I found spark in 2006, but didn't really truly discover all of it's power until a few months ago...

Now I am Done Being the FAT girl, FAT wife and FAT Mom.
I will eliminate my Emotional Eating.
I will overcome all the obstacles that thyroid problems have thrown my way.

I have tried over and over again in the past to lose this extra baggage (both physical and mental), but for some reason know that this time I am going to make it. I have 4 children and a wonderful stressful job that keep me busy, but finally I have made time for myself and exercise (KEY factor). I love the changes I have seen in myself lately: I feel healthier, more beautiful and stronger. I have lots of ups and downs and I do need friends to keep me on track...hope you will be one of them.

Steps to follow:
I. Rid my body of negative feelings, overcome the past.
II. Surrond myself with positive thoughts and people. Enjoy life!
III. Self-care is the solution: transforming my body, mind and spirit. Finding an intersection between structure and nurture: where I give myself the care I need while also setting healthy limits.

Personal Information:
My name is Sandy and I have been living in Costa Rica since 1980. I have been overweight since childhood gaining more and more each year. Although it has bothered me in the past, and I made several attempts to lose it, they weren't lifestyle changes, so it kept coming back.

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA. Came to Costa Rica as an exchange student. Married very young, 4 children (ages: 27, 25, 23 and 19...yes, I had them when I was waaaay too young!) who love the bed and breakfast too much to leave and a great job.

My 3 boys are black belts in karate and my husband is a karate referee. My daughter and I are their biggest fans!

Just got my master's degree in business with emphasis in upper management this year!!!
