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

After recently being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a high LDL level and a low HDL, I decided I have to start a journey in search of a new healthier me. I'm now trying to do the best I can to change those results.

I'm a happy member of the Awesome A Team - 5% Challenges. My brilliant partners and these challenges keep me accountable at all times. Though I'm always in a constant battle with my weight, I can say I've learned what's good for my health and what works for me not only from SparkPeople's amazing information, excellent blogs, and superb tools, but from these organized great challenges. My team means much more to me than just competing, winning or not, losing weight or not. It's my favorite place to share, encourage and be encouraged by wonderful Spark friends.

This has made this lifelong difficult journey towards a healthier me, into a fun, lighter, 'I can do it' journey.
