Wondering if I lost some weight, would I have more success in finding a job?! just thinking the employers group insurance would be affected not only cause I’m over weight but also a former smoker. With weight being the issue at hand. I need this to be a successful(In both my job search and weight loss). I’m noticing lots of women and men getting in shape and those same people seem to be doing well in their professional life. Think bout it!!! Many people equate “fat” with lazy. I’m just saying that can be the reason you’re not getting the job.
