Have a safe trip, Kay. Enjoy your visit. I just went to see my parents last week. They live in VA. It was a comfortable weather week ... not to hot and some rain to keep the humidity at bay.

Hey
Yes Georgia is very hot and humid especially in the summer. I am originally from san Francisco California and the weather is much different over there. But i just take it as it comes and do most of my exercise inside my apartment. Doin good though down 15lbs, losing inches and building muscle. :D

Yes, it can be really hot in Georgia. I am drinking at least 7 cups of water per day. I really need to increase my water intake. I am doing a fitness challenge right now and I did better than I expected for the first week. Today is the start of the second week. I am going to try harder this week.

I'm so glad you had such a good time! I love going to new places and experiencing the joy and beauty.

You know, that's how I learned my way around my new area when I first moved to GA 10 years ago. I took up letterboxing as a hobby. I'd print off the clues to the letterbox, map out the area and drive to the place and set out to find the letterbox. In the end, I'd found a new place that I'd never been to, enjoyed a new park or garden or cemetery or whatever and found a lovely letterbox. It was a perfect way to learn the area and have a great time!

Same here, Lori. My friend lives in Chatsworth and she emailed to tell me it was coming my way. It was already here (Austell) and it stayed and stayed. I loved every minute of it. Of course, I was in the den watching out the window down through the woods so I had a nice view.

Hoping if we have one this afternoon that it holds off again until I get home. I have to stop after work and get my mammogram. I would rather not drive in it. LOL! Yes, let's order our thunderstorms. I'm hoping that works for me. emoticon

I lived in Oregon for 40 years...my husband said he wanted to move somewhere with less rain. He owns his own company, so we moved it here. Now I tease him that he shouldn't say he moved here for less rain, but rather more sunshine! It rains here more than Oregon! The difference??? In Oregon the rainy season starts one day in October and the sky never clears until one day in June (with an occasional, rare really, day of sunshine in February or May) :))

I tell my Oregon friends that I didn't learn to use an umbrella until I moved here! There we just walk in the rain, here its drenching... dumps a bunch of water, and then its sunny again! We love it!

We moved to GA in 2006. I learned quite quickly to always have an umbrella in my car every 365 days of the year because sometimes you never know when you'll need it. :-o

Good for you! I walked earlier this morning too. It's looking like it's going to storm anytime now. I stopped at the grocery store after church and thought I might get caught in it but made it home first. I love GA ... you'd better have an umbrella handy this time of year! :)

What a coincidence that we're tlkg about Farmers Markets..... I met a very nice young woman yesterday at work who shared with me that she's been juicing using fruits & veggies from a local Farmers Market. She has already lost 30-something lbs from doing this (plus exercise).
She said she wants to lose her post baby weight and get in shape to enter a bikini contest this summer. :-)

I had never been to a Farmers Market until last year. Now I go every Saturday morning. The produce is so much fresher. And I really enjoy knowing the farmers I'm buying from. They'll answer my questions and we share about our lives. I also learn from the people buying at their stands how to prepare some foods I've never known how to cook so I had never purchased before. And I'm able to share what I know. Some farmers have produce you can taste to see if you like before you buy ... I really like that! It's a wonderful experience!

O I heard about the Marietta Farmers Market. Need to try it out. There is also a new on on 575 at the Atlanta Outlet Mall Exit 9. It is on Tuesday afternoon. Need to check it out.

I have my face like flint focused on the goal of losing weight and being healthy. I believe God led me to Spark People and with His strength and the mentoring of this website I will reach my goal.

I heard that this morning too on my way to work. It's such a beautiful day! Hard to believe it's a Code Orange day! But, I'll heed the warning! Did 7,000 steps while I was on a conference call. The folks outside the window of the conference room made fun, but it was all in good humor! :)

It's a beautiful weekend! Went to the farmers market this morning and had such a good time. The summer veggies are beginning to show up and I love it!

I believe our Georgia Weather is about to turn and it is going to be beautiful for a while. Had many days of sunshine and expecting more. Georgia is beautiful when it wants to be. Love it.

HI I've been part of Spark People for a number of years but haven't participated in awhile. I started a new diet and hope to jump back in.

So glad to see you didn't let the rainy day difficulties stop you from working towards your goal(s). That's awesome ! I tend to feel a bit achy when I get really cold but I just bundle up and go for my walk anyway. Although, I will say that I will stay inside when there is lightening

The rainy weather has been quite challenging for me, difficult to get up a go but I forced myself to complete exercise daily…so far

I absolutely love this crazy weather we've been having ( even though my hair hates it, Lol ).
It enables me to wear a variety of outfits and shoes from my closet instead of "storing them for a specific season". Heh heh
Yesterday was beautiful, so I wore one of my new summer maxi skirts w/a tank top. Today, I get to wear my cute little rain jacket.
I was a Gate Guard in Calif. at our last AFB before moving out here to RAFB. After having to work outside everyday, I became acclimated to whatever the weather may be.

Mauvebear3, that is really awesome that you've managed to maintain your weight loss while recuperating. Hope you get great news from the doc. The weather has been the craziest I've experienced in the 8 years I've been in NE GA. Yes, we are supposed to get better weather this w/e but Glenn Burns said tonight there may be another freeze next week. Go Away Winter!! emoticon

This weather is so crazy! It has been cold, wet, and rainy for the last week! Looks like we are in for warmer weather this weekend. I see the doctor tomorrow for an assessment for my ankle. The last visit a month ago, he said I could still not put any weight on the ankle-hoping for better news this time around. I would really like to start physical therapy and build up some strength-I miss walking and, being a dog walker, it has really taken a toll on my usual exercise-have had to find workouts with limited mobility-thank goodness for Sparkpeople- they have a whole section on workouts for just such a situation. I especially happy to have found that section, as I had finally lost 28 pounds ( still have a ways to go) when I had my accident and since weighing in for my Spring Challenge, I found I had stayed pretty steady at that weight. I was glad to see no significant gain. So at least when I can finally put weight on the foot and do more of my walking, working, and the gym I will not be starting at square one.

Hope everyone is doing well and remembering to take a few minutes to count your blessings and be good to yourselves! emoticon

What a beautiful day in NE GA! Hard to believe we had snow on the ground Thursday night.

Mauvebear3, Hope your ankle is healing quickly. That sounds really painful. Yes, we finally thawed out by Wednesday pm. The warmer temps and the heavy rains did miracles on the snow and ice. Being from So Ga originally (Albany) adapting to being snow bound is a little hard to digest. The power crews, road crews, fire and emergency crews all over Georgia deserve a "hat's off" to all of them. That includes the Carolina guys also; even though we live in Georgia our power comes from a NC EMC and the only time our power went out was at 3:00am while NC was being slammed and our power company had us back on b4 daylight. KUDOS to all of them!

Sorry to hear about the snow mess-Hope this past week was a little better and you are looking at much better this weekend. I'm here in Peachtree City and we had a decent week except for the thunderstorm that blew through here. But at least it was better than iced roads and falling tree limbs and debris.

I guess my dislocated ankle has been a blessing as far as I have not had to venture outside for the last month except for the doctor's appointments and surgery. I really feel for our emergency crews that have no choice but have responded well whether for outages, accidents, or personal medical attention wherever needed. It cannot have been easy to have so many days to stay at the top of their game and be ready to assist us as needed.

I live in Sky Valley. I am so over this snow! The road into my subdivision is still a mess. My car still can't come out of the garage so I am at the mercy of DH. His jeep couldn't even make it up our road Fri evening when we got home. He had to get out in dress shoes and clothes and use the winch to pull us up. This morning, there is still too much packed ice and snow on the road. I pray it pours down rain tonight and temps are above freezing maybe that will help thaw it out!

Finally a forecast for warmer weather this week. I'm still housebound since my surgery for my dislocated/fractured ankle but at least I will have good weather for the drs. appt on Thursday. I'm just 4 weeks into the forecasted 8-10 week recovery time. That does not include physical therapy but will find out more at the next appt. I'm doing all I can in the sitting and prone position for exercise and trying to keep the tendons and muscles of the left ankle/leg from tightening or shortening up. Really glad I finally got a laptop-my ankle does not do well without full support for any great length of time.

Stuck in here today, I live in Decatur. This has been a mess because of dangerous ice, don't let them Yankees fool you into thinking this is just crying over snow! ;-) But seriously, everyone continue to be safe. It's going to get cold again tonight and the roads can re-freeze.

No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping the people on the couch!

I'm up here in the furthest NE corner of GA. Glad we weren't supposed to get snow per all the Atlanta weather folks. It got bad enough we had to close early and got stuck in traffic because of 3 wrecks ahead of us and 2 jack knifed tractor trailers behind us. Thank Heaven for 2 DOT trucks who rescued us.
