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, and over the years the weight 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 in the 134-139 range.

My favorite activities are yoga, pickle ball, walking and sea kayaking. August 2015 I started taking a Pilates class twice a week and I am learning to love it.

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.

It is 2016 and I just celebrated my 45 birthday! In many ways it is good and bad to get older. The great thing is I am less worried about what other people think but more worried about how I feel about myself. I know gaining weight is hard for all of us but why does it have to be sooo much harder as we age. As the saying goes Youth is wasted on the young. In my case if I knew I would be thin for such a short time in my life I would have enjoyed it way more!

But here's to a new year, full of new challenges and hopefully many successes.

Cheers,

MJ-

I borrowed this from another Sparker (SHARON10002), and decided to share with my SparkFriends as these are great thoughts for February:

F - Forge ahead no matter how small the step.
E - Each new day offers the chance to start anew.
B - Believe in yourself and all that you are, and wish to be.
R - Remember the reason why you started this journey.
U - Unless you move, the place where you are is the place you will always be.
A - A bad day is only as bad as you let it be.
R - Roll with life's punches, and rise again.
Y - You are loved . . .

LOL, I guess we do like the same thing! :-)

Your Pikelball tournament looked like a whole load of fun?
