Since I started my weight loss journey, I have lost a little over 100 pounds. In that time I ran into a few unexpected consequences. Here are two that happened to me recently.
- I had to move the seat up in my Jeep, because there is less fat on my back and I was struggling to reach the pedals.
- My bike helmet needed to be adjusted, because there is less fat on my chin and face. This is obvious when you think about it, but I never thought about it being a problem until it happened.
My journey has not been smooth sailing the whole time. I still struggle with overeating and don’t always want to exercise. However, all the difficulties have been worth it. My life is so much better now.

There are a lot of reasons for people to eat when they are not hungry. My main reasons are:
If I am going to be successful in my weight loss journey, I have to find a way to deal with the craving to eat when I am not hungry. I have to find another way to fill that desire. I need replacement behaviors like:
- Change tasks
- Take a Walk
- Talk to Someone
Do you struggle with the desire to eat when you are not hungry? If so, how do you handle your cravings?

I have noticed that my tolerance for cold weather has greatly reduced. I lost a lot of body fat which once insulated by body, so I understand why this is happening.
I hope I will eventually adjust to colder temperatures, and not feel like I am freezing all the time.
