Last year, a Reddit user posted two photos of his sister to show the difference after just 90 days meth free. In the first photo, she is about 20 pounds thinner and despite her smile, her face appears rather gaunt.

A handful of viewers quickly assumed that the photos were fake, saying that the makeup, lighting, and change in hair color were responsible for the dramatic changes. They also mentioned that his post was an invasion of privacy and that it could probably get her fired if an employer ever came across it.

The woman in the photo actually responded in the thread under the username stardreamer93 to defend her brother. She confirmed her identity and even provided another photo for proof.
