I've been working for an airline for 25 which is now looking a little shaky. I do know I've loved it and now I look around and wonder if I could enjoy anything as much. Nothing will replace that cafe family but you will find space for new things now- a volunteer job, a choir, a new type of exercise.. Good luck and best wishes.
I'm not super-slim after three kids but I'm well in a healthy weight range and really enjoy the way exercise makes me feel and I get a lot of pleasure knowing that I am and will be healthy enough to look after myself and my family. It sounds judgemental and maybe it is but when I see someone who is morbidly obese I do see pain and suffering but when they also have kids who are overweight I see that as child abuse. The choices you make are written on your body and making poor choices for yourself is bad enough because society as a whole is diminished by so many people using more resources than they should but sentencing children to a lifetime of difficulty and limited options due to their obesity is appalling. I think the mindset to accept people as they are enables people to hide behind weight instead of adopting a lifestyle of movement and fresh food.
