Lost the Insulation

An unexpected change since weight loss is that I am often cold.  As I sit here typing right now, my hands are like ice cubes.  I have a throw in my lap at work most days.  I've "borrowed" the heating pad from CME's side of the bed and like it on my feet at night. I use to be the person who wouldn't wear a coat unless the temps were in the teens or less.  Now, I am cold.  I guess with the extra weight came extra insulation.  
"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14


  1. Hi Deedra
    I found that too. Since slimming down I always had to have a spare woolie or two at work, carry scarves and gloves almost everywhere and now actually like being near radiators (used to hate it as I went bright red and sweated like a hog!).
    However... I'm gradually finding that my internal thermostat is readjusting. The 'ooooh, I'm f-f-freezing!' moments are getting less as time goes by, so there is hope for a warm life ;-)
    Guess I've finally discovered what the heck people used to mean by 'wear layers'! Amazing, eh?

    1. I'm glad to hear that there's hope for my internal thermostat! And I know what you mean about wearing layers...never thought I'd see that day! :)
