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.

Thanks for the link and the info on the veggie thingy. I showed DH, will see what happens!

What a weekend, busy and tiring but lovley. Yesterday I spent the afternoon with DD shopping and a trip to Starbucks while DH and DS were at the baseball game with the men.

Today we had my MIL with us most of the day and then went out for an early dinner. I had the thai coconut curry. Too salty. I prefer THE PLAN coconut sauce!

THinking of getting back on THE PLAN....

Did I tell you what happend with DH`s job?

Hope you have a great week ahead!

Thanks Lis. And I'm still busy -- I plan on scrubbing the entire home that is under construction before they lay tile and carpet. I'm afraid if I don't do it, no one will. We have a contact who actually works for the contractor and he is supposed to handle all the stuff not actually covered by the contractor (we pay him on the side) and he said something about having the house cleaned twice. Once I assumed would be before the floors were laid, and the other before we are ready to move in. But the cabinets are scheduled to be installed on Monday -- and nothing has been said to me about a "clean up crew" coming in. So I'm doing it.

One of my leaders on Daily Weigh In said she has done construction clean-up and the best thing is to take a vacuum cleaner to suck up all the fine dust from texture on the wall board, then I can wet mop the cement and if there is any build-up at all of texture in spots I can scrape it. It's still a heck of a job -- I know because I spent 2 hours doing it on Wed.

Take care -- and I'll try to, but you know what? Even with all that work, I'm not losing, I'm merely "maintaining." Bummer!

Hugs, Eve

Happy Dance on the veggie cutter! Can wait to see your blog and pics!


Interview went well, but he is not going to take the position.

Proud of him for taking the plunge though.
