When Simone Anderson decided two years ago that she needed to change her habits and lose the extra weight she was carrying, so got to work and shared every step of her journey online. She cleaned up her diet and exercised, leading the scale to shift from 372 pounds to 184 pounds. Awesome, right? But she wasn't greeted with messages of congratulations... Redbook has the scoop below.
She originally made headlines after posting before-and-after photos of herself on Instagram, which received a lot of criticism. Many said her transformation was "fake" for more ridiculous reasons than we can count. "Throughout my whole journey I have tried to be so honest about the whole experience and tell people it exactly as it's happened so to be called a fake hurt a lot."
But never one to back down to haters, last week, Anderson took to social media again, this time with a video showing her complete transformation throughout those two years, including photos of what she now looks like after a nine hour surgery to remove excessive skin. "When it came to posting about my loose skin well that was equally as tough. So here we go I hope this helps all the 'non believers,'" she wrote.
