I was wondering if you sweat less since you've lost weight? I sweat so much that I hate doing anything. Just going to the grocery store I sweat a lot.

Your signature, Texas, will have something to do with that and if Nonie means grandma, that too will be a reason for sweating. I'm sweating like a fat girl in Alaska but it's age related.

Yes, Vintagecat, I am a grandmother, 53 years old. And yes, it is hot in the Texas Panhandle. That is why I love the cooler weather fall has brought.

Strangely I still sweat a lot but when I sweat is different.

I used to sweat a lot while walking up hill or doing household chores.

Now I sweat a lot when working out. And I mean a lot. Even with a headband on and wrist bands I will soak my t-shirt on the treadmill and will have sweat on the treadmill. So some of it is just genetic.

The timing and amount of my sweat resembles Ian's.

I sweat less when just getting on with my life. But boy, do I soak my padded gloves, my hair, the front of my shirt, my sports bra and my workout pants.

Sometimes I think I ought to wring out my sports bra over the bathroom sink before hanging it over the shower rod to dry out before I stuff it into a laundry bag.

One of the unexpected but great things about losing weight for me is how much better this past summer was. I live in Central Texas. Perhaps sweating a tad less. But heat and humdity were much less oppressive. My body handled it much better.

Sort of. Once I start sweating, I'm as drenched as I ever was. But daily life didn't make me sweat this summer like it used too - now it usually takes exertion to turn my sweat glands on.

I sweat wth exertion. General life is not nearly as exerting as it was 100 pounds ago :)

Yes, I have the feeling that I'm sweating less. But I guess this just a placebo effect... Nevertheless I feel better since I lost weight and that's what matters.

I don't sweat as much as I used to. Before I lost weight, I'd break out in a sweat just doing dishes! Now, it takes a lot more effort to start sweating. But when I do sweat, oh boy, do I sweat a lot!

I definitely sweat less in general (I often tend to be on the cold side now) and I am less likely to get over-heated while working out also. I love both of these side benefits, so much.

I am an oddball. I have never been a heavy sweater. (haha calling myself a sweater was funny, but I digress) But now that I've lost weight, I actually sweat MORE. Why? Because I drink water like it's going out of style, I think I must have spent the bulk of my life in a state of dehydration which I assume is why I didn't sweat a lot.

I wish, haha. I sweat about the same.

Oh wow, I never thought about that. I do drink A LOT of water and I seem to be the only one at the gym with a water bottle… and sweating buckets.

When I exercise, I am sweating *a lot* more. Outside of exercise, I'm more inclined to be cold than hot.

I have never handled spicy or hot food all that well but lately, when I eat anything remotely spicy or hot, I sweat like I'm exercising. It is terribly embarrassing. Not sure if it's due to my weight loss, age, or whatever. It sucks.

I'm pretty sure that I will always sweat, no matter what!
I think sometimes I simply think about going running and I'm already getting sticky!
I'm sure it gets a little less when you lose weight but a lot of it is just who you are!

I'm with the few that have been colder since I've lost weight. I sweat a little when exercising, otherwise not at all. I find myself colder in situations that others are comfortable or hot in. It's pretty weird, actually. I literally my fat blankie. :dizzy:

I sweat with exercise, but I recover a lot more quickly, now. My head and face sweat a lot -- but that was always the case. I think it's healthy to sweat; it's your body's cooling mechanism. So, I'd worry if I didn't sweat. Plus, having lived a lifetime in Texas, it's pretty much the natural state of things here 3/4 of the year!

I believe it's genetics combined with what's your fitness state, your age and what you are doing at the moment. I've always sweat more than others in my age group and that comes from my dad's genes. I find I sweat more doing something physically straining against something that's not. And I also noticed years ago that when I lost that ten pounds I didn't sweat that much because I didn't have to carry all that weight around just to go to the grocery store.

I've never really sweat much BUT having just regained my weight during pregnancy, I do tend to sweat more if I'm say standing in the sun really baking away. But I don't sweat with normal exertion. I do sweat when I workout though.im actual such a light sweater I don't need deodorant, even before a workout! But I still apply it anyway. DH is the same way, he does not smell like BO after a workout or if he's skipped deodorant. My parents are not sweaty people and my grandmother actually has some issue with inadequate sweat glands, she has to be careful in the heat her whole life because her body can't properly cool it self.

But to answer your question, though a smal difference, yes I sweat less at a lower weight. :)
