Hello from Costa Rica!

I've found three constants in my journey to losing weight (not maintenance):
1. It's all up to you, nobody else.
2. Calories-in HAVE to be less than calories-out.
3. You have to suffer, but it's totally worth it.

Hello from Costa Rica!

I've found three constants in my journey to losing weight (not maintenance):
1. It's all up to you, nobody else.
2. Calories-in HAVE to be less than calories-out.

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). Aiming a more middle range BMI, I decided to go for 126 lbs which I reached (for a grand total of 19 lbs lost since I joined SP). 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 challenges. I was always procrastinating the big start.

I am extremely happy I've found invaluable friends along this lifelong journey here at SP. My dear mentor: Ramona, GODS TEMPLE.
