Come Join Me - We'll Make a Life of This

Last year was my third attempt at SparkPeople and I think it went really well. I lost nearly 40 pounds, ran my first 5k in nearly 20 years, and felt wonderful. Then came February. For some unknown reason, I died. I went into Sudden Cardiac Arrest in front of my whole family. Thanks to the grace of God, I was saved. My survival chances were less than 6%. All the right people were there and after being shocked 72 time in the ER, I'm alive today.

Last year was my third attempt at SparkPeople and I think it went really well. I lost nearly 40 pounds, ran my first 5k in nearly 20 years, and felt wonderful. Then came February. For some unknown reason, I died. I went into Sudden Cardiac Arrest in front of my whole family. Thanks to the grace of God, I was saved. My survival chances were less than 6%. All the right people were there and after being shocked 72 time in the ER, I'm alive today.

Thanks to SparkPeople, I was healthy going into that situation. My blood pressure was nice and low, blood levels normal, and my heart was clean as a whistle. Something electrical caused the Cardiac Arrest and to this day, doctors have no idea what caused it.

Anyhow...a few hospital visits later and after having a few shirts cut off of me from the paramedics, I think I'm getting closer to where I was. My weight has come back, but my spirit has strengthened. I know what life and death are about and I would like to prolong the previous as much as I'm allowed.

There are so many wonderful people here and I am fortunate to have built a great many friendships through SparkPeople. I'm looking forward to building more friendships and achieving more of those goals with all of my friends.

Great review on DC2! Now I'm at work all excited. Hope I can make it through the day without catching a cold *ahew* emoticon

Thank you for the comment on my blog. I have considered getting a punching bag but lack the space to have one right now. I think next time I will try the Fighters Uncaged game and see if that works for stress relief but I doubt it as it doesn't seem to track well with the Kinect (that could be due to the bad arrangement of my sensor and my living room space, my sensor is on the base of the TV not above it which I've been told makes it not work as well).

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my page! I actually haven't played my Kinect for a little while. I really need to get back into it. Maybe I will have to try Fruit Ninja.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my page.
To be honest I haven't been as active as I should be, time to step it up this week!
