AH-MAY-ZING what getting rid of 130+ pounds does--I used to perspire all the time. Right now it's 95 degrees and humid here in Philly and I barely break a sweat. The heat used to bother me horribly, and now it hardly bothers me at all. I used to be so embarrassed that I walked around sweating profusely all the time. I looked like a grease-ball! Everyday I find something to be grateful for from this surgery. It's like the rewards just never cease!

I know what you mean.. I remember the first summer when I met my hubby (2003).. and I was a good 60 lbs lighter than my heaviest and we were at a folk festival with various tents around the ground and I was just sitting in that main tent, sweating profusely..... and so trust me when I say how shocked I was when the man actually asked if we could spend more time together, lol...

And here it is in the 80's and humid and I'm perfectly comfortable! lol I was the one that turned on my central air when it was 75 degrees!

Amazing isn't it??

I'm three months out and I am cold most of the time. Before surgery I didn't know what being cold felt like. I was always on overheat mode. Our AC is out at work and while everyone is fanning themselves and complaining I am for the most part comfortable. I freeze at home because hubby and kids have the AC on so low.

This is great to know because I sleep with a sheet and stay warm these days while my husband piles on the blankets. The threat of a hot day really makes me consider if I should go out not only because of the sweating but the sunscreen/sunburn aspect.

Do an advanced search on the words "cold" and or "freezing". It's a much bigger problem post op than ever being too hot! But is definitely a blessing on these really warm, humid days, for sure!

I sleep under my electric blanket year 'round! My husband makes fun of me all the time. LOL He tells me we gotta get me a blood transfusion. During the winter, I FREEZE to death! I mean....to the point of being miserable and everyone else is comfortable. I feel like my bones are trembling.

I describe it as my internal thermometer has gone crazy. I used always be hot, now I'm always cold. I drive in 90deg weather and have the windows open rather than the AC on. Drives my wife nuts because we used to be on the same page, we slept with windows open in the Winter, now I'm cold even in the Summer.

Tell me about it. One of the things my hunny and I connected over was that I was always as warm/hot as he was.. so we laughed when everyone was cold. I lived in NE and didn't even wear a winter coat!

It's June 3rd and I'm running my woodstove this AM. I am lucky- though hubby teases me and sometimes complains, he was the one who offered to make a fire for me before he left for his doctors appointment. This is true love :)

It was in the 80's and sunny here yesterday and I had on a long sleeve t-shirt and a sweater over that with capris and sandals...I would have melted before!

Oh my twin, we are just so alike! hehe I am not where you are yet, of course, but I can TOTALLY agree that I was a sweat ball before. In the summer I was a walking, talking, dripping sweat machine and I still sweat a lot at the gym and in the humidity (myy body hates it) but it is NOTHING like before :) So happy for you! HUGS!

Ditto Julie
I love summer now. Formerly hated it. Not only do I sweat less, I have far less excuses to don a bathing suit and hop in the pool. The old adage "don't ever let 'em see you sweat" works for me now.

Oh my! I hate to be cold. I mean I really hate it! Being cold aggravates me and makes me grumpy as all get out.... If I'm going to be cold for the rest of my life, I'm glad I already have life-long, thick or thin, sick or sin friends; otherwise, I'd be one lonely puppy. You know, I think I can make this work for me. I never shop for myself anymore unless I have to and I NEVER buy myself "the good stuff." Maybe now I won't really have a choice, instead of one nice sweater (a splurge, which my loving sister shrunk by accident when she came to take care of me after hospital stay) I can buy all nice sweaters (just a lot fewer) and a good pair of boots. Wow, I have not purchased clothes in years (I have a friend that is a shop-a-holic and who was losing mad weight). Well I'll cross that bridge when I get there. Right now I'm just gad I read this thread so I can begin to mentally prepare for freezing my butt off.
