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.

Hi, Lisa,
Your support has been very precious to me. Thank you so much for taking time to read my blogs and leave comments to cheer me on. I really like what you wrote about numbers on the scale being data. That is just the way I need to think about them.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and that this coming week brings you lots of blessings.

You are such a faithful cheerleader ... and I appreciate your support very much! We're still having mild fall weather in CO (although temps fall at night to 20s, 30s), but the aspen leaves have all fallen here (probably not in lower elevations like Denver, Ft. C, etc.) And the snowy mountain tops are melting. It won't be long though before it's white.

I keep meaning to look up your locale in Mexico. Sounds like a perfect place!

Have a great weekend & keep up your dedicated healthy lifestyle.
Nancy

Hi Lis,

Thanks for commenting on my page!

Thanksgiving was good, I made pies with fresh Ontario apples. YUM!
I have not baked in so long, I had to dig out my rolling pin, but the kids helped. :-)

Glad to hear you are becoming a pro at pickelball now.

We are still looking for a car...DH likes to do his research! LOL


p.s I have a new look on my page! emoticon

Hi Lis,

How are you doing?

how are the Spanish lessons coming along?

I know how you felt in the beginning when you started your Spanish lessons, I have been doing an online course this week and my brain is tired! But it is good!

How is the pickel ball coming along?

So is THE PLAN cookbook out yet?
