    Positive unexpected side effects to working out?

    When I began lifting weights, I started because I want to better myself inside and out, and I have goals I want to achieve. I didnt expect how happy I would be, how positive I am now. My self confidence has doubled since I began..(divorce can take that away), and I feel like I can do anything! Also, a little side effect I didnt expect was my posture has greatly improved. Being a tall girl (5'10"), Ive always had poor posture, mostly when sitting, but now I feel like my back is a lot stronger, and I find myself sitting erect more.
    Anyway, it got me thinking, have you had any pleasant yet unexpected side effects from lifting weights?

    Looking good brings along with it a lot of self confidence. I also find I can handle stress much better.
