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.

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 62 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.

    hehehehe I am a emoticon we do so WELL together!! And yes, even apart so we'll enjoy you as we have you, but we know it's a wee bit. How did you enjoy being on the WINNING BEAR TEAM? I think the WORLD of Emily!! She's a SPITFIRE FOR SURAH!!

    This will be my first official week of 8 hours only at work, so Saturday 4 to 8, and Sunday 3 to 7 than NO WORK til the following Saturday LOL EARLY 9 to 1!! That's okay, I'll be waking up about 11 and almost done at work!! WOOHOO!! I need to see how I do, but we'll find out. I just have SO MUCH FUN with the customers and of course my coworkers. LOL They are so cute. The teens are rather mature compared to many. I m doing the foster grandmother program in the afternoons 3 times a week but it's easy cause it's online and only 2 hours and maybe 20 mins, some days it's shorter. The other day the kids would NOT NOT NOT settle down, usually they are so GOOD!! I spoke up "Kids,,," "What Grandma?" AND SILENCE! LOL I just nodded. That was plenty. Inside I was laughing so hard. But yeah you never show that!

    How did you do on the 5%? I LOVE that I got my 5% I DOUBT if I'll hit the 75%, but that's okay!! I have it that by Dec, I want to hit 155 which was my goal last year until we got the PANDEMIC SURPRISE!! How are things in Costa Rica? Is the vaccine available widely? I've had my 2 shots. Maine is doing quite well on that though it has a longgg ways to go!

    MANY HUGS!! Kibbles,,, Kibbles,, Kibbles,,,, ovah 2 the dawg kennel,,,, pick out your water bowl, dawggie bed,,,,,,,,
