Battling the Night Shift Bulge

Postby Chaypeta » Tue Mar 04, 2008 9:42 am

Hi everyone,

I started working night shifts three years ago and although I really do like my job it hasn't been good for my waist line. After watching my tummy slowly expand and having to buy new uniforms in the next size up every twelve months I've decided it's time to get serious about getting it all under control.

Being over weight to the degree I am is a new experience for me. I've never been one to eat a lot (we almost never have deserts after meals and I don't tend to snack) and I've always been pretty active so my weight for most of my life has sat around the 56 kilo mark (I'm only 5"1 or 156 cm tall.) My first brush with being overweight came after my third child in my mid thirties which I ended up going to weight watchers and loosing about ten kilos without much trouble. I was just under 60 kilo's when I started working as an associate unit manager on night shifts and over the past three years I've stacked on an extra 17 kilos. This is easily the largest I have ever been and I hate it. Not for the looks, I think you can look beautiful at any size, but because of the way it FEELS! I hate hate hate the sensation of the rolls of tummy flab rubbing together and how tight my clothes are across my middle and around my upper arms. I feel uncomfortable lying down because of the extra padding that I have to 'rearrange' to get comfortable.

Enough is enough, it's time it went!

I'd be interested in hearing from everyone and look forward to being in a supportive, healthy weight loss community.



I'm especially interested in hearing from members who are night shift workers or have been a good weight most of their lives and have only recently become overweight.
