Have you had your thyroid levels checked post-op?
I havent had any labs done because I'm uninsured and a student

I started noticing I was often cold a few months out. My insulation was disappearing. ;( Now I am perpetually freezing. lol.

I also definitely notice my "butt bone" a lot.

Lol, when I was young I always felt the cold so I have lived most of my adult life in the Mohave Desert. But as the years passed, the weight piled on, feeling cold was a thing of the distant past.
I was 315 at my heaviest and 280 at the time of my surgery. Fortunately my best friend who had had gastric bypass a few years earlier, had warned me that I would be cold s the time. She wasn’t kidding.
I keep a flannel throw in the living room to cover with, and I wear socks and slippers to keep my feet warm.
For Christmas, my granddaughter made me a blanket (with bears on it because I collect bears) that will now join the throw on my chair.
Lol, I also invested in a small ceramic heater that blows warmth directly on me while my polar bear of a husband can continue to sit in his desired frigid temperatures

ok this i have discussed alot trying to figure it out. I was 252lbs heaviest before my gastric bypass back in October and i was never a person to feel cold unless its snowing outside. And i live in south central Texas , but the thing is now that i had my surgery and lost just about 40lbs, im always feeling cold and what makes it worse is the current time of year and my parents always have the thermostat set to 60-65F IN THE HOUSE even during winter!

HELP!

Lots of people feel the cold more when they’ve lost weight . I NEVER felt the cold and hardly ever wore jumpers even in winter , but was suddenly going out buying big thick warm jumpers .

I'm always cold now. I added a wool blanket to my side of the bed and I always wear layers to work, including one wool sweater.

I used to get my thyroid checked all the time in case it was sneakily making me fat. I'll do it again next time I do tests.

The nutritionist told me that when you lose weight your body changes. She said if I was normally hot it would change and I might get cold easier. I started at 302 and I’m down to 244. I get cold now sometimes, especially my feet. I think it’s just a common thing. I definitely would check with you dr just to make sure.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
