24 Unexpected Things That Happened to People After They Lost Weight Fast

Many of us (if not everyone) has dreamed of losing at least a few extra pounds. And have you ever thought about what would happen if you lost, for example, 50 lbs fast? A Reddit user decided to find out what changes amazed people after they lost weight quickly and unexpectedly, and he got a lot of responses.

We at Bright Side couldn’t let our readers miss out on this topic, so here are some of the most interesting answers.

I get so cold now!!! I can’t get away with just a sweatshirt in the winter, I need a long sleeve, underneath a sweater, underneath my big coat before I even feel a little warm. I finally understand why people wear so many layers!!! @TonyDanzer

I’ve recently lost 65 pounds, from 243 to 178, but I’ve still got a bit to go though. I’ve already noticed a decent difference, including how people act toward me, which I was expecting, but the part I wasn’t expecting was the resentment from some of my friends, who while not terribly overweight, are now slightly heavier than me and they are not happy about it. @greyheim409

I went from 230 to 175. Alcohol hits me way quicker nowadays. @Colonel_Gipper

A lot of things others have already said. As for something new? I was shocked the first time I jumped into a go-kart and flew around the track. I thought they had upgraded the karts, then I just realized that nope, I had just lost 135 pounds. @Faromerojr

I don’t know if you’d call each one surprising on its own but in total, they combined to be a massive quality of life improvement. I slept better, breathed better, my mood improved, my pain lessened. My knees stopped hurting, I could actually get up from sitting on the floor without rolling on my side and I could just stand. My depression went away, my anxiety went away, my social phobias went away, the muscle cramps in my upper back went away, I stopped wearing through the crotches and underarms of all my clothing in short order and lost the chafing that went along with that. I can now withstand bumps without bruising so much, small scratches and mosquito bites don’t bleed forever, and I catch a cold once every few years instead of twice a year. Perhaps the biggest surprise was the amount of pain I suddenly WASN’T in, just from moving around. That’s the best. @vacawonder
