You know what sucks about going from the size I used to be to the size I am now? Frankly, almost nothing. Except....
I'M COLD! All the freaking time. I just cannot get warm. Now before anyone suggests I get my thyroid checked, I have had bloodwork done twice in the last year, including the week before surgery, and everything is normal.
I guess losing this layer of fat has just made this huge difference in my ability to warm myself. Poor Marc, every time we ride in the car, he is sweating his ass off, and here I am with the heat full blast and perfectly comfortable. And at home, the thermostat is set at 70 and I'm in 2 layers of clothing, plus 2 blankets.
Today we took the dogs for a walk. It was in the 60's and I had a heavy sweatshirt on over a long t-shirt.
It's a small price to pay but still.... I may have to move to some place near the equator!
