Hello from Costa Rica! I'm a Costa Rican, living in Costa Rica.

I'm a proud member of the Awesome A Team - 5% Challenges.

My weight loss story:

For about 3 years, I was unable to get the motivation and determination (the big push) necessary to embrace and enjoy a complete change in my lifestyle seriously, until I got into the 5% challenges. I was always procrastinating the big start.

Thanks to the 2014 Summer 5% Challenge, I lost 5.4 pounds. And in the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge, I lost 4.6 pounds more and reached my goal weight (a total of 10 lbs lost).

I am extremely happy I've found invaluable friends along this lifelong journey here at SP.

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


Member Since: 12/5/2010

Fitness Minutes: 268,267

My Goals:
To have fun by sharing and accomplishing goals together with my SP friends in this lifelong health journey.

I reached my goal weight on Nov 8, 2014. My center weight is 130 pounds. The lifelong and so far difficult maintenance challenge continues.


My Program:
The Winter 5% Challenge 2018
-Exercise Commitment
A minimum of 60 m of exercise, walking/hiking/dancing, 6 days a week. This may include 30 min or more of yoga stretching and ST, 2 days a week.
-Nutrition Commitment
As for my diet, nothing specific but to eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to maintain or lose weight.



Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 59, married for 40 years. Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I'm a part time caregiver at home for my granddaughter 8, and her toddler brother almost 3. I'm also fully in charge of the well being of my elderly mom. She's currently living in an excellent elderly care facility which she loves.
My first SparkFriend in this page is my daughter and my granddaughter (pic taken about 7 years ago).


Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking, caring for my pets, 4 dogs - 3 cats, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but can't afford to do so as often as I'd like to.
I'm an atheist with total respect for people's beliefs.

    “Do yourself a favor, and realize that there’s no technique in the world that will save you. There are no pills, no secrets, no passwords on the path to greatness. You’ve got to embrace the pain, push the threshold, and feel the suck, and then you’ve got to muster the courage to go back six times a week.” ~ Jon Gilson

    Your write up about me on Valentine's Day was one the most wonderful things that anyone has ever said about me --- brings tears to my eyes. It was SO nice to be recognized and appreciated, truly. I can't thank you enough !!!!! I have had such wonderful comments on my home page since then ---- I finally looked for what you had said this morning (not driving the bus, so had time) and I am SOoooo touched. I can't thank you enough for that perk.
