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. Doctors suggestion also.

"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 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, knitting, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but now, until further notice or a covid-19 vaccine to appear and be effective.

    Why were all the corn stalks afraid of the farmer's son, Jimmy?
    Because Jimmy cracks corn, and he don't care.

    What do you get if you cross an ear of corn with a cow?
    Corned beef.

    How much does a pirate pay for corn at the farmer's market?
    About a buccaneer.

    What do you get when a farm truck spills all of its corn on the freeway?
    Creamed corn.

    What did one ear of corn say to the other ear of corn?
    Don't look now, but I think the farmer is stalking us.

    Why should you be very careful of what you say on a farm?
    the corn has ears, the potatoes have eyes, and the beans stalk.

    Now why didn't you laugh at any of today's jokes? Oh, I know . . .
    they were too corny!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
