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, and over the years the weight 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 in the 134-139 range.
My favorite activities are yoga, pickleball, walking and sea kayaking.
August 2015 I started taking a Pilates class twice a week and I love it.
March 2016 I participated in a pickleball tournament and won the bronze in the 3.0 women's double and the silver in the 3.0 mixed doubles!
I have come a long way from the couch potato I used to be!!

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.

    Thank you for your recommendation on my feed, Lis. I found one to try and am keeping yours in mind. I just wish we could find some sample sizes.

    Guess where we spent Monday night? Pagosa Springs! It's beautiful there! I'd been through before, but I didn't appreciate nature's beauty as much then as I do now.

    We purchased a Jeep Grand Cherokee on July 1 and my husband seems to have a lot of pent-up desire to "go jeepin'!" So we went up 14 passes + repeated 2 of them ...so 16 passes total in the San Juans. Went up about 49,000+' when totaled up. It was fun, but the meeting oncoming vehicles on those narrow roads was a little nerve-wracking. I declined the "thrill"of driving our new car for the first time ---on those roads. Maybe next time -- but frankly, I doubt it! lol

    The flowers are just spectacular; we had perfect weather and I wish you still lived there! I would have stopped by to say "hello" since we've been SP friends for about 8-9 years!
    Hugs -- have a splendid day tomorrow!

    Lis,

    Next time you are in Tucson, if you want to send me a note we could meet for coffee or some such. I hope you get some cool Colorado weather. My neighbor is there now. When I spoke with her yesterday, she said she was sitting outside and it was 80°.
