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

The wonderful friends I've made through Spark Teams 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 well-organized challenges (5%, BL, and BLC seasonal challenges).
These challenges have made this lifelong difficult journey towards a healthier me, into a more joyful one.

For the sake of my knees screaming 'lose weight, please!', I'm going to try to lose weight. Doctor's suggestion also.

Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 62 and married for 43 years. Three grown children that are already gone, and four precious grandkids. I help my DD with her two kids (she has a full-time job). I'm in charge of the well-being of my elderly mom with advanced vascular dementia, she's being cared for in a home.
My first SparkFriend on this page is my daughter and my granddaughter Desiree quite some time ago.

Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking, usually 1 to 2 hours, with walking buddies or doggies. I also enjoy caring for my pets, 3 dogs and 3 cats, knitting, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas when possible.
