I have had this happen a few times when I have gone out in the cold and start shivering so hard my teeth almost chatter. The thing that happens the most is even after only being out in the cold a short time my toes and fingers are so ice cold that it takes forever for them to warm up.. it gets annoying. The shivering sucks.. hehe. But yeah..

Summer? In Minnesota? Is that like when the ice gets soft?.


Comment #3

Lets be thankful were not ice pops.....

Or polar bears.

Or the freezer compartment.

Or a snowflake.

Or a snowman (like JIMBO UK).

I have been doing some internet.


On this same subject. I was a cold person before.


And now I am in pain from the cold. lol Here is a really good article I read..

Body temperature is the result of your body generating and radiating.


The body is adept at keeping it's temperature within a narrow range even though ambient air conditions vary. A normal body temperature is 98.6F. It is common during the period of rapid weight loss for bariatric patients to feel cold or chilled, even when their temperature reads normal..

People who experience the massive weight loss associated with weight loss.


Experience feeling cold for two reasons: loss of insulation and less energy generation..

Fat is a highly efficient insulator. Consider animals native to cold climates: for example sea lions and polar bears. They are loaded with insulation and thrive in cold climates. When gastric bypass patients follow the rules: eating protein and exercising, the weight lost can only come from fat or stored energy. In effect you are losing your insulation. Less insulation increases the likelihood that you will feel cold..

The second reason for feeling chilled is that the metabolic cell processes are not working as hard as when you were heavier; it takes fewer calories and less energy to maintain and move a smaller body. Think about using an electric mixer: if you are whipping egg whites for a meringue the mixer will do this task effortlessly. But use the same mixer to knead bread dough and it will become warm to the touch, it is working harder because it is moving more mass. The same thing happens with your body; the more mass it must move, the harder it works. As a result more.


Is generated..

The body has two well-tuned mechanisms for regulating body temperature: sweating and shivering. What overweight person hasn't been embarrassed by a sticky bout of sweating at the most inappropriate time? Sweating is a mechanism for cooling your body when it becomes too hot inside. The body rids itself of excess.


By expanding the blood vessels in the skin so the.


May be carried to the surface. When this energy or.


In the form of sweat reaches the skins surface it evaporates and helps cool the body..

Gastric bypass patients become more familiar with the second temperature regulator, shivering, as they.

Lose weight.

When you are too cold your blood vessels will contract reducing blood flow to the skin. The body responds by shivering which creates extra muscle activity to help generate more.


If you allow your body to shiver it will begin to feel warmer. But this is also a good clue that it's time to put on a sweater or turn up the.


I think most weight loss patients will happily wear a sweater a sweater is much easier to shed than that insulation weve worked so hard to lose!.

Most weight loss patients report that their body temperature regulates after their weight is stabilized, usually eighteen to twenty-four months after.


Keep in mind your body is rapidly losing weight and the rest of your bodys functions are caught off guard when this weight loss begins. The bodys thermostat needs time to catch up to the weight loss, and it will. Patients who incorporate.


In their weight loss program experience less chilling than patients who do not.

Okay, here is the drill. Figure out what you want to drink that is warm. Get an electric throw blanket and plug it in. Now, when this is all set up...crawl into a.

Hot tub.

Of water and get real warm. Pop out and get under the throw with your hot drink..

Sometimes it is the only way I can maintain my sanity when my life is spent trying to find.


Anywhere and everywhere in my life!.

I am even thinking of going against my own self imposed rule and going to a tanning bed so I can feel full body.



I am 15 months out so don't expect this to end too soon for you!..

I agree with Patricia! Let's all move to the Caribbean!!!.

I get cold too and I take a hot bath. That helps immensely!..

Comment #7

OK... so I love my decision to have GBS.... and I too like many others have become a popsicle! I.


With a.

Heating pad.

On my side of the bed... I wrap up like a tamale in my blanket.... I wear socks all day every day and before I was a flip flop gal who would wear them in the snow! and I now own sweatshirts and long sleeve shirts galore! I would NEVER have worn a long sleeve shirt... Now I can do tha layered look and I am not a furnace. I went from breaking a sweat when getting dressed to being a popsicle and putting on more and more layers! If this is the trade off for a better life, I would consider it a fantastic trade!.

LOL my son call me the ice queen .... I need a snowsuit just to sit and watch t.v .....I think it's just because our bodies are not use to being slimer not so much meat on your bones anymore or maybe low.
