She's getting back on track! Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska took to Instagram on Saturday, April 7 to announce her new business partnership with an app called Profile by Sanford, which she used to help her reach her weight loss goals after she gave birth to her second child. The app helps people reach their weight loss goals through a food tracker and an activity log, but since Chelsea is currently about five months pregnant with baby No. 3, she got a ton of backlash from fans who thought she was trying to lose weight while she is pregnant.
"Hey!! I'm so excited to be able to finally share with everyone my weight loss journey after having Watson with [Profile by Sanford] !! I'll be blogging my entire journey, including how this has helped me make better choices during my current pregnancy, telling my [fave] profile foods and recipes and so much more that I love about Profile!! Best decision I made after Watson and it's helped me so much to remain healthy during this pregnancy!!" she wrote on Instagram.
Chelsea used the app to lose about 50 pounds of baby weight that she gained when she was pregnant with her one-year-old son Watson, and now she's using it to gain a healthy amount of weight during her third. She also added a note that said the Profile app was created and backed by a board of physicians, including OBGYNs so it would be healthy and safe for her to use while she is pregnant, but fans still flooded the comments section to slam her for using the app during her third pregnancy.
"'Celebrities' do these ads all the time and they don't actually take this stuff. They get paid off of people who buy it and use their code! Be smart and please be careful and inform your OB if you plan on taking this while pregnant!" one fan wrote, while other questioned if it was safe or healthy for Chelsea to use the app while pregnant.
To calm the backlash, Chelsea took to Twitter to set the record straight. "I gained 50 [pounds] my last pregnancy and felt like absolute crap during and after. This time around I wanted to feel good, have energy and enjoy it,' she wrote. "They helped me postpartum with Watson and switched me to a healthy pregnancy plan once I got pregnant with our baby girl." Watch the video below to find out when Chelsea is due!
