    It is common to be cold on the diet BUT blue nails is not that common, hence you should pop along and see your GP and get a general health check to make sure you are safe and sound, sure everything is fine but always best to be safe :)

    No blue nails, but a blue tongue! (only joking, check my avatar - different story!)

    However, I do usually feel the cold but since doing SS on CD I have been pretty much freezing all the time. At home the heating is on high and I've always got a hot water bottle for feet/hands/back - in fact, wherever needs it most!

    when you press your nail does it go white and when you release the pressure go blue again. ? it is not normal to get to blue nails but yes if you are like an ice box then extremeties will always go blue first . as you are colder you veins and arteries constrict so to places like ears, fingers, toes will always go the coldest first and turn a bluish colour cos of the blood supply. it is just the bodies way of dealing with the cold. . stick a pair of gloves on and warm them hands. it is prob cos you are cold.
    how are you feeling in yourself ?

    Hey Sue, I'm feeling fine, it is something I get bother with if I'm pretty cold, which I have been since starting the diet, it's not so bad now as the house is heating up more (old farmhouse and takes a while for it to heat up) like I said it needs to be really warm for me to feel cosy since starting SS. Nevermind tho, haven't felt ill or anything, just the sore head thing, so I can handle this I think lol.

    yeah ...... was at 12 9 did 2 weeks then stuffed my face and started ss again yesterday ... fortunately despite all my eating last week ididnt put any weight back on !!! so i am at 12 st 1 now . my first goal is to make 11 stone by end of novemebr.... was aiming for 10 10 but my try and get to 10 stone . have never ever been that light before my usual pre kid wt was always around 10 st 4 which for me is a perfect size 14 !!! i do keep hopping on and off scales ........ heres for a decent loss this week . although ,y cdc did say as it is not a huge amount to loose losses maybe smaller than what others get , i tihnk that i felt quite despondant last week losing 5 lb was hoping it would be 8 or 9lb !!! so thought stuff it... much more focused now though. ( im 36 and 5f5" )...
    so have you been hopping on and off scales ? do your clothes feel looser ? i feel the same !!!!

    Hey Nessie, I suffer with blue nails a lot of the time. And feel the cold terribly - so on SS you can imagine what it's like!! I also have this weird thing where my fingers go wrinkly (like you've been in the bath too long) but it's cold and hard. Been to see my GP and referred to hospital for tests, but it's been put down to poor circulation :rolleyes:. Best get it checked just in case thou hun x
