You know you have a few pounds to lose, but you’re having trouble getting motivated, right? Well keep this in mind: losing just 10 pounds can lead to some very surprising benefits,  from better sex to a bigger paycheck

Better Health: Extra pounds can lead to diabetes. By dropping 5 to 10 percent of your weight, you’ll lower your risk by nearly 60 percent.

Better Brain: Fat may make you forgetful. Shed 10 pounds and, chances are, you’ll stay smarter and more focused.

Better Fitness: For every pound of fat you lose, you move up to 4 seconds faster. Plus, your body won’t have to work as hard to stay active. In addition, your risk for injury will diminish, too, since every pound of body weight translates to about 4 pounds of force on your ankles, knees and hips (10 extra pounds means 40 pounds of pressure on your joints).
