Hi All: I just joined this team. I'm a 911 calltaker/dispatcher/radio operator for the Pinellas County Public Safety PSAP in Florida. I've been here for just under 10 years and gained at least 30 lbs during that time. Since June 16, I've been sticking to my Sparkpeople program of logging in my meals and exercise daily and trying to stay at about 1200 calories per day. I'm down about 30 lbs with my motivation being my daughter's wedding in three weeks. I hope to continue on this program after the wedding with the hope of dropping at least another 30 lbs. As we all know, this particular job is not conducive to losing weight. I've been sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair and standing/moving around/stretching as much as I can during my shift. I figure any amount of calories I burning doing this will help. I also try to hit the gym (or treadmill at home) at least 4 days per week, but it's not something I enjoy doing so just about any excuse can be turned into justification for not working out. We work 8 and 12 hour shifts with 30 minutes off for lunch. We're fortunate to have a fitness center on site at work - with really old equipment, but at least we have it available to us. I'll stop babbling now, but look forward to reaching my goals with you. :-)
