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.

For the sake of my knees screaming 'lose weight, please!', I'm going to try to lose weight.

"On any one day, you can massively change the direction of your life.” ~Jim Rohn


Member Since: 12/5/2010

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


My Program:
*Exercise commitment:
A combination of walking/hiking/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 61 and married for almost 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, 5 dogs - 3 cats, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but I can't afford to do it as often as I'd like to. And as of now, with COVID-19, I rather stay put in my home doing projects I enjoy.

    Hallelujah! It's Friday! What a blessing!
    Here are some funny church bulletin postings.

    Mrs. Jones remains in the hospital and needs blood donors for more transfusions.
    She also is having trouble sleeping and requests tapes of Pastor Nelson's sermons.

    The Choir director invites any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir.

    The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind.
    They may be seen in the church basement on Friday afternoon.

    Our new associate minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign
    slogan last Sunday: I upped my pledge - up yours!

    A new cookbook is being compiled by the ladies of the church.
    Please submit your favorite recipe with a short antidote for it.

    Ladies don't forget the rummage sale. It's a good chance to get rid
    of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don't forget your husbands.

    Tip of the day: How do they make holy water? They boil the hell out of it!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Happy Day to you Pat. Weather has been so crazy lately. Whatever the weather is make the best of it and enjoy the day! emoticon

    Take life day by day. Be grateful for the little things.
    Try not to stress over what you can’t control.
    If you must look back, do so forgivingly.
    If you must look forward, do so optimistically.
    However, the wisest thing you can do is
    BE IN THE PRESENT…..GRATEFULLY!"
