Shift work plays havoc on your weight, those who easily gain weight can really put it on and those who lose weight with stress and rotating shift can almost fade to nothing. Obviously, I was one of the ones who gained. I dispatched to over 23 years in Idaho, we had a combined dispatch meaning we dispatched city police, county sheriff, fire department and ambulance for our county and parts of two other counties. I have been retired for 9 years now and still have weight problems.

My name is Kate. I'm a police/fire dispatcher at a municipal department on the SC coast. Fortunately I don't have the stress of the 911 operators, but I do double duty as a corrections officer in our jail which comes with it's own stress. Since starting my job almost 6 years ago I've gained 40lbs. Switching from night shift to day shift, not getting 8 hours of sleep and late night ice cream runs have all helped with the weight gain. I've been going strong on my diet for 2 1/2 months now and have already made it half way to my goal!
