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.

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 so much for asking about Baxter. I am a little behind. LOL. He is doing great and his pathology report came back good so his mast cell tumor is gone and didn't spread. Yay! Now he just has to survive the puppy. Thanks again for asking. =)

    Happy Friday! Since it’s Mother’s Day weekend, here’s are a few jokes I hope will make you giggle.


    A mother was teaching her three year old daughter The Lord's Prayer.
    For several evenings at bedtime, she repeated it after her mother.
    One night she said she was ready to solo.
    The mother listened with pride, as she carefully enunciated each word right up to the end...
    "And lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some e-mail, Amen."



    One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast to her brunette hair.
    She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mommy?"

    Her mother replied, "Well, every time you do something wrong and make me unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

    The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and said, "Mama, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"



    Q: What did mother broom say to the baby broom?

    A: It's time to go to sweep.


    Even though the toddler was having a furious tantrum, his mom was unfazed. “You may as well give up on the crying,” I heard her say as she led him to the store exit. “You’re stuck with me for 18 years.” —Sheila Custer

    Enjoy your weekend, and Happy Mother's Day if you are a mother.
