Being fit is very necessary in this hectic life schedule otherwise we will fall a prey to many diseases and controlling weight is an important part of being fit regime. Simone Anderson Pretscherer (26) from Auckland was also tired of being 169 Kg, so she underwent gastric sleeve surgery nearly 2 years back but after this, her skin became very lose as she wrote on Instagram, “After losing 92kg, my skin of course was stretched too far and couldn’t bounce back, just over 30 weeks ago I underwent skin removal. It was the best decision of my life and I do not have a single regret.”
In the beginning, when she posted her pics on social media, she was trolled and it was alleged that her weight-loss is fake but she has now started a website – Journey to Health – in order to help those who dream of losing their weight. Simone, who weighs 77 Kg now, says, “What I’ve learned from that journey is how much I can give back and that’s what I feel this page is great for.”
The website consists of workout plans and healthy diets which were made for Simone by her trainer Nicole Alyce when she was trying to lose weight. Simone said, “The main point of the website is not so much the business, it’s about the community side of it and getting people involved. Obviously there’s the part where people can sign up and get some extra workout plans and things like that, but there is so much free content for everyone and just a space where people can inspire and motivate each other.”
Check out some pics of her:

What a confidence!
The website also gives a chance to its members to have a chat with a nutritionist, personal trainer and a doctor. She further speaks about the weight-loss program, “It doesn’t have to be boring – that’s something I really want to push – and it doesn’t have to be expensive either. And workout plans that all can be done from home with no gym membership needed, because I know, especially for mums, how difficult it is to find that time to get to a gym and to find childcare and things like that.”
The website is getting much popular in very less time and people from Canada, US and Germany are also joining it. She has nearly 250,000 followers on Instagram and has also appeared on Tyra Banks’ Fab Life show. She says, “I still don’t see myself as that, because this is something I’ve done for me and I do struggle to see myself as an inspiration. But it’s knowing even if I’ve made a change in one person’s life it is amazing and that’s something I’m so proud of.”
She is definitely a true source of inspiration and if she doesn’t inspire you, nothing can!
