    Losing weight and maintaining it, is a struggle for everyone. The temptation to eat unhealthy, calorie packed meals is a hurdle to overcome daily. Also, being active when there are other things that have to get done, it's easy to skip one workout or two until you just stop showing up.

    The following women know the challenges too well. Each of them lost half of their body weight, losing more than 100 lbs each. It wasn't easy, but hard work, focus, and dedication helped them reach their goal.

    24-year-old Diana Anguh is a chef who lost 140 pounds.

    Six years later and she has kept the weight off. For her new look, Anguh took off her wig and let her natural hair take centre stage. “It just worked so beautifully, and she just lit up. It just felt right. I thought, well, since this is a shoot about coming into yourself, why not be fully yourself and wear your natural hair?” said hairstylist Paul Warren.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_183853_lifebuzz-1938c1da7795dd2acecc63d8b028a565-thumb_800

    Childhood photos are a treasure. These images capture the moments of everyday life like eating, playing, holding a newborn sibling, or simply taking a bath. It is the moments that seem inconsequential that when you look back, you can't help but be nostalgic.

    Everyone tells you to enjoy your kids as time flies way too quickly, before you know it they are grown adults. Kids may grow up to have full beards, with kids of their own but they never quite lose that silly, quirky personality. It sometimes gets hidden in the world of adulthood.

    These very overgrown children wanted to remind their parents just how far they have come, by recreating some endearing, cute photographs. It goes to show, even if you are a grown-up, you will always be a baby in your parents' eyes.

    #1. Matthew and James Houghton were scratching their heads, trying to figure out what to get their parents for an anniversary gift. They chose to recreate childhood photos as grown men.

    At least the classes paid off.

    #6. Let's hope this big kid is no longer sucking his thumb.

    His art looks the same.

    #7. A busy house of three boys and one girl.

    The sister is thinking she needs to keep the trio in line, even into adulthood.

    #8. Father and son re-creation. Although this papa looks as tired now as he did then.

    Is that the same sweater?

    #9. Brotherly love is the best kind of love.

    Let's hope this doesn't turn into a quarrel right after.

    #10. She had no idea her baby brother was going to be bigger than her.

    She's still big sis' in charge!

    #11. Those cute cowboys never lost their mischievous smiles.

  • 20 Birthmarks That Were Covered Up With Awesome Tattoos.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_183890_lifebuzz-1a34365ca3c359873317ea2549f3f0a4-thumb_800

    Birthmarks come in all shapes and sizes and can be anywhere on the body. Unfortunately, they're not something we have any control over. Either you're born with one or you're not and what you get is what you get. With that said, it's very common for a person to be self conscious about their birthmark.

    Nonetheless, people have gotten creative and covering up their birthmarks with clever designs. Some birthmarks are completely covered while others are simply incorporated into the tattoo. Take a look at some of the unique designs below.

    #1. Some birthmarks are just the perfect shape and size to use as the base for something.

    For example, this birthmark was the perfect base for Mr. Potato Head!

    #2. A life story spread out on top of a birthmark.

    The birthmark actually makes the perfect background for this type of image.

    #3. He turned his birthmark into a map of an imaginary world.

    Although it’s not an actual tattoo since he drew it with a pen, the concept is still really cool!

    #4. When your birthmark looks like a cookie, you gotta do what you gotta do.

    And in this case it means you gotta get a cookie monster tattoo.

    #5. A beautiful flower tattoo covering an extensive port wine stain birthmark.

    The red tones from the birthmark blend in perfectly well with the flowers.

    #6. What used to be a brown oval birthmark transformed into an owl.

    Another great subject choice to cover something brown.

    #7. A hippo shaped birthmark that got scenery added to it.

    Now the hippo has a pond to drink from and some trees for shade!

    #8. If you have a birthmark that grows hair, it only makes sense to get the appropriate tattoo around it.

    Now instead of a growing hair mole, he has a hair growing Wooly!

    #9. Covering up a big birthmark isn't necessarily so bad.

    Because you get to cover it up with a big badass tattoo, like this Philippine Eagle.

    #10. Or with this even bigger wolf.

    Sometimes you just gotta go big or go home.

    #11. Not every birthmark looks the same, some may be more difficult to cover up.

    But that doesn't mean the job can't be accomplished! You just need the right subject, like this Japanese styled koi fish.

    #12. If your birthmark is more sporadic looking, choose a watercolor abstract looking tattoo to cover it.

    This watercolor rose did the perfect job.

    #13. Neutral Milk Hotel's cover art for "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea" turned into a tattoo.

    The use of this birthmark as a part of this cover art is just brilliant.

    Neutral Milk Hotel's cover art for "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea" turned into a tattoo.

    #14. A birthmark that was manipulated into art.

    You can't even tell it's a birthmark, it all looks like an intentional tattoo!

    #15. A turtle tattoo covering up the birthmark.

    How clever to go with a brown turtle shell to match the birthmark.

    #16. A mole that was transformed into an island.

    All it needed was an outline and some cool sea creatures and objects added around it.

    #17. Moles turned into the stars in the universe.

    This one is more on the subtle side, yet still very creative.

    #18. With tiny moles, you don't actually have to cover them up.

    Just be creative with what you want to add to it, like turning this mole into the iconic Marilyn Monroe mole.

    With tiny moles, you don't actually have to cover them up.

    #19. Here the mole is used not only as a part of the tattoo, but the center of it!

    Quite clever actually, now you can't even tell it was a mole.

    #20. Who needs a cover up when you can just add something next to it that gives it completely new context?

    Like this clever Pacman tattoo.

  • Japanese Snow Sculptures That’ll Make You Love Winter.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_183889_lifebuzz-5ccd94309f11f65a76f0141a95af547f-thumb_800

    Japan has been hit with heavy snowfall and winter weather. The country has been blanketed in white as the temperatures have dropped with heavy blizzards, causing traffic jams, airline flights cancelled, and the country's university entry exams in jeopardy of being delayed in some areas.

    The nation's Meteorological Agency warns the weather is not going to let up any time soon. Still, residents have taken this as an opportunity to go outside and build some very cool snow structures. And it's not just regular, easy snowmen being made here.

    The influence of the annual Sapporo Snow Festival, set to open next month in Hokkaido, may have inspired these budding artists to make more than just a man with a carrot nose.

    Winnie the Pooh and his large honey pot are sure to keep him warm during the cold, winter days.

    Totoro, the spiritual, forest friend has its umbrella ready to fight off the snow.

    Pikotaro is a Japanese comedian who loves nothing more than to don his yellow, animal print scarf and glasses.

    Pokémon had to make its appearance despite the frigid weather.

    Some parts of Japan received anywhere from 50 up to 80 cm of snow in just one night. Other cities had over two meters of snow.

    Ohmu a giant insect from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Just don't hurt another Ohmu or face the wrath.

    The terrifying and impressive Colossus Titan stands 60 meters tall. Luckily, this one is not as large.

    The Colossal Titan wants to break down the wall, which represents humanity. Not scary at all.

    Another impressive Totoro creation.

    Another Ohmu protecting all the sea insects but this time it decided to take a break on land.

    Blastoise from Pokémon is ready to battle.

    Baymax is built to care and make sure you are in optimal health.

    No Face from Spirited Away will make any adult and child jump with fear.

    Imagine waking up to No Face stalking you outside your window?

    Godzilla is trying to break out of the frozen spell.

    Minions manage to have fun, regardless of the weather.

    A much smaller but no less loveable Baymax waiting to make sure you are feeling well.

  • Celebrity Doppelgangers Who Look EXACTLY Like Their Famous Twins.

    It is not every day you come face to face with your doppelgänger, a complete stranger that looks identical to you. For some, they meet their look-alike while out shopping, at a restaurant, or even at the airport.

    The meetings are random but not less weird. For some, their doppelgängers happen to be some very famous celebrities whose faces are found on billboards, magazines, and films. This may seem cool for some but for these folks that means they are receiving some very unwanted attention, as well as some envious and mean-spirited comments.

    Still, some of the unrelated twins are choosing to make a living out of their good fortune of looking exactly like someone who is rich and famous.

    British actor Francesca Brown admits looking like Katy Perry hasn't always been easy.

    The 31-year-old said she would go to auditions in London and was constantly turned down because she looked too much like the pop star.

    She admits she is a fan of Katy Perry and works on the side as an impersonator.

    “It’s definitely given me some confidence in myself [although] I don’t see the resemblance sometimes,” says Brown. “I really admire her, that gives me confidence. We all have our own insecurities and that kind of helps them—you know, getting compared to someone you think that is great.”

    "It's not something that I really think is that important in my life. I have a lot of other things that contribute to me, and I just don't think that one's that important in the grand scheme of things," Jane says.

    To us humans, the idea of snow is lovely. It looks beautiful in landscape views and it's fun to play in. You get to build snowmen, create snow angels, and compete in snowball fights. But have you ever wondered if animals had the same fun as humans do in the snow? Or do they hate it?

    Well when the Oregon Zoo had to close on a snowy day, a worker skied in to check on the animals. What he found: a pleasant surprise as to how the zoo's animals were reacting to the snow.

    When the worker skied in, he actually found the zoo's animals having a blast in the snow!

    The polar bear was rolling around in the white, the sea otters were enjoying themselves, and the harbor seals were loving the icy swim.

    The best reaction was from Samudra the Asian elephant. This was probably his first time ever seeing snow and his reaction is so adorable!

    Watch the video below to see all the zoo's animals having a field day in the snow.
