Hello from Costa Rica! I'm a Costa Rican, living in Costa Rica.
I'm a proud member of the Awesome A Team of the 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.
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 very difficult, maintenance challenge has begun.
2016 Fall 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment
A minimum of 60 m of exercise, walking/hiking/other, 6 days a week. This may include 30 min of stretching and ST, 2 to 3 days a week.
As for my diet, nothing specific but to eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to maintain or lose weight.
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). Married for 39 years. Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I'm currently working as a caregiver at home for my granddaughter 6, and her baby brother 16 months old.
My first SparkFriend in this page is my daughter and my granddaughter (pic taken about 5 years ago).
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of exercising, 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.

|73 Days until: End of Full Time Baby Care
Hi my friend. An apple pie is cooking in my oven and soon will be a nice turkey breast. I am making my Thanksgiving dinner today because I want to take hubby a plate tomorrow. I have a delivery guy coming to bring the last peace of equipment needed to bring hubby home. Monday after the holiday I will call the people about his care takers. There are forms that have to be signed by doctors saying hubby needs a care taker and than he is coming home. May only take about two weeks or so. Looks like he will be home before the year ends.
Hope all is well with you and yours

H for harvest stored away, home, and hearth and holiday.
A for autumn’s frosty art, and abundance in the heart.
N for neighbors and November, nice things, and new things to share together.
K for kitchen, kettle’s croon, with kith and kin expected soon.
S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that abounds.
That spells THANKS – for joy in living,
And wishing you a jolly good Thanksgiving!
