Healthy living in Mexico

I'm Lis and I joined in 2008 needing to lose those last 10 pounds again. I'd lost 35 pounds in 2005, another 11 in 2006, gained some back and I was in the 141-145 range for a few years.
Late 2009 we moved to Mexico, the first year was ok but the last few years it has been a bit of a roller coaster, getting over 150 a few times but in January 2013 I found a way of eating that works for me and I am back around 135 since March 2013 and the focus has shifted to maintenance.

My favorite exercise is yoga and walking. Since moving to Mexico I also enjoy sea kayaking and pickle ball.

My Program:
The end of March 2005 I started the Michael Thurmond 6 week body make-over. Finally something worked! I lost 35 pounds in 5 months. Over the next 9 months I lost another 11, down to 134. That was hard to maintain.

Jan 2008 - The weight crept back up to 145 over the last 8 months - now it's time to lose those 10 pounds again.

July 2010 - went below 140 for the first time in over 3 years!!

November 2010 - I'm back up in my "comfy" range 141-145

January 2013 - gained a few (!) over the last years to 151 but back with the program!
February 2013 - back below 140 :)
March 31st 2013 - at goal! 135
July 2013 - 134, back to my old low and then DD came to visit for a few months..
Fall 2013: 140 goal to get to or below 135 again
February 2014: back on The Plan

Personal Information:
After living in beautiful SW Colorado, near Pagosa Springs for 13 years, we are now living in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico.
2009/2010 was our first winter in San Carlos - great to be out of the snow! It is a great place to live for most of the year and it is nice to visit Colorado for part of the summer.

emoticon Lis, for visiting my blog, "From 'Diet' to a 'Healthy Lifestyle' Reality." emoticon our focus is to be on optimal health over weight loss. If we let the scales defeat us, we are still on a diet!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Today and yesterday were big "get things done" days, as Sunday all my new furniture was delivered up to the new home. And today the electrician and plumber arrived, respectively, and the first hung all the fans, put up the security lights and other little odds and ends, and the plumber installed the faucet on the kitchen sink, and installed both sinks/faucets in each bathroom. So right now, other than not having a stove, we have everything in and working. The stove would have been in, but due to more mistakes than I even want to think about, we ended up with the wrong power cord, 3-prongs, whereas my new stove needed 4-prongs. So..... I have the right one in my car now, and will take it up after dropping off my kitty at the Vet's.

It's amazing to see the furniture in, carpets in, most of the window blinds are installed. But I can't put any furniture in front of any of the electrical plugs due to the final inspection hasn't been done yet.

Soon, soon - and I'll be moving in! WooHoo! Hugs, Eve

Lisa,
I am not belittling any of the other challenges associated with pursuing a healthy lifestyle, but recognizing triggers is the hardest part for me. I tend to "bury my feelings" in food instead of dealing with the issues in a healthy way.
I hope you are having a simply super day! Thanks for your support.
