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