CarbGoggles said I guess I'd have to talk to people who struggle to keep a fit body and see if it's worth it to them..
They will all say 'yes'. Why would anyone spend all that time and effort to do something that they don't really want. This goes for all aspects in life.
Getting a ripped body is a lot of work, time & dedication. It should be what you want more than what anyone else wants in order to put in the sacrifice that it takes. There are those that are considered 'healthy fatties'. They are overweight but no medical/physical issues. Where as there are also plenty of skinny guys with medical issues.
If you are overweight and trying to attract a built/ripped guy then chances are slim. He could be a chaser but those are few are far between. Likes attract likes is usually what works.
If you are happy with yourself and healthy then that's that. Happiness the end goal which everyone is working towards. But we each take a different path. Some work on their bodies, others on their career, others to make lots of money, others on their community ...etc. So what do YOU want and what will make YOU happy?
