I never used to mind the heat like I do now. I know I'd be about 50% cooler if I didn't have to wear fat clothes...jeans, long, 3/4th. length shirts, etc. at work and running errands

Yes, I know I don't "have" too, but I don't want to scare everyone. Myself included:)

Yes the humidity is the worst! We get it here too but I'm sure not like the rest of you do!

I've always lived in California. When I was in 5th. grade my mom, brother and I had to take the train to Florida. When we got off in New Orleans it was like walking into a wet blanket or something. Having never experienced that before it was kind of freaky. Florida was the same. Luckily we stayed at a place with a pool.
I remember my mom just laying in the bathtub all the time:)

I wonder sometimes if it's not genetic. My mom was always a normal weight but she never could stand the heat.

Okay - I cam up[ with a complaint to add to the list. Even though I love summer, and the heat - I hate the humidity. I live in an area od Pa where we don't normally get a lot of humidity, but last week has been awful. It has either rained every day or the humidity was o high I was drenched in sweat just walking out to get the mail.
Today is one of those days. - so swimming pool here I come for a few hours.

I hope everyone else is fairing better.

Something I found last year:

"Hot weather is especially dangerous for those of us who carry around a lot of weight. An overweight person's body tends to hold onto more body heat than a normal weight person's does. Since we have more mass it makes it harder for our body to cool down."

Stay Cool!

It was really hot here over the weekend and it's going to start slowly cooling down. 94 today. So much better than 100-102.

I HATE, HATE, HATE summer. Did I mention that I HATE summer? I hate being sweaty all the time, feeling like I'm in a sauna even when I am sitting in front of a fan. I am a naturally warm blooded person anyway, and the summer time makes that 10 times worse. I loathe summer from May thru September, then from October thru April I am dreading summer coming back again.

It has been 104 degrees here for the last three days! I hate it. I have no energy and I admire those that can still work out in this heat. I feel like I have 3 winter coats on and just trying to do anything until the heat comes back down. My DH's plants have been wilting in the hot sun and some even fell over. Although, we have had some small baby zucchini today. I'm sorry. I hate it when it so hot that walking on the hot pavement comes up thru your shoes.

It's definitely summer here, too. Not to the tune of what some of you are describing...but hot and muggy anyway. So far we still have a bit of a breath of air circulating around, and it's been raining most days, which cools things off a little.

I look forward to fall, too. I don't know why...it only lasts a short time. It relieves that awful humidity though, which is the toughest part of the heat for me to bear.

And I'm very envious of those of you who have "real" winter. We get a few cold days. Sometimes even sequentially! You can't depend on it, though. A few days here and there interspersed with the usual heat. Or at least warm. There's something just Not Right about being in the pool or at the beach on Christmas! Isn't it supposed to be cold?!? jeeze

I work at a restaurant and our air conditioning broke today. It was 108 outside, and 86 Inside the restaurant....which is waaaaay too hot for a restaurant, people want to be in a nice cool environment so of course the customers were complaining....and I would say "do you want to come back here with us with the ovens?" and they would shut up, lol. Our boss went home and got some fans and brought them in. I was off at 3pm, I'm sure it was 90 in there by 5pm.

Also, I will be sheltering some bunnies this week since a shelter in my area was shut down and 52 bunnies were sent to another shelter that does not have room so they are all outside in the heat and one already died. I already have one bunny, so I'm going to take in some more for the week. Poor lil guys.

After reading all of these posts I just had to sit back and giggle. Aren't we just a wonderful bunch of happy campers? LOL!! I pity the fool who crosses our paths on a hot day. LOL!!

I drank so much water yesterday I was in the washroom like crazy, even twice in the middle o the night! It's a good thing, though. The day before I drank a load of water and DIDN'T need to go to the washroom, so I must've been just as dehydrated as I assumed. Oh water weight is so cruel. It just makes me feel like I'm failing. At least my clothes and the mirror say otherwise. Frankly who cares about those things, I want to see the scale go down! I need those numbers! LOL

Fans are blowing in every room, I'm dressed in light cotton, hair up, and no makeup. Who can wear makeup with it melts off? Bleh. Just think...July..then August..then ooooooooh the cool cool weather. Oh blisss.....

Hey All!!!

It's been a long time since I last posted, and this is a fun way to get back on the boards!

I have mixed opinions about the heat - I'm originally from Missouri and summer there is hot and HUMID - yuck! I hated it! You'd take three steps outside and be covered in sweat - it would just bead up all over my arms and my hair always felt gross - ugh. Now I live in Texas, land of the triple digit summers, but not nearly the humidity. Living with the heat is easier here, but also more dangerous. Heat stroke is much more prevalent because you can't feel the how overheated you are until you've passed out.

But, I am really happy to have access to an indoor pool here! Fun summer exercise without worrying about sunblock - yay!

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Who am I NOT to be?

I have never cared for the "HOT' weather much or the cold weather! I am visiting my sister in Montana and this week it went from Winter to Summer overnight! I have had to build a fire to keep myself warm since the middle of May. This is the first week when I didn't have to build a fire! Her house is so cold! One day Julie came home and said. I knew there would come a day that we would appreciate this cold house! It nearly hit a hundred and I finally said it!

I agree! Stay away from the scale! Limit that salt intake and stay cool!

Hey everybody .. Pa is good.. sorry for you all in the South and West!! I love fall and spring.. if we get that weather when we are supposed to.. I hate the heat too but its just not that bad if you have AC in the house and at work.. I don't mind not having it in my car most days .. but we haven't had 100 plus and here in PA when it gets going usually humidity is at 100% when it gets bad.. so we'll have ours soon enough. I will hide in my house then!

This thread made me laugh when I read the spark mail. If I come up with any complaints though, I will stop by and share them.

I don't even *own* a scale anymore.. Thankfully. I figured I would drag myself in to see the doc once a week and ask to weigh myself.. But I agree, the heat seems to make everyone short tempered. It has been storming on and off all day here, so maybe we will get a break from it in my neck of the woods :) I need to find my shoes and take one of the dogs for a walk while its not raining. Paco ( my chihuahua ) hates getting wet and Maya ( our Alaskan Malamute ) melts in the heat as much as I do LOL.. so I know I at least have sympathy from her *wink*

I think we're all experiencing some or all of the same symptoms.

For me, as long as I'm staying on track, business as usual, I know that once the temps come down that any excess water will leave too.

Avoiding excess salt and salty foods AND staying off the scale helps also.

Try remembering the saying, "trust the process".

I am hating the heat. It makes me so uncomfortable and I'm retaining water and my sandals are tight and my eyes are puffy and...ugh! And of course the scale is going UP instead of down even though I've not done anything wrong or strayed off course. Water weight. Anyone else have to deal with this? What are you doing to help it?

emoticon Dusty, THANKS SO MUCH for this therad. It made me so happy to see others are like me and I'm NOT ALONE. This heat is making me sick and tired and unhappy. When I do force myself to get in it. I get sick and tired and just want to go home and return to the AC and become a vegetable. that sits on the bottom drawer of the fridge and NOT MOVE and NOT TALK. When the phone rings i think STOP BOTHERING ME. emoticon

STOP STOP STOP I'm in Colorado and according to the Weather Forecasters we are expecting some relief today. But, their relief is in the low 90s and 80s and anything over 70 is TOO MUCH FOR ME. emoticon

Then, with the fear of skin cancer, what is the point of being in the sun??? Just take a pill to get my vitamin D.

I just keep saying to myself: "Fall will be here before you know it!"

My favorite time of the year:)


Yes I can pretty much stand the heat but add the humidity, and like you said, "Gak!" LOL!

Love this thread!! Here in Ohio it is just SO HOT. Gak. I hate summer :P It makes it very hard for me to get motivated to do *anything* outside at all. With a teeny tiny house, no room for exercise equipment inside either. Can I just hibernate thru this season until temperatures make sense again? LOL. Seriously though, Huzzah for the person who invented AC!

California's weather is so weird though....it was 70 degrees and raining on monday and it's supposed to be 104 tomorrow. When it was 112 here a couple weeks ago the ice machine at my work overheated and died so we had to go to the grocery store to buy ice to fill it (I work at a restaurant). The customers kept complaining that it was hot and I kept wanting to say "come back here where the ovens are!!". We were all dripping sweat and taking turns standing in the walk-in freezer. This weekend will be lovely...

Hey ladies and gents!
I had to laugh when I seen the title of this thread. So I live in Arkansas and my air conditioner is not working properly. Apparently we have a freon leak that the nice AC man told us would cost about 1200 dollars to fix! UGH! So I don't have that kind of money and we went weeks in 90+ weather without air. (I don't know how I survived) I was half tempted to lay on the floor with my dogs most of the time. A friend of ours came over to visit and he could not stand how hot our house was so he called the man to come and fill the freon (temporary fix) and just in time for the 103 degrees it was yesterday!! Thank goodness for good friends!

The body achieves what the mind believes.

I Hate Summer Heat & Humidity in Florida!!! Everyone wants to come to Florida in the summertime, are they crazy? I hate living in Florida June - Oct (some years through December) you won't find me outside until after dark unless I just have to...Sweating I don't mind so much, but I can not breathe in this heat & I feel like I could just internally combust at any minute. Praying for summer to hurry & be over & the weather once again to be under 70 degrees with a nice breeze.

We don't do a heat index here, so I won't even discuss that. Today we set a new all-time record for the day. It was 118 degrees ACTUAL temp. And we survived. I know you've probably heard it before, but it's a dry heat. We DO get some humidity for a couple weeks in July and a couple weeks in August normally, and those days are horrible, but the rest of the summer it's just hot. I don't consider it hot unless it's over 110--under that is just warm, and we have a slight breeze that blows nearly every day to help keep things comfortable. We just learn that in mid-afternoon (like from 2 or 3 p.m. until about 5 p.m.) it's time to stay in and take a siesta. Mornings and evenings are lovely. We did go out twice today--once to play bridge and once to go to a social event. It was hard to get into the hot car afterwards, but again, we survived. You know it's hot here when all the stores and businesses wrap the handles of their doors with several layers of bubble wrap so customers won't get burned. And the handles on all the shopping carts are wrapped up for the same reason. I just had to share our heat with all of you who THINK it's hot where you live. I almost never complain of the heat here. After all, I grew up and lived most of my life in Montana where it gets 22 below zero (ACTUAL temp). You don't have to shovel 118 degrees, and my car doesn't spin out of control on warm roads. I'll take the desert any day.

Do a little more, a little better, today than yesterday--a little more tomorrow than today.

HOT? HOT?? I'll give you hot. Yesterday it was 98 degrees with a heat index of 111 degrees. Today the high temperature was 101 degrees with a heat index of 115 degrees. I told my DH today that I can't believe that this is only June. We still have 3 more miserable months of miserable scortching heat to bear.

I HATE SUMMER....I HATE SUMMER....I HATE SUMMER!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
