Today I’m super cold at work. Specifically my hands and feet. Any thoughts as to why? I got sleeve on 7/3.

I was just thinking, since I started the post surgery liquid diet Monday, I have been cold! Is it because of the diet or drop in calories, or am I starving to death? Lol .

I am cold all the time since surgery. I know many people that feel the same since surgery as well. I now carry a sweatshirt in the car at all times, and have a jacket at work since the temp is set at 72 all the time.

Prior to surgery I was always hot and easily sweat. Now I really have to work to break any sort of sweat.

Glad to hear I’m not the only one. Today was hectic and didn’t get my usual 50-70 Protein. I thought it might be bc of that. 🤷‍♀️ I feel fine otherwise. Definitely going to get an electric blanket or two. Lol The women at my job blast the a/c all day. I can usually tolerate it...not today. Best to you all! ❤️

I was always cold when I lost weight with the band. My skinny husband always froze, he was happy. You're taking off a coat as you lose, so yes you'll feel cold.

that's really common - not sure what causes it. I don't really get cold anymore (or any more than a normal person would, that is), so it was a temporary thing with me, but with some people, it seems to be permanent.

I’m always cold now....less “insulation” I guess 😂

Human fat is a very good insulator. As you lose weight (fat), this insulation barrier will get thinner.

Since the OP had surgery on 7/3 I doubt that this is the main reason. But over time, this condition will become more pronounced.

Prior to surgery I was very warm blooded. I would drive in my car in the winter with the windows down even when it was snowing. I was just a little too hot. But after surgery, I am experiencing the other extreme. Thank God, someone invented hand warmers. When shoveling snow in the winter, they are a blessing.

I never got cold, but I've seen a lot of people in these forums say they were cold after bariatric surgery

It's not only the weight loss, it's also the calorie restriction.

I have quite cold (or at least cool) hands with hidden veins in the morning until I start eating at noon. Then my hands get warm and the veins come out. I also tend to be more cold sensitive during the fasting window or when I'm tired.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
