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.

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."

Take a look at this!


A New Zealand fitness blogger was blasted across social media earlier this summer when she posted photos of her incredible 81 Kg weight loss. Many people online accused her of lying and claimed that her transformation photographs were fake. 

Simone Anderson had started to track her weight-loss journey on Instagram 11 months ago and had never expected to be accused of lying about her journey. Despite her candid approach to social media, she was accused of being a liar and faking her weight loss in almost every post she shared.


So glad I took so many progress shots along the way, love looking back over them!

"I promised from day one that what I was sharing with people would be the honest journey, and it would be the ups, the downs, the goods and the bads," she told People magazine. 

For her, that meant showing people what it was really like to lose all of that weight. When she did, the reaction she received was absolutely huge:

"I needed to show that yes, I do have loose skin, and it's actually a side effect of something I am proud of. Obviously, I can't wait for it to be gone, but it's not something I'm ashamed of or embarrassed of."

The 24 year old freelance make-up artist has recently undergone surgery in order to remove the excess skin and have her tummy tucked and breasts lifted. 

Her surgeon also told the magazine: "No amount of diet or exercise is going to get rid of that loose skin. It’s going to be a challenging surgery, but I think it’s going to turn out great."

Simone had started a crowd funding page in order to help raise the money she needed for her surgery. The page is still live and at the moment it appears that she is still almost €10,000 away from her target. She travelled to Arizona to unergone the eight hour procedure and despite looking at six months of recovering is feeling very upbeat:
