At the age of 23, Simone Anderson was morbidly obese - weighing 169kg.
But the now 27-year-old New Zealand native not only transformed her body but her entire life.
Now a social media star with 286,000 followers, Simone has documented her health and fitness mission over the last few years.
Previously, she's shared how she has turned to meal-prepping - to stay on top of her nutrition.
“I like to spend a couple of hours each Sunday planning what meals I want for the week, then going food shopping and finally prepping meals and snacks," she has said.
And now, in a beautiful new chapter, Simone has revealed she is engaged to her partner Trent Forsyth.
Like a real-life prince charming, Trent got down on bended knee at an exclusive golf course after taking the pair enjoyed a magical scenic helicopter ride to the picturesque location.
“The love of my life proposed to me in the most beautiful place on earth,” a loved-up Simone shared on her popular Instagram page.
“It was just over three years ago I met a man that I knew one day would be my husband (even if he didn't then).
"We have experienced and achieved so much in these past few years and I cannot wait to build our lives together. Thank you for making me feel like the luckiest girl alive - I can't believe I get to call you my fiance!
"My actual dream. I can't explain how this day felt, I wish I could re-live it over and over again.”
And in images shared on Instagram and having undergone weight loss surgery, Simone is a far cry from the woman she once was.
“I know that the 32-year-old Simone, 169kg and struggling just to get out of bed in the morning, would hardly recognise the me I am now,” she says.
“In the last three and a half years, I have undergone the most epic transformation you could imagine. I don’t need to be accepted by others, I just need to accept myself.”
