We are one of many families in America feeling the stress of the economy. I've been unemployed for several months, and consistently looking for a job. We are a 5 person family and barely staying afloat. Honestly, there are some months that I don't know how we are going to make it (but somehow we do).
2 weeks ago I went on an interview where I rocked it! The manager was impressed with my resume, and said that I had all the qualifications that they were looking for. I walked out of there confident that they would call me back with a job offer. Today I received the call and what was pure confidence in myself a week ago has turned into pure depression within seconds of hearing they hired someone else for the position. I am heartbroken.
What I really want to do is go into the kitchen and stuff my face, but in the end what will it solve? Will the manager call me back and change his mind? Will a job just happen to fall in my lap? Will the struggles our family have endured magically disappear? Will the feelings go away by eating a gallon of ice cream?
Instead of raiding my kitchen for a bingefest, I'm making a conscience effort to do something else. At this moment, I'm choosing not to turn to food for comfort. I'm choosing to look at the end result of my weight loss goal.....no matter how hard it is.
