That's about the amount that I have on my drums and it seems to work well

Proper way to adjust the rear drums is to keep increasing tension untill the wheel begins to drag when you try to spin it with the drum on and the parking brake off.
Agreed. The self adjuster rarely works properly in most cars and especially not in the Yaris. Is recommend adjusting every 6 months depending on how often and how hard you use your Yaris

A late update:

I adjusted the rear brakes manually, and it fixed the problem. They have returned to their previous feel. Also took the time to clear coat the shiny metal drums. Hopefully that clear will hold up over the long term against the rusty look.
