Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. It really is nice to know there's a place where people realy do understand. I have non-dispatcher friends who think they understand - but there's no way they could. They don't know what it's like to be on the other end of a phone line while a child is whispering from a closet, or when you can hear the caller getting beaten, or any of the millions of other scenarios that go on in our work day.

I think I need that vacation! I'm taking vacation this coming Saturday through the following Sunday.

Glad to have you. Your weight loss so far has been great. This site will keep you motivated. There are so many people here to encourage and help. I have been here for 5 weeks and I can't see me going back to my "old" ways. I am enjoying myself so much. Good luck. Just holler if ya need anything.

I'm new here, have been reading some of your posts and you seem to be a friendly bunch. I'm glad to find others in a similar high stress and low activity environment and who understand what we do. I've been dispatching for right at a year. I work for Fillmore County, Nebraska. It's a smallish county, so I work as jailer, sheriff dispatch, two village marshal's dispatch, and of course e911. I did get "dispatcher spread" the first few months I was here, but have been fighting it off, as well as the weight I came to this career with since February. I started out at 272 lbs, am now 233. I have had to re-motivate myself. For so long I was focused on the goal, "getting in shape and losing enough weight to survive jailer school". I didn't think further ahead, so once that goal was past, I started floundering around. Now, thanks to the SparkPeople web site, I'm focusing on new goals.
