Here in Texas, the natives, of which I am one, stay in where it's nice and cool. The crazy people who moved here from the north are the ones out jogging in the middle of the day. LOL!! Oh and today, it's 105!!

It gets up above 95 and it's to hot for people. Good lord how in the world do you stand it. I would be flaked out and looking for some oxygen. At work there is family in from Nigeria that asked if I had a coat. Referred them to a different department. When I wanted to say, "Seriously, are you kidding me, it's got to be 100 in the shade"

It's a little cooler here, which is such a blessing. It's been way too hot, with demotivates me to exercise. I don't do well in the heat. But today I went out and did a 6 mile bike ride. It felt great.

I hate the heat! It is always so hot and humid here in the summer. It makes everything harder and I can't stand being all sweaty all the time. We've been having record high temps here...the highest was 105! I can't stand those people who are all, "Oh, I just love the heat!" Yeah, ok. The people who usually say that never go outside and I have to do things outside a lot. I'd love to move some place where the summers are milder.

Our high today is supposed to be 99 with the humidity making it feel like 105. I love the summer and HATE being cold but this is a bit much. I'm drinking extra today to prepare for my after work bike ride and I'll have both of my water bottles full on the bike.

Yup--Michigan has been a miserable place to be for the last 3 days--temps in the high 90's with humidity about the same. I don't think our AC has been shut off since July 3. I'm much more a winter person I guess.

By the standards elsewhere in the nation, it's probably not that bad but I HATE the mid-to-upper 90s and high humidity we've had in my area of Michigan lately. I don't deal well with temperatures over 80*--hence the reason I live in a region prone to ice storms and heavy snows rather than someplace with more temperate winters.

I hate the heat! I sweat a lot and its really embarrassing. I don't mean in my underarms, in fact that isn't a problem at all. Its my head. Sweat will just roll down my face and my hair gets all wet. I don't know if its just because of my weight or if this is excessive but it makes my life miserable and I am certainly hoping that it eases as the weight comes off.

Well, Dusty we have made it to our 100 degree weather in Las Vegas. So, you have to exercise very early or late when the sun goes down. I'm not sure you ever get use to it entirely but I believe it is good to walk in it to acclimate yourself. emoticon

We have had beautiful weather here in Wi so far, well we did have a good week of high humidity but, that wasen't too bad. This past week has been beautiful. I really think that since I lost a good amount of weight that I handle the weather lots better.

I do not handle the heat well... :( It has plaugued me all my life. I have to remember to keep drinking all the time or I get dehydrated also. There are not any outdoor things I like to do at this time because the heat just chases me away.

This summer so far is not too bad but I am sure the worst is yet to come. Summers in Oklahoma are hot hot hot and humid and usually are the worst at the latter part of July and all of August. So, our time is comin. lol

RIGHT now, it's not so bad. They said today the humidity is supposed to stay around the 83% which is LOW for this time of year. However, starting tomorrow it's going to go back into it's jungle wet hell feeling. I wished I lived on the coast so we'd get breezes. But living in the middle of the country in the south just makes for stale, HOT, wet air that does nothing but breed mosquitoes. You can't workout outside, I don't have a treadmill, so that makes distance walking hard to do. I guess I could march in place for about an hour. I hope to get approved for financial assistance to the YMCA. :)

Although this thread is for biatching about the heat, I know exactly what you're talking about! One of my biggest things is, "why can't I just be normal?"

I really believe it's because eating is something we humans have to do.

I often think what would I think about if I wasn't always thinking (like you said), being "consumed" about food / eating?

Thank you! Let me be the first. I can deal with the weather. You can't change that. My biggest complaint that I can't seem to get over is--- seems like I waste all my time thinking of food. What am I going to eat, how much can I have, will I be satisfied, do I have enough vegetables, protein, too much sugar, too much fat hey is that real fat?, too much sodium, is that processed? Some days I'm just sick of it. I want it to come natural like sleeping.
I have broken some bad habits over the years, like smoking, biting my nails, all soda, real and sugar free, all artificial sweeteners. These things never enter my mind any more. I can drink moderately. Why? Why? can't I eat sensible without it being so consuming???
Thanks, I feel better now.

Never take orders from a cookie!! If you bite it write it!!

Your body is not screaming for more chemicals, your body is screaming for nutrition.

Do you hate the summer heat and humidity? Do you totally dread this time of year?

Trying to get all the things we want and need to get done during the day can make us angry, bitchy and all around miserable. Everything is just harder.

I know we're all working hard, losing the weight and exercising, but in the meantime use this thread to vent, commiserate, feel sorry for yourself, moan, groan and complain! (It's just us after all. What better place?:)

So drink your water, post all you want and look forward to this being the last summer you'll have to be dragging around all those extra pounds!
