Hello from Costa Rica! I'm a Costa Rican, living in Costa Rica.

I'm a proud member of the Awesome A Team - 5% Challenges.

My weight loss story:

For about 3 years, I was unable to get the motivation and determination (the big push) necessary to embrace and enjoy a complete change in my lifestyle seriously, until I got into the 5% challenges. I was always procrastinating the big start.

Thanks to the 2014 Summer 5% Challenge, I lost 5.4 pounds. And to the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge, I lost 4.6 pounds more and reached my goal weight (a total of 10 lbs lost).

I am extremely happy I've found invaluable friends along this lifelong journey here at SP.

Member Since: 12/5/2010

Fitness Minutes: 236,669

My Goals:
To have fun, sharing and accomplishing goals together with my SP friends in this lifelong health journey.

I reached my goal weight on Nov 8, 2014. My center weight is 128 pounds. The lifelong and so far difficult maintenance challenge continues.


My Program:
SPRING 5% Challenge 2017
-Exercise Commitment
A minimum of 60 m of exercise, walking/hiking/dancing, 6 days a week. This may include 30 min of yoga stretching and ST, 2 days a week.
-Nutrition Commitment
As for my diet, nothing specific but to eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to maintain or lose weight.



Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 58, married for 39 years. Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I'm currently working as a part time caregiver at home for my granddaughter 7, and her baby brother 20 months old.
My first SparkFriend in this page is my daughter and my granddaughter (pic taken about 5 years ago).


Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking for two hours, caring for my pets, 4 dogs - 4 cats, the Internet forums -SP, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but can't afford to do so as often as I'd like to.
I'm an atheist with total respect for people's beliefs.

    My grandfather was native to Michoacan, a Mexican state dominated by the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental. Michoacán has been the home of the Purhépecha Indians (more popularly known as the Tarascans).

    Yes. Central American Heritage from the Native (Indio) Peoples. My maternal grandfather's native tongue was the tribal tongue. Then, he learned to speak Spanish. English was his third language.
