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 then a for few years it 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.

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.

Thanks for the comments on my blog, Lis. I was just talking with my SIL in Florida about stress (Ya, I'm back in Florida, got here last night) and he said each time you go through a stressful period in your life your system to handle it gets a little stronger. He is a doctor, so he should know, and this is by FAR the worst thing I have ever endured.

But..... on the bright side, I have had no facial swelling. That means my system must be getting pretty darn tough! I'll look on the positive side for this note -- Dino is getting much better. I am hoping that by July 30 when I fly home he will be well enough to drive me to the airport. Or at least be able to walk easily -- right now he's still in rehab, lost all the muscle in his legs after being bed-bound for 6 weeks.

Hugs, Eve

Wow! Liz, you sound busy and productive!

I hope that process is quick and painless for you!

When we finally decide to move ( if we can find another house) then I will be doing the same thing, but not a long distance move like yours I hope!

The summer is going well, we got Canada's Wonderland season's passes this year ( a theme park...roller coasters and such) instead of sending the kids to camp so I was there all day Sunday with 4 kids and it was exhausting and I did not even get to go on the rides b/c I had to look after the backpacks etc.

DS is going to play Lazerquest with a friend this afternoon and DD is going to Wonderland with a freind.

I am having a hard time getting any work done with them home...hard to focus when they are not home, nevermind when they ARE home....

I think it is because I need a holiday too.....

Take care !

Hi Lis -- my blog was incomplete, look at the last part. I had fixed it once and it looked like it was OK, but now I see when you looked at it, it was not complete. ?????

Hugs, E
