Winter blues, weight loss and a sneaky hot water bottle

I was amused to see an article in wired about how being cold can help you lose weight. I think that the temperature has been below freezing for the entire month of February. I am tired of looking at snow. The people who write articles about using the cold to lose weight are living in California where it is warm most of the time., so it natural to fantisise about being cold. When you wake to the cold every day, it doesn't sound like such a good idea.

Even the German newspapers report that it is a very gloomy winter. Every day I see the picture below outside my window.

To my shame, the devil tempted me I purchased a hot water bottle yesterday. There is no one to share my bed and my feet get cold.
