Will I ever get used to the cold?!

Rate this Entry
When I was 255 pounds I was good in a hoodie on a freezing day in January.
I would sweat like crazy at any temp over 65.
Forget hot and humid days, I was soaked and dreaded leaving the air conditioning. I kept the a/c at 64 (it wouldn't go lower) all summer long.
This past summer I turned on the a/c maybe 4 times, each time for a day or two
Saved on my electric bill :-)
I love the fall. It just might be my favorite season. Now that I have lost all the weight I feel excited to get dressed. Wear jeans with a cute sweater. I love shopping now too.....but next time I go shopping I will be stocking up on themal leggins and tops to wear under my clothes
I can't get warm. As I write this I'm sitting on my deck, 57 and windy. I'm wearing sweatpants, a tank top with a zip up sweatshirt and MY WINTER COAT!
Last winter I wore 2 puffy winter coats, I look like a burnt marshmallow. I always wore thermal leggins under my pants. I was hoping this year would be better, that my body would adjust but noooooo.
I have no insulation. I think that being cold is better then sweating all the time, maybe this year I'll wear a blanket over my 2 coats

    When I was a teen I found a cool, down feather parka at a second hand store. I loved it! But I only got to wear it a few times that we'd go up to Big Bear and Arrowhead mountains, and on the several occasions temp got below 45* in Los Angeles.

    I haven't lost all my weight and I know exactly what you mean. Before moving back to CA I would have A/C blasting at 68* day and night in Austin, our electric bill was pretty high. I have been back to Austin about six weeks now temp is still up in the 90's some days over a 100*, I think this week may start going below 90*. My point is that my A/C has not gone below 78* these past six weeks, and that's me weighing 190lbs. Yikes! I wish I had that parka about now.

    Polypro is the way to go. Not thermal underwear.
    It's a first layer and then you add more.
    I am in Alaska I know what you mean.. I was cold before surgery and its getting worse'.
    This summer I slept with a fan on my head and electric blanket on my feet....they are freezing.along with my hands

    Who cares, you're thin and beautiful. Down vests and leggings are very fashionable!

    I understand the always cold feeling. It's a small price to pay for being thinner. While it won't help when you're out and about, a heated mattress pad is great. I think I use it about 10 months a year.

    I haven't reached this stage yet, although, at support group many who are same month or same poundage range as me..have. Does everyone get this cold chill? Hoping maybe I'll get a pass.
    Well layering is fashionable so rock on!
