Hello from Costa Rica!
This is a Costa Rican, living in Costa Rica ;-))

I'm a happy member of the 5% Challenges (taking a full break) and recently, the BL Challenges. The amazing friends I've made through Spark Teams and the challenges keep me motivated. 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 wonderful information, excellent blogs, and superb tools but from these super organized fabulous challenges.
These challenges have made this lifelong difficult journey towards a healthier me, into a more joyful one.

Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 60 (what a milestone!) and married for 41 years (another milestone!). Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I'm a part time caregiver at home for my granddaughter almost 9, and her brother 3 1/2. I'm also fully in charge of the well being of my elderly mom unfortunately with advanced vascular dementia. She's currently living in an excellent elderly care facility which she loves.
My first SparkFriend in this page is my daughter and my granddaughter Desiree.


Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking, usually 2 hours, 1 with two of my doggies and another hour with the other 3 dogs; caring for my pets, 5 dogs - 3 cats, Sparking, 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.
