Does losing weight undo all effects of obesity?

For example, obese people are at risk for heart disease and have a lower life expectancy than people at a healthy weight. When those same people lose weight, are they at the same risk and life expectancy as people who have never been overweight? Or are they at increased risk because of the years carrying extra fat?

    No. They are no longer at increased risk when they do lose it.

    A lot of the damage has already been done to their organs. But losing weight will make the damage done not as bad. But if you were fat for a period of your life and lost weight, you'll probably be effected for the rest of your life.
