Talent can only get you so far. The same goes for determination. I strongly believe that if a person is to be successful in a mission, they must utilize tools. A professional person, no matter what profession, has a set of tools at the ready to get the job done. The best professionals make accomplishments look effortless and I can guarantee that they not only have a fine tool set they have also mastered those tools. In my years as a custom framer I spent my down time digging through print catalogues, memorizing artists, styles and media. To many of my coworkers, those print catalogues appeared to be nothing more than a resource for a customer to use to update their dining room. But to me, they were a powerful educational tool. Over time I became a knowledgeable and resourceful framer who not only knew about art, I also knew how to properly display it. The same can be said for my time as a student of accounting. I have found many resources that I pull from when completing an assignment. If I am having a difficult time understanding a term in the text provided, I go to www.accountingcoach.com or www.investopedia.com to find the answers needed.The point I am trying to get to is this. If I am going to be successful in weight loss, I am going to need to utilize some effective tools. I have some in place, but the one I am the most excited about is My Fitness Pal. I have gone through a couple of weight loss aps on my iPhone and found them to be rather disappointing. My darlin’ came across My Fitness Pal and was very excited by what it is able to do. We have been using it for a couple of days now and I have to say I am quite impressed with it.
