So I got a job at an upscale workout clothing store. I don’t need a job but I want one to keep busy and I’m really pysched about it. I think, for the most part, it’s going to be a fun atmosphere and just a really great experience.
The problem is – is that it’s very big for this company to have it’s employees get out in the community, togehter and workout. Your co-workers sort of become your friends, it’s big on that kind of culture and it’s very common that before or after work you meet up for spin, boxing, zumba, yoga classes. Sometimes that’s actually on-the-job paid time too. For a normal, healthy person – it’s a dream. A work environment that supports workout goals and gives you free classes whenever you want them. Very social, very fun.
I’m concerned that it might turn back into obsession for me. I don’t know if it’s smart to risk it but it’s hard to express how badly I want this job and how competetive it was to get it. Any support or advice would be appreciated.

gingerminty: you work at lulu, right? Not especially hard to get hired, but anyway.
Hopefully this job will actually be a positive impact on your life. I think your main concern should be getting your drinking habits under control. Most people I know that work at our lulu lemon care too much about their bodies to drink excessive amounts.

Have you seen a counselor? I looked at your other posts and saw you’ve recently gained a bunch of weight and are drinking a lot. Perhaps this will be a positive thing instead – maybe you’ll lose some weight and once that starts, youll feel better and wont feel the need to turn to alcohol. I would start seeing a counselor to help with your addictions.

Ummmm. I don’t appreciate your snark. Wow – I’m baffled by how incredibly rude you are. Don’t even try to pretend that your digusting response was under the guise of being helpful.
And I haven’t had a drink in 15 days.
And actually – when they interview 12 people and only hire 1….that’s pretty competitive. You trying to take me down a notch says way more about YOU than it does me.

“Not especially hard to get hired, but anyway”
Wow, that was unnecessarily condescending.
