The Dark Side of Weight Loss

People tell you all the wonderful things that happen when you lose weight but they fail to mention this one deep, dark, secret that I'm now going to share.

Skinny people live in a cold, cold world.


I'm the girl that was never cold, well, hardly ever. I skied in single digits. I camped all winter. I went swimming in various rivers and lakes in Kentucky and Tennessee in November. I loved everything about winter.

Since last November, however, I have lost 30+ lbs and I am cold. I am freezing. I've been wearing sweatshirts since September. Before I go anywhere I put all my clothes in the dryer so they'll be warm when I put them on. I've added blankets to my bed and find excuses to use the heating pad.

But, you know what? It's so worth it. :)

  1. I agree with you 100 percent! If it weren't for hot flashes, I'd never be warm. LOL
