I just want to send you a hug because I just experienced a size change from 6 to 10 after packing on 25 lbs since August. I made a medication change and my body just exploded it felt like. It’s very hard. I don’t feel like myself and my now ill fitting clothing is a constant reminder of how my body has changed. It has significantly ramped up my depression.

The sites you tried are my go tos, so I don’t have any advice. Just that I hear you and it is a hard thing to grapple with to have your body change. Sending a hug and support ❤️

Thanks Senior Manager 1. Sending back hugs as well. Ditto for me. It actually is a side effect of the depression medication I was on. Double whammy here.

Doesn’t help to have a type A husband who is aspiring towards a six pack while I keep packing on lbs in spite of exercise and diet changes

Check out Boden - lots of great cotton dresses.

Also look on Nordstrom - they usually have “resort” attire in the winter.

Do people really ever get jobs through cold interviews from job postings? I’ve been trying it for years, done alot of third-round interviews and such, all generally positive experiences, but every job I’ve ever landed has involved a personal recommendation, warm intro, or someone I’ve worked with at a previous role or as a competitor, etc. A fair number of the jobs I’ve notice go “unfilled” with postings remaining up for months or years after. Most places draw out the process 2+ months.

Switching jobs for the first time (late 20s). I have a 401k with PwC; new co doesn’t offer matching. Also have savings.

Thoughts / recommendations for the above?

I need a supportive group hence coming here and not the company bowl. In my 10 years working , I have never found a place more people friendly , employee focused than EY. But today a peer told a staff as an immigrant She will have to more careful than someone who belong here on her actions cause actions may have negative consequences like she not able to be with family whereas he doesn’t. He also suggested that she needs to be careful as when layoffs happen that immigrant will be let go first.
