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

After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a high LDL level and a low HDL, I decided to start a journey in search of a new healthier me.

I'm a happy member of the Awesome A Team - 5% Challenges. My brilliant partners and these 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 not only from SparkPeople's amazing information, excellent blogs, and superb tools, but from these organized great challenges. My team means much more to me than just competing, winning or not, losing weight or not. It's my favorite places to share, encourage and be encouraged by wonderful Spark friends.

I recently joined the BL Emerald Gems Team too. A new exciting and enriching adventure. Yeah!

These challenges have made this lifelong difficult journey towards a healthier me, into a fun, lighter but serious, shared, 'I CAN DO IT' journey.

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 2 dogs; 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.

    Did your H find any of the info about vertigo helpful? Yesterday saw my chiropractor who said to lay on my side, knees bend up. Then turn my head up as comfortable as I could, towards the ceiling. Focus my eyes on one spot. It does make the dizziness more so, but over time it'll help Don't do longer than 5 minutes

    Than turn to the other side and repeat. I'm not dizzy nearly as much. A little still, but can easily say it should be gone tomorrow or Saturday.
