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 then a for few years it crept up, 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 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
September 2014: new low 133

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. Summer 2014 we didn't go north and had a wonderful time staying in Mexico and even experiencing a hurricane.

Thanks for your support, Lis -- for me it is great fun to use words to motivate or point out certain facts.

Like for today I wrote: "There are lots of ways to be active, but being in control of the remote isn't one of them." lol

Hope it's a great end-of-the-month day for you! You are emoticon

Hi Lis -- I can surely relate to your comments on my restaurant blog. It is how I gained weight in the first place, many years ago. I gained 25 pounds without even trying!

On track now though, and much smarter. And of course the older you get the harder to maintain, but I think I have it under control. I try not to eat out more than once a week, that's manageable for me.
