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

I'm also a proud member of the Awesome A Team - 5% Challenges. They, my awesome partners and 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. If I don't put it into practice it's solely due to me ;-))

I am extremely happy I've found invaluable friends along this lifelong journey here at SP.

Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 59, married for 41 years. Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I'm a part time caregiver at home for my granddaughter 8, and her toddler brother 3. I'm also fully in charge of the well being of my elderly mom. 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 (pic taken about 7 years ago).


Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking -1 hour with my doggies & 1 hour with my walking buddies-, caring for my pets, 4 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.

    It’s Motivational Monday!
    The commitment to working toward your goal is up to you, but you know there will be times when you can’t do every little thing along the way. Sometimes you just have to be flexible, and commit to getting back on as soon as you can.
    Don't sweat the small stuff. just try again. A persistent drop of water will eventually fill up a whole bucket.
    Wishing you a great week with many small successes!

    I appreciate your support, but I'm not even close to goal. I regained over half the weight I lost and haven't been in maintenance for years.
