911CHICKSTL ~ So happy to find a 9-1-1 dispatcher on sparkpeople to have as a possible friend. I am in the same boat as you, we work 12 hour shifts and do a lot of sitting. I have been a dispatcher for 7 years and have gained some weight with all this sitting. Hopefully we can help each other out and share dispatch stories!!!
My dispatch room is like 20x20, so I try and walk laps with weights around the computer stations. The Medics walk by and are amused by my antics, my partner is always playing on a yoga ball. I do what I can.
