When you go on Instagram or Facebook to get fit or weight loss advice you will most likely come across a genetically blessed person doing those extra three crunches a day to get a six pack.
The reality of weight loss and it's adaptability to your everyday person is lost in the current social media world dominated by skinny celebrities and airbrushed fashion bloggers.

This is the reason behind the success of Weight Loss Stories, a non-profit social media based community that does nothing but share weight loss stories, advice and support from across the globe.
The stories speak for themselves and positivity behind every post shows the true nature of a support network. Its Facebook and Instagram accounts hosts stories from across the world with realistic and often brutally honest accounts of not only weight loss journeys but of the person as well.
