I had a job that required me to work 50 hours a week, and when I would finally go home in the evening, my phone would constantly ring with problems that needed to be resolved right away, sometimes until 11pm. I became physically and mentally drained and unmotivated. I had no interest in cooking, packing a lunch or grocery shopping. I never exercised, because face it, it was not fun to start exercising and have the phone ring again for something else. I was so unhappy! My weight was out of control, I was stressed and sick, things were not going well!
In early 2007, I was lucky enough to have another job opportunity, so I quit and went for something else a lot less stressful. Sure I had to make sacrifices because the pay was less, and I have to work the night shift, but now 3 years later, I feel a lot happier, feel no stress, have a job that I enjoy a lot more, have time to exercise and have recentered my priorities. When I think about it, I can't believe I let a job affect my health the way it did. It just wasn't worth it!
