I live in a sauna

I’m lucky and unlucky at the same time. We don’t have formal air conditioning in the apartment, and when I say formal I mean there isn’t a thermostat and a giant generator-ish fan in the back yard. We have a clunky robot looking portable air conditioner in our well-sealed bed room. The timer went off in the middle of the night and I woke up thinking I was trapped in a heat box. Oh well. Its like living in a sauna, which is great for losing water weight! (Insert a bit of sarcasm) So, I like roughing it a little, and I can handle daily cold showers.

Let me declare this the summer of weight loss!

The perk to the official arrival of summer heat in ny is that I anticipate a drop in my appetite aside from the daily ice cream cravings. When it’s cold, I find myself wanting to nest and bundle up with blankets and macaroni and cheese or baked goods.

I got on the scale this morning which is at 272.5. Last week is was 275.5 and the week before that was 269.5.

I say leave the diet pills on the shelves and turn off the air conditioner!

I’m the same way. It’s easier for me to lose weight in the warmer weather than in the colder. Maybe it’s the body’s way of protecting itself from the cold?

i always get more inspired in warmer weather......thats when i can actually lose weight....in the winter i'm too busy stuffing pies and cookies in my face to be bothered.....though this fall and winter will be different this year. bc i have a loose goal of wearing a size 16 jean for my b-day which is Dec 4.

I struggle so much in Summer, its ridiculous. I eat oodles of ice-cream and drink loads of ginger beer and lemon lime bitters - and I don't even want to mention how horrible it is trying to exercise! I'm in the middle of winter at the moment, and enjoying every moment of the coldness!

I wish we were having a summer here in the UK - we're having the worst July in history apparently. I would have to go to the gym for a sauna!! Glad you're happy with the scales chick - it's all going well.
