Freezing…And It Is Only 50

September 23, 2012

So…this was the first “cold” weekend we’ve really had in NorthEast Ohio 

and yeah, I am paying for it. Apparently when you lose over 150 pounds you lose your insulation and wow am I losing it. I mean all weekend long I’ve been physically shivering and unable to get warm. I used to LOVE the cold weather and lived for weekends like this, around 50 degrees F with some rain. Yeah, I USED to love it but now I can seriously do without it. I guess it is a whole winter of space heaters, sweaters and big coats for me. Luckily I was able to pick up some new sweaters (that actually fit) for way cheat since I’m no longer a giant. I guess you gotta take the good with the bad. Sorry for ranting, thanks for reading.

Feeling Groov….er….COLD

July 20, 2012

The biggest side effect of losing weight that I’ve noticed is that I am cold ALL THE TIME. I’ve read that sometimes this is because of your body going into “conversation mode” and basically slowing down your metabolism. I don’t think this is what is going on because I’m still losing weight at a  pretty good clip.

It’s really getting distracting, it is July 20/almost 21 and we just wrapped up, what I guess from news reports anyway, the worst heat wave ever. Right now it is around 70 degrees fahrenheit and I am wrapped up in a heavy comforter, after spending the day in my office with a space heater on. This sucks!

I’ve had the vents in my office taped up to keep them from blowing on me and almost broke down and wore gloves today while I typed. I am seriously hoping to get over it and adjust soon because honestly I’m simply not used to being cold. When I was bigger, I could walk outside in 20 degree temperatures in shorts and t-shirt and it wouldn’t bother me at all. Now I’m feeling a little chilly when its in the 80s. I guess sometime soon (like August) the wife, who is also cold all the time, will go sweater and winter coat shopping. I might even seriously consider moving someplace warmer just to avoid the cold, I really don’t like it anymore.
