Ya. i am also very similar to you. I would sit in front of the computer whenever i am getting bored. Normally i would sit 3 hours in front of the computer in a day. But, too much of computering will result in obesity (as u said). It will also lead to eye strain . To avoid this , we should take short breaks. Also, while looking at the monitor , we can navigate our eyes to other things at regular intervals to avoid eye strain.

@ chelseaalawn You can go for a morning brisk walk . Later on , after few days , jog for a while. By allocating some time for exercise only , you can avoid fat.

Well for me I think I can stay up to eighteen hours straight in front of a computer. Cause in my work as a computer programming we have to meet some deadlines and we need to do it as early as it can, so almost all of the programmers stay up in front of the computer as long as possible .

Oh you are so slim, how can you say you are getting fat at all!? I cannot stay in front of the computer straight for too long because my butt will feel tired and uncomfortable, I like to do other stuff in between the time, it is too tiring to be playingon the computer all day.

If I am doing some kind of useful serious work I stay for more than 5 hours at a stretch before the computer. Though that includes some little breaks of 5-10 minutes gap. That's all. If I don't have any kind of useful thing I just could not help myself sitting before my computer and staring at it for nothing. I turn it off with in few minutes.

I sometimes can stay on the computer for more than 12 hours if I really need too. However, if I do that, the next day, I wake up and start exercising right away, as I do not want to gain weight.

Maybe I should start doing exercise tomorrow morning. As you said~~ I dont wanna gain weight.

in todays world every one is working on a computer mostly. so i think it is very easy to say that practically most of the time through out the day we are in front of the computer. i am a designer by profession and so i spend a hell lot of time in front of the computer while i am at work. and when i come back home, then also i spend a lot of time in front of my computer learning something or may be chilling out by chatting with friends on orkut and all.

I can sit for a maximum of only 2 hrs or may be a little more in front of the computer. I do not sit at a stretch and take a break for some hours, when I do some of my other jobs, and when I am finished with it I come back to the computer again. So on the whole it makes a lot of hours but at intervals.

I am in front of the computer the entire day as I am a software engineer and that is what I am meant to do.LOL. But then the obesity thing and not to mention the other health issues can definitely affect us.So I see to it that after every 20-25mins, I take breaks and flex my muscles, move around and also do eye excercises. I don't want to end up with health issues in the later years, coz of my careless now.
