I have seen this online somewhere in the past ... and it is driving me nuts trying to find it again ...

If you are dieting and exercising ... actively trying to lose weight ... and you notice that you are COLD during the day ... hands are cold ... hard time staying warm ... no matter what the temperature is outside ...

Do you ALWAYS register a loss on the scale the next day??

If you have not noticed this before ... take note and see what you think ... I've been on a pretty good diet / exercise program since the beginning of the new year (down about 17 pounds so far) ... and I have noticed that every other day or so ... I am FREEZING all day ... especially my hands ...

They have been cold today again ... so I KNOW that when I step on the scale tomorrow morning ... I'll be down again ...

Assuming of course that I don't eat like the proverbial pig tonight!!

Anyone else notice this happening with them??

Not necessarily on certain days or noticing it and then stepping on the scale and having lost, especially since I don't weigh myself often...lol, BUT after having lost 20 lbs., I noticed that I was cold a lot more than I was before. I joke with my husband and tell him it's because I got rid of 20 lbs. of blubber that was keeping me warm. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

That is certainly true ... losing that insulating layer of fat definitely has something to do with it ...
I read something else somewhere that was a good dieting "tip" ... about drinking lots of ice water or cold beverages while dieting ... that unless you are peeing ice cubes (smile) ... your body has to do some "work" in order to heat that liquid before you pass it out of your body ... therefore burning some calories!!

Oh, absolutley! I think all the experts actually agree on that...LOL! I can't drink my water any other way http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif

I have never heard of that but I do seem to be colder now that I have lost quite a bit of weight too. Interesting!

Update ...

I WAS indeed down on the scale again Saturday morning ... losing two pounds after being cold all day ... and working out vigorously on Friday night ...

Of course ... that led to me eating like a horse on Saturday ... but that is beside the point ... http://wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

I have always been told that the first winter a person goes thru after weight loss, is a cold winter! Loss of Insulation http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

FREEZING today ... definitely a "good sign" for the diet!!

02-13-2008, 07:31 AM
Sure enough ... down another 1.5 pounds ... even after rice for dinner ... and two chocolate covered strawberries for dessert!!

Down 18 pounds since the beginning of the year!!

Hi, Deadra!

Yes, after losing all that weight I definitely froze my tail off 2 winters ago!! This winter wasn't quite as bad. Yep...definitely a loss of insulation! But I sure don't mind losing it! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif

I have seen the opposite - that people gain weight in the sweltering heat - that is generally due to water retention. For example coming back from a holiday in the sun to the normal cool Scottish climate I will easily lose 2 to 3lbs the day after I return...just when i think I must have eaten more than I thought on vacation.

No matter what temperature I am, hot or cold, and no matter what I eat, healthy or junk I gain weight....http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley19.gifsmileys/smiley36.gif
