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.

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.

    Happy Friday!! I noticed when looking at the grocery ads that June is designated as National Dairy Month. I thought it might be appropriate to start off the month with some milk jokes. I'll apolgize right now, because a couple of these are utterly ridiculous!

    Where do astronauts get their milk?
    From the Milky Way.

    What kind of milk comes from a pampered cow?
    Spoiled milk.

    I bought a can of evaporated milk, but when I opened it - it was empty.

    What kind of milk do yo get from a brown cow?
    Chocolate milk.

    What do you call a cow that won't give milk?
    A milk dud.

    What kind of milk do you get from a forgetful cow?
    Milk of Amnesia.

    I hope these jokes weren't too sour for you.

    Have a wonderful Friday, and a wonderful weekend!
