Unhappy Burrrrrr!!!!!

Ok--I live in Orange County, it's hardly cold here...(about 50 degrees at night and 75-80 degrees during the day). I'M FREEZING! All the time! What is going on? Especially my feet, hands, and face. I must attribute it to the weight loss...but I feel frozen to the bone like when I lived in Michigan! Is anyone else experiencing this? I thought at first it was just from the fat loss...but I haven't lost THAT much and it's not like I'm skinny (yet!)! lol. Any suggestions? Am I nutritionally deficient in something? (I take a 1-a-day). Help! =)

I am MUCH colder these days than I used to be. In the past I was always the one who was burning up, but now I'm freezing all the time, even when bundled up. There was a thread here not that long ago about this side effect of weight loss, lots of people to commiserate with!

ETA -- Here it is:

StellarGirl, me too, and I'm not far from you.

Part of it I think is the blasted air-conditioning. The hotter it is outside, the colder it is inside - as if when it's 80 degrees out we want to be 65 inside, and if it's 90 degrees out, well we must want to be 60 degrees inside.

I think I'm going to have to give up my cold drinks for a while

I'm freezing all the time. My bones get cold. One good thing about it is that I've learned to move around a lot to warm up. My hubby and kids laugh at me, but it helps. I figure I'm staying warmer and burning more calories by bouncing around. I also love the cute gloves in so many pretty colors!
Oh, and I'm in Northern CA and it isn't really that cold here either.

Have you ever had your thyroid checked? Being cold is a symptom of Hypothyroidism.

I'm in OC too and I agree it's been really cold when the sun goes down. I think it's the fact that it wasn't a gradual cool down that made it feel so bone chilling to us weather wimps. I've got two dogs that are not happy being inside or outside - they want to be in both places (sometimes laying over the threshold to ensure the door remains open). So I tend to have the back door open until I go to bed and it's freezing in my house! Not even woolly slippers, sweatshirts, etc. seem to help. Anywho, just commiserating with you - it's cold at night by our standards. Close to 80 the next few days though, so soak it up!

Where are your calories? If you're not eating enough, you metabolism may be reducing your body temperature to conserve energy.

I have the same problem. For me, it's just the fact that I literally am colder- my body is getting used to fewer calories and therefore using less energy naturally, so my average temperature has dropped from 99.5 to about 97.5. I hate it, I'm always freezing. The only things I've found that help are extra, extra layers and hot showers.

Also, I don't have a thyroid or nutritional problem. My doc says it's just a drop in metabolism that comes from losing so much weight.

I am freezing all the time. It is the weight loss.

Keep warm!

I agree about having your thyroid checked. This is one of the first things that happened to me when my thyroid was going. I was around 210 at the time, so I certainly should have had enough "insulation" to keep me warm, but it didn't. I was freezing often (and I'm a Vermonter, so I'm used to the cold).
