Congrats on the new career! I submitted my letter of resignation this week and am counting down to my last day of December 17th and will begin school in January with Millis. It was a tough choice for me between Millis and Wilson, they both seem to be great places to not only get started, but also places to stick around for a long time!

Reading your posts and the responses of others has been a tremendous help...I'm excited to be joining such a wonderful community and profession with you!


Thanks, TXCoach, and likewise! This is a great community, and I'm glad you've joined. Congrats on your plans too! I've heard some good things about Millis, and what I've learned is that the important thing is to get started and stick around for a least a year with a company to get a solid work history going. You've got a great mentality in that regard.

What career are you transitioning out of?

Haya Matt;

It's in his bio/profile and also his 1st post in the diaries section, in case he doesn't see you tagged/quoted him. :)

Still looking forward to YOUR journey, good sir!

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Thanks, Anne! I was being a lazy librarian and hadn't looked in those places. I've seen his training diary entry now and replied on that thread. I need to remember to look at people's profiles too, in case they've filled them out.

And thanks! Things are progressing along for me. I've been winding things down at my current job, getting my apartment packed up, and just generally preparing for the "leap" in the next couple of weeks!
