Whether or not that is attainable, it is important to stay healthy, and eventually, doctors will tell people that their health is at risk and to start losing weight. But what happens to the people who do?

What unexpected benefit did you find from losing weight?
Here's what we learned.
The biggest benefit that I didn't see coming was how easy it is to dry off. After a shower or bath or whatever it's kind of a pain to get all that skin dry, and you have more crevices for water to gather. It takes no time at all when you have less you to go around.
Last summer, I lost 80 lbs(36kg) I was amazed how little I would run out of breath. I was able to go up flights of stairs and my friends would be out of breath. It felt amazing.
Better sex. Even after just a few pounds lost. Bonus - strength training makes everything better too ;)
