weird looks at the checkout when I roll up with a big cart with one item in it!
