    I have passed the online and telephone interview.... I am travelling 100 miles for my interview......

    But i know when they see me they will not give me the job..... in fact im adamant they will look at me feel im incompetent to carry out the roles of the job (loft measuring and up and down ladders)

    This is the biggest opportunity and iv blown it..... i knew this interview was coming but did i manage to loose weight..... no!

    how can come across mentally thin!!!!:cry:

    If a company refuses you a job because of the way you look, its a company not worth working for.

    Keep your chin up, go to the interview and treat it as a training session for the better job that will come along :)

    Chin up. You've lost 10% of your intended weight loss goal, and I would tell them that I was so stoked for this job that this was what pushed me to start getting in shape. If you've been practicing going up and down ladders to "train" for the job, let them know that, too. Focus on your aptitude and interest in the job. The fact that you have chosen a healthy plan to lose weight as opposed to a dangerous crash diet means that you will be an employee who is committed to safety and following established procedures.

    You can't control other peoples' reactions, but you can project self-confidence, interest and motivation. Now, go in and knock 'em out!!

    No ifs or buts about it! No-one cares what size you are! You silly billys! :) Just go in and be yourselves and they'll love you! :)
