5 Traits Successful Weight Losers Share

Losing the weight isn't easy, but keeping it off is even harder -- 95 percent of dieters regain what they lost within three years. How did the other 5 percent maintain their newer, slimmer size? Steal their secrets!

Weigh in once a week
Several studies have shown that checking in with your bathroom scale on a regular basis helps keep the pounds away. The reason: When you catch any small gain early on, you can more easily undo the damage with a slight adjustment in diet and exercise.

There's no need to hop on the scale everyday, though; weighing in once a week is fine, says American Heart Association, or try keeping track of inches lost instead of pounds.

Strive for five fruit and veggie servings
Women who ate the most fruit and vegetable servings (at least five a day) were 60 percent more likely to ward off weight regain than those who consumed fewer servings, according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).Fresh produce typically is loaded with fiber and water, which tends to make a meal feel larger and keep you full longer."Since it can also take up to 24 hours for high-fiber foods to pass through your digestive tract, they can help control your appetite -- and calorie intake -- for up to a day," explains Stephen Gullo, Ph.D., author of The Thin Commandments.

Outsmart diet pitfalls at work
Almost 55 percent of people who experienced pound rebound after weight loss blamed office culture as a diet saboteur, according to research at the University of Kansas at Kansas City Medical Center.Some ways to beat on-the-job weight gain: Stash light snacks such as fiber-rich cereal bar or a single-serving pack of nuts in your desk and reach for it when you have the mid-afternoon munchies instead of the high-calorie snacks at the vending machine. To avoid overindulgence at business lunches, have a light bite before you meet with clients.

Clock in 30 minutes of exercise every day
Coupled with healthy eating, moderate to vigorous exercise helps keep the weight off for good. You're twice as likely to stay trim if you get 30 to 60 minutes of activity on most days of the week than those who don't, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study.You'll maintain lean muscle mass when you work out regularly, which means you'll burn energy even at rest. Plus, you'll be able to give in to the occasional slice of cake without putting on the weight.

Ditch the fast food
People who swear off fast food entirely are 62 percent more likely to maintain their trim shape than than those who eat it at least twice a week.On days when you're eating out, opt for healthier, lower-fat choices -- look for the words "baked", "broiled", "grilled", "dry-sauteed", "poached" or "steamed" on the menu. Select entrees with fruits and vegetables as key ingredients, and go for broth-based soups instead of cream-based ones which are higher in fat and calories.Preparing your own meals, however, is still the best way to ensure you're eating foods that are low in fat and calories. Try a low-calorie or low-fat cookbook for tasty yet nutritious recipes.

Never save something for a special occasion

A friend of mine opened his wife's underwear drawer and picked up a silk paper wrapped package:

'This, - he said - isn't any ordinary package.'
He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box.
'She got this the first time we went to New York , 8 or 9
years ago. She has never put it on , was saving it for a special occasion.
Well, I guess this is it.
He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the
funeral house, his wife had just died.
He turned to me and said:
'Never save something for a
special occasion.
Every day in your life is a special occasion'.
I still think those words changed my life.
Now I read more and clean less.
I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.
I spend more time with my family, and less at work.
I understand that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through
I no longer keep anything.
I use crystal glasses every day...
I'll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it.
I don't save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to.
The words 'Someday...' and '
One Day...' are fading away from my dictionary.
If it's worth seeing,
listening, or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now....
I don't know what my friend's wife would have done if she knew she
wouldn't be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.
I think she might have called her relatives and closest

She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels.
I'd like to think she would go out for Chinese, her favorite food.

Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.


I am Mr.David Zuma, a banker with the above mentioned bank in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso in West Africa, holding the post of the Audit & Accounts dept. On January 31, 2000 one Mrs.Joyce Lake, an American citizen, An Astute Business woman of international repute, a contract with ecowas country, who was the top sellers at Frank Howard Allen Realtors,also an avid community volunteer and a world traveller, (Real estate, contract and Farming .etc) made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit, valued at ($11,300,000.00) Eleven Million, Three hundred thousand United States Dollars) for twelve calendar months in my Bank Branch.

Upon Maturity, we sent a routine notification to her forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from her company that Mrs.Joyce Lake and her Mr.Ronald Lake died on Alaska Airlines Flight No. 261, which crashed on January 31 2000.

After further investigation, it was discovered that she died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace her next of kin proved fruitless.On further investigation, it was discovered that Late Mrs.Joyce Lake, did not declare any next of kin or relatives in all his official documents, including her Bank Deposit paper here in our Bank..... The total sum, ($11,300,000.00) is still here in our bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. All efforts to trace and locate her next of kin proved abortive.

In accordance with the country's banking laws and constitution guiding this banking institution stated that after the expiration of 10 years, if no body or person comes for the claim as the next of kin , such money will be revert to the Burkina Faso government treasury if nobody applies as the next of Kin to claim of the fund. Consequently, It is upon this respect, I seek to present you as a foreign partner to stand in as the next of kin to the late Mrs.Joyce Lake, since no one will come up for the claim.

The reason for a foreigner in the business is for the fact that the deceased woman was a foreigner and it is not authorized by the law guiding our Bank for a citizen of this country to make such claim. this is the reason while the request of you as a foreigner is necessary to apply for the release and transfer of the fund smoothly into your reliable Bank account. I got your contact through the Internet when I was making a research for a foreigner that I will use in this great opportunity because I don't want this money to be recalled to our Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

Many Banks in Africa use to confiscate a lot of foreigners money in there various Banks after the fund lying dormant for years. I agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as my foreign partner, while 60% will be for me. Please be honest to me and trust is our watchword in this transaction. This transaction will undergo normal Banking procedures of transferring inheritance fund and if you are really sure of your integrity, trustworthy and confidentiality, and accept not to cheat or disappoint me after this business, reply with your;

Your Full Name............................
Your Sex...........................................
Your Age......................................
Your Country..............................
Marital Status..............................
Your Occupation............................
Your Personal Mobile Number....................
Your Personal Fax Number............................

As soon as i receive your postive respond i will send you the text of application which you will use to apply in my bank as next of kin.

Mr. David Zuma,
Audits & Accounts Manger.

2010 - Year of the Tiger

The Year of The Tiger begins on February 14th 2010. Drama, intensity, change and travel will be the keywords for 2010. Unfortunately, world conflicts and disasters tend to feature during Tiger years also, so it won’t be a dull 12 months for anyone. The Year of the Tiger will bring far reaching changes for everyone. New inventions and incredible technological advances have a good chance of occurring. For all of the Chinese horoscope signs, this year is one to be active – seizing opportunities and making the most of our personal and very individual talents. Everything happens quickly and dramatically in a Tiger year – blink and you could miss an important chance of a lifetime!
Let’s take a look at each animal, their major personality traits and what the prospects are for 2010, the Year of the Tiger.

The Rat
Rats are charming, elegant and clever. They can be a bit gossipy and prone to being distracted. They’re also thrifty and very good with handling money. Family and close friends are exceptionally important to them. The Rat is charming beyond words and throughout his undoubtedly long life he will always be popular and will have many friends.
Forecast for 2010 The Rat may be feeling quite tired and deflated after 2009, which saw him keeping his head down, working and staying out of trouble. The Year of the Tiger is going to be fast-paced for the Rat, which in itself does tend to make them slightly uncomfortable. But it is essential that they go with the flow and seize opportunities and take adventures – this year is going to be important for them. A lot of Rats may have dreamt of travel in 2009 but were unable to take trips either due to financial or work commitments. This year will be so different! Travel will feature strongly for many and if there is dream destination in mind, it may become a reality during 2010. February and March can bring interesting work offers, while June to August and December will bring happy social occasions. Romantically, September and October bring tempting offers for single Rats, while those who are attached will find the summer most special. It is essential for all persons born under this sign to be extra thoughtful and caring throughout the year – an inadvertent remark or gesture could lead to discord with loved ones.
Interesting Rat Facts:
Zodiac Stone: Garnet
Special Flower: Narcissus
Best Hours: 11 pm -1 am
Season: Winter
Horoscope Colors: Black, White, Purple

The Ox
Sturdy, earthy, no-nonsense – that’s the Ox. Affectionate and easy-going, the Ox can show a fierce temper when agitated. He is neat, tidy, quiet and studious, with a great love of his home. Music can be a great love. Family life and a loving partner are high on the Ox’s priorities. A wonderful loyal friend.
Forecast for 2010 The Ox loves methodical planning and everything working out in the correct time. The Year of the Tiger will throw all this to the wind with it’s fast pace and unexpected developments! People born under this sign may find 2010 a challenge but in a good way. The Ox will have to adapt to new routines, delays and obstacles thrown in his way, but he will be well able for any task and may find new hidden talents and personal power he didn’t know existed. Hobbies, relaxing pursuits and friendships will all be beautifully highlighted during the Year of the Tiger and will provide a welcome relief to any stresses he may face. Home improvements and redecorating plans will move forward smoothly with excellent results. Career opportunities will present themselves from April to June, while exciting, intense romantic encounters are likely in July, August and December. An important aspect for those under this sign in 2010 is to be mindful and caring of loved ones. It will be crucial to listen to them and also to accept any help they may offer during this changeable year.
Interesting Ox Facts:
Zodiac Stone: Aquamarine
Special Flower: Carnation
Best Hours: 1-3 am
Season: Winter
Horoscope Colors: Green, Yellow, Black

The Tiger
Magnetic, passionate and grand! When the Tiger does anything, it’s noticed! Indecisiveness and stubbornness can mar the sparkle of the Tiger personality. On the one hand generous, on the other hand a little mean, it’s sometimes hard to know where one stands with the Tiger. Flexible, honest and truly entertaining, one has a friend for life with a Tiger.
Forecast for 2010 Being the Tiger’s own year, 2010 holds great promise for those born under this sign, with exciting developments happening for them both personally and professionally. Some Tigers may be feeling disappointed and disheartened after 2009 and it will be important to leave the past behind and concentrate on the future, which is looking so bright! Financially, everything improves this year for those born under this sign and money-making thoughts and ideas should be fully explored and investigated. With the fast pace of this year for all signs, the Tiger needs to take extra care in planning and thinking all projects through – no rushing headlong into schemes during 2010! Tigers looking for romance will possibly see a friendship suddenly develop into something more personal with exciting consequences. August, December and January will see a very active and entertaining social calendar, but all of 2010 will see fun activities for the Tiger. The Spring months, March to May, will bring encouraging and interesting job opportunities, but the Tiger will still have to make sure he puts himself forward and gets noticed at work.
Interesting Tiger Facts:
Zodiac Stone: Sapphire
Special Flower: Violet
Best Hours: 3-5 am
Season: Winter
Horoscope Colors: Green, Blue, Yellow

The Rabbit
Cuddly, warm and affectionate are the attributes of the Rabbit. Mysterious and a great party-giver and host, the Rabbit enjoys being the centre of attention once in a while. The Rabbit is occasionally over cautious and can be a bit boring. He is also one of the luckiest signs in the Chinese Astrology chart.
Forecast for 2010 The focus will be on the Rabbit’s career and job prospects during the Year of the Tiger, with unexpected promotions and recognition very likely. Travel is also highlighted, with short breaks and spontaneous, fun trips featuring during the late Spring and early Summer. Healthwise, the Rabbit could find the speed of the Tiger year exhausting and it’s important he balance work with rest and relaxation. Promotion at work or in the Rabbit’s career will be sure to feature and they need to act quickly – no hanging back to see what happens! Some Rabbits will be dissatisfied with their current living arrangements and the perfect new home may appear most unexpectedly – they must act quickly and not miss out! Friendships will play a big role during 2010 with possibly one or two friends needing extra care and help. May and October to January will bring special and fun social gatherings. February and March will be significant and fortunate for those looking to change jobs while July and August will be most auspicious for single Rabbits looking for love – an unexpected liaison could result from a work related social event.

Special Flower: Jonquil
Best Hours: 5-7 am

The Dragon
Assertive, energetic and talented are all words to describe the Dragon personality. On the other hand, the Dragon has a tendency to be condescending and tactless without realising it. They generally enjoy robust health and tend to be very successful in anything they turn their hand to.
Forecast for 2010 Dragons will find the quick pace of 2010 very much to their liking and they will be keen to spread their wings and look for new possibilities and opportunities. As with the other signs in the Chinese Zodiac, the Dragon must make use of all the openings and opportunities that present themselves during this year. Teamwork will feature strongly and the Dragon will progress further and faster in his career if he bears this in mind. The Dragon’s financial situation will indeed be rosy during 2010 with a possible increase in income as well as a sum of money coming to them during the year. They must be careful to be disciplined about spending and not make too many impulse buys! May to August will be lovely months for socialising with friends and possible romantic encounters. Dragons do need to remember that love needs attention and if it is taken for granted, problems can arise. May, September and November see the most interesting career changes. Dragons need to take time during the year to have a holiday or getaway with loved ones – with such a busy year, they must not neglect those who matter to them the most.

Special Flower: Sweet Pea

The Snake
Intelligent and highly intuitive are two of the Snake’s many fine qualities. He makes an amusing and romantic friend with a definite flirtatious streak. When challenged or criticised he can be a sore loser. The Snake is very lucky with money and is fond of the odd bet or two. He is quick-witted and enjoys reading, music and occasionally the paranormal side of life.
Forecast for 2010 The Snake likes to make slow and steady progress and the Year of the Tiger will find him swept along with unexpected developments – they need to adapt and keep up the pace. On the career front, the Snake will have quite a bit of competition and needs to stay ahead of the game in order to be in line for any promotions or career advancement opportunities. He needs to seek advice from those who can help and not appear too independent – working with colleagues will pay off handsomely during the year. Money management will be crucial during the Year of the Tiger and with careful planning, they should have little to worry about. Time spent with loved ones, either on a well-earned holiday or at home, will rejuvenate the Snake’s spirit during a busy and intense year. February through April will favor work endeavors and promotion. July through December will offer many opportunies for single Snakes to meet a special romantic partner. Travel looks most likely during March and June through August, with fun and romance well starred. Snakes can be shy and loners, but the Year of the Tiger will ensure they have many happy social events to attend.

The Horse
Fun, charming and attractive sums up the Horse’s traits perfectly. They love parties and crowds and being the centre of attention. They can also be egotistical, hotheaded and impatient. The Horse is a considerate and protective friend and partner and when in his company, there will always be excitement around the next corner.
Forecast for 2010 The Year of the Tiger will be an exciting and lively year for the Horse. On the home and family front, there may be some changes with family members moving in, moving out or relocating to another location altogether. On the social front, the Horse will be in much demand with invitations to parties and gatherings increasing as the year moves on. Health wise, with such a busy year and added pressures, the Horse must ensure that he looks after his diet and gets adequate rest. Otherwise, irritability and heated arguments could arise unnecessarily. Those born under this sign will do exceptionally well career-wise this year. However, they must follow up leads and career openings with vigor in order to take advantage of the fast paced energy of the Tiger year. A word of caution for the Horse – they need to keep a careful eye on their finances as overspending could happen very easily. August through September will bring fantastic opportunities for those looking for love. March through May will be lucky for changing jobs or careers while November and December will bring fun and lively social gatherings.

The Goat
Graceful and optimistic, kind and easy going, would describe a Goat personality. They can also be petulant and discontented, likely to throw the towel in at the beginning of a problem. They can be charming without revealing their true feelings. The Goat is very talented and imaginative and can turn his hand to most creative pursuits.
Forecast for 2010 The Goat likes balance and moderation in all areas of life and the Year of the Tiger will ensure that he discovers new aspects and strengths of himself he didn’t know he had! For the artistic and creative Goat, 2010 will bring offers, opportunities and encouragement, leading to new projects and job offers. If they can remain adaptable, open to change and focused, this year could have long lasting positive implications. Study and developing specialist skills is also highlighted for this year. For those wishing to change jobs or find employment, there may be many frustrating moments and it won’t be easy. But then, out of the blue, a job offer or an opportunity will present itself. Be ready! September to November will bring the best chances for work related success. May to September will have outstanding moments for making new, special friends and enjoying the company of loved ones. All Goats need to be aware that the Year of the Tiger is not the time for taking financial risks. If in doubt or worried, they need to be sure to get the advice of a professional.
Interesting Goat Facts

Special Flower: Larkspur
Best Hours: 1-3 pm

The Monkey
The Monkey is playful, lively, fun and a quick thinker. They get bored very easily and find it hard to settle down to doing any one thing. The Monkey can also be vain and offhand. They are ambitious and usually very good with investing money. With their quick wit and wonderful sense of humour, they are a great party guest. The Monkey’s life will never be dull and predictable!
Forecast for 2010 The Monkey’s energetic nature will resonate well with the energy of 2010 – but he will definitely need to pace himself or he will burn out! Changes on the job front could startle the Monkey near the beginning of the year, but by adapting and staying calm, he should weather any storm. It would be wise to take a well-earned break mid-year as all Monkeys will be feeling the pressure that the Year of the Tiger is putting on them. Family expenses may very well increase this year and the wise Monkey will do a little bit of forward planning and budgeting to ensure a smooth passage through 2010. August to October will shine for romantic encounters and the unattached could possibly find the partner they’ve been searching for. July to November will be the best time to start making moves for anyone who wishes to change their job. All those born under this sign will appreciate the support they receive this year from loved ones and friends. Advice will be well-meaning and helpful; be sure to listen carefully.

The Rooster
The Rooster is always popular, extravagant and creative.. They can be brutally honest and generally like being showered with attention. They are wonderfully loyal friends and also give advice freely – whether they are asked for it or not! Family means the world to the Rooster and they are fiercely loyal to those they care about.
Forecast for 2010 The Year of the Tiger will have mixed fortunes for the Rooster, but by staying calm, observant and flexible, the Rooster will glide through 2010 coming out much wiser, stronger and with great success behind him. He will be in much demand for his sage advice and experience and, at work, this will come to the notice of his employer. Many will also decide to go back to college this year or completely change the direction of their career. Travel features quite strongly with the Rooster seeking out adventure, fun and new places to visit. A word of caution: all Roosters must ensure that they don’t overdo things – exhaustion and a depleted immune system will result if proper rest isn’t taken. Home life will bring many joys and will be seen as a cosy sanctuary throughout the year. The Spring months and November and December will be excellent for intimate romantic encounters.. March and July to October will be the optimum time for making career decisions or to change jobs.

The Dog
The Dog is wonderfully hard worker, a perfectionist and someone who loves the small details. He is also a bit anti-social, pessimistic and stubborn. They are one of the most honest and loyal signs of the Chinese zodiac and will always go to bat for a worthy cause. The Dog is a fantastic listener and his advice is usually very intuitive.
Forecast for 2010 The Year of the Tiger will be an excellent one for all Dogs with a significant improvement in fortune all year long. They must leave the past behind, for the Ox year was a challenging one, and look forward with optimism and determination. There will still be challenges this year for the Dog, as for all the signs, and it is important that he talk over any potential problems and worries rather than bottling them up. Socially, this is the Dog’s year to shine and many new strong friendships and alliances will be formed. The Year of the Tiger will see increased finances for the Dog with many receiving bonuses or even gifts throughout the year. However, it is important that he takes his time regarding financial matters, checking details and ensuring that he has read all the fine print. May to August will be very significant for single Dogs and all invitations should be carefully considered! September through November will have crucial career opportunities – don’t miss them! Recreational activities and hobbies will also feature strongly, with some able to turn their hobby into their career with great success.

The Pig
The Pig is an innocent, sweet and lovable personality. They can also be quite melancholy and over-sensitive. The Pig loves the company of others, and adores parties, gossip and chit chat. They are highly intelligent, but prefer to keep this side of their nature under wraps. The Pig does not care that much for money, but is one of the zodiac signs that is very lucky.
Forecast for 2010 The Pig loves activity and challenges and the Year of the Tiger will certainly provide this. There may be additional financial pressure on the Pig this year, but with prudent spending and consideration, this need not be a problem. The Pig is an open, friendly soul and very trusting, but this year he must be wary. It’s possible that gossip may prove too tempting or that he may listen to false advice, causing upset and trouble. Be guarded and careful this year! The Pig must ensure that he follows up all correspondence or financial dealings – to delay or overlook details will prove costly. Short, fun, unplanned trips will feature throughout the year and will be excellent for off-setting any stresses and pressure the Year of the Tiger may bring. Interest in spirituality and self-development will be to the fore and any opportunity to study and explore these should be taken. November to January will provide excellent opportunites for changing career direction or to find a new job. August to December will prove particularly social, with many fun occasions and opportunities to make new friends.

Hire, Lead, and Motivate Winning Sales Teams in Challenging Times

Because in challenging times, you NEED to keep your team focused and driven to succeed

Sales... ... the lifeblood of a company, a matter of "life and death", survival or extinction. Indeed, something that needs to be studied, applied and re-modified consistently.

Being an outstanding sales person and managing a sales team requires different sets of skills and attitudes altogether. Yet, many sales managers are not equipped with right tools to get better results from an otherwise talented sales team.

In fact, a 14-year worldwide research revealed that:

Less than 15% of superstar sales people succeed in managing others

Only 19% of effective new business developers are effective at maintaining long-term relationships with customers

60% of sales position failures are related to individuals with the wrong skills

Hence, this 2-day workshop shall equip sales leaders to:

Map winning sales strategies that will win more sales even in uncertain times

Hire the best fit sales people and make them perform their best for you

Provide inspiring leadership skills to boost morale and motivate your team

Monitor and expedite the sales pipelines for your teams

Coach and guide your team to greater success

received this from email...

Since all of us have ATM card(s), I would like to share this important news.
My friend saw a man at Novena MRT ATM trying to get all the receipts out of the ATM bin.
Please read the following message from a friend of mine, it's true. Please be careful, it's not a joke....

Be careful when u draw cash from ATM with receipt complete with your account number.

Please never throw the ATM receipt in the public bin even if u used to tear it into small pieces before throwing it away.

Today, just got a call from my sister that she had lost all her cash from her account. She threw the receipt into the bin provided at ATM recently.

Luckily, she only has $633/= in her account.

Not much of suspicious when she was left with $11/= because she thought it was her petrol GIRO payment, however, that's not true.. She only got to know it when the petrol company, Mobil cut-off the petrol card's transaction when she realized something is wrong.

After checking with the bank, she was told that now there is this syndicate who will pick up the ATM receipt & with their IT expert, they are able to draw out your money.

The bank will not be able to trace where these people had drawn the money & how they do it, don't ask me, even the bank can't answer it.

They can only advise you to report the case to the police for investigation.
My sister is the third victim in this month

Two Italian men get on a bus in London . They sit down and engage in animated conversation.

The lady sitting next to them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of them say the following:

'Emma comes First. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come once-a-more! Two asses; They come together again. I come again and pee twice. Then I come one lasta Time.'

The lady can't take this any more.
'You foul-mouthed sex-obsessed pig,' she retorted indignantly.'In this country, we don't speak aloud in public places about our sex lives.'

'Hey, coola down lady,' said the man. 'Who talkin' abouta sex? I'm a Justa tellin my frienda how to spell " MISSISSIPPI "

I bet you're gonna read this again!

Emma comes First = letter M
Den I come = letter I
Den two asses come together = 2 letters SS
I come once-a-more = letter I
Two asses; They come together again = 2 letters SS
I come again and pee twice = letter I and 2 letters PP
Then I come one lasta Time = letter I

therefore = MISSISSIPPI
