A 24-year-old woman, who shed an incredible 14 stone over the course of two years, has Facebook in meltdown this week after uploading a timelapse video documenting her journey.
Simone Anderson, who has gone from 16 stone to just 12, decided to share her story with social media users when she began dropping the lbs, and now more than four million social media users have seen the rewards reaped by Simone's hard work.
Explaining her decision to go public with her personal journey, Simone said: "I have always struggled with my weight and have often resorted to easy fix diets where I would lose a lot of weight but as quickly as I lost it I would gain it back and more."
"Making this a public journey will aid so much in motivating me and keeping me accountable for my actions," she added at the time.
Week 96 Update From 169kg (372 pounds) to 77kg (169 pounds) - a total loss of 92kg (202 pounds) - I'm 181cm tall (5"11). For the who are seeing my journey for the first time this is over the course of just over one year and eight months, I began my journey on August 29th 2014 then had Gastric Sleeve Surgery on October 29th 2014 - I have completely changed my lifestyle, diet and exercise. I am forty one weeks post opp abdominoplasty, bra line backlift, breast lift & augmentation by @drrepta_plasticsurgery (so basically most of my lose skin has been removed apart from that on my upper thighs and bottom). For those that will ask workout gear is from @ipanemagirlnz and shoes are @nikewomen
Commenting on her incredible video, Simon explained: "Looking back and remembering how many tears and emotions came before I pressed "post" I am so proud of myself for every single step I have gone through and having the guts to make my journey a public one."
Simone, who has had skin removal surgery, has been inundated with remarks from Facebook users astounded by her transformation, with one writing: "It takes real guts willpower and determination to do what you have done."
