でも寝てばっかり いると太っちゃう〜

でも - but
寝て - 寝る, to lie down / to sleep, in て-form
ばっかり - after て form = only doing this
いる - ???
と - if
太っちゃう〜 - 太る, to grow fat, in casual しまう form, to express regret

“But if I do nothing but sleep, I just get fat!”

Not sure what the いる is doing in this sentence. Can anyone help?
