    I am so cold

    This is the worst side effect. I've been loosing weight. Down to 148 this morning from 205 in April. Waist is 30 from 40in. And I'm COLD. All my insulating fat is gone. All the time I'm cold. I just can't seem to warm up. ARRRRRGGGGGHHHH!
    -------

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    And you live in Sacramento? You should move to Ohio. We're having a hot streak right now. It's 45 and raining.

    COngrats. DOn't worry, I'm at 215 (lost 10 lbs in the past 2 months since I really started trying) and I've ALWAYS been cold. Today is the first day I've been able to feel my fingers in a week. When I was in high school and ran XC (non-competitively - did 3 miles in 16 minutes daily), when we would fall out for breakfast ranks (military school), there were times when, even with a winter coat, hat, leather gloves and a scarf I would be so cold that I'd pull muscles shivering.

    It's not even that cold here. It'll probably get to 45, and it's rainy. Last winter I'd be wearing shorts and sandals in this. Now I'm cold.

    Heh, up until about two years ago, I weighed in at about fifty-ish pounds more than I do now, and tended to wear shorts all through the winter. People thought I was crazy, while I just thought I was unusually resistant to cold. Then I lost all the weight, and I would occasionally find myself feeling... cold? Geez, I thought I was sick or something at first.

    Ha! Welcome to my world! At work, I have 1/2 dozen co-workers (100+ pounds over weight) still in short sleeved summer tops, while I'm in double socks, pants, leg warmers, and a long skirt, and a min. of 3 layers up top! You'll warm up again in sometime in May...

    Warm socks, sweaters, etc, do nothing.

    Put on a wool hat.

    Or book a flight to Bora Bora.

    In the bad old days, when I was carrying 274 lbs. on my 5'-9" frame. being cold was the LAST thing I needed to worry about. I didn't sleep under the blankets all winter long.

    Now I weigh 165. And I live in the land where they invented the expression "If you don't like the weather, just wait 15 minutes." Yesterday, it got up to 58 degrees, I went for a nice bike ride. I woke up this morning at 6:30, it was 21. By the time I got out of church at 8:45, it was down to 16. Right now, the thermometer outside my kitchen is showing 8 degrees. At least that's the closest I can tell with the way the thermometer is shaking in the 30 MPH wind. I'm wearing a wool sweater that makes me look like I still weigh 274. And I'M STILL COLD.

    Absolutely the only thing that totally sucks bout losing a bunch of weight.

    Congrats on the weight loss Joel!

    I'm persistently cold too. I have to wear gloves while driving. In California.

    I drink a lot of hot tea (usually herbal) to keep me warm.

    Hey, driving gloves are cool. You just need the goggles and the jacket to go with it.

    After I lost 30 pounds, I had the same issue. Either I got used to it, or riding in the cold a lot has helped me adapt better.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    Probably not without squirting antifreeze into the opening around the front door.

    It takes a good amount of courage. Started my car in the morning, took a shower, made some breakfast, and after 45 minutes decided to leave. Car was nice and toasty. It remained running while i did my quick bit of shopping.

    I have to work outside in that crap tomorrow, cant wait

    -32C equals -26F. You may see that in Brooklyn this year. Chicago in '82 saw -40F, wind chill below 70. That was scary cold.

    My old car had a feature* that allowed one to remove the key after starting the car. Handy for stuff like warming it up unattended, getting into the trunk without shutting the thing off, or going back into the house to get something you've forgotten. I wish more cars worked like that.

    *It gained this feature after I disassembled and reassembled the steering column. I'm sure I left a few parts out.

    A friend has a bike with a similar feature, it gained that feature after someone else tried to jimmy the lock.
