Summer or Winter?

What time of year do you think is harder to stay eating healthy and sticking to exercise, summer or winter? I always thought winter because of the holidays, parties and it being so cold, however I am beginning to think summer is harder. Between vacations, family visiting and the heat I am having a hard time staying on track. I have managed to exercise everyday so far this wee. This morning it was a struggle but I did get in 40 minutes on the treadmill. My eating has not been as good as I would like. I have not gone on any binges but I have gone out to eat quite a bit more then I should be. I just realized the wedding I am in is in less then a month and I have not lost as much as I would like to have, actually I am not sure if I lost any.

Summers aren't so hot here, so I find winter much harder - extreme weather conditions such as snow, rain, dense fog make outdoor exercise impossible and the long drive to the gym dangerous.

Seasonal viruses render me incapable and don't forget those special holidays and the winter blues colluding to make eating healthily a challenge.

Hope it cools down for you and good luck getting some weight off for the wedding!

Summers are so hard for me! After driving around in 110 degree heat, the last thing I wanna do is come home and stand over a hot stove or go out and exercise. I just can't WAIT for fall!

I found it harder to lose weight in the summer, but when I finally lost all my weight it took over a year so I had to diet throughout the whole year, and through all the seasons.

easier in the summer because it's so hot (southern cali) that you don't want to eat a lot of hot foods... hot foods = savory fatty foods. Instead to stay cool, I eat fruit or cereal.

Also in cali winters, they are mild, but still, I LOOOOOOVE snuggling and sitting in front of the tv doing NOTHING and MOVING NOTHING except my hand to grab the remote. LOL! great question.
