Dec 21, 2008

Guess I'd better update this page since so much has happened! I had a heart attack and went into heart failure on Nov 17th, had open heart surgery on Nov 24 (4 bypasses) and am going into 30 days post-op. The surgery was hell, it HURT, but it is getting better. My Cardiologist told me before the surgery that I had a 1 in 4 chance of living 4 more years without the surgery and a 97% chance of living 10 more YEARS WITH the surgery and my family & I liked those odds better, so here I am. I started Cardiac Rehab 2 weeks ago and this is a long, rough recovery!

My friends at Sparkpeople have been a God-send, I am so glad to know them and if you are new or this is your first time to visit my page=WELCOME!!!

My whole story summed up is this-I put off taking care of myself too long. I had many chances but went into denial and almost died because of it so now I am being forced to be more realistic and really get honest about this food addiction that I have had all of my life. It's tough, I like to eat and food has always been my "friend"(until it tried to kill me!) and I realized that it has never been anything but trouble for me!

For those of you that live around Northeast Arkansas, please visit the Northeast Arkansas Spark team page and join us! I know there are more than 7 people around here! LOL!!! Help me build this team and let's all help each other! Sparkpeople is a wonderful way of life and the BEST support group ever!

I look forward to meeting you and visiting with you! Until then-Merry Christmas and remember-Jesus is the reason for the Season!-Leslie

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today, August 23, you are likely to have a great deal of talent in not one, not two, but three distinct areas. Not everyone born on this date is likely to develop and exploit those talents to the fullest, or even know what they are. It is the rare individual who is able to pinpoint all three areas of interest and dedicate himself or herself to their evolution and growth. Each will demand a great deal of time and effort, and not everyone will be able to split his or her focus among all three. What is very likely is that everyone born on this date will be known for excelling in at least one key endeavor.

    Those who are able to develop all of their talents to the fullest will find that the world is their oyster, though at times it may be a tough one to swallow. Not everything is destined to go right at every moment, even for those born today who demonstrate the most potential.

    Today’s Virgo Horoscope: You will be instrumental in healing a rift between two parties, who, otherwise, work very well together.

    Hope your day is wonderful!

    When we feel the satisfaction of accomplishment we are motivated to take on new challenges. Knowing that the attention and resources we’ve channeled into a certain goal have brought us success gives us the confidence we need to take on more responsibilities. We also have a greater understanding of our own personal strengths, and that knowledge enables us to make good choices about the plans we make, the tasks we take on, and the new goals we wish to set for ourselves. We are ushered along by the momentum of our own success, and greater success naturally manifests as a result. Use today’s accomplishments to fuel you into action by taking on more endeavors, and you will enjoy still greater achievements.
