HEAVY WEIGHT DESIGNER
I have been working in the design industry for the last 12 years. My current position is designer with limited responsibility and have changed jobs 3 times so far. Every time I change studio, I seem to gain a few pounds. I have come to the conclusion that if I change jobs again I will gain a further 5 pounds, I am now hesitating to take the chance of taking a new job in a very prestigious company.
A designer with 12 years experience would be expected to have a senior position, I think it is about time you apply for that senior creative job which requires numerous meetings. Leaving and entering the building several times in a day might help you in alleviating those pounds.
