    Feeling like it's not hard to pack for a trip because most of our clothes actually fit!

    I can’t wait for this!!! I am on my way - but not there yet.

    How cold you get without a thick pad of insulation

    You too? I thought I was the only one. I am freezing all. the. time. I just hope my body gets used to it.

    You will not get used to it. I've always been cold when I'm skinny. The only protection you might get against it is building muscle, as that also keeps your motor/metabolism running. But still, less fat = being cold.

    The other thing that people have mentioned here is that less fat = more uncomfortable when doing things like yoga, pilates, and other mat work. Any position on the knees or elbows like low plank is worse when you're thinner, even if you are stronger (or equally strong but the moves are easier because there's less body weight to lift.) Once again, sometimes building muscle can provide a cushion that helps with this situation, but given where muscles go, that usually doesn't work (they're not ON the knee, for example.) Just use a thick mat or the other cushioning equipment when you're doing this kind of exercise.

    My protection against being cold in the winter is to hop on my treadmill desk! Kills two birds with one stone.

    That you don't lose weight evenly. I have 9kg to go (of 35 total) and it's pretty much all on my belly and hips - the place where I most want to lose it from!

    i like this one ! You are very correct you do not lose weight where you want it
