Working for Weight Watchers


The day that we left for China, I received an email from a woman at Weight Watchers. I had filled out an application a while back, but did not think it would be the right time for me to get a second job. Apparently they had saved my application on file. I was told that they were looking for new receptionists and were wondering if I would be willing to consider the job.

Over a month went by before I responded to this woman. I took time to pray while we were gone to see if this would be something that would be worth my while or not. I do not want to overwhelm myself with all of the things that I am involved in. However, I want to be able to help lighten our financial load as much as possible.

After we got back from our trip I decided to reply to the email to see if the positions had already been filled. I was told that they were not filled yet and that if I wanted an interview I would have to do it within the next week. I scheduled my interview for Saturday, January 15, 2011. The interview went so well. I was not nervous and had told the Lord that I just wanted to be myself. If they did not like me for who I am everyday then I did not want to work for them. I explained to the woman I met with that I would love to work for Weight Watchers, because my weight loss has made such a HUGE impact on my life. However, if they had chosen not to hire me that would not change my desire and drive to encourage others around me who are trying to lose weight.

This morning I received a phone call from my favorite Weight Watchers leader, Amanda. She told me that I had been hired and was calling to welcome me to the team! I was simply speechless. Look at the amazing work that God has done in my life through weight loss. I am so excited for what He has in store for me as I begin to work with Weight Watchers part-time.

Congrats lady! Great news. Is this an evening/weekend gig? Is this a volunteer thing with WW or do they actually pay you to work for them?

I'm one week away from lifetime member status. So stoked!

That is such a great opportunity. I know that God will use you to encourage the folks that come into that WW office for their weekly meetings. I've never met you, but can tell that you will be a welcomed site to them and such a great example to them as well!

Congratulations on your new job! I've always thought that doing something like that would be a wonderful way to force myself to stay motivated even after a wt loss. I know you will be a wonderful encourager as you help people through the line that leads to the "dreaded" scale. :)
