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 Lis, well we went to see the house again with our construction guy and we think there is too much work to do to justify the price, and even if they lower the price, looks like there may be some headaches along the way.

Oh well, we will just keep an eye on the market for a while.

You can uncross your fingers now! :-)

Thanks for thinking of us!

I hope to get my vegetti soon! Can't wait!

To answer your question, yes and no.

Yes we will be closer to some family, but further away from others. It is a big city though so that can't be helped!


A fresh start is not a bad thing either.

It is further away from my doctor and community, but I am sure I will make new connections easily.

We will see, it may be too much money to fix it up, but the construction guy we are taking with us will give us a better idea! If not, then we will wait it out until next summer and see what comes up.

I'll keep you posted.

Our weather here is almost always perfect. That is why we chose this part of Mexico..never hot and humid. Mostly 75-80. We do not have heat or air conditioning in our casas. Geez with the electric in Mexico being so expensive it would be a big bill to pay for air conditioning.
