down. Take time to draw some
deep breaths and relax before get-

20) You’re eager to move forward
with a new challenge that sudden-
ly dropped in your lap.
GEMINI (May 21 to June

resolved before you move ahead.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) Caution is still the watchword
as you move closer toward a deci-
sion about a new situation.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)

to enhance its prospects for suc-
cess.

September 22) That impatient
side of yours is looking to goad
you into moving before you’re
ready to take that big step. Stay
calm and cool.

October 22) A legal matter you
hoped could finally be settled
could be a pesky problem for a
while, until all the parties agree to
stop disagreeing with each other.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21) Partnerships —
personal or professional — which
began before the new year take on
new importance.

ates are firmly on your side, and
that persistent problem that has
caused you to delay some activi-
ties should soon be resolved.
CAPRICORN (December
22 to January 19) Favorable
changes continue to dominate,
and you should be responding
positively as they emerge.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18) A friend wants to
share a secret that could answer
some questions you’ve wondered
about for a long time.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20) Stay on your new
course despite so-called well-
meaning efforts to discourage you
from your path.

also a natural fat, but can cause
health risks if not eaten in mod-
eration. You’ll find saturated fats
mostly in animal products, such
as cheese and meat, but some
plant oils, like coconut and
palm, also contain saturated fats.
Holiday foods, which are often
loaded with butter, can be very
high in saturated fats. Trans fat
is most often found in processed
foods. Manufacturers produce it
and place it in foods to provide
long shelf life and good flavor.
Unless a label states “no trans
fats” expect to find them in
processed foods like baked
goods and crackers. Many state
and local governments have
passed laws requiring restau-
rants to eliminate trans fat from
menu items. Trans fat has been
linked to elevated LDL (bad)
cholesterol that can lead to heart
attack and stroke.
In general, people should look
for sources of unsaturated fat that
offer other nutritional benefits
such as those that contain omega-
3 or omega-6 fattty acids.
Minimize your intake of saturated
fats and avoid trans fats.

Unsaturated fat can be a


healthy part of your diet.

Craft a Slimmer You with Laser Liposuction
By Kelly Koepke©
Come January, losing weight is
one of the most popular resolu-

many, especially as we grow
older, getting rid of stubborn fat
deposits just doesn’t happen,
despite diets that leave us starving
and exercising like fiends.
Margaret S. from Rio Rancho
cannot stop telling people about
how she lost over 9 inches from
her neck and abdomen without
dieting, exercising or having sur-
gery. Her results came from a
technology new to New Mexico
— laser liposuction. The painless,
relaxing experience reduced her
neck and abdomen in about three
weeks with no side effects, no
dieting and no exercising.
“It was a great experience. I’m
50 years old and had trouble get-

wanting my abdomen done, but

Crossword Puzzle
noblewoman falls in love with a Persian Prince.
The cultural differences between the two young

adventurous historical romance set against
a breathtaking background with a delightful
female protagonist and an abundance of
intrigues.
Nuri Shafii, an Albuquerque IT consultant,
is a naturalized U.S. citizen. He was born
and raised in Persia (Iran) and educated in
the United States. He moved to the U.S. with
a suitcase full of his stories. This is his first

Tackle Your Remodel Project Now with Yourson
By Robin Martinez©
Jane Hotchkiss is one happy
lady. She recently won an “Ugly
Bath” contest. While most people
would be less than thrilled to win
such a designation, the prize — a
completely restored bathroom —
made the title easier for Jane to
bear.
The restoration, completed by
Yourson, Albuquerque’s leading
name in bathroom and kitchen
restoration, eliminated the rotting
wall, unsealed grout, failing tiles
and unsightly fixtures and shower

comfortable and safe for every-
day use, and has added value to
the Hotchkiss home.
In every problem lies an
opportunity. So it is with the
current real estate market.
