I Used to Be Hot, Now I'm Cold

Weighed in this morning at 153 pounds.

Over the past five days my weight went up to as high as 156 pounds, after a full day of eating and beer drinking. But I was able to control my portions in the subsequent days, and managed start off this week just a few pounds over my target weight.

Even though I didn't blog anything over those past five days, you can still see my weight loss chart at the far-right; I've been logging my weigh ins.

The joke now is that I'm always cold, and my wife is always hot. It used to be the other way around. I want to say that it's because I don't have the layers of fat to keep my blood warm. But the fact is that when I was this slim in my early 20s, I didn't feel cold back then.

And the same is true of my wife. She used to always be cold when she was in her 20s, and was actually heavier than she is now.

But when I was in my 20s, I was always thin. I could eat and eat and eat and never gain weight. Today, I don't have a problem gaining weight. So I figured my metabolism was running at a higher pace in those days than it is now.

In the car, we fight over the thermostat, she has to have it turned to 68 degrees F, I have to have it at 74. The same is true inside the house.

I'm guessing even at my heaviest weight of 240 pounds, I was still cold. It's just the layer of fat made it difficult to notice.
