In brief: Losing insulation
Hi you are probably doing great, please get routine labs done esp.
Thyroid. But in the event all is o-kwhen you lose fat in your body you lose it all over including your fat inside your abdomen etc.Your body may be adjusting to its' lack of fat insulation. Your body organs like to be kept warm, the body will divert warm blood from your arms and legs to your body core. Keep warm-it'll get better.

I would wonder if you have a thyroid problem. That is easily diagnosed with a blood test.
