I'm going to revive this thread in case in case it's helpful to anyone recently having lost a lot of weight since winter is on the way.
Originally, I experienced cold intolerance during my first winter after big weight loss. [Okay, I'm a weather wimp who complains if the ambient temp is lower than 68F, higher than 72F
]. A lot of posters chimed in with similar experiences and good tips.Thanks neurodoc
for explaining the cause and what to do about it (exercise, eat more!).
Just something to keep in mind as you build your new, smaller-sized wardrobe... You may need warmer things than before, even in California
[A side note...I had an unplanned weight gain of ~10 lbs over the last few months and became more active, though not working out. As neurodoc predicted, I no longer have the chilled-to-the-bone feeling. Hope to hang onto that as I get the weight back down where it belongs].
