it is harder to take when you're older, but also, if you have some extra weight on that also doesn't help acclimate to heat and humidity. your body has a harder time cooling off.
Exactly my problem :( vegging inside with A.C. until temps and humidity subside.

Is that a dig at me :duc

Sorry, that wasn't @ me I must have made a mistake :plbb

just stating the facts. i'm also heavier and older than i'd like to be... gardening is how i try to keep more exercise going.

our weather is going to be warm and sunny today, but then showers tonight and tomorrow then we're heading into cooler (mid-70s) weather for the rest of the week. i can imagine that should be heading over the pond eventually. :) i hope. :)

I’ve been trying to lose a few pounds…… we all know how that goes! I always have a snack after supper, have switched that for a cup of oolong tea. Have cut down on carbs too. 3 mornings in a row I weighed 139.6 pounds, down from 142 pounds. This morning I am at 138.6 !!! My goal is 135.

yes, it is a constant struggle for me. just too easy to eat too much when we're both good cooks and Mom is also usually cooking a few times a week for other people. a bunch of food got rehomed Monday which saved me a lot of temptation but i did have to finish off the taco salad/nachos/fixin's yesterday. we've not had anything like those around for a long time so they were really good for a change of pace. i've managed to peel off a few more extra lbs the past month, but i really should be about 10lbs lighter by now but i was going the wrong direction for most of May and June. as i am the one feeding my pie hole it is all my fault, but sure keeping a lot of temptations around is not helping...

i was moving rocks earlier in the week and that gave me a warning twinge in my back to take it easier so yesterday was a light day - a bit of exercise pushing the mower yesterday and that was enough. today i'll get out for a few hours weeding and puttering in the gardens and that will help.

From looking at a picture I've seen of you you could make a matchstick look fat.:popme on the other hand could do with losing a few tons

It’s only getting hotter and more humid around here. Chances of rain are under 10% though. Today’s high is 95F with a heat index of 106 and it’s only supposed to get hotter for the rest of the week. First real summer weather I think we’ve gotten here.

This is my old age middle age weight. Most of my life I struggled to gain weight, weighed 120 pounds and truly was skinny. I was getting uncomfortably close to 150 pounds.
150!!! That is my goal weight. Meaning I have A LOT of weight to lose :( 2020 and into 2021 I gained nearly all of what I had lost towards that goal. So starting over. "sigh"
