Have you gained a lot of weight lately? Do you blame it on your job? I've been working at a pizza place for way over a year now. When I first started working here, I lost a lot of weight because of stress in my personal life. Now I'm gaining insane amounts of weight, I don't know if it is being around free food all day or just the stress from being here, but I feel like my job is making me huge!

Yes i would be when you have work like almost sitting on your tabel or on computer definatly you will gian your wiat and in dinner and lunch you eat very havey food like pizza then you will gain fat and this is very dangrous of health some time you blame your job but i you have a job like marketing or some consultancy work then you cant blame your job but some time people are blaming their job because they are eating pizza and very lush chease so that why they become fat and they are stil blaming their jobs you should controll other wise it may be a cause of hartattack or hart fail deaises and in work peopel are streesed because they have lot of work to do and they have more respositbilty thats why they always in stress but as your pic you are not looking fat

I'm a SAHM, so I can't blame my job. lol My husband, however, blames me for his weight gain over the years. He said that it is my fault because I feed him to well! lol I remember working at McDonalds and after a year or so I started losing weight because just looking at the food about made me gag, much less eating it! We got a free meal if we worked at least 4 hours, so I was always eating there. After a while, though, I got sick of it and couldn't eat it. It's probably a little bit of both, free food and stress. My mom has a desk job and is constantly complaining about her weight. She gets upset because it's to easy to skip lunch and eat something at her desk. It's easy to munch while she works. She has gotten to where she has to consciously take healthier snack foods so she isn't tempted to eat junk. It doesn't help when the people she works with (in her office) are always having pitch ins, and they usually bring junk foods. Cakes, cookies and such. Hardly ever anything remotely healthy. Having all of that junk around makes it easy to sit and eat it. I know that I tend to eat when I am worried or bored. I have to try to make sure that I have non-junk laying around to eat, but it's so hard not to choose junk compared to healthy stuff!

Boy do I ever wish my job would put some weight on me . I have been trying to gain weight for years and can't seem to do it and if anything it is making me lost even more because I tend to eat less on the days I have to work because I am not comfortable eating in front of people so I wait all day til I get home to have a quick bite and go to bed .
