    I've found that I'm wearing a lot more sweaters than I used to. As much as I would love to curl up in an electric blanket or a heating pad I really can't do that at work.

    Cold? Amen. I pulled out a heating pad to warm a muscle pull, but now all I want to do is snuggle up to the thing. I feel like a one woman fire hazard. Maybe oughta upgrade.

    I LOVE my electric blanket at work! Recently my couch blankets at home haven't been cutting it, but we just bought our son new bunkbeds and associated bedding. I have commandeered one of the poofy, dragon-covered, fleece backed twin blankets as my couch blanket :D

    I need to get myself one of those heated blankets. One for home and one for work.
    They make them for the car as well ;) a lady at church was talking about getting one as a gift (she had GBP surgery a couple months ago and was talking about losing her layer of insulation and being cold all the time).

    That your squishy comfortable days are over.

    My behind hurts when I sit. I feel bones.

    My hips and bony knees ache when I sleep on my side, my back hurts when I sleep on my front or back.

    It's 3.48am and this sucks.

    Seriously. I also thought I would like the feel of being a bit more bony than I currently do. Occasionally I’ll brush a hand over a body part, go “yikes, what is that hard lump!” and then realize it’s just bone. It’s all a little sharper than I expected it to be too.

    I even asked my athletic daughter how the heck she gets comfy and she just shrugged.

    Does it get easier over time? I'm going to buy pillows today to pad myself out a little. I can only imagine how uncomfortable it'll be when the rest of this weight is gone :/

    At 1st it's like sitting upon a bicycle seat {regardless, of 1's weight}, after a decade of not doing so. I bought an exercise bike, used it once & it hurt so immensely I was sore enough, that I was unable to even walk normally. I went to the store to purchase the largest, thickest package of maxi pads to stuff my pants, plus adhere to the seat with.

    Within a week I was reducing the # of maxi pads, until a few weeks later none were necessary. The body eventually conforms, to changes.

    Get bicycle shorts. They actually have riding shorts that are built full of padding.

    I have one at work too. I've always needed one though even when I was fat. They keep the air conditioning insanely high in most places during the summer.

    Don't forget about the chamois cream. :)

    A good sfw visual explanation of how to use:
