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.

Absolutely! Maintenance means keeping doing what we did to get where we needed to be. The next BLC will start in January. I will let you know when they start sign-ups for it. They have a team they use for sign-ups and to get the people ready for the challenge. It is a good trial. There is a lot of paper work to the challenge. But it is worth it! Have a great day.

Thank you for the blog visit. You are correct. The question was an excellent tool to my journey. Have you ever done the BLC? They lead us to do that type of check a lot. I am really enjoying the journey. HUGS!

Hi Lis, I must say that now what I am employed and earning money for my writing I am LOVING being at home. I find I am more focused when the house is tidy so I am motivated each day to keep it in order. Okay so when the kids come home it all goes to wrack and ruin...LOL
I am loving my work and am doing an HTML course near the end of the week. It is Thanksgiving weekend this weekend so a long weekend. Um, I should have thought of that when I booked the course! Oh well! It will be fun!

My kittens are growing so fast and such a pleasure to have as company while I am home!

I am making Broccoli soup this week, got everything in bulk yesterday, just have to get onion and coconut milk. I will get that tonight while DD is at piano lessons.

I am glad to hear your weather is still nice! We can put our shorts away now. High of 11C today.

Yeah, I allow dark chocolate as well, up to two minis. But I am not even having that right now. I have to get to a point where I feel like I can have it without it making me want something more. Thanks for visiting my blog and telling what "that" goes in you "fill in the blank". emoticon
