Why is it that evil always triumphs over good?

Friday, June 18, 2010

Just a little vent here. I am in the teaching profession and am currently trying to get hired on as a teacher. There were 6 of us who applied for the open position at the school. One of us who had been an assistant at that school for several years. Anyways after the principle had said she wouldn't hire a first year teacher in first grade, she hired one. This was the one in the group of us that had backstabbed the teacher she was working with and played the pity card saying I need this job or I won't be returning to the school. Is it really fair that she was given the opportunity? No...It seems as if this is a reoccuring pattern in the school. The other first year teacher from last year was another one who ratted out other teachers. I'm not that type of person to go and tattle. Me and another girl have gone above and beyond and always helped out when asked. How come neither one of us were able to get the job for doing things the right way? Just frustrating.

    It's the same in our school system. It's all in who you "know" So sorry this has happened to you. Don't give up . . . there are better places and you will find one.

    Hugs. You didn't get the job because you would never survive in a terrible environment such as that. Your job is waiting for you and it will be one that you love.

    Pay Grade comes to mind, and its the children who lose, not because of a first year hire, it is who they hire. If its a private school, hope the parents are paying attention because seems they aren't getting their monies worth.

I agree, they may have done you a favor.

  Maybe you should count yourself lucky that you didn't get the job. Sounds like a very toxic working environment, which isn't something I'd like to work in. You might be destined for bigger and better pastures.

Hope things improve on the job front.

    If it appears that evil is winning over good, then you know you are in a battle and the war is still being won. Maybe that isn't the school for you or the environment to fulfill your spirit. Sometimes when a door is closed another one is opened. Is this the only school in the area. Maybe you will have to travel, but the school you should be working at, the school that has been waiting for someone just like you is out there. Don't give up, good will win the war! Besides do you want to work right next to the tattle tails emoticon

How fat was I?

Monday, June 14, 2010

So today as I was looking in the mirror, I was just thinking that I still looked really big. Then I wondered how big did I look before? I hope that someday I can look at myself and see someone that I am proud of.

    I am proud of you and all you have already accomplished and I know you will achieve your goal.

I just want to offer a word of caution here. When I was in my mid-thirties I lost quite a bit of weight. But when I looked in the mirror I still saw myself as too big. So I kept losing. When I got down under 100 pounds I quit getting on the scale because I still believed I was fat, so the scale just couldn't be right. Fortunately, my doctor diagnosed anorexia and I got everything turned around. Just be careful. Remember to love yourself no matter what size you are!!

    Linda, you're beautiful! If you take another a look, there is lots there to be proud of! I have a hard time finding things i like in the mirror with the lights on...then one day i noticed my shadow, not too bad of a shape...it's baby steps, and i think we are our worst own critic!

Seeing results

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

So in the last two days I have had several people come up and tell me that they can tell that I have been losing weight. This is just the motivation I needed to get me through my plateau. I have been struggling around the 210 mark and getting frustrated.

Once I get through this week and next I will be ready to focus and me and finally get under 200. I haven't been there since high school, so I am ready to commit. I just need to have more free time. That is probably why I am in the rut I am. I can do it and I will do it! That's what I have to tell myself.

One last thing, I noticed today that my pants which I bought at the beginning of this year are already getting lose, so woohoo!

    Congratulations on your weight loss! It's nice when people notice, and getting new clothes is fun, too. I started my weight loss at 220, and now I'm down to 174. I'm losing about a pound a week and feeling great. Keep at it and the weight loss will come.

Vacation

Saturday, March 20, 2010

So this week is my Spring Break, I'm finding out how hard it is to eat healthy. All my friends want to meet for a meal and I've been having to find stuff on the menu. I was really worried, but have found that I can be successful at meals. I just have to keep up with my calories and get in a workout. I have been successful at both. I had to explain to my friend last night why I was being careful with what I was eating. She was trying to tell me that I should eat everything and anything that I wanted because I was on vacation and said it wouldn't hurt me. I'm glad that her fiance stepped in and said that he knew where I was coming from and being smart.

    ACtually this is one of my best friends who has always been smaller than me, but now I'm actually smaller than her! I've spent this week trying to show her it's important, but she keeps coming up with excuses :(

    You are doing the smart thing! There are great things about vacation that you will remember . . . extra food is not one of them. I just got back from five days of visiting with family and friends. I love my time with them. We ate out everyday! I got my workouts in and I counted my calories. I even indulged a little more than usual one night with an appetizer. At the very next meal, I was right back on track. I'm pleased that I was actually able to lose 3 lbs. this week! Amazing! I'm glad I don't have food regrets to get in the way of all those yummy memories of time with my buddies!

    I am so glad that you had someone stand up for you. I know that it can be hard in a group to eat differently. I know that when we are on vacation, I eat things that I normally wouldn't, but I always make sure that we have lots of active things to do too. I do ease up a little on vacation, but not so much that I blow all the hard work that I have done.

Enjoy your vacation!

    I'm glad that someone stood up for you. I made a joke about going over my calorie count and the other person said that he has never been so vain as to diet. I was somewhat surprised by his comment. I explained that I was trying to lower my chance of diabetes because I knew that he probably couldn't disagree with that one. I'm not trying to change my appearance. I'm trying to be healthier.
