Clumsy, too-- I keep losing my balance when I'm walking. Should I chalk that up to the rapid changes that my body is going through, at least partially?

I know my metabolism has slowed. Trying to keep warm is an eternal struggle-- I finally made it to sleep last night under three comforters, wearing two shirts and sweat pants, otherwise I was shivering. And the house isn't that cold.

It's undoubtedly partially metabolic, but I would suspect it's more nutritional. There are a lot of vitamins and trace minerals that you ingest almost by accident when eating larger quantities of food; you should be taking vitamin and mineral supplements twice a day now.

I am. Flintstones Chewable with iron and a calcium citrate + vitamin D suppliment. I also have a B12 that I'll probably start tonight.

I suspect that it also has a lot to do with the plummeting weight. My body isn't very happy with me right now.

I'm perma-cold now that I've lost some 40 lbs. I have moments where I realize I'm NOT cold more often than noticing I'm chilled.

Ideas
Trying to keep warm is an eternal struggle

When I get like this, I try to take a hot shower before bed (so my body retains heat until I get into the covers. I've also made a "bed budy" by putting uncooked white rice into a tube sock, and microwaving it for a minute at a time (NO MORE). The idea is to get it hot, but not burnt. It retains heat for a while, and I can put it near my cold toes, or along my back.... and I stay toasty warm. And of course, there is always an electric blanket, warm pet, or companion to keep you warm. ;-)

Worth a try? I think so.
