“Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but we wish we didn’t.” — Erica Jong

I came across this quote in my email and decided to share it with all of you. My entire life I have absorbed information about how to be healthy. I’ve read SHAPE since I was a teen and took physical education, nutrition, and psychology classes throughout high school and college. And yet I still acted like I didn’t know how to get to a healthy weight. As a teacher, I used to tell my students they needed to put on their “listening ears” while I taught. I have mine on now, but I also wonder how much differently my life would have been if I’d listened to the advice I got way back then instead of pretending I didn’t hear it.
