Wink 102 degrees outside and I am freezing!

OK, it is 102 degrees outside, 107 with the heat index and I am freezing in my office. My coworkers think that I am nuts! I am wearing my heavy sweater and I'm still cold. I went outside on my break just so I could warm up.

I am not complaining though. Not so long ago, these hot days were torture for me. I wonder how cold I will feel this winter??

I've been going through the "freezing" stages again. The daytime heat & humidity have been comfortable for me...I'm like a reptile right now. They seemed to lessen for a little while...now they're back with a vengeance this past week. A couple nights ago, I was shivering so bad...teeth clanking & all before bed that I had to raise the thermostat up to 78 from 75...& I put on a sweatshirt, sweatpants & socks before crawling in between the sheets & tucked the comforter in tightly around me. When my body goes goofy like this I feel like I'm living in the North Pole...not Florida.

What a lovely 'problem'. It's good to be at a weight where you aren't sweating every minute!

It's hot where I am too...the air is set at 77 - that and the ceiling fan - they are doing the trick.

As for winter....at least you can layer on the sweaters.

We have our home AC set to 78 and even that seems a bit cold but works at night Yeah I freeze in the office and trips outside definitely help.

OMG I'm cold at work ALL THE TIME. It seems like if it's below 80 I start to get chilly, unless it's really stuffy/humid. I used to be hot all the time, too.

It's been really hot here (outside Boston) lately and I think it's overwhelming the AC at my job, I'm not as freezing as usual this week, lol.

Someone asked me if it felt warmer inside today and I was like, I don't know, but I'm always cold. I do know that the lab I work in, which is entirely inside the building (no windows) has been getting warmer and warmer, and today I took pity on my co-worker and turned on the AC. Turns out it was up to 86 in there!

I'm SOOO SOOO GLAD that I can actually enjoy the hot summer weather now. Of course, winter sucks instead. And a lot of fall. And a lot of spring, for that matter. . .

It's the office air conditioning. At home, I can control the thermostat and make the temperature reasonable for all of us but at work, brrrrrrrr. It still beats being hot all the time though. I still have plenty of fat but I must have lost enough to have dropped some of the "coats" that I was wearing.

I have the office air conditioning problem too. I walk around in a polar fleece jacket at work. People think I'm nuts.

Yeah we have had to complain in the past that our office was set to nuclear winter lol. It was fixed though- there actually WAS something wrong with the thermostat in our office.

I freeze too. Use to I didn't even wear a jacket in the winter. But this summer I freeze. I have a blanket by my recliner and use it all the time. Hubby thinks I am crazy. But 78 in the house is too cold to me.

Time2lose...where "in the deep south" are you located? I'm in South Texas and it is hotter that H-E-double hockey sticks down here. Even when I was at my thinnest - 145lbs, I never complained about freezing in the summer time down here!!! LOL It has to feel nice to not be burning up all the time!

I'm cold all the time and it doesn't matter what weight I am at. It's been in the high 90s here this week, no AC at my house, and I am happy, happy, happy! The office, however, is another matter altogether (with the AC set at 75). One day recently I had on two sweaters, was wrapped in two blankets, and had on fingerless gloves. My boss joked later that I looked like a destitute homeless person.

I am in South Carolina. My car broke down on the way home from work and I warmed up. It really made me appreciate losing weight. There I was stuck in a car on the side of the road in 101 degree weather waiting to be picked up and I managed it fine. I would have been miserable at my highest weight.
