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

Congrats on completing your Spanish lessons! wow! Well done!

It has been milder these few days, with temps around 4 C.

Snow is melting slowly.

I got my first AUDIO book from the library and am reading (listening really) to it while I knit at night. It took a little bit of getting used to, but it is nice now!

Busy weekend here, kids had their Christmas musical and they did SOOOOO well! DD had a major part in the play!

I feel like I need a day to recover from the weekend! Had to go to a function last night too ( for work).

Off to do my 2015 Portraits of Giving interview this morning, # 2 of 10!

The kids will be off next week. I have not done any Christmas baking this year....too tempting to eat it. Maybe I will when the kids are home and they can help me bake etc.

My friend is on vacation in Mexico right now. :-)

Take care and KEEP IN TOUCH!

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in lifeó
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.
Have a wonderful and bless day emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just got back this week from vacay. Hawaii was great. A bit cold but still relaxing. I Hope you also had a great Thanksgiving. I am hoping to lose those final few pounds during my two weeks off from work. My company shuts down between Christmas and New Years. So lots of time to hit the gym.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and new Year.

Hi Lis

Well the snow all melted there for a while and today we got a big dump of it again! I shovelled three times! I should log it! LOL

Anyway I hope you are well and that all is well at your end?
