Things I hate about being skinny



Recommended Posts

Ok this is a bad topic title but not sure how else to say it. There are things I hate about being skinny that I never thought of before.

The biggest thing is I am always cold. Always. 100 degrees outside and I'm chilly. Went to Cabo last month and as soon as I got out of the airport I jumped into the sun. Everyone else was hiding in the shade to stay cool. I was the only one in the sun. I now wear a jacket during work and two lab coats on top.

Another is my loss of counter weight. I used to be able to push or pull any thing. Now I'm just mortal strength. :(. No more just put your weight behind it.

I knew about all the other things. Smaller portion sizes. Water only. No sugar. No this. No that. I was prepared for those things. I was not about these two.

Are their others who have similar feeling bugs about stuff you had no idea would happen and you just hate it?

And butt pain. The little tail bone pain is killing me. No car seat is comfy anymore. No seats at work. They all are killing my ass.

Haha. I was just saying to my husband how uncomfortable the park bench that I sat on at lunch was and I was in a jacket and cold in 86 degrees!

For those who have butt pain, a gel cushion will help. Pick them up at Bed Bath and Beyond.

In winter when it gets really cold and I venture off to shovel snow, I now us hand warmers in my gloves. What a great invention.

I would always drive with the window open even when it got down in the 40's. This always drove everyone else in the car crazy. I now feel the cold. My wife says it is nature's revenge. "What comes around, goes around!"

At almost 2 years out, I am still cold all the time. But, I'll take it ...

It's so great being a normal weight.

Yes floating becomes a challenge also. My kids can easily sink me now.

And even though I have these things that I find annoying I would rather be skinny and enjoying life with these small things rather than have the problems associated with being larger.

lol i love this! i still have a while to go, and paradoxically my butt has gotten bigger yet with my tailbone it hurts more to sit. and lying on my side means knee bone rub. just bones, man. all the bones.

except the collar bones. those are just fantastic

Oh, great. I'm just 7 weeks post-op, and I've noticed that I've been feeling freakishly cold lately. Somebody told me that as I lose more weight, I'll be more sensitive to it.

While I'm sure I'd rather lose the weight, being able to walk around in a short sleeve shirt and shorts in 32 degree weather may be something I truly miss. Ha ha!

I'm looking forward to feeling cold. I'm hot (and sweating) ALL the time. I've seen several doctors about it because it is so extreme. I'm in Austin, mostly it is hot here. I can't wait for winter. It's the only time I'm comfortable! Soon I will be comfortable all the time? A jacket is easy. Yay!

Just got back from the lake. Everyone else was enjoying the 78 degree Water temp. I just could not do it. Just shivered the whole time. I got back to the camp and started the biggest dang bonfire you ever did see just to get dry and warm.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
