Due to a financial bump in the road, I have added a part time job to my schedule, bringing my work load to 60 hours a week. Im tired, and find myself a bit emotional at times. But, so far I havent moved into the grumpy stage. (dont ask my husband, he may disagree with me)
Anyway, I want to introduce you to my part time job. I LOVE IT!
I work with tons of fruits, vegetables, specialty foods, and CANDY!!!!
When the cash registers are a slow, we tie bags of candy, like this one. Yes, that is a one pound bag of chocolate double dipped peanuts. YUM!! One evening I was tying these delicious goodies and a woman who looked to be around 80 asked me how I could work in a place with so much candy and stay so skinny? I got tears in my eyes, and she started apologizing. I stopped her mid "Im so sorry". and told her how she made my day!! Her daughter, who was standing behind her, and about 50 lbs overweight, looked mortified. I went on to explain that over the last two years, I have worked very hard to lose 80 lbs, and how her skinny comment totally made my day. THEN, the daughter started with tears. She said shes been trying to lose weight and tried diets, and vomiting, and pills, and just couldnt keep it off.
Perfect time to share my ups and downs and 'how I did its' but it was my way and may not work for you'.
