How does everyone stay healthy while working in package? Working out? Running or walking after work? Dieting? Or a combination of some or all of those? For me delivering packages is one of the easiest manual labor jobs I've ever had. I slowly, but consistently, gained allot of weight from the time I started driving up until I finally realized it was starting to become a problem. Its easy to do without realizing it. We deliver to, or drive by, plenty of gas stations/convenient stores that sell plenty of unhealthy food and drinks. And they all seem to call out our names once we walk in. LOL! Then there is also plenty of fast food restaurants just begging for us to stop in for lunch. Hell, they didn't have to beg to get me in. LOL! A while back I decided to cut out as much sugar and carbs from my daily intake as I could. I haven't touched any of the sugary garbage that I was eating and drinking that contributed to me gaining so much weight in almost 6 months. When I eat fast food I don't buy the combos. And I started using a calorie counting app and it has been awesome. I initially dropped ten pounds (probably mostly water weight) rather quickly and then started an exercise routine after work that consists of walking, pushups, squats, and various abdominal exercises and without using any free weights. The weight just fell right off. I lost 25% of my body weight. The calorie counting app won't let you not eat enough calories (assuming one is honest) so I didn't have to worry about losing too much too fast. Most of us burn plenty of calories throughout the day but eating and drinking too much junk while doing so, combined with continuing that during our time off, more than puts back those calories. Look around and check out your co-workers during the next PCM. There are likely more overweight drivers than one would expect to see. Its easy to get to that point though. I didn't realize how bad I actually had gotten until my wife showed me a picture of myself that she had taken during our last vacation. Sometimes you have to lose that extra weight before you can see it. Especially that extra sogginess that forms on the face around the cheekbones and neck. But now I'm maintaining a weight that falls in the range suggested by fitness experts for my height and drink only water and basically eat 5-7 smaller meals and snack a day. I feel lighter on my feet and definitely have more energy. There has been one problem though. I had to buy all new clothes! But I'll take having to drop a small fortune on new clothes over getting diabetes and a screwed up kidney and/or liver any day.
