    So I am now down to 275 lbs and the size 44 jeans I just fit into a month ago are getting loose again. This is good. My wife has decided that she will not knit me a sweater till I finish loosing weight and this is bad cause I am freezing all the time as fall progresses. I have lost all my insulation and am now longer a warmbear. I am a shivering bear most of the time. Is this normal? will I adapt or do all skinny people just freeze all the time?

    It is nice to be able to bend over and not have the gut in the way of breathing etc but I now have these weird flubbery bits, soft and gooey and saggy all around my waist from belly button to happy stick. Where before, when I was big, they were much firmer, now it is like wearing a poorly inflated and really lumpy gooey feeling half inflated ring round my middle. It looks gross if you ask me and no I dont have pictures. ( that's a kink I am not into tyvm.)

      Hi Warmbear!

      I'm sort of in the same boat as you, I've lost a bunch of weight and now I feel the cold more. I'm not used to it. I used to go through the winter (Connecticut) with short sleeves and a jacket and here it is the end of September and I'm in long sleeves and a jacket already!

      But I guess getting a heavier coat is a small price to pay. Still it feels weird. Good luck!

        So a week ago I started having weird sick feelings and gassy cramps then the runs, it has been 8 days so far with the cramps and dashes to the washroom. There has been a big kerfuffle in Canada about a meat producer that screwed up and loads of folks have come down with E coli infections and I think I am one of them. Now my symptoms are pretty mild and I can keep functioning and working etc so I am not so very sick but it is worrying to my wife. She is preggers and prone to making a worst case scenario out of everything.

        The weird part is during this whole time I have never felt such endless cravings for food as the last week. Not hungry but an almost desperate need to nibble, something crunchy and salty. I have been munching on raw broccoli heads dipped in home made bacon flavoured Hummus and so far I have eaten 5 bunches of the nasty stuff while at work. I hope this passes and I never have to eat another smidgen of broccoli again.

          The runs will dehydrate you, so that might be why you're craving salt. Also, if you have been getting rid of your food almost right after eating it, it's no wonder you're hungry! This might be a time for a gentle dish of sweet potato, or even a white potato, or if you indulge, white rice.

          Hope you feel better.

            Mmmm a bowl of rice would be nice. I love rice, I miss rice almost as much as I miss corn chips.

              So this morning while walking, I actually remembered to have my son take a shot of me so everyone can see what I look like.

              I am looking for a suitable before pic but I dont have many in the same style for comparison as I disgust myself to tears just looking at me.

                Wow Warmbear! Very impressive! What ever you are doing is obviously working.

                    I am a big fan of that wacky diet fad, the paleo diet. Who knew eh?

                      So as of Friday morning I am down to 265 lbs which means 5 more pounds to the big 100 lbs lost. I am excited, giggly even and for a big guy to admit that, you know it is something. I have been IF'ing a cpl times a week, 24 hours ish each but still am with the heavy grumbly tummy and the fixating on food. You would think I was an addict or something.

                      A month ago I bought myself some slightly snug size 44 jeans and now they are too big and baggy. sigh 40's are still a wee bit too snug but I can do it. I have not been in 40's since '91. I am actually excited to know that soon I will be wearing pants in the 30's.

                      Still planning a KFC pigout when I make it to 250. I will regret it but what of worth in life is not regrettable in some way? right?

                      My legs have thinned out, my arms and hands are thinned out my face is looking much thinner and I now have a chin not a slope to my chest but my tummy and the flubbery rolls under my belt are still in full force. ick. I hate looking at meself naked. I dont know how the wife stands it.

                        In my humble opinion: I think you're totally hot looking -- seriously --- very very handsome man. Also sounds so me through the forum that you have a warm personality to boot. I think your wife is a very fortunate woman.

                        And by the way, skip the KFC --- look for another reward, equally gratifying and not food related.

                        Keep up with the exercising and the 'belly business' will tighten up.

                          Ahh shucks, thanks. I think she is pretty fortunate too, sometimes she even agrees with me.

                          KFC is and always was my favorite treat in the whole world, more than chocolate more than coffee more than rare deer liver. Nothing compares with KFC to me. I have not had it in a long time, years and years really as I know how bad it is but really having it once wont hurt me permanently anyways and no other way to make fried chicken comes close.

                            Hello, my name is bear and I am a nosh addict. I have been noshing for 45 years and cant seem to stop. I love the feeling of something salty and crunchy in my mouth. I nosh when I am not hungry, when I am bored and when I am anxious. I nosh when I am full because I dont want to stop noshing. When not noshing I crave the nibblements and cant wait to nosh again. sigh.

                              WarmBear: You may have to come and live with me. I'm a 'non-nosher' and the only thing in my house to nosh on is frozen meat -- maybe a zucchenni --- and a toothbrush. I have no snack foods, nothing interesting in my fridge. All ingredients need to be combined and then cooked. It's quite uninteresting and works well for weight loss :-)

                                Hehehe could be fun but my wife is an issue. I also work for a company that makes and sells nuts and dried fruit. So Nosh is just steps away and there for the asking. to me nuts = crack.

                                Yesterday was a fasting day, I spent the whole day craving dreaming salivating over the idea of the act of nosh. I did not actually do it just fantasy.
