Since you started your journey to better health or weightloss, have there been any unexpected side benefits? What has surprised you the most?

I'm just getting started with this so I don't really have anything to report yet but I am really hoping that once I start working out regularly for a while that my periods will get better. I have really long really heavy periods and it would be so awesome if working out made them a little lighter and/or shorter. I'll have to let you know about that in a couple months or so.

Honestly, not really, other than losing some weight. But, nope, no side benefits.

I tried losing weight and doing things right but the day I surprised myself the most and what really made me happy was when I when from a size 18 pants to a size 13. I haven't been in that size pants for about 4 years now. Great feeling. I "hoped" to lose weight but I thought I would just be overweight for the rest of my life and it would be hard for me to lose weight.

I also enjoy that I have 6lbs to lose before I hit my mid way mark. I started out a 211 and weight 184 now, but once I weigh 178 I will have lost 33lbs and will have 33lbs for my goal weight. That would be a great accomplishment for me.

OK, no joking about my family size or condition... I have found my libido has been improved. Went a few years being uninterested or unable to fully enjoy sex (if ya know what I mean...) Been married 17 years and it is awesome to feel like a young couple again! I can't say for sure that losing weight is what did the trick, but I'm sure it has helped normalized my hormones, and I definitely feel more comfortable with my body.

I haven't really noticed any side benefits yet. Just really getting into it now though so we will see.
