Don’t need to answer every question on the message board every single day. Saves time, good advice.

"There's a difference about someone swearing AT you versus swearing about a situation."

A team lead told my training this about a 1.5 years ago when I transitioned into a new role. We deal with medical claims that are often denied because the records don't support the claim. So, we get some angry callers.

My football coach convinced me not to drop out of high school. I see where my friends are that did not listen and look at where I am and can honestly say that advice changed my life.

When I was laid off, a co-worker gave me the following words of advice,"Put a higher value on your skills because YOU have value".

Having a friend show me Sparkpeople and how it worked in counting calories and helping to keep track so as to not overeat! I have followed it to the letter and have lost the weight and reached Goal Weight 2x and due to no regular exercise the first time [after losing the wt.], then emotional eating the 2nd time [no one came to my child's bday party], today I am only 7 or less pounds toward GOAL WEIGHT!
And it DOES work! I kept the wt. off for 8 mos. the first time and ONE YEAR the 2nd time, so I KNOW it will STAY OFF permanently as I am much SMARTER in my food choices and exercise amts. this time round!! emoticon

In God my heart trusts. ----Proverbs 28:7

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

KNOW that the LORD is GOD.It is HE who made us,And we are HIS;
We are HIS people,
The sheep of HIS pasture.

Learning about moderation. I used to be an all or nothing dieter. Which simply led to a lot of frustration.
