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

I'm a happy member of the 5% Challenges with the Awesome A Team. 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.

Member Since: 12/5/2010

My Goals:
To reach my normal BMI and stay there (the hard road of maintaining).

My Program:
*Exercise commitment:
A combination of walking/hiking/yoga stretching/pilates ST for a total of 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.

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 almost 42 years (another milestone!). Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I like to help with my DD with her two kids. I'm also fully in charge of the well being of my elderly mom unfortunately with advanced vascular dementia.
My first SparkFriend in 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 2 hours, with my walking buddies or my doggies. I also like to care for my pets, 5 dogs - 3 cats, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but can't afford to do it as often as I'd like to.
