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

I'm taking a long break from the amazing 5% Challenges. 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. Doctors suggestion also.

Member Since: 12/5/2010

My Goals:
To reach my normal BMI and stay there.

My Program:
*Exercise commitment:
A combination of walking/recumbent bike/yoga stretching/pilates ST for a total of 60 to 120 m every day at least 6 days a week.
*Nutrition Commitment
To eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to lose weight using SP.

Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 61 and married for 43 years. Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I like to help my DD with her two kids (she has a full time job). Though I'm in charge of the well being of my elderly mom with advanced vascular dementia, she's being cared for by my youngest son and his wife at their home.
My first SparkFriend on this page is my daughter and my granddaughter Desiree quite some time ago.

Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking, usually 1 to 2 hours, with my walking buddies or my doggies. I also like to care for my pets, 4 dogs - 3 cats, knitting, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but now, until further notice.

    This quote makes me smile as the governor of
    Wash. State in March told me I was old because of my age .

    Don’t feel obligated to act you age. Unknown

    CS Lewis Said β€œ You are never to old to set another goal and dream a new dream”

    Remember you can only take one hurdle at time
    Every day is the Best day and at the end of the day shark it off
    Happy Tuesday emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
