Arrow doing good on my diet but need to exercise

I am so happy I have lost 45 pounds. I still have 15 more to go but today I did my BMI and it was 23.8 (Normal Range). When I started my diet my BMI was 30.5 (Obese Range). My goal BMI is 21.
I hope everyone is doing great. I have not been on this board in awhile.
I need to get back to exercising because I stopped it about 2 months ago. Living here in the Texas heat made me lose all my desire to excersise. It has been Over 100 degree weather for over 30 days straight.
Well I am back on here in need of suggestions on how to get motivated to get back on my treadmill again. Any Suggestions? Thanks

Re: doing good on my diet but need to exercise

Thanks Funnewife! I lost my weight by watching what I ate. I only eat healthy foods such as fruits, veggies and whole grains. I eat No junk food. I drink tons of water too. I do not eat after 6:30pm and that really seems to help alot. When I eat now I think about what my body needs, like do I need another serving of veggies or fruit or do I need a little more protein today. It is interesting because I am so aware now on what I eat.
I used to count my calories but I stopped that about 2 months ago (and exercising) but I think I will start counting my calories again. My weight loss has slowed down so I am sure I am eating to many calories.
I started my diet March 27 and at first my weight came off quickly but now it is harder to lose each pound. I just continue on my diet and if I lose just 4 pounds a month now I am still happy because the big chunk of weight is gone.
When my husband and I talked about how much weight I have lost so far he said" thats incredible if you think about it it is like you lost a coyote". He said "imagine yourself caring around a coyote". I thought "strange but true".

Well I am off to eat some broccoli and hummus as my afternoon snack. Good Luck to you Funnewife!
