Life is busy with work as a 911 dispatcher and mom to a 16 yr old daughter. I just saw my doctor and he told me to try and lose the 10 pounds I've put back on this past year. I'm sure he will tell my husband the same thing about his 40 pounds when he gets a check up next week. Tracking what I eat and when I am active helped in the past so I'm back to do that with Sparkpeople.

Hello! I am a 911 dispatcher. I dispatch for 6 towns, all police, fire, and medicals...66 agencies in all. I love my job, but have put on quite a bit of weight in the last 10 years of dispatching. Currently I am following the Ideal protein plan, and have lost 23.4 pounds and 21 inches in 7 weeks. I am very happy with this program.

Hello! I'm a police dispatcher in SLC, Utah. I started at the SL County Sheriff's dispatch, but now I'm working for the transit authority. It's pretty awesome, much smaller department.....though we are growing right now, just hired 15 new officers!

Hey y'all!
I'm a police dispatcher in Tennessee and anticipate graduating this December with dual B.S. degrees in Criminal Justice and Political Science. I've managed to quit smoking and stay away from it for just over two months now, so on to Phase 2 I go! Time to get my weight to a more acceptable level.

Welcome! I have been caught up in a pity party of my own lately, thus I haven't been sparking much. It shows, too. I have gained 15 pounds since June 15th. It's time for me to pull my head out of my bum and get back on track!

Hey everyone!! I just started on this website today...most of my weight loss and fitness has been written down in a little day planner for the past year or so, but I decided being with a group would motivate me more! Next month I start the academy to be a corrections officer, and next year I am getting married, so I have a bazillion reasons to be in shape and healthy :-) Can't wait to get started!!!

Welcome!! I just finally returned to work yesterday. It's been exhausting, but I'm a "good" kind of tired. I managed to get in some light workouts after work today and yesterday as well. Yay! Even my husband walked a mile with me tonight.. Woo woo!

Hi,
It's my first day here, I migrated over from another website because my blog-buddy ditched me, and I found that I was stagnant at my 15 lb lost stage.
I have a friend on this site, but I believe that the strength comes from people who can relate.
I chose this group because I'm a volunteer paramedic for the last 11 years. I've worked both in Canada and in Israel, and adore every second of it. I have a "real" job too (a chemist) - but I have to feed my adrenalin somewhere!
Nice to meet all of you - thanks for the motivation

Hello! My name is Amanda and I am an EMT-B and Volunteer firefighter. I would like to make it my career so I am here to make my life count and get down to my goal weight (I'm strong but I could be a lot stronger). My (ex)husband (who is a firefighter/EMT/911 dispatcher) decided to have an emotional affair with his ex and divorce me and its finalized May 9th. I am doing this so I feel good about myself and can use it to grow in my faith with Jesus and so I can get back into the dating world after I reach my goal. The last few years have been a roller-coaster. ^_^. I'm really excited and have been working really hard! I'm glad to see there is a group for this!

I am planning on becoming a Public Safety Officer so I need to be in great shape to get through all of the training and the paramedic course.

God Bless!

Welcome!!! Our team is slowly growing. Yay us!! :)

The computer I use at work for logging and weather is down, so we are using the emergency laptop. That means no extra stuff - like email. So I've been slow to get to all of that here at home. Wow I am far behind...

Welcome JRMEEKER! Dispatching a hospital police force must be really interesting work! My job crossing over with corrections and dispatching can be trying at times, but I really do like what I do. I don't have to dispatch very much anymore, but I do it enough that I'm still on top of it. I've been putting most of my continued training into corrections, other than the required updates to dispatching. One thing for sure, you never know what's going to happen each day.

Hi there! New to posting on this forum, so I hope I am doing this correctly. I dispatch for a fully certified police department in one of our larger, local hospitals. It's a new and rewarding challenge with each shift, but I love what I do. I used to dispatch for our city police department, but left there in favor of staying home and raising my then young children; now they are grown and in college and I was blessed enough to get back into the field of work that I truly missed.

Howdy, I am Charity and was a dispatcher plus firefighter until 2007 when I put it all on hold because of a HORRIBLE day in my life that caused me to get pregnant. My hopes that I will get to my goal weight and be able to get back to firefighting since I gained just over 100 lbs while I was pregnant. Since I started my Journey in July I am already down 40 lbs but still have more than 100 to go to get there

You are lucky you get breaks. We don't get them here. But, we aren't as busy as your metro area dispatch centers.

Welcome ! !
Finally someone to talk to :)

Our dispatch center handles law enforcement county wide & three towns marshals, and all of the E911 county wide.

I am now head of county corrections, but I still dispatch part of the time. My office is in the dispatch center.

Hi all, My name is Hilery. I'm a 911 dispatcher in North Dakota and Minnesota, we are a unique agency that dispatches for all the agencies in 2 counties that cross state lines. The dispatch floor isn't the easiest place to stick to a diet, with all the snacks and easy access to junk food which is usually what you end up eating on a rushed break. I'm determinded to make a change in 2011 and hope to finally hit my goals!

Welcome to the team. So far, it's just a team of 1, but hey, we gotta start somewhere right?

My name is Dawn. I work for a small county sheriff office in Nebraska. I started in 911 & sheriff dispatch, and now have moved across as the head of corrections. However, we are small enough, that if we are short on staff, I still dispatch.

Come on in and introduce yourself!
