Does 75 degrees feel freezing cold to you?
Today I made the mistake of wearing short sleeved shirt to work and didn't bring a jacket. I was practically shivering and the thermostat read 75 degrees. I had to step outside into the 86 degree sunshine to warm up.
Yet I remember when I used to have the opposite problem. When I weighed 500 pounds I would suffer in 86 degree "heat"... And it seemed to get worse if I ate certain foods or drank certain liquids.
Now, I don't remember what those foods or drinks were.
I wonder if it was "fat".. "carbs" or "protein" rich foods that caused me to warm up.. and can I use that information to "warm up" now if I eat those same foods?

I would keep a sweater at work, and maybe drink something hot when you want to warm your core.
Enjoy one of the benefits of WLS--this summer, when it's 99 degrees F, you'll be cool as a cucumber!
I am the same way. Before I lost weight I had to keep my house at 70degrees. It funny cause I had to take cold showers because hot or warm showers just made me hotter when I got out and I would start sweating. Now I am always cold. Even when it was 85 out side . I had on a sweater but was not hot or cold just comfortable, beat that. Before I'd be trying to shed all clothing. lol

I have ALWAYS been a "hot-natured" person, but since my weight loss with the band and now with my RNY, I am ALWAYS so cold. I have a sweater at my desk at work and a blanket, a sweater in my car! i live in Tx and it gets very hot here in the summers and I still find myself chilly. It really doesn't bother me because I know I am losing my "insulation"!
