Woman accused of 'fake weight loss photos' hits back

A 24-year-old woman from New Zealand who was accused of faking her incredible 'before and after' weight loss photos, bravely shared a photo of the loose skin left behind to hit back at the critics

Simone Anderson went from 169kg (26st 6lbs) to 83.9kg (13 stone 2lbs) in just 11 months.

The freelance hair stylist and hairdresser from Auckland shared her journey via her dedicated Facebook page.

She wrote 'I am officially half the person I was 11 months ago!

"Over the course of 8 weeks I lost 18kg, & on October 28th I had Gastric Sleeve Stomach surgery," she explained. "I have lost 85.7kg in 11 months."

She also shared an inspirational picture of the incredible weight loss online.



But, after people accused her of faking the "before and after" shots, she decided to share another photo – one that showed the reality of extreme weight loss: loose skin.

She wrote beside the picture: "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."

She went on: "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 explains: "I have been left with a large amount of excess skin on my stomach. Through the entire process, I have been at the gym nearly daily in the hope of toning up as I lost weight and for my legs and arms this worked but unfortunately my stomach was to far stretched to ever recover."



"I am now looking into surgery to get the excess skin removed so I can start to live in my 24 year old body I have worked so hard to get back," she says.

She has started a crowdfunding page in the hope of raising the money needed for surgery to remove the extra skin.
