I started babysitting when I was 13 years old but if you want to know the first job I had where I had to file taxes, I was a senior in high school and I worked at a daycare facility, which was located in the school that I attended.

I was about 14 when I started keeping score for bowling leagues. It was more fun than babysitting and paid better.

When I was 12 my brothers and I would ride our bikes out to the country and pick blueberries. I also did baby sitting when I was 12.

My family owned a marine business (selling and repairing outboard motors and boats in the summer and chainsaws in the winter) -- I don't remember when I first started working there (for pay) as we lived in the same building in the apartment upstairs but it was probably about the same time as I started high school.

After Grade 11. I worked part-time at Eaton's to pay for my part-time secretarial school fees. That worked out beautifully--half day each. Before that the very odd babysitting job which I wasn't very good at. On one occasion, a four-year old instructed me on feeding her baby brother. Haha! To use one of my mother's many sayings: "She meant well." (me, in this case)...the closing statement on a criticism.

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

I was 17 and just graduated high school.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

One day I won't be able to do this, but today is not that day
