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.

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.

Hola,

My vegetti is in the mail ! AND I got $4 off and did not have to pay for shipping!
This all because the store did not have them in stock, to they are mailing one to me!

I will have to wait up to 2 weeks, but it will be worth it!

How is the second round of Spanish lessons going?

Hi, Lisa,
I really cannot take credit for my blogs about Spangle's 100DWL book. They are just summaries of what she writes in the daily motivational readings. I try to highlight what I find in them that is meaningful to me. I am so glad you are enjoying reading them and finding the information helpful. It helps me a whole lot to write about what she has to say.
I can't wait to read the next 50!
