Growing up I remember big Sunday dinners after church. Grams and my mom cooking and getting everything ready for some serious grub. Fried chicken, homemade mac & cheese, green’s, cornbread and if we were really lucky homemade apple pie.
I remembering this today because I am helping Grams fix her favorite meal, ham hocks and cabbage. Her and I prepping and preparing food. Two people from different generations enjoying the company of each other cooking.
Enjoy your Sunday 😆
So two weeks ago I had an interview. Two days after that, I was called back to do a 2nd interview this time with the people I would be working with peer-to-peer I believe they are called. I had that interview a week ago exactly today. I received a phone call just a little over two hours ago.
I got the JOB!! They offered me the position. I go in on Monday to finish up paperwork and do the drug screen (they won’t find anything) and sign paperwork. My official start date is Nov 3, which is fitting since my birthday is on Halloween/Samhain, I have given myself a very nice birthday present.
Such a huge sigh of relief. To be actually able to pay bills on time and not have to worry about what else we may need to cut to stay above the wave.
So I begin again on this new path….
So I am following this person on FB and Instagram plus size women losing weight gaining confidence. Talks really big about helping each other. Then sends these emails stating how much everything would cost and I am like Whoa Nelly that is expensive. I say as much in the email stating um, yeah ridiculous pricing not able to squeeze that much from the budget that is already shoestring tight. I get the response: When you are actually serious and ready to get healthy email me.
Me: Um I am serious and ready. But money wise not able to commit to something like that. Sorry that is my gas and light bill, groceries for the week and/or gas for the cars.
She posted something on her page that again I found problematic: “If you are not willing to invest in your health at this time, this group would not be the right fit.” I highlighted what I have a issue with.
Investing in my health doesn’t have to be monetary. But it seems like that it all you seem to be focus on. DON’T offer free coaching and groups and then say it will cost $150 a month to get all of that “FREE” stuff you mention. FUCK that!
Someone made a comment under her post stating that some folks don’t have that type of money to do spend on stuff like this. Doesn’t mean they are not invested in getting healthy. I remember liking the comment. Comment disappeared from the page.
I am beginning to think you are part of the problem in the Bad Diet Industry. You were once a heavy plus size women you have lost weight and now seem IMHO preying on other plus size women. Now this is my opinion and my opinion only. Which is why I won’t name her or the company she represents. This is just what I see and can’t prove a damn thing. Gut feeling doesn’t count as proof.
I just wanted to vent. Plus size women already issue with being taken advantage of without someone who was once one of us, doing the same.
I just can’t deal with shit like that….
Lovely change of weather this weekend brought in a wicked chest cold. Plus lots of snot. I have an job interview tomorrow at 10 am and I have been drinking my weight in orange juice and taking mucinex religiously. I can’t look or sound like a snotty mess to the interviewer.
I really need this job.
