I found spark in 2006, but didn't really truly discover all of it's power until a few months ago...

Now I am Done Being the FAT girl, FAT wife and FAT Mom.
I will eliminate my Emotional Eating.
I will overcome all the obstacles that thyroid problems have thrown my way.

I have tried over and over again in the past to lose this extra baggage (both physical and mental), but for some reason know that this time I am going to make it. I have 4 children and a wonderful stressful job that keep me busy, but finally I have made time for myself and exercise (KEY factor). I love the changes I have seen in myself lately: I feel healthier, more beautiful and stronger. I have lots of ups and downs and I do need friends to keep me on track...hope you will be one of them.

Steps to follow:
I. Rid my body of negative feelings, overcome the past.
II. Surrond myself with positive thoughts and people. Enjoy life!
III. Self-care is the solution: transforming my body, mind and spirit. Finding an intersection between structure and nurture: where I give myself the care I need while also setting healthy limits.

Personal Information:
My name is Sandy and I have been living in Costa Rica since 1980. I have been overweight since childhood gaining more and more each year. Although it has bothered me in the past, and I made several attempts to lose it, they weren't lifestyle changes, so it kept coming back.

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA. Came to Costa Rica as an exchange student. Married very young, 4 children (ages: 27, 25, 23 and 19...yes, I had them when I was waaaay too young!) who love the bed and breakfast too much to leave and a great job.

My 3 boys are black belts in karate and my husband is a karate referee. My daughter and I are their biggest fans!

Just got my master's degree in business with emphasis in upper management this year!!!

Beautiful Woman Award!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!
