Happy belated St. Patty's Day. Did you wear green this week? I totally didn't.
On a more serious note I received an email from a reader last week about discrimination she has received while trying to find employment. She thought it would be a great article idea and while I agree with her I have no concrete thoughts or experience on the idea other than I agree that it is wrong. I started a forum thread about this topic and I would love it if you would chime in with any experience you might have either looking for work or in a current job where you felt you were discriminated against because of your size. The link to the forum is further down in the newsletter and the thread is called "Too Fat to Work".
(FYI - If you happen to be one of the Yahoo users who haven't received your newsletter in the last few weeks you might want to email yahoo and complain. They've been bouncing our emails even though people have signed up for the newsletters. Some go through and some don't. Go figure. And if you haven't signed up for the Large and Lovely newsletter please let me know. There's someone out there who thinks it's amusing to sign up people to the fat lady newsletter (it takes all kinds)).
Happy Hump Day!
