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 stopping by my blog and commenting. I couldn't think of anything to write about and I like to blog 2 or 3 times per week, and as I'm here for a few weeks it became my subject -- plus I like to keep things on the POSITIVE side!
Hugs, Eve emoticon

Hi Lis,

Thanks for commenting on my page!

My DS is feeling better, just still coughing now! He managed to get over it without having to have antibiotics.

DD is still coughing but it is just an annoying cough that is hanging around!

Thanks for the compliment on the profile pic, I was about to go out to a 50th birthday party so had done my hair and make up etc.

It was nice to get out after being at home with sick kids all week.


I think they will both be good to go to school tomorrow! Then I can get back to my "to do" list!

I had to cancel or postpone 3 meetings last week. Ya just gotta go with the flow when kids are sick I suppose!

Today is grocery shopping day so I will go do that, it is above freezing today and the squirrels are out! they think it is spring?

You sound really busy , but really happy!

I am sure the Spanish lessons are helping to make you feel more at home, right?

Hi Lis, I know that I don't know a lot about arthritis although I kind of worry about getting psoriatic arthritis because I've had stiffening in my hands a little bit, but I've mainly been attributing that to actual physical traumas I've received the last few years. Long story, won't get into it. Anyway even though RA is genetic, so is Psoriasis. Both conditions cause inflammatory auto immune issues. The gut is about 70% of your immune system so therefore keeping it in proper running order is going to be the best bet. The theory is that the gut has thinned and is allowing toxins that are normally eliminated to get back into the blood and lymph system, overwhelming the liver and wreaking havoc everywhere, ie RA and Psoriasis. So in being able to create a diet that allows the body to naturally heal itself back to normal would then make the body be in a much better position to handle other inflammatory issues. This is my best understanding of it anyhow. Dr Pagano does include RA as being greatly helped by this diet which is based on both what to eat and also what not to eat. He explains everything very thoroughly in his book and I hope that you find a copy as I bet it would help her. It might be kind of hard to get through because it is focusing on all about psoriasis, but the general knowledge he provides plus some info about how RA relates could help her.

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. I see she has already discovered half the problem. I would suggest you tell her to read Healing Psoriasis by John O.A.Pagano. He believes that leaky gut is a base cause to arthritis as well as Psoriasis and she would benefit from following this type of diet. All it can do is improve her health. I highly recommend it.
