I am accessing some external sites using company proxy server.
In order to record this using Jmeter, I have to change proxy settings to local host.
Due to this, I am unable to record those sites with Jmeter.
Can anyone help me resolve this issue?

You point jMeter proxy settings to your company proxy and your browser proxy to the local jMeter instance.
Gets you a flow like: Browser -> jMeter -> Company Proxy -> Internet
If you are testing from behind a firewall/proxy server, you may need to provide JMeter with the firewall/proxy server hostname and port number. To do so, run the jmeter[.bat] file from a command line with the following parameters:
jmeter -E https -H my.proxy.server -P 8000 -u username -a password -N localhost
Niels van Reijmersdal has already given a very good suggestion.
Apart from that if you wish to record the requests you make via your browser, a good option is to use Blazemeter (It is an extension of Google Chrome browser).
With Blazemeter you can record all the websites/links you surf in your chrome browser. Each HTTP(S) request made from your browser and your actions performed are recorded in a test plan.
You can save this test plan and also download it as a JMX file (this is the file format of a Jmeter Test Plan).
You can then open this JMX file in Jmeter to edit and also run your tests.
