Losing weight is a problem that most people face at some point in their lives. In this fast-paced, unhealthy world it’s so easy to slip and start living an unhealthy lifestyle. If you have a family, a job or other responsibilities it might be difficult to find time to adjust your life in order to get back on track.
However, these incredible 10 women found the strength and motivation to change their lives. When they did, the results were absolutely overwhelming. You’ll see.
Here are some pro tips that these women wanted to share with you. These tips helped them get on their path to weight loss… and it could help you, too.
-Create accountability for yourself—try keeping a journal to keep track of the food and calories you are eating each day.
-Hire a personal trainer—I started going to one at my gym, 24 Hour Fitness. Who better to invest in than yourself?
-Find support from a network of people who are also living a healthy life. I found mine in my boyfriend and coworkers, as they were either dieting right along with me, or at least working on living a healthier lifestyle.
-Find an exercise buddy—it not only keeps you motivated but also makes exercising more fun!
-Take your own photos (front, side, back) monthly because sometimes you see progress in those pictures that you won’t see on the scale or tape measure.
-Set small weight-loss goals for yourself—it makes the whole process much less overwhelming!
-Tell everyone you know that you are trying to lose weight and get healthy. This kept me accountable during the tough times.

A Norwegian teenager is seemingly proud of having a McDonald’s receipt tattooed on his forearm, after being “a little too active with the ladies”.
Stian Ytterdahl, an 18-year-old from Skårer, says his friends gave him the choice between the receipt, a Barbie, or his own arse.
“Now I’m a living billboard, but I think all this is just fun,” he told RB News. “Maybe it’s not as fun when I’m 50 or 60, but it’s my choice.”
The glorious tattoo
With friends like that, who needs enemies?

If you don’t know this already, Australia is a pretty dangerous place. The people may be warm and welcoming, but it’s the wildlife you have to watch out for. There are some extreme climates down under and there are some pretty extreme animals to go along with them. Some of the biggest bugs, most venomous creatures and craziest animals live in Australia.
You may not believe it now, but you will after you see this list. The next time you think of going on a trip to Australia… don’t. (Or, just bring lots of Cortisone cream, tube socks and thick hiking boots.)
YIKES. That’s exactly why a nice vacation to an indoor water park might be a much safer idea this summer. Australia is home to some of the most dangerous and toxic animals. Share this list and warns others.
There was good news and bad news for a crime reporter at a French newspaper this week. On the plus side there was a good story about an armed robber being snared by police, but on the downside, the suspect turned out to be his predecessor on the crime desk.
There aren’t many journalists out there getting rich off their work, especially not that underappreciated newsroom stalwart: the crime reporter. And for one crime beat veteran in the central French city of Blois things just spiralled after retirement.
The retired hack had gone through a nasty divorce, his son was racking up bills for school and his money problems kept growing. That’s when police say he turned to something he’d written about plenty of times, robberies, France Info radio reported.
