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. Doctors suggestion also.

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


My Program:
*Exercise commitment:
A combination of walking, stretching yoga, and some ST for a total of 60 to 120 m every day from 5 to 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 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.


Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking, usually 1 to 2 hours, with walking buddies or 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 when possible.

    Thank you for reading my blog “Fitting in with Mother Nature or NOT”
    The power company does have regulations to protect the lake but only right on the shoreline.
    There was a LOT of local opposition even to that.
    There are warnings about the dangers of clearcutting, erosion, poisonous runoff and resulting damage but some do not care. Their freedom to do as they wish is more important than the well being of our shared environment.
