In which I am constantly cold

There is a downside to losing 100+ lbs - I am cold all the time.

This is unfortunate because I live in Massachusetts, where it is cold most of the time.

When I was overweight, I was always overheating: hot, sweaty, uncomfortable.

Now I'm constantly in need of another layer - and a nap, while we're at it. So perpetually sleepy and freezing, me in a nutshell.

I just changed out of my running clothes into outside yardwork-attire. So, that's, no lie, four shirts: long-sleeve long underwear top, long-sleeve cotton top, another larger long-sleeve cotton top, sweatshirt. And I will add a vest when we go outside.

Below the equator: long underwear pants and jeans. I feel like the Michelin Man. It's, like, 50 degrees out and windy, but it seems much colder than that to me.

It's a nice problem to have, don't get me wrong, I don't want to go back to being hot and fat, but it's not something I expected or predicted as an After.

  1. Agreed. Last winter, my hands were so cold at times, that it was painful. I carried around a portable heater to different meeting locations with me. Haha!

    That said, there are certainly worse problems to have and we know many people who would gladly switch places with us, so I try to keep that in mind.
