On the surface, Simone Anderson seems like your typical 24-year-old.
But the New Zealander has actually undergone an incredible transformation that took monumental hard work and determination.
But there's one crucial thing about Anderson's stunning weight loss that these pictures don't show.
The dramatic before-and-after photo led to some accusations that the photos were fake, and in a bold move to counter that charge, Anderson attached another photo to that showed the effects of drastic weight loss — excess skin.
"Throughout my whole journey," she wrote in the caption, "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."
The extra skin is a side effect of dramatic weight loss, one that countless hours of exercising and healthy eating cannot eliminate. While it can be concealed under clothing, Anderson wants to be rid of it "so I can start to live in my 24-year-old body I have worked so hard to get back," according to Metro UK.
