Lately...eating right and getting fit has become a popular trend. Well, one woman has become pretty popular all over the internet after her amazing weight loss transformation. She goes by "Amanda". She's 26 years old. Amanda started weighing at 222 pounds. By eating a high-protein diet, controlling her portions and doing moderate exercise, Amanda lost 88 pounds in one year and has kept it off. Fantastic right? What's even better, a Reddit user made a time lapse video using photos she took of herself over time during her weight loss journey. That video has received over 3-million views online. Now, her accomplishment has gone viral and can be a source of inspiration for others.
Trending locally, live stand up comedy is coming back to Dakota Stage. The headliner opening up Friday night is Scott Long out of Iowa. His show goes for a full 90 minutes. He talks about being a father of twins, growing up in the cornfields, and shares his hilarious tales from traveling all over the country. He's toured the US non-stop for 2 decades and has performed in 38 states. Organizers say, it's something different to check out and fun way to spend your Friday night.
"This is something I think anybody can enjoy. You know you hear all the time how there's nothing to do here and that's not true." says Director of Dakota Stage, Amber Rae Bernhardt. "There are things going on constantly and we just have to get people out to support them so we can have more things on. If the interest is there, the shows will be there. If you build it they will come."
