S/C/G: Lost 50 lbs, regained some

Height: 5'3"


In 1975 a friend of mine applied for a data entry job at JC Penney and was rejected. The HR person actually told her she would not be hired because she was overweight. At the time she weighed maybe 160.

Things have changed--at least prospective employers no longer tell people that to their face.
