No one tells you how much colder you'll get after WLS and weight loss in general. I have found that I am not alone with this. I AM SO COLD! All the time, even back in Sept. when it was still quite warm.
We here in Southern Oregon have been in a cold snap and on the mountain where I live it has been 12-14 degrees overnight and has warmed to a high of 24! (I think today is supposed to be a heat wave - 30's) I live on a small ranch and our heat source is wood. If the fire dies down the temp drops fast in this house! Brrrr...
Remember me bitching about our well drying up in the summer....well yesterday we had pipes freeze and burst and hubby has them nearly fixed. I've been hauling 5 gallon buckets of water to my horse as all of those pipes froze up too (good work out at least)
Had my 6th fill on Wednesday. I got .3 cc's This puts me at 8.4 roughly in my realize band.(this is half of my un-fill back) I am losing slowly but steady, gaining muscle and losing fat! I feel I have great restriction (today) and I am rarely hungry. I need to work on increasing my water intake but it is so cold I am drinking tea & coffee mostly.
Something I have found much easier is going out to a meal. I can pretty much order from any menu without a lot of special requests. I find I can make 2 meals out of pretty much any order. I have become a fan of the roasted chicken from the grocery store. I drain all the drippings and throw the skin away when I get it home, then baggie it up for a few servings. It seems to stay moist even with reheating so I like that!
Better get moving, I have heaps of laundry piled up from the busted pipe situation.
Just thought I would post SOMETHING, even if it is a bunch of bitching. :)
Here are a couple pictures of one of our frozen ponds...
