    Surprising advantages/perks of losing weight

    Okay, just looking for some extra motivation.

    For people that have gone from fat to fit, have you found any perks/advantages/changes in your life that you didn't expect.

    Like little known perks of losing weight?

    Random strangers that you find attractive hit on you (sometimes even younger ones!)... always good for the EGO!

    Well, I only lost about 10-15 lbs of non-pregnancy induced weight, but it made a big difference.

    Pro: Guys at the meat counter are more willing to do favors for me. (Can't you please just slice that up for me....please?)

    Con: I get carded more (flattering, but annoying)

    I can wear heels to work without being crippled by midday

    (know heeled shoes are not Primal at all, but I work in a corporate environment where my Vibrams just aren't appropriate unfortunately)

    Thighs not rubbing together - omg, best thing ever. 90% of my wardrobe now is skirts and dresses.

    Being able to comfortably cross my legs.

    People treating me 100000x better - took me a while to come to grips with that one.

    +1 on Thighs!!! -- I sure got tired of my pants wearing out in the inner thighs. I had to give up buying suits and go to sport coats and slacks, I've got lots of coats with no pants.

    Knees that don't hurt.
    Feet that don't get puffy.
    Sinuses that are congestion free all the time.
    Never getting sick.
    Getting hit on by guys young enough to be my kids.
    Skin that doesn't need makeup.
    Instead of "OMG, I need to find something to eat!" when out, it's "Cool, unplanned IF."
    +1 on the thighs issue. Daylight between them means hiking all day in shorts without that uncomfortable bunching up of fabric.
    Better cardio vascular health plus better flexibility=BETTER SEX! Yay!
