Good deal. You are going to feel a lot better. While there are a few overweight people who are healthy and live to be 100, they are the exception.

Being overweight cuts years off your life. Being overweight leads to diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, sleep apnea, joint pain, and lower quality of life.

I could die tomorrow. But I have much better odds of I can keep my weight down.
